Yeah, pretty much.

But it's not our fault.  Most of us were traumatized by well-meaning
matronly types during our infanthood.  You know the ones:  always
hugging and pulling and pinching and patting and swinging and bouncing
and bobbing and rocking and generally smothering us with their
stereotypical idea of what mothers and grandmothers and aunts ought to
do with little baby boys.  We hated it.  If we could have articulated
the words, we would have told them "Just leave us alone and let us play
with our Fisher Price MG TF 1800s!  Go knit, or something."

Guess what color they were always dressing us in?
