Tell me what doesn’t look right about the picture above. My dad, a fanatic fisherman, looked at this picture later, disgusted, and said “You’re holding that FISH like a BABY!”

It all made sense while reading “The Female Brain,” by Dr. Louann Brizendine, M.D.:

“One of my patients gave her three-and-a-half-year-old daughter many unisex toys, including a bright red fire truck instead of a doll. She walked into her daughter’s room one afternoon to find her cuddling the truck in a baby blanket, rocking it back and forth saying, “Don’t worry, little truckie, everything will be all right.”
