Conditioning is a big part of society and you can condition anybody into doing and thinking anything. If you look at ancient Greek city states such
as the Spartans and other city states who practiced different conditioning that were more drastic then todays.
Then you would see that yes! you can condition a male into being female like, and females into being male like. Even to the point that the males
would prefer other males over natural females such as in a lot of the Spartans case, as in they had male lovers and usually a female which they had
to spend some time with and impregnate once in a while. It was pretty much in the laws of the land, as to keep the spartan population up. But all
that was more along the lines of life long conditioning or at least into teenage years and such that some of the ancient Greek city states
OK so I read about 70% of the op's link, till I couldn't take it no more it was just so boring and it has no points whatsoever other then other
people don't know if it's a boy or girl and they ain't telling, but everybody in the family knows mom, dad, siblings, know but the kid and strangers
don't. I mean what the hell is the point of doing that?
I really don't get what there trying to do or prove, I mean its a kid and it probably has either a penis or a vagina, so whats with all the mystery
or keeping it secret the kid will not even have any idea until it grow up a little anyways what everybody is talking about anyways. And what kind of
name is Storm, it sounds like he or she will grow up and join the X-Men. Not dissing the name I actually think its a cool name, but the whole story
in the op along with the name of the kid says more about the parents then it does about the kid.
I think you should raise your kid to be whatever gender it is, after all its just a kid and he or she wont even know or be interested in one or the
other till they are at least teenagers. So put some toys on the floor and let them play with whatever they chose, because lets face it genders are
important and there for many reasons. But really all that this would do is probably just confuse the kid more and not give him or her a clear grasp
when he or her reaches teenage years on what the genders are all about. It's like deliberately making him or her ignorant on a important subject
that will matter latter on to him or her.
What are they trying to do? And for how long are they going to keep the kid in limbo about gender related issues? Such as what gender he or she is
and what the genders are for? If its just while he or she is a kid and all that, then I really don't see the point, and it probably wont do much
in terms of his or her's persona or life long issues with one or the other sexes, as the kid will not even grasp much of it till a little older.
But if they go over the kid age such as they keep him or her in the dark into the ages of 9 and above then it would definitely effect him or her.
And just bring confusion especially if the parents don't bother teaching what boys are and what girls are out there in the bigger picture as well as
in the smaller picture. But I think he or she will figure it all out, when he or she looks between there legs and ask's, "what the hell is that
weird looking thing?"
Besides if you all want gender neutral or genderless people I think eventually with each generation it will slowly come to that over time, after all
conditioning is pretty powerful but what is conditioned can be unconditioned. But nature will always trump things when it comes down to it no matter
the conditioning or what is in the way or what people think should or should not be. And eventually it will come down to something like that and
genderless societies, and yes nature can go genderless it does not have to be male or female, it can be neither.
