The frustration 😳
by: Nicole

This really bugs me as I have identical twin girls whom 9 out of 10 times are dressed the same so when I get asked this question I have to bite my tongue to stop me screaming something rude like are you blind or plain stupid also the amount of times I've had to explain if they where b/g twins they wouldn't be id oh you just have to love how people argue as you are clearly wrong as they have seen b/g twins look alike..... This coz that makes them identical 🙈

I get this all the time! I have boy/girl twin and I guess I can understand people not really knowing what identical really means but come on people! My boy has dark brown hair with brown eyes and my girl is a blonde with blue eyes. So they are complete opposite! I got tired of trying to explain to people what identical really means. I also get annoyed when people ask which side they came from. I am the one who put out two eggs so how could they come from his side lol

Seriously people?

identical question
by: Anonymous

I have a boy and a girl and I get "Are they Identical?" all the time. I used to say, nope, 1 boy/1 girl. Then i would get the head tilt and say, um, they can't be identical, one has a penis. lol.... they usually get it at that point but this one lady I had to explain identical means identical in everyway.
