Children With No Gender At All
I’m curious about this one. I don’t think it’s ever been done before either, at least not until recently.
Nate and Julia Sharpe are raising their three-year-old twins with no gender at all. Coined “theybies,” the couple do not reveal the biological sex of their children to anyone, including the children themselves. The couple are the center of a new report from NBC News, exploring the world of gender-free parenting that many millennial are beginning to use.
Here’s the rest. There are more parents doing this, too. There’s a Facebook group for people with theybies with over 200 members.
While I think this is a little extreme, I think it’s wonderful that we’re slowly moving toward breaking down all gender stereotypes.
“Rub and Tug” May Be Scrapped After Scarlett Johansson Dropped Out
I find it hard to believe that there isn’t a transgender man out there who could play a transgender male character in a movie. In fact, I don’t believe it.
Rub & Tug, a film about a trans man named Dante ‘Tex’ Gill, may be scrapped after Scarlett Johansson stepped down from the lead role.
Here’s more. They go into a lot more back story, and they explain why Johansson backed out of the role. Some of the comments are disturbing, though. It’s amazing to see so many who simply do not understand why Johansson backed out.
Cuba and Gay Marriage
