Just that. She said he had big balls but a small willy (while I was changing his nappy). Why would you say that about a 4 month old baby boy? angry

Am I being over sensitive? I feel like this is just the start of awful sexual stereotypes put on him. sad

How strange. My dad (who is lovely, lovely) made a comment about DSs willy when I was changing him once. I can't remember what it was - not about size. I think it was because he was embarrassed and didn't know what to say. Of course you just don't say anything but some people don't have that filter. Perhaps it was that?

Simple solution, tell her she's got crap tits

This... And as for her comparing her sons penis with your baby's.. I've heard of "competitive parenting" but that really takes the piss.

Male genitalia - always a source of mirth. Few brave enough to ridicule a girl/womans nether religions though..

Me and my firends had a mad run of baby boys. It'd be "come on then, let's have a look" then nod and agree it was impressive.

It was a running joke.

I had a woman peering over DS when I was weighing him at the health visitor sessions. I walked a bit around to hide his penis and she came closer and peered right over me looking at him laying their naked. The hv was a bit shocked too, so I got the wipes and covered him and looked at her with a "WTF are you doing" look. I don't think she realised what she was doing and kind of walked off embarrassed.

Honestly, what is it with people and baby's willys? They're all different like different shaped noses.

Ah, same problem as DH, then wink

ChunkyChicken Thu 07-Mar-13 14:51:19

No floggingmolly not 3 of anything, his willy is so substantial in size it is, apparently, so big it is as long as his legs & he could therefore be a tripod - I.e have 3 legs. I obviously watch childish humoured programmes to understand this smile

"it's a very different shape to your brothers he must had got it from His fathers side"

Ahaaaaa haaaahahaha grin

Tears rolling down my face.

eltsih - I really want to meet your mother grin

Zara1984 Thu 07-Mar-13 13:24:47

And Donder!! Haha. Ok I feel better now about being cross. If she mentions it again (or similar crass comparisons) I am going to tell her off.

Not going to tell DH though or he'll be furious confused

A friend of mine used to comment on my DS's willie all the time.

He was about 2 and she just started going on about what a huge willie he has and then compairing his willie to her 8yr old son's willie shock

She called her son's willie a peanut and my son's a whopper, I was mortified especially as she did this all in front of her son as if it was a big joke shock

Needless to say she is an ex friend that I haven't seen for years now.

Very distasteful. I have a friend who comments on the size of her sons bits, he's now 13!! Got just sick of this and told her that if she made these comments to a social worker she might get a knock on the door.

Boundaries need to be kept and I would tell your friend that you feel her remarks about a child's private parts are unacceptable.

Floggingmolly Thu 07-Mar-13 12:54:11

What does he have 3 of, ChunkyChicken? Surely not willies? shock if so, he wins

JennyPiccolo Thu 07-Mar-13 12:43:09

Haha, why would you be looking at a baby's penis with a critical eye? Your friend is weird.

cumfy Thu 07-Mar-13 12:35:49

Next time comment:

Ooh nice big ears, but quite small eyes wink

ItsallisnowaFeegle Thu 07-Mar-13 12:16:43

My DP likes to say how our tiny baby has a big willy. I just say yes dear it's already much bigger than yours wink

I'm sorry your friend was so tactless and unnecessary to boot.

I don't think it's U to be pissed off full stop. No need to comment on a tiny persons genitalia.

DonderandBlitzen Thu 07-Mar-13 12:11:04

Could you say "ooh your son has moobs!"

Feminine Thu 07-Mar-13 11:58:50

Your friend, op is an idiot.

Question your friendship from now on. If a friend can make such a crass and ignorant comment about his penis, I'd be wondering about her opinion on anything from now on.

So of course you are not being unreasonable.

It's just odd

Ds4 is 5 weeks old and I spent hours listening to the women in the next bed to me go on about her newborns massive balls, the whole family were at it. Also how "contented" he was at the grand age of 3 hours while my 2 day old screamed in the background grin

ChunkyChicken Thu 07-Mar-13 11:33:09

I have a 16wo DS and a 2.10yo DD. I have honestly never thought to look at a naked baby/baby being nappy changed and compare genitalia. But then, I wouldn't necessarily compare any physical aspect of a baby - they'll all different one way or another!! I might possibly say something like 'DS has a sticky out belly button, so does DD, but your dc doesn't.' Or 'DS loves getting naked for a nappy change, just like DH' although obviously DH doesn't wear a nappy grin

I would find it a very strange comparison to be made, regardless of whether it was favourable or unfavorable.

Having said that, a friend with 2 DS once commented that her youngest was a tripod... But I think that's different because it was her that raised the subject & making the comparison iyswim.

YANBU.

RedHotRudieParts Thu 07-Mar-13 11:10:19

Jesus christ, i'd have catsbummed her into oblivion.

Mind you if it wasnt socially acceptable for women to put down / laugh at men who arent lucky enough to be blessed with a huge willy it probably wouldnt be an issue. wink

Flobbadobs Thu 07-Mar-13 10:47:54

Weird weird weird!
Who on earth has conversations about a baby's genitals? I'm afraid I wouldn't have been cross OP, I would have said "what the fuck are you on about?" And laughed in her face...
Some people feel the need to comment on everything...

Floggingmolly Thu 07-Mar-13 09:21:00

The fact that she saw fit to compare and contrast is strange enough in itself, Girl, whoever actually "won" the competition.

comingintomyown Thu 07-Mar-13 09:19:16

I am so glad I dont have a willy to worry about

Thats revolting Tiddly

OP YANBU

GirlWiththeLionHeart Thu 07-Mar-13 09:08:25

Do you think you would've been as upset if she had said your ds had a bigger willy than her ds?

OP I totally get your crossness; when my sister first saw DS being bathed she came out with "Oh he's got such a tiny willy, it's sooooo small!" hmm

She didn't mean it nastily as such, but her sons have 'famously' large willies (again hmm ) and I've heard all about them numerous times...
Tbh I think she'd rather they were less well endowed, she's rather sick of her DSs willy competitions and coming downstairs to breakfast to find them comparing erections... grin
