A couple from Britain is gaining plenty of attention after revealing how they plan to keep their baby’s gender a secret so that their child has the opportunity to choose its preference when older.
The couple confirms how they have reportedly hidden their child’s sex, despite the fact that its age has reached 17 months. Moreover, their motive for doing so is simply to protect all sorts of feelings that relate to the concept of gender bias on an unconscious level.
The child’s mum was identified as 38-year-old Hobbit Humphrey while dad is 35-year-old Jake England-Johns. Shockingly, the couple also boldly claims that the baby’s gender is also hidden from the child’s grandparents too who are still clueless about the sex for months now.
But, Hobbit’s mum did recently reveal how she only found out the baby’s gender by accident as she changed its dirty nappy when they were 11 months old.
In the same way, many viewers were stoked to find out how the couple doesn’t mind dressing the baby in clothing that is meant for girls as well as boys. Therefore, they alternate between the two, keeping in mind the gender-neutral concept too.
The couple who currently resides in Keynsham, a location near Bath, say that they are doing everything possible to live in their own little bubble and protect their child too.
“We want to let the child be who they are,” the couple boldly revealed.
This way, the couple strongly holds the opinion that their decision is one of the only ways that would prevent their child from being treated in a different manner, upon the basis of its gender.
Both husband and wife, who work as performers at the local circus, added how they feel it is their child’s right to choose whatever gender as well as the preference of pronoun when they grow older.
