You know, from the books... its not really gender specific......

I call 'her' a 'she' because of the name.... but 'she' is usually wearing 'boys' clothes... at least the duck wears a tutu occassionally....

ok I stand corrected, according to wikipedia Miffy is indeed a girl rabbit. Her name means "little rabbit" and she was invented in 1955.

xposted with you cheesesarnie - sexchanges were all the rage in the 80's, perhaps that's where miffy went to before coming out again in the 21st century. It explains his/her absence.

Maisy is very definitely a girl, but she has a very ungender specific lifestyle and set of hobbies (so PC ).

What about Blue Cow?

clutteredup · 20/06/2008 21:13

So the sex change happened early on then ?
How does a rabbit go through a sex change ?

Even if you're talking about cows as int he animal then shes still a girl- because she has udders.

Blue cow actually i believe to be a cross dressing homosexual male cow - otherwise 'she'd ' be pink right?blue is a boys colour, although cows are generically female I'm to fill my glass [grn]

"with ears so long and fur so white and Miffy was her name" from my 1970's copy of 'Miffy'.

The thing I love about Maisy is Maisy's farm where she milks the cow to fed her pet cat- truly inspired!

sheepgomeep · 20/06/2008 21:21

I'm a seventies child and I'd never heard of miffy until recently.

always thought maisy was a girl

lazarou · 20/06/2008 21:22

Was Bod agirl or a boy? I think boy

maidamess · 20/06/2008 21:22

I always thought Pippin on that thing with Auntie Mabel and the aeroplane was a girl dog. But he's a boy dog. What are the chances eh?

PInkyminkyohnooo · 20/06/2008 21:22

re sex change rabbits- my pet rabbit was absolutley a boy called harry until she had kittens and became harriet..actually same thing happened to my hamster called fred..

lazarou · 20/06/2008 21:23

Poor Pippin, she's always shouting at him. No wonder he tries to run away

cheesesarnie · 20/06/2008 21:24
