Gender Issues

Last night, a little boy who's been coming to my karate class for a few weeks asked me my name. I told him, and an expression of puzzlement flitted across his face, followed in quick succession by disbelief, comprehension, embarrassment and amusement.
ME: You thought I was a boy, didn't you?
BOY: Noooo...well, I did a bit. *thinks* So if you're a girl, how come you've got a motorbike?
Then he and his brother and cousin came out to look at the scooter and were suitably impressed, especially when I pressed the button on the key that opens the seat remotely.

A few minutes earlier, the same child asked me a question to which I foolishly replied "Because I'm a ninja!" He thought about this for a moment before riposting "You're a ninja...in the toilet!"
