Whatever. To each their own. I will raise my kids my way, others are free to raise their kids their way.
I know a little girl that hates everything girl. Her parents buy her boy clothes and she only likes sports geared toys. When they go to the community pool she doesn't wear a shirt and wears swim trunks (she is very young, so you wouldn't think anything of it if you saw her, just that the kid's hair is a little long. She isn't encouraged to dress like a girl or play with dolls. They just accept her as she is, like any parent would I would hope. No need make a big deal about it.

Well, I get that, but it's similar in a way. While the little girl I know has parents that will accept her no matter what she decides, they are giving her the option to be who she wants to be, where as the foreign parents are just trying to not push gender on their child. I would rather let my kids decide who they are instead of removing gender from the equation. I just think that would be too difficult to refer to friends as him or her, yet not refer to my child in the same sense.
