The Beginnings of Gender Creative Children

The book, Transgender to Transhuman, explains that each of us has a gender identity as unique as our personality.  There are billions of people in the world and billions of unique gender identities.   Thanks to pioneering parents in Canada, and a trailblazing kindergarden in Sweden, the transgender future is starting to take root.

The Egalia Preschool in Sweden avoids shackling children into gender stereotypes.  "No Him or Her at Preschool."Male and female pronouns are replaced with a gender-free neologism when the gender of a person is undeclared.  The children are free to select gender identities without regard to anatomy and without the strictures of a male-or-female duality.

The Canadian parents have allowed their new child, named Storm, to choose one or more genders rather than be labeled as male or female.  Canadian Parents Raise Genderless Baby.

The media is incorrect to label the Canadians' efforts as raising a "genderless" baby.  Instead, they are raising a gender-free baby.  The opposite of male-or-female is not no gender, but it is creative gender.  We all have way too much gender to be forced into male or female pigeonholes.  It is a multi-gender, multi-sexual society awaiting us in the future.  One that is fun and full of creative choices.  

As we leave gender duality, and gender conformity, we begin accepting a spectrum of gender, not an absence of gender.  Only the infinite shades, hues and intensities of an ultimate color wheel could label the gender choices before us.

With the rapid advances in knowledge, several techniques were used to create the vagina; however, Dr. Juta”s technique is one of a kind, “The Scarless Sexchange” wherein there will be no visible scar on the labia majora after the operation. Certainly, he is the only doctor performing a high quality SRS “Scarless Sex change” in Thailand today. With Dr. Juta, you can achieve a successful outcome both in appearance and function, and there are far lesser incidents of complications. The goal of Doctor Juta is to create female sexual organs that look as natural as possible and that allow as much sexual arousal as possible.

"The opposite of male-or-female is not no gender, but it is creative gender." "As we leave gender duality, and gender conformity, we begin accepting a spectrum of gender, not an absence of gender."

I find the message of the article to be discriminatory in favor of those who identify with a gender. If the goal is to honor diversity, why not accept, and respect, those who choose to self-identify as "no gender" and "an absence of gender"? A person's identity doesn't need to be based on sex.
