This is something serious, and very risky, according to Dr. Koplewicz, a psychicatrist from a Huffington Post blog. The article refers to a Canadian couple who decided to raise their third child, Storm, without a gender. I will refer to the child as the Baby, instead of “it” just how Dr. Koplewicz referred to the Baby.
Sex and gender are not synonyms. Sex is usually defined by the genitals of the person. However, gender is something that we are taught. Gender is usually, broadly speaking, referred to as masculine or feminine. Of course, males are suppose to be masculine and females, feminine. What happens when a male is feminine? or vice versa? he is suddenly the point of attention, the cause of the end of the world, an abomination. However, why do we have such rigid gender roles? are they beneficial at all?
