Older brother Jazz, 6, was singled out by adults and other children fairly relentlessly for his predilection for things identified as girly – pink poofy dresses, hair in braids, and nail polish. Ironically, he is exhibiting the kind of stereotypical behaviours his parents wish to avoid – only for the opposite sex.
The public reaction to Jazz’s wardrobe choices got to the point where his mother admitted that when she was pregnant with her third child, “it was really this intense time around Jazz having experiences with gender.”
It's child abuse. Self identity is crucial throughout your entire life and they're not doing the kid any favors.
No, child abuse would be cutting off part of the kids genitalia, and sprinkling the kid with water, and indoctrinating the kid with some religious beliefs.
This is more of a fashion choice at 4 months of age.
I really couldn't care less. Don't even know why I am posting in this thread. Probably cause Shadowshiver is cool beans and I feel like a suck up today. But not because I give a rats patoot about some hipster dorks screwing with their kids who won't remember this crap anyway.
If people messed with my kids the way it sounds like people messed with their older son, yeah, I just might prove a point.
From what I can see it does the kid no damage, but it might do a lot to make people stop and look critically at why they would NEED to know the gender of a child.
