I'm sure it's been said before, but I think you might find that a lot of the discriminatory behaviour is a direct result of conditioning that occurs throughout our lives. You know, the blue/pink baby clothes, the toys we get, the little two yr old girl pushing a miniture pram along side her mom (who is pushing a big pram)...

Because we're conditioned like this from a very young age (and we tend to pass these attitudes on), I don't see those people changing overnight or even for the next few generations. After all, you can't easily dictate to a parent how (s)he is going to teach their child.

    Sorry for this off-topic post here, but I've always been curious, what is a pram? I hope I'm not the only american that doesn't know what one is.

    Thanks,

      A pram is a a push chair for babies - I don't remember what you call it in the US. It's actually a miniture bed on wheels - I was thinking of a buggie which is more of a chair! But maybe the two are interchangeable.

      BTW - I'd have /msg'd this but others might be iterested.
