From the land of WTF: Parents keep child's gender teh sekrets

So I saw this on metafilter.com today and almost fell out of my chair.... Check out the insanity here


A couple of Swedish parents have stirred up debate in the country by refusing to reveal whether their two-and-a-half-year-old child is a boy or a girl.

Pop’s parents [see footnote], both 24, made a decision when their baby was born to keep Pop’s sex a secret. Aside from a select few – those who have changed the child’s diaper – nobody knows Pop’s gender; if anyone enquires, Pop’s parents simply say they don’t disclose this information.
“We want Pop to grow up more freely and avoid being forced into a specific gender mould from the outset,” Pop’s mother said. “It's cruel to bring a child into the world with a blue or pink stamp on their forehead.”"


So obviously these parents are hyper social constructivists... a view that, I believe, will one day bring the fall of civilization... The world does not need more Mothra Men. Happy Sunday... now I need to go hunt a bear or something =p
