Ugh: Couple is Hiding Their Baby’s Gender From the World to Prevent ‘Gender Bias’

This is profoundly stupid on so many levels,

A British married couple are hiding their baby’s gender to protect the child from “unconscious bias,” they told the BBC Monday.

In an appearance on BBC One, Hobbit Humphrey, 38, and Jake England-Johns, 35, said they are asking friends and family to address their 17-month-old, Anoush, by the gender-neutral pronouns “they” and “them.” They said they also dress the toddler in both boy’s and girl’s clothing.

…“Eventually once our baby is old enough, they can obviously decide for themselves what gender they want to be, but for now we just want them to be able to grow up in their own little bubble,” she said.
