My Sex: I've Got A Secret

Parents raise offspring as a no-gender/pick-your-own-gender/do your own thing/I gotta be me/ kid.

Because sex, or "gender" is just a socially constructed role, right?

Wrong. "In the beginning God created man... male and female created he them". Kind of a basic, kindergarten building-block starting-point for true knowledge about the human species. Who ever thought we would need revelation to figure this out?!

Goin' out on a limb. I'm guessing the parents a) didn't vote Conservative, and b) are new age if they have religious leanings.

I do annual volunteer teaching in Africa. More and more as I tell them tales from the sophisticated, advanced West, they stare back at me in expressions ranging from bewildered amazement to amazed bewilderment. And we are teaching them?

I wish these kids happy lives. May God look down on them and bless them, and not "visit the sins of their parents" on them.

And the beat goes on.

If this practice by the parents is is some how not child abuse, this strange 'co-sleeping' practice should raise some eyebrows.

"Upstairs they co-sleep curled up on two mattresses pushed together on the floor of the master bedroom, under a heap of mismatched pillows and blankets"

But hey man err... hey X, social experiments inspired by songs from the 70's never turned out bad before ... did they?
