There is a couple in Canada (figures right?) that has decided that except for a couple of people they are not going to tell people the sex of their child ... Storm will be raised as gender-less as possible.
Interesting idea but it isn't going to work.
Sooner or later they are going to have to fill out forms where they will have to identify the gender ... There will be boys/girls bathrooms ... There will be doctor appointments that are gender specific.
Some experts are concerned about the child having a "sexual identity crisis" .... WHAT?
Look the kid is going to know if it's a boy or girl ... Sooner or later it's going to decide whether it's more like mom or dad as it grows just like every other kid.
It will look at it's brothers and sisters, at it's friends and then decide where it belongs and which it wants to date.
Let them be ...
This is their kid ....
They aren't hurting anyone ....
The kid will be fine ....
As long as they don't try to interfere with the child actually making it's choices by trying to force it not to do things that might be gender specific. Then that could cause some issues.
I heard in one story that they are keeping the gender from the grandparents as well - but if their parents are anything like ours .... They are going to be changing a diaper and they'll find out anyways.
