Parents raise their son child to be "gender-neutral" so he they won't grow up to be aggressive. The bullies who will beat him zir up after he ze starts school will surely appreciate their target's lack of aggression.
Fissile: Getting bullied at a young age leads to one of two things: 1) Suicide. 2) Homicide. Thanks mom and dad.
Ivan the Tolerable: Unless you come from a family of complete neanderthal redneck dumbasseswhere the mom is a feminazi, raising a child as a male doesn't involve making him inherently aggressive anyway. Unless you live in Texas, in which case I will refer you back to the beginning of the first sentence.
Saborlas: This being the Daily Fail, the most extreme part of the story is likely made up.
The My Little Pony Killer: But don't you DARE accuse Fark of misogyny...
miss diminutive: I don't see how forcing both genders on a child is any different than forcing one he/she might not identify with. But, whatever.
MechaPyx: Here's a crazy notion....why not let the kid decide for himself instead of forcing these things on them. If he wants to play with dolls or dress in tutus let him. If he wants to play GI Joe and baseball instead let him.
jedzz: Okay, but I have a sneaking suspicion what he's extremely likely to do once he starts noticing what other boys are doing.
Noticeably F.A.T.: Saborlas: This being the Daily Fail, the most extreme part of the story is likely made up.That's better.
John Buck 41: FTA--"I hope that Max won't get teased when he's older."Yeah, good luck with THAT.//hope in one hand and shiat in the other. See which one fills up first.
OneTimed: The My Little Pony Killer: But don't you DARE accuse Fark of misogyny...Yawn
brantgoose: If you want your kid to not be a bully, make sure he or she is about a foot taller than the other kids by the age of 10-12.NB: This will not protect them from bullies and might make them a target. If they are strong and in good shape, they might not be bullied provided they are good-looking, smart, or good at sports (especially the latter).Gender training has nothing to do with aggression. Boys punch. Girls pinch. Girls will work their social and psychological evil on you, even a male bully will respect you if you can beat him in an unfair fight.The two stupid things that parents say about bullies:Stand up for yourself. Fight back.Don't stand up for yourself. Ignore them. They'll get bored and leave you alone.The second of these is marginally better psychology because it is usually the woman who says it.The first is marginally better psychology provided you are sure you can win in fights--as required. But if you could do that, you probably aren't bullied. You are either a bully, a bystander, or a peace maker.Make that two feet taller.
