I think the biggest misconception is that, we say the child will Â«chooseÂ» its gender. First of all, gender is a social construct, it cannot be chosen; society choses it. second, the child will not choose its sex. But most importantly, gender is not an isolated concept; it is constructed on sex, which is hormonal, biological. Thus, the hormones in Pops body and brain, felt as urges and drives, willÂ«choseÂ» the Â«genderÂ» in fonction to its sex. Feminists still fail to see, that gender can only exist if sex differences exist. At point Â«0Â», no cultural criteria can reproduce society biologically. If there was only Â«genderÂ» reality (feminist theory), a man and a woman on a stranded island would never find out their sexual link and procreating potential, which is hard to accept. There are differences between men and woman which is not a construct but a biologival structure for survival

same thing happened in Finland, read about it last year... the child is called Ru if I remember right. wonder how they're getting along nowadays. also, the parents aren`t called mom and dad, they`re the fox and the wolf. they don`t want the child even know about genders.

Kimikio: No they won't. That`s exactly what they`re trying to avoid. I don`t get why this is even a minor deal. Who cares? They`re not treating the baby like an experiment, leave them alone.
