Consider the following: I've intentionally picked two gender neutral names. Do you think you'd assume that the first one is mother, or the second one? If I changed the first line to Father and mother, do you think you'd assume Taylor was the father. In other words, does the order in which I write the gender specific words affect how you interpret the gender neutral names? In my story I picked less neutral names, so it should be obvious who's who, but at the time it got me thinking and I decided I'd share the thought here.
