Is that a Barbie in your pocket?

My neighbour once gave bad eye to my husband in the elevator because he was carrying a Barbie in his pocket.
—It’s for my daughter.
—Thank God. Girls should play with girls’ toys, and boys with boys’ toys. Otherwise they end up faggots and what not.
—Uhm, not really. It has actually been linked to genetics, with a frequency similar to that of left-handedness— says @minimalpablo.
—That’s impossible! My wife and one of my sons are left handed!
—…
I don’t know if @minimalpablo was more outraged about the homophobia or the innumeracy.

There’s a post for patrons only and tell you too in a bit about what I’m working on. I hope you like it…
