  • I COMPLETELY disagree with it. We were all created the way we are for a reason and they are completely hiding it. Stupid

  • I think it's a bit too extreme just to prove a point.

  • It's their decision. I wouldn't do it. But those who need to know know and it really isn't up to the rest of us. We raise our kids our way, and they theirs.

  • I'm sure the child won't have any trouble figuring out what he or she is,lol... The parents can only control what others see, not what the child will feel. Eventually anyway.

  • I think it's interesting. It annoys me that when I show people pictures of my son in a "pretty dress" (that he's obviously extremely happy to be wearing), their first reaction is inevitably, "That will make a great blackmail picture." And when I show them my daughter in the same dress, it's "Aww, she's so cute!" I don't like the discrepancy, and I think that's what these parents are trying to bring awareness to--that kids are NOT free to choose, despite everyone saying they are. It's awesome that they're willing to stand up for their beliefs that way. And I don't think it will hurt the child at all, as he/she will be able to determine on his/her own when to disclose gender. Or not, since that kind of thing matters not at all to children.

  • Just strikes me as a couple of people looking for attention. Stupid thing to do ; making your own child into some freak-show experiment for the public to view.

  • wow those poor kids are gonna be messed up! imo being a girl or boy is something that allows a child to fit in to one group or the other and we all need to fit in somewhere

  • Its extreme..
    I see that one child (a boy) has long hair with bangs--- did the child CHOOSE to have those bangs..hmm?
    My daughter has "boy toys" & a few boy clothes (like buzz shirts, blue/white conductor overalls).. But she is still very aware she is a girl.

  • What will they do come potty training time; show him/her how to stand & aim, or sit? The dumb asses. Some people will do anything for attention, even if it means using their children to do so. Prime example: Kate Gosselin. Parents like these people need to think of how their actions will affect their children later on in life, before "conducting experiments". The're kids; not lab monkeys.
