Pink Explains Raising Her Daughter Gender-Neutral!

Pink Explains Raising Her Daughter Gender-Neutral!


#ParentingGoals!

You have to know Pink by now! She’s a total bad ass and a huge LGBTQ activist. She has a plethora of gay fans, myself included, and to me – has always blurred lines of figuring out if she herself was not only an ally of the LGBTQ community, but also a part of it. In her discography, she has countless songs of being bullied or feeling less than; she’s the underdog we’ve all been and can certainly relate too. It’s no surprise that Pink is still relevant and making headlines.


According to Buzzfeed, Pink spoke with Mirror and told about raising her daughter as a gender-neutral child. Pink’s label-less household is one which may eventually mirror many homes across the globe. Pink mentions that her daughter, Willow, has even spoke about being married to a woman:


“Last week, Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like, 'Great!' "... And we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready."


Pink also discussed that Willow’s school has a gender-neutral bathroom. Way to go, California!

"The bathroom outside the kindergarten said, 'Gender Neutral, Anybody,' and it was a drawing of many different shapes," she said. "I took a picture of it and I wrote: 'Progress.' I thought that was awesome. I love that kids are having this conversation."


Do you believe the path to progression is having children live as gender-neutral?!

In this whole blurb, nowhere is it mentioned how the is child is being raised "gender neutral."  There are no details here.  How does one raise a child "gender neutral?"  What if you have boys who want to play with cars and action figures with little or no input from the parents?  Do you beat them and force them to play with dolls and tea sets?  How is that any less abusive than parents who do the same to enforce gender norms on their children?

I have a question about this whole "gender neutral" philosophy.  Does anyone else find it hypocritical that the arguments being presented today say that the only way we can achieve social equality in this society is by eliminating everyone's differences?  Are gender abolitionists trying to make us all the Borg?

I'm not sure I'm understanding this, but I would say that if your child is a girl treat her like a girl and make her love her gender/sex so that she grows up comfortable in her own skin. If she wants to play with dolls or cars that is irrelevant; all that matters is that she understand she is a girl and there is nothing wrong with being one and the same thing for a boy.
