Brandey Bailey of Bailey Living said that it is frustrating to have people refer to her daughter, Ivey Snow, as a boy. Brandey said that when Ivey Snow was younger, she was called a boy constantly. Bailey chalked it up to the fact that her daughter doesn’t wear pink, have long hair and doesn’t have her ears pierced. Now that she’s nearly 3-years-old, Brandey wonders why people refer to Ivey Snow as “him/he.”
Brandey took Ivey to the park and filmed her going down a slide in the park and a woman repeatedly referred to her youngest daughter as a boy. At the park, Bailey cut to the footage of a woman telling her grandchild, “Wait until the little boy gets out the way” and “he’s gonna be coming down.”
Following that interaction, Brandey and Ivey went to the store and a woman complimented the child on her behavior and said, “he is so well behaved.”
Brandey added that when she went to McDonald’s through the drive-through, a woman looked in the backseat and said, “aww, he’s cute, does he want an ice cream cone?”
Brandey said she wasn’t sure if she should be so irritated with people mistaking her daughter as a girl and would like to refer to her as the correct gender.
