Best Answer

If the parents were truly serious about fighting gender issues why would they subject their child to a circus side show.  Heck, they could change their own looks to make the point.  People can get sex changes.  They should make the point using themselves NOT the child.

It’s a stupid move because gender has never been the issue.  It is discrimination based on gender that creates the problem.  There is no such thing as being gender neutral. WTH???

Why would they go through such extraordinary lengths to suppress the choices of nature. Gender distinguishes the reproductive roles of the very parents that are leading this foolishness. Plus gender is distinctively different from sexual preference.  

This is just too tiring!!!!!!

They are crazy...and selfish to boot!!!!

    • Ok so here are my questions:
      1. Was the baby born with both male/female genitalia?
      2. Why are they speaking on the childs behalf and referring it as a he?
      3. What is the big deal as to why they have decided to do this, is it motivated with intentions to gain money and fame?
      4. Is there a deformity there and this is why they want the child to make its own decision later?

      I too think they are a basket case.

    • Neicy, you make some good points.

      I don’t understand the hype around gender identification.  If a baby is born with a penis, then it is a boy..if a baby is born with a vagina, then it is a girl.  My question is are the hormones messed up so when that baby grows up it questions it’s sexual identity?

    • The baby was born with normal genitalia, they are going to keep it secret.  

      I think this is awful to use your child to prove a point. Kids have enough things to deal with as they grow, this will eventually make him/her a kid that other kids will ridicule.  

      I read the story last week and wanted to smack those parents. They ARE the ones making gender a big deal!

    • Yeah.... this is crazy! The baby has a gender just as it’s older sister does. Why do this with their second child and not the first?

    • Cathie...I might be wrong..but I thought I heard them say this was their 3rd child.  So...as you said...why do this for the 3rd child.  They said they allowed their second son...wear his hair long and in braided pig tails.  I’m sorry.....these people are using their children as experiments.  

      I call it child abuse....

    • IMO, the first rule of parenting is to put the best interest of the child FIRST.   In what sick, twisted world is exploiting your child as an experiment in the best interest of said child?  This is a confused (and possibly angry) adult in the making.

    • I beleive that you are one or the other, and the parents have some issues, I guess if later one if a person has a gender issue then that is then, why cause such issues in a normal child. Yeah im saying the parents are nuts too!.

    • For the life of me cannot comprehend why parents would do such a thing to their child?  

      God didn’t give life to you for YOU to decide which sex you are going to be...for those who are born genderless...those are issues with development but in the end...we are all suppose to be one or the other...and in the end...God is the one who says who is going to be what...whether you believe that or not...it’s the truth!
