New Trend: Parents Raising Gender-Neutral Kids, ‘They-bies’

If you thought that you had heard it all, you may not have yet. At least not until you read this story.

From Daily Wire:

According to NBC News, there’s a new trend in Millennial parenting: raising “they-bies,” or children who aren’t identified with either gender until they are old enough to “choose” their gender for themselves.

The idea is to shield children from “harmful” “gender stereotypes” that hardwire them to be either super-feminine or toxically male. They-bies are encouraged to dress how they feel, play with gender-neutral toys, and ask to be referred to with gender-neutral pronouns like, “they,” “them,” “their,” and “it.”

Because somehow being referred to as an “it’ wouldn’t be harmful or confusing?

How many are involved in this?

It’s still pretty rare, NBC News claims; only around 220 families — mostly upper-class, white, and progressive — are so committed to raising their children “gender neutral” that they’ve joined a Facebook support group. But the ones who are committed are really committed.

“Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn? That’s a question their parents, Nate and Julia Sharpe, say only the twins can decide. The Cambridge, Mass., couple represent a small group of parents raising ‘theybies’ — children being brought up without gender designation from birth,” NBC News reports.

The answer is clear: Zyler and Kadyn, who are twins, each have a biological gender, but that gender is kept secret from friends and relatives, and even from the kids themselves (though potty training seems like it might require an in-depth conversation). The theory is that the less they-bies know about their gender, the less likely they are to be “pigeon-holed” into a gender binary.

And how do they propose to keep this up when the child goes out the door and meets the rest of the world who will identify them by their gender?

One professor told NBC that this ‘lack of gendering’ could cause the child confusion and lead to bullying. And that it couldn’t be maintained when they have to go out into the outer world.

But the parents that NBC spoke to said that they were fine with that, that they’d rather their children be bullied than be bullies, that forcing a child to be a gender was “coercive.”

It’s not a trend, it’s fucking retarded and CPS should take the kids as the parents are purposefully in total disregard for the well-being of and setting their children up to be bullied. Kids are not EXPERIMENTS, they are a blessing and should not be set up for failure from the start.

This should be child abuse. If I were to raise a child as a dog I would not be able to. You are born a gender X Y, if you choose something different as an adult go for it

Aren’t there other ways for children to be able to express themselves without being brainwashed into accepting rigid and antiquated society gender roles? These actions are likely to leave children unsure of themselves in many areas once they become adults and walk in the real world.

This is one of the most ridiculous unGodly thoughts straight from the pit of hell! Socialist, atheistic, teaching that has no place in our families. These children will be in therapy before first grade. Not only will they not understand the. Z”bids and the bees”. They won’t know the difference.

It’s not just the parents, the media is presenting this stupidity as though it is normal and proper. We need to take back our press corps.
