Gender Neutrality

http://s.telegraph.co.uk/graphics/projects/parenting-gender-neutral/index.html

Astonishingly people believe that ” In this ‘gender-neutral’ trend, we are running the risk of losing gender identity completely.” I can’t see that this is even a risk. Assuming for amoment that it is a risk, does it matter? No point expending much energy debating this non-issue.

In an otherwise great piece the author expresses that “Strict gender segregation in clothing, toys and activities is a relatively recent phenomenon. When I was a child in the 1980s, everyone wore OshKosh dungarees and built with blocks.”

While clearly opinion,  I think the evidence will show that gender segregation has been around much longer and that perhaps dungarees were near the beginning of a larger trend toward gender neutrality.

Either way it is an interesting experiment that is likely to have a positive impact on society.
