Moonbats Suppress Their Child's Gender

Not everyone should be a parent. In Sweden, a pair of moonbats are attempting to turn their child into a freak by pretending the poor kid has no gender:

Pop's parents, 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.
In an interview with newspaper Svenska Dagbladet in March, the parents were quoted saying their decision was rooted in the feminist philosophy that gender is a social construction. …
Pop's wardrobe includes everything from dresses to trousers and Pop's hairstyle changes on a regular basis. And Pop usually decides how Pop is going to dress on a given morning.
Although Pop knows that there are physical differences between a boy and a girl, Pop's parents never use personal pronouns when referring to the child — they just say Pop.
"I believe that the self-confidence and personality that Pop has shaped will remain for a lifetime," said Pop's mother.

Or rather, the psychological damaged Pop's moonbat parents are inflicting will last a lifetime. A similar experiment was tried in 1967,

when a circumcision left one of two twin brothers without a penis. Dr. John Money, who asserted that gender was learned rather than innate, convinced the parents to raise 'David' as 'Brenda' and the child had cosmetic genitalia reconstruction surgery.
She [sic] was raised as a female, with girls' clothes, games and codes of behaviour. The parents never told Brenda the secret until she [sic] was a teenager and rebelled against femininity. She [sic] then started receiving testosterone injections and underwent another genetic reconstruction process to become David again. David Reimer denounced the experiment as a crushing failure before committing suicide at the age of 38.

But moonbattery can never fail enough times to warrant giving up, or socialism would have been abandoned generations ago. All we need is a little more coercion. Maybe if we got the federal government more involved in childrearing…

On a tip from MP.

I swear, the human race is committing mass suicide at one hell of an alarming rate.

Sadly, every day I have to ask myself "What can these people possible be thinking?"

Gender is a social construct, but homosexuality is determined genetically.

Welcome to the world of left-wing "logic."

It should be a crime to do such an experiment on an innocent child. And if gender is just a social construct, why don't those feminists socially construct them into the men they so obviously want to be.

This is just another example where the left elevates severe dysfunction into something edgy and fashionable.

There's really not much difference between what this couple is doing and the parents who paint up their little girls and send them to beauty pageants.

We live in Ann Arbor, MI. That should sum-up what I'm about to write, but anyway...

When my wife (who is female) was pregnant with our first son (who is male), went downtown to a buy some baby clothes for him, she didn't at first notice that she was selecting clothes from the "gender neutral" section until a salesperson (male/female -- select all that apply) asked my wife (who is female) if she is going to raise our baby (who is male) to be "gender neutral". My wife (who is female), didn't understand the question and asked for clarification. When she received an answer, she promptly responded with, "You people are sick!" and dropped all the clothes on the floor and walked out.

I guess she's an androgynophobe and needs to go to re-education camp in a local public school.

Child abuse plain and simple.

I'd sure like to know just what the hell happened in Scandinavia. These people used to be the Vikings, for God's sake, and now look at them. When and how did this change take place??

If the article was really balanced (as opposed to relying on moral equivalnce to appear so) they would decry the parents for this idiocy. There is no evidence that sex is affected by socialization. You are born male or female, mentally and physically.
