Man vs Woman

Here's a conversation that took place on the way home from church last night --

Abby - Can I get the mail when we get home?
Me - No honey. We don't have any mail today. The post office is closed.
Abby - So everyone gets a vacation?
Me - Not everyone, but a lot of people do. The mailman doesn't deliver mail on Veteran's Day.
Abby - Mail person. Now they aren't just mail men, they can be girls too, Mom!
Me - Sorry. You're right.
Abby - And girls can be firefighters, police officers...

Honestly, when I was in kindergarten, they were still referred to as mailman, policeman, fireman. Girls could still do that stuff (I think), but we hadn't evolved enough back then to call them something different. Wow!
