    What do you guys think ?

    I think i will raise my kid whatever gender he assigned by birth, until he/she gives me further evidence to recognize other avenues they independently CHOOSE to explore.

    I'm not going to refer to them as gender neutral but essentially yeah I will raise them like that. I'm not just going to automatically give the girls pink bedrooms and dolls and the boys blue bedrooms and footballs. If my daughter wants to play football and my son wants to do ballet then so be it. That's how I was brought up.

    arguments could be made that you shouldnt force or define them by gender... so they can pick their sexuality without influence lol.

    This is what my computer science teacher did. He's really hot and muscly, but I think he's socially awkward; the way he speaks is just awful

    Anyways, it was one of the rare times he actually spoke, and spoke about his life which was quite shocking, and it turns out he adopted a daughter and tried to raise her gender neutral; plain clothes, no tv (I think they had free view but his kid spent more time drawing), probably just YouTube egg opening videos as all kids watch. However eventually she began to do "stereotypical" girly things (such as playing that Stacey hand clap game and skipping-yes, they still exist I didn't even know! I wonder if the kids nowadays know what hopscotch is....)

    Anyways he came to the conclusion that it was probably influence from TV, other girls and society as a whole. One thing to note that at the time I didn't realise how ****ed up it was experimenting on an adopted daughter like that but whatever. Wow anyways, personally no; I'd let my daughter embrace whatever Gender she wants to, let her be swayed by whatever appeals to her. However if dressing up with pink clothes and playing in the dolls house doesn't appeal to her, and say idk she wants to play football or wrestling, i'd let her do hat she wants. I will neither force her to wear pink clothes nor will I force her to wear neutral clothes. Whatever my princess wants :love: .Let her embrace her gender, her sexuality and her feelings, because who am I to dictate the life of a possible (and definitely awesome as i'm the handsome father) future star.

    Should children really be able to make such an important decision? (U18)
