    It is my assumption based on their actions.

    Gender exists because of the division of labor, that has brought humanity to were it is.
    For some reason, I just don't think it's wrong.
    Actually, primates exhibit gender roles similar to those of humans. Studies have been conducted where gender specific toys (toys with wheels, dolls, etc.) have been given to young chimps. The females tended to play with all the toys but the males exhibited greater interest in the wheeled toys.

    Nothing these people have done or said would contradict the notion that gender is both biologically influenced and socially influenced. They have simply chosen not to let society influence the child and to let biology run its course. You are making groundless assumptions.

    I think that's quite a leap. As shown earlier, gender identity is inborn. Just because you're raised as a gender doesn't mean you'll identify with it. Even if you do, you may identify as a greater or lesser degree.

    Since there are actual differences in brain chemistry and formation in transsexuals (usually of the opposite sex) it may have a genetic component. We just don't know.

    Cool. And it's also a confirmation that the parents are indeed intending to let the child decide their gender identity - not forcing androgyny.

    And there is nothing wrong with that, as long as it is what they(the kids) want to do.

    Couldn't find this story on the front pages of any of our major news websites.

    Here's a story that is vastly more interesting though...

    Halifax man spends 12 years typing out numbers to 1M - CTV News

    With a stroke of the keys, Danny Johnson put the final touches on his numerical opus Saturday.


    The 61-year-old Halifax-area man typed up the spelling of every number from one to one million on electrical typewriters, resulting in 20,000 pages.


    "I feel great because I accomplished something I set out to do 12 years ago," Johnson said.


    Started in August 1999, the project raised $300,000 for Sir Frederick Fraser School, a Halifax school for the visually impaired.


    "We are so honoured really, to be part of this special time for Danny," said Bert Tulk, the school's superintendent.


    Thirteen typewriters and dozens of ribbons were used in Johnson's 10-hour typing days.


    The project was originally supposed to take only five years, but Johnson was forced to slow his pace when he was sidelined with carpal tunnel syndrome.


    "When you stop to think about it, it's a very boring type of project to undertake," he said.


    Johnson is the second person to have typed the written form of one million out. The first was an Australian named Les Stewart who only had the use of one finger and took 16 years to finish.

    I will say however, that this is just as bad.

    They called parents who make choices for their children 'obnoxious', instead telling their children to challenge how they're expected to look and act based on their sex.
    Not exactly a way to gain empathy by indicting the overwhelming majority of the human population.
