A couple are bringing up a gender-neutral child by keeping its sex a secret even from close family.
Hobbit Humphrey, 38, and Jake England-Johns, 35, call their 17-month-old by the pronoun “they” and dress them in both girls’ and boys’ clothing.
Calling a girl Hobbit was always going to cause trouble now, wasn’t it?
Still, if lots of people do this we’re going to get, soon enough, a useful answer to that socialisation of gender thing, aren’t we?
Because there are going to be some very annoyed people when the pubertal hormones kick in and nature reasserts.
