Almost everyone born with a gender! So IMO practically impossible!

Almost everyone is born with a biological sex, but it's debatable if we are born with a gender or not.

It's gender identity that perpetuates the species...
It's inarguably silly to prevent gender recognition.

Silly bored middle class idiots who have run out of targets to pick on and say "Oh oh oh, look at me , I am saying something different !"
or who lack the imagination to tackle the real injustices in society.

Still, nature creates freaks. Probably for our amusement or to remind us of what we really should be getting on with in life.

Interesting. I think there is a distinction between raising a child gender free, and raising the child to be open to the roles that are typical of roles of the opposite gender. But from the start these parents are instilling a secret in their child (a boy) that will make him feel different and shameful

Re: s raising a child free of gender roles a good idea?

It's too expensive in terms of clothes and toys (2 sets of each ???), plus it wouldn't be tolerated in Switzerland - how could you fill out all the forms when you don't know if you're male or female??

I suppose they are trying to go against society's norms because they believe it makes sense, but it wouldn't work for me....though it's difficult to say why...
