They weren't trying to let the child decide it's ****, but try and raise it "gender-less", ie, if people don't know whether it's a boy or girl, it won't be pushed into male or female roles/clothes/activities, etc.

But I do agree that it looks set up to fail - society isn't gender-neutral, and all the attention just makes people focus on the child's gender more, rather than simply ignoring it.

Thank you.

Basically, they're not raising it ****-neutral - the baby is going to have XY chromosomes and testes or XX chromosomes and ovaries regardless, but masculinity and femininity are socially constructed - whether the child wears pants or dresses, acts rough or gently, plays with dolls or toy trucks - it's generally in response to it's surroundings. People tend to treat baby girls more gently than baby boys, buy feminine toys and clothes for baby girls, buy masculine ones for baby boys, etc.
