It's the circle of life.. Or rather, the circle of gender...

I would consider it awesome if I got pregnant. Also, your comment is a bit off become some women are not able to get pregnant. Some women don't get their period, either.

Honestly, when my brother and I were kids, I would make him believe he was adopted about once a month, my parents told him it was fake every time but he would still believe it the next month. Kids are amazingly gullible, plus I don't think he was crying because he thought being a girl wasn't as good as being a boy, I really wouldn't like to wake up one day and realise I became a guy. Depending on how old your daughter is, I wouldn't be too hard on her, explain that what she said distraught her brother but that's it. While it's very important that parents should be honest with their children so they know they can trust them, I believe kids should sometimes be lied to by other people to learn not to blindly trust everyone

I don't think so. It's says "I had to console by bawling son AND explain to him..." So I think that he was already crying before she explained it to him. So crying because he thought he'd turn into a girl. I don't get why op would be disappointed in her son though. He's only 6 and he trusts and believes his sister so it's understandable that he would believe her. A lot of kids have been told something similar and believed the lie and gone crying to their parents; it's fairly normal. I'd say be disappointed in the sister for being so mean to her brother (and have a talk with her about bugging her brother), but no reason to be disappointed in the 6 yr old son.

I dont know about 13, but i think your son has already turned into a girl, given his reaction

Why would you be disappointed with your son? He's six years old. He doesn't think women as a whole are inferior to men; he just doesn't want to turn into one. I'm sure the idea of turning into a guy would be just as traumatizing to a six-year-old girl.

He probably does believe that. I live in one of the most gender equal countries in the world and I still have to convince four and five year old boys (I work with children) that no, boys are not better than girls and no, girls are not the worst. Children aren't blind, they are very aware of society's view on gender even if they don't understand it.

Haven't you ever heard the taunt Girls rule and boys drool? Or the song Anything You Can Do I Can Do Better? At a young age each gender thinks hey are better than the other.
