Sasha dresses in clothes he likes -- be it a hand-me-downs from his sister or his brother. The big no-no's are hyper-masculine outfits like skull-print shirts and cargo pants. In one photo, sent to friends and family, Sasha's dressed in a shiny pink girl's swimsuit. "Children like sparkly things," says Beck. "And if someone thought Sasha was a girl because he was wearing a pink swimming costume, then what effect would that have? "

Why do you think so? Sasha is a perfectly suitable name for either male or female. See here. I have only ever known males named Sasha. Maybe it depends on where you're from, eh?
Why should he be more toward the feminine? Is that a problem? Maybe he won't commit date rape or beat up guys at the pub or join the military or kill his wife and kids when he grows up. Maybe he'll be a landscape artist or a astrophysicist or an electrical engineer. Of course he could just be a regular guy with a regular life. But maybe since he was allowed to find his own way through who he is, maybe he'll have a leg up on the rest of us who maybe felt a little confused about who we are ultimately because we were put into roles that may not just entirely suit us. That's what the adolescent rebellion is about and that's what middle crisis is about. This kid might not have those at all.
Time will tell.

That is going to be one messed up kid. I could understand it if he was a hermaphrodite though.

I have to agree that what they are saying is 'gender-neutral' isn't really neutral at all. My opinion would be that gender neutrality would mean neutral colors, uni-sex type style of clothing and non gender specific activities.
I don't see what is wrong with celebrating the differences between men and women.
