So in that respect it would be neutral...But she wants to take it to the point where you can only use they/them etc etc. Is this just creating a nice opening/soft target for bullying?

I know a lot of people who practice this believe that from 0-4 they're a "theyby", and then at the age of 4 they let them decide...What kind of life decisions were you capable of making at that age? Wouldn't it just be easier to tell your kid the biological truth but tell them they can do w.e the **** they want to do? Rather than letting your boy think he's a girl only to be mind ****ed finding out he has something they don't? Or maybe he wouldn't give a shit
I'm not sure why this is a big deal. Tell your friend to man up and raise hell with her. They'll come to some sort compromise, like only being neutral in toys or something.

I donít see how you would pull this off even if you were insane enough to try. A boy isnít gonna have his friends calling him ďtheyĒ when his mom isnít around.

However what that mom is doing is mental illness.

pseudo abuse. If my kid wanted to wear a dress would I flip on him, no. If he said call me she would I do it, sure.

But that's the funny thing bout 'gender' you don't have to do shit and most times people turn out to be girly if they are girls and boyish if they are boys. haha. And the outliers can do what they want. There are prob a lot of femmy sided men that aren't trannies. I mean I have a feminine side, whatbeing 'an artist' and all.' Never wanted to put on a dress. I played w/ barbies w/ my lil cousin once as a kid.

Gender neutral is dumb but like trying to make your kid super ladylike or masculine is also dumb. To me gender neutrality, from a child standpoint, would just be avoiding that. No u can't do that you're a boy. I mean, at a certain point they'll figure it out, or they'll do what they need to do. I'd be like son I support you but if you chop off your shit you will regret it.

Having a dick + being able to dress as a girl, best of both worlds.

I'd put on a dress and go out in public, as a grown ass man, in the right circumstance. It's all jokes. I think people need to respect our anatomy as humans but stop trying to box people in who don't wanna be boxed in, whether it's racial or sexist shit. People should be able to do what they can, if they want, provided it's not specifically (to me purposefully or w/ blatant disrespect/regard) harming someone else.

Homosexuality sickens me but they should be treated as any other person but don't go teaching our children that it is normal because its not. Abortion is murder I do not support that. Transgenders are mentally ill people who need professional help, boys are boys and girls are girls, transsexuals need to use the bathroom of the sex they were born into, your fake vag doesn't make you a female etc etc.
This. I worked with one for almost four years and I have never met a more miserable human being no matter what good was happening in his slash and or hers life
