Lilyanna has had a much more difficult time with gender specific pronouns than any of our other kids. Well, they all had the same trouble, but she's had it for much longer. We've spent months trying to explain how to appropriately use pronouns.
On the way to church on Sunday it was like a light bulb went off in her head. She started listing her friends, identifying their gender, and then assigning them the correct pronoun. And she's gotten it right ever since.
Right this minute, I'm just glad she doesn't know any trans-gender people. When she's got this totally down, she can figure out correct pronoun assignations on her own in those cases. In the meantime we're going to stick to our misogynistic patriarchal plain old currently accepted American English versions.
