I’m not exactly sure where to start with this one. Perhaps it’s comforting to know it’s not just Americans who do stupid things.
As reported by the Daily Mail, a young couple in the West Midlands of England are raising their son Max to be gender neutral.
In the morning, “dressed in a red checked lumberjack shirt and rust-coloured jeans, he shouted ‘beep beep!’ and giggled with delight while pushing a plastic motorbike around the living room of his family home.”
But in the afternoon, “he swiftly grabbed a blonde-haired doll, sat her in a pink plastic pram, and took her on a short walk, stopping only when it was time to pretend to breastfeed her.”
I have so many questions for these parents. Does your son have “gender neutral” genitalia? How will you potty-train him?
As a one-year-old, what other decisions do you think he should have the freedom to make? What if he doesn’t actually want to live in your house anymore?
