Parents keep child’s gender under wraps - Yahoo! News
The headline isn't accurate. It's the child sex that's being kept a secret, not the gender. The baby's gender - which is psychological - is not yet known until it begins to express itself more.Originally Posted by Yahoo
I think it's an interesting idea. As soon as we assume that the sex of male or female means that the gender is male or female, we start applying all of these norms to the baby. Like boys wear blue and girls wear pink, or girls play with barbies and boys play with GI joes.
This baby is now free to be what it wants to be without people telling it that it can't do something based on its sex. I'm wondering though what's going to happen once school approaches. Hopefully these parents can go the private school route.
