Remember the days when parents would anxiously wait for the birth of their baby, so they would then know if they added a boy or a girl to their family. The parents would have a boy’s name picked and a girl’s name picked. They were not sure before the birth if they should have pink or blue accessories when putting together the nursery for the new addition.
Then along came ultrasound. Not only could we see the child developing, the parents, if they wanted to end the suspense and concentrate on the name for only one sex and begin to begin to prepare the nursery in the proper color scheme, could learn the sex of their child well before the baby was born. This was considered, and it was, a huge breakthrough. It also proved to any doubter that life really does begin at conception.
Now we are learning that we have been wrong from the beginning of time. We actually do not know the sex of the baby at time of birth nor does the ultrasound give us the answer as to whether or not we have a boy or a girl. We are now learning that anatomy is meaningless. We must wait to learn if we have a boy or a girl until the child tells us at some later time if they are male or female. How foolish we have been to believe that anatomy has anything to do with gender.
Is Zyler a boy or a girl? How about Kadyn? That’s a question their parents, Nate and Julia Sharpe, say only the twins can decide. The couple represent a group of parents raising “theybies” — children being brought up without gender designation from birth.
“A theyby is, I think, different things to different people,” Nate Sharpe said. “For us, it means raising our kids with gender-neutral pronouns — so, ‘they,’ ‘them,’ ‘their,’ rather than assigning ‘he,’ ‘she,’ ‘him,’ ‘her’ from birth based on their anatomy.”
Apparently, the idea is that each child will chose their gender. We foolish traditionalists just do not understand that a three or four-year-old child is capable of determining that nature was wrong at time of conception. Nature said the child was a boy, but by the time the child is three or four, that child is capable of determining nature was wrong.
The world is blessed that we have such enlightened parents. Typically, these parents also understand that their children are capable of developing in all other areas of life without guidance and direction as well. Apparently, the role of a parent guiding and directing a child is outdated as well.
May God have mercy on us.
