A recent article featured a couple that has chosen to raise a genderless child, at least until it picks what it wants to become. One time, I encountered these folks at a mutual friend’s home. I also met their two other children Ukulele and Beavergrass. It’s supposed to be a brave and enlightened move, this neutering. But I suspect the philosophy hails from the same scratchy ilk as those angry vegetarians who want brunch at Cowbell. Here’s what’s truly brave: Letting your boy be a princess if he wants to. And a neighbourhood that delights in his happiness? That’s enlightened.
