    Wait a minute.
    A law saying parents aren't required to put gender on the form when registering birth says they're 'genderless babies'? Puts psycho-babble in the lives of children?

    What difference does it make to you, if a stranger's baby has an empty tick-box on a form you will never see? Dressing it in pink or blue will change the way you will react to it and treat it, because you will impose your idea of "gender appropriate" responses where none are required. Interestingly, a century ago, the colours were reversed, and pink meant boy.

    I am not surprised. Just sorry it has reached this point before good people say enough.

    This whole gender bender crusade has been in full force for the past decades. Most indoctrination has been in public schools. and campuses receiving federal funding.

    Some of the things the medical community are promoting when it comes to young people in regard to gender identity is nothing but pure child abuse.

    Minds of mush at such a young age being filled with crap and drugs to suppress who they really are.

    I hope there is a special place in Hell for those who have been part of this disgusting agenda.

    You have to understand, Max, the conservative's need to regulate everything in our pants is all about control. Pure and simple. Everything they want to regarding sex and gender stems from that.

    Allegations of child abuse, wishing people to go to Hell, and calling your opponents' positions "disgusting." These are some extraordinary claims you are making. Care to back them up with some extraordinary evidence?

    There is a plethora of information out there on the web in regard to this topic for anyone interested in the truth instead of being sheeple .

    I did my research, why don't you try doing your own and prove me wrong.

    Re: Genderless Babies- Good Thing or Bad?

    Less than 1% of children are diagnosed with Gender Dysmorphia. 11% of children are diagnosed with ADHD. Should we be telling children they can be "behaviour fluid" and don't have to conform to societal standards until they decide whether they have ADHD or not?

    Gender is an important part of a child's identity, and by denying children that I suspect that harm is being committed. Gender stereotypes should not be enforced, and people should be aware of how they interact with children to minimise the development of bias, but that is not the same as denying children a key part of their development.

    You made the inflammatory accusations, you produce the evidence to back them up. I await them.

    Well, it makes sense to allow this.

    Assuming you agree with the science which says it is possible for a person to have a different gender mentally than their biological body would suggest, it logically follows that children have been and will continue to be born with biology that differs from their gender.

    Taking this to the max, I know there are people who make specific effort to raise children in a environment that tries to not influence their mental development towards any gender.


    That kind of thing does make me wonder to what degree gender is formed by nurture as opposed to nature.
    Education.
