This question

https://parenting.stackexchange.com/questions/20391/why-do-people-in-media-always-refer-to-babies-as-females

Is about English usage. It's not about parenting. It would possibly fit on English.stackexchange.com

So what do I do to begin the migration process? I flagged it but the migration option was to meta., not english., so it's a bit confusing.

    Since it's absolutely opinion based, and not true for a large majority of English speakers, it would be closed immediately there. So, better to not migrate.

    I doubt ELU would ever be a target for this site (you never have more than 5 targets, even for Stack Overflow), but Beta sites have only their per-site meta as a target - migration targets are added at graduation.

Quoted from the StackExchange Meta migration FAQ. Emphasis below is mine:

If you don't have 3,000 reputation, the site isn't in the list of available migration targets, or the question got closed without being migrated, do not fret. You can also flag the question for moderator attention and request that they migrate it for you. Simply explain in the reason which site you want it to be migrated (please select one site; don't list all possible sites it could go to).


In this particular case, it's not actually clear whether this is an English language question, as some of the comments note:

  • Where I live (different language), most unborn babies are referred to as "he"
  • here it's almost always the other way round
  • in Polish, we have such a wide range of pronouns that there is almost always a good choice

I'm going to defer to @anongoodnurse regarding migration since she has much more experience with ELU than I do :)
