NEW YORK Ridiculous or ultra-enlightened? A Toronto couple's decision to keep the gender of their 4-month-old baby a secret has touched off a sometimes nasty debate over how far parents should go in protecting young ones from society's boy-girl biases.
Kathy Witterick and David Stocker recently landed on the front page of the Toronto Star, explaining that they hope their third child, Storm, can remain untouched by the connotations of pink versus blue, male versus female, long enough to make up his or her own mind.
The decision has online haters and supporters of the family on hyperdrive. Child development experts, meanwhile, question the impact on the cherubic infant later in life and whether the couple has gone too far in their quest for gender neutrality.

These people are idiots.
“how far parents should go in protecting young ones from society’s boy-girl biases.”
Speaking of bias....
Some people should not be parents.
I thought all Canadians were gender secret.
Lets hope that “it” will be so confused that it won’t procreate.
If anything is absolutely true, it is the fact that if you don’t procreate, your lineage will die out.
Ridiculous or enlightened? How about cruel and perverted.
I'd bet money that in the Witterick household, David is forced to pee sitting down.
>>long enough to make up his or her own mind.
And on that glorious day, a penis or vagina will magically appear on baby Storm (or wil it be toddler Storm, or pre-teen Storm, or teenager Storm, or even adult baby Storm?).
If a boy, maybe they dress him in girls clothes to see if he feels more comfy.
More modern mental illness.
None of this is the kid's fault. Really, it's the parents who shouldn't be allowed to procreate. Can anyone else see years of intense psycho therapy in this poor kid's future?
Like Savage always says, "Liberalism is a Mental Disorder."
But that is nature and natural selection.
In the wild, the children don’t survive if the parents are stupid.
It is ironic that secularist Liberals believe in natural selection... except when it applies to them.
“The decision has online haters and supporters of the family on hyperdrive.”
No bias in this reporter. I thought the antonym of “supporter” was “opponent.”
“Speaking of bias....”
Good point! And I’m sure they’ve embraced and flaunted their preconceived “holy, higher planed enlightenment” everywhere anyone will give them the attention. Idiots.
