This isn't Ken and Barbie world, this is freaking Earth.
Wouldn't if be amazing if we started with removing the barriers of race, color and religion?
How much further ahead as a planet would we be, if great minds were allowed to work for the benefit of Earth and Earthlings, without the interference of governments and country alliances.
All children should be safe, loved and protected. Children should be the responsibility and a priority for all of us. They are the future, not just of mankind, but for all Earthlings. Such a fragile and valuable resource should not be treated as expendable.

What makes us male or female? the reproductive organs! It doesn't matter what sex you identify with-you were born as a male as a female-there is no 'other' on the birth certificate.
Physiologically we are either born with a penis or a vagina-boys have willies, girls have nillies and in a purely physiological sense the argument ends here. But what drives a person to want a nilly isntead of a willy? that is the issue.

As i recall there was in 2011 and 2014 articles that spoken of the gender issue. Here are some articles that spoken about.
The category of gender was canceled at one of Swedish kindergartens. The words "boy" and "girl" are no longer used there, while pronouns "he" and "she" were replaced with "it". Kindergarten teachers believe that they are successfully breaking the gender stereotypes so that the people of two sexes would not feel predominant towards each other.
Boys and Girls abolished in Sweden
Some have called it "gender madness", but the Egalia pre-school in Stockholm says its goal is to free children from social expectations based on their sex.
Swedens gender neutral pre-school
Or another article for the same in Egalia pre-school
At the taxpayer-funded “Egalia” preschool in Stockholm, which opened last year for children ages 1-6, boys and girls play together with a toy kitchen, which is located next to the Lego bricks, the Associated Press reports.
They read books featuring gay and lesbian couples, single parents and adopted children, instead of fairy tales such as “Cinderella” or “Snow White,” which are rife with gender stereotypes.
School staff try to avoid masculine and feminine references in their speech, for example by not using the Swedish pronouns “han” or “hon” for him or her, and instead using the genderless word “hen,” which doesn’t formally exist in the Swedish language.
"Society expects girls to be girlie, nice and pretty and boys to be manly, rough and outgoing," teacher Jenny Johnsson told the AP. "Egalia gives them a fantastic opportunity to be whoever they want to be."
No "Boys and "Girls" at gender neutral pre-school in Sweden
Teachers in a Nebraska school district have been told to not refer to children as boys and girls but instead as things like "purple penguins." I don't even know what that means.
Teachers told to call kids "Purple Penguin"
This gender madness needs to stop seriously.

So if your children did have a friend that was a grey genderless blob, would you not allow them to play together?

So, naturally I am quite furious when entities which claim to represent the gay rights community spew crap about how they have the right to dictate the views/language of others. Not only does this hurt their cause, angering people like myself, but it is blatant demonization of the NOT gay community. They are doing what they hate others doing!!!
I suppose one thing that history shows us is that human stupidity is seemingly endless.
1 in 100 humans are intersex.
