Storm: a genderless baby

Discussion in 'Sports and News' started by Care Bear, May 24, 2011.

    This is a fascinating story. A couple in Canada is determined to raise their baby, Storm, as genderless until he/she commits to one gender or another, genitalia be damned. A few select people know of Storm's sex, but they have been asked to keep this information a secret. Horrible social experiment or a sign of progress? Or none of our business?

    On the bright side, Care Bear, you guys can be the first couple in America to do this!

    I swear we discussed a very similar story about a year or two ago here.

    This was the front page story on last Saturday's Toronto Star. Most reaction has been decidedly negative. Weird to make your child a sociology experiment .

    Not this case obviously, but it sounds very familiar and I'm sure I remember it from here.

    I can't remember what country the family was from. Somewhere in Europe maybe.

    I don't like the fact that the parents are asking their other young children to keep this secret -- but so much else is wrong with this story, I'm not sure where to begin.

    I vehemently disagree.

    I was afraid this was about Hannah Storm.

    Storm is obviously a girl's name anyway.

    Seriously, you need a fucking license to ride a scooter, but any moron can call themselves a parent.

    Humans are, by definition, a specific gender. 'Oh, that's a penis, but it doesn't DEFINE you.' Yes dear, it does. It makes you a male. You can be a male who likes pink and does ballet dances in a Little Mermaid costume, but you're still a male.

    The stupid parent: "What we noticed is that parents make so many choices for their children. It’s obnoxious."

    Really? I thought the child's genetic makeup pretty much constitutes the gender.

    Fucking morons.

    I had some stuff to say, but you pretty much said it.
    I hope this poor kid isn't as damaged by these dipshits as we fear he or she will be.
