Gender Neutral Parenting Has Taken Gender Neutralism Too Far
Gender Neutral? When Will The Craziness End
In today’s society new parents are now referring to the sex of their new baby as just “baby”, not a girl or boy. Parents are seriously considering bringing up their children as gender neutral. They stress this to raise their children without the life-limiting shackles of being assigned a pink dolly or blue car at birth.
The idea of gender neutrality is an odd and worrying concept to many especially to those parents who have successfully raised their perfect child as capable humans without worrying about this ideology. Gender neutrality can lead to an extreme end where children are not being told what sex they are and are unsure about their identity, banned from planning with toys they crave and only dressing in grey or khaki babywear.
This issue has reached the celebrity world where many individuals look for their ideologies. The singer Paloma Faith has said she will be raising her children as gender neutral. Additionally John Lewis has announced they will be dropping the labels of “boys” and “girls” in their children’s wear.
It is a very real issue and talked about extensively in the media as well as in programmes and documentaries. It promotes low self-esteem and confuses children who at a very young age already struggle with finding their identity without now feeling confused about their gender. A boy is a boy and a girl is a girl until they are of a reasonable age where they can make up their minds if they feel they are the wrong gender. Parents should celebrate their children not hinder before they have learnt to walk.
