The other day the Daily Mail had another piece about a British child being raised without gender, to avoid all the inferred negative connotations and “stereotypes” that might supposedly ruin the child if people treated a boy as a boy, or a girl as a girl.
This gets added to the story last year about the Canadian couple who were raising their child without revealing the gender to family and friends for the same reasons.
It’s amusing that these progressive parents think they are so much smarter than eons of human history, whether you believe the 250,000 years as evolutionists/intelligent design advocates would say, or the 10,000 years strict Biblical creationists might say. What successful culture ever has found it worthwhile to hide the gender of the child to improve its upbringing? But who cares about everything that may have come before, who cares about what seems natural and normal. These geniuses know better.
And isn’t it funny how it seems to be male children whose gender gets hidden to avoid stereotyping?
There’s a good chance that Sasha here will grow up to be someone with masculinity somewhat less than Bob the Builder, let’s say. But these parents, rather than see causality and understand that what they did may have contributed to the outcome, will instead in their vanity see what they did as being justified, since the boy was obviously not your stereotypical male.
