The other day while I was listening to Huffpost Live I was confronted/entertained by a segment that was aired on gender neutral parenting. Watch the interview in it’s entirety here.
The host (Dena Takruri) and a panel of four individuals discussed the issue(s) of raising children in a gender neutral environment.
This sparked some conversation between myself and my friend and colleague Joe Martino.
We will be writing a series of posts discussing the issue of gender neutral parenting.
We will discuss issues such as:
What makes gender neutral parenting necessary or un-necessary?
What are the affects on the children both short and long term?
Is it important that men and woman have well formulated gender identities?
Are there any effects on society for both short and long term?
I am excited about the conversation that this post will bring. I believe there is much to be learned.
