At the homeschool convention, in and empty corridor, I heard someone whistling behind me so I turned around to see who it was. I found a young girl not too far from me, and no one else. When I saw her, I thought, “Well, it couldn’t be her… she’s a girl.” It was then that I realized, girls don’t whistle. Why is that? Why is it only guys, and mostly old guys who whistle?

As I kept looking around, I finally found the culprit. A dad slightly older than me rounded the corner, lips pursed in a happy little whistle. Gender expectations satisfied, I turned around and kept moving.

But I couldn’t help but wonder… why don’t girls whistle?
