    lol me too. I was like what could that possibly be! My DS gets dude or bug more than anything. And DD gets Bub.

    I get more upset when I hear people calling their girls witches or something that rhymes with it.

    My take on Meow's point was that people use the term princess far more often than they use the term prince (e.g. there are far more T-Shirts etc with princess on them than prince), is the difference in the amount it is used in itself indicative of sexism? I have heard parents say prince about their little boys, but other people are far more likely to refer to a little girl as a princess than a little boy a prince.

    I am not sure it really matters, maybe there are just fewer cool princes around these days to associate little boys with?
