Quote of the Day, Presented Without Further Comment

"[Children] also seem to learn, uncomfortably young, that females are 'other.' When Barbara Davies asked four- and five-year-old children to choose items that would show a martian what human beings were like, the girls chose a mix of female and male objects (such as guns and dolls), whereas the boys chose almost only male items."

-Cordelia Fine, in Delusions of Gender
