I guess I will chalk this up to a lesson. Fathers day is for the Male gender and Mothers day is for the female gender?
Got it! I hope I don't offend my childless friends.
I don't think ANY of us said this is true, or even that we necessarily agree with her. We just don't understand why you're so upset about it, and we think you should just internally roll your eyes at her.
Just because SHE SAYS something, doesn't mean you have to do it (buy your son a Father's Day gift), or that it's true.
If what you'd like is some advice on how to let her roll off your back, we might be able to help.
My personal tactic for those situations is to be Teflon. And to remember that I can TELL her anything I like. I can say, "Oh, yes, it might be a good idea to get a gift for my son on Father's Day," and I can DO absolutely nothing like that. I can lie to her all I want!
Or I can say, "Oh, hmm, I'll have to think about that."
