Science goes out the window to promote gender ambiguity

A study from A&M University, Texas shows what every sane parent already knows: boys are different from girls:

Boys are genetically programmed to prefer Bob the Builder to Barbie dolls, say scientists.

Tests involving children as young as three months suggest biological differences and not social pressures dictate which toys children like to play with.

The U.S. study looked at babies aged three to eight months – before they can identify even the gender of other people.

Undaunted by mere science, gender confusion marches onward in Sweden where parents of a 2 year old declare by fiat that gender is a social construction, even though science, common sense and bodily apparatus says it isn’t. The truly repulsive part of this is that the “parents” are sacrificing their own child to further their miserably twisted delusions:

A couple of Swedish parents have stirred up debate in the country by refusing to reveal whether their two-and-a-half-year-old child is a boy or a girl.

Pop’s parents, both 24, made a decision when their baby was born to keep Pop’s sex a secret. Aside from a select few – those who have changed the child’s diaper – nobody knows Pop’s gender; if anyone enquires, Pop’s parents simply say they don’t disclose this information.

In an interview with newspaper Svenska Dagbladet in March, the parents were quoted saying their decision was rooted in the feminist philosophy that gender is a social construction.

“We want Pop to grow up more freely and avoid being forced into a specific gender mould from the outset,” Pop’s mother said. “It’s cruel to bring a child into the world with a blue or pink stamp on their forehead.”

  1. “It’s cruel to bring a child into the world with a blue or pink stamp on their forehead.” Others would maintain it’s feminist “philosophy” that’s cruel.

  2. It’s good to see that universities are “on the ball” and have the finances to do the difficult reseach on this subject!!! May be now they have proved this important point, they will get financed to follow up with the next step, why ,wherefore and how girls are different from boys! That’s important too. May be even more important!I could go on but wont !!!

  3. Mom and dad didn’t think very clearly, did they? They may not have brought pop up to be “forced into a specific gender mould” but as soon as pop gets into into pre-school they’ll be asking, “Are you a boy or a girl?” In the real world outside of mom and dad’s little bubble this will continue to be a question and should it not be answered little pop will be marginalized and mercilessly taunted by other children. Kids can be nasty enough without adding this on top on it. Shame on the parents.
