Today, for April’s Fools, I sent A. a note saying I’d been looking for ideas for when we get married, and “what do you think about this as an inspiration page?” In reply he said, “That’s actually kind of scary. And it makes my news a little ill timed.”, and then proceeded to explain that he was moving back to England for a job opportunity.

I’m not sure how it happened so perfectly, but I think we just exemplified a rather amusing gender bias. Why yes, we do regularly mock stereotypical hetero-normative behaviour, even while embracing it, why do you ask?
