Gail Thomas says:
My father called me Hank. “Who’s Hank?” “He’s a baseball player.” “But, I’m a girl.” “You have a butt like Hank Aaron. I’ll show you next time we watch him play,” my dad said, like it didn’t matter that he was comparing me to some fat ass male baseball player.
Isaac Slutzky says:
My 3rd grade gym teacher always told me that I should speak with a lower voice; mine was too girly. My father heard this, and marched into class screaming, “What the hell do you mean my son’s voice is too girly?” never breaking from a perfect Mickey Mouse vocal impersonation.
