Part of me wants to think that I get it, I see what they're saying and what they're doing but the other part of me thinks they are f'ing crazy parents are jacking that kid up! I get the premise but I think it's terribly misguided. As parents we encourage and support and guide. Allowing a child to be completely without ideas and limits I believe can be confusing and difficult. Plus? Science is science. Just because you have a particular body part doesn't mean you must adhere to certain social rules but it doesn't change the fact that you DO have that particular body part. I don't know. I just don't get where they're coming from.
Drew is a girl. She has a traditionally boy's name. She only wants to wear skirts and ride bikes. She wants to dig in the dirt and wear a sparkly necklace. I don't care what she does. She's a kid and I want her to be happy. William is a boy who is sweet and sensitive and I think he'll love his mommy dearly til the day he dies. He used to love to wear Drew's tutu and sing Broadway hits. Now he loves trucks and the color blue. He's said that he may want to be a black widow for Halloween because it's awesome that black widows are all girls. I don't care what he does. He's a kid and I want him to be happy. There is no denying, however, that HE is a BOY and that SHE is a GIRL. To make their gender an issue is an issue I believe. And now, because this has been made such a big whooptie, that poor family - the parents, the two young siblings, and the genderless baby - are going to be sought after and I just can't imagine that's beneficial at all.
If you haven't seen the story, here it is:
What do you think about this?
BTW, I totally think it's a boy.
