What do you think about this couple in Toronto raising a "genderless" baby?

Asked by Seelix (14752 points ) May 24th, 2011

This past Saturday, the Toronto Star printed this article about a couple in the city who are raising their third child, who is now four months old, as neither male nor female. Apparently, the only people who know the sex of the baby are the parents, their two older kids, one family friend and the two midwives who helped mom deliver (there was no mention of a pediatrician, which leaves me wondering a little).

There was such a response to the article on the Star website that a follow-up article is in today’s paper. Some of the reader comments on the original article are inspiring, while others are just downright mean.

I immediately thought of my fellow Jellies when I saw the article, because I thought you’d be able to provide some interesting ideas about it (and also because you likely haven’t seen the article yet), so I wanted to share it with you all and see what you think.

So what’s your take on this story?
