THE mother and father of a two-year-old have decided not to tell people the gender of their toddler.

Kyl and Brent Myer are part of the Gender Creative Parenting movement and have decided to raise their child Zoomer in a gender neutral environment, The Sun reports.

The Utah-based family have made a conscious decision not to tell people if the sweet child is a girl or a boy.

Little toddler Zoomer is therefore a “theyby”.

Other than the immediate family, the modern parents said they: “Don’t disclose their sex to people who don’t need to know.”

Kyl and Brent have also opted to use gender neutral pronouns when referring to their little one, like they/them/their.

They made the choice in an attempt to unburden their baby from being “pigeonholed” as a specific gender.

In her blog Raising Zoomer, Kyl said: “The sex does not tell us anything about the child’s personality, temperament, favourite colour, dietary preferences, sense of humour, attitudes toward climate change, or any of their other unique traits.

“Just like the fact they have two arms doesn’t tell us anything else about them, except they have two arms.”

She does however acknowledge that Zoomer, or Z for short, will eventually identify as one of the genders and stressed that they aren’t banning the child from expressing any gender-specific preferences.

She said: “Zoomer will most likely choose a gender by the time they are three or four.

“We simply don’t believe that is our decision to make on their behalf. By not revealing their sex, and by treating them in a gender creative way, Z will have the freedom to explore and create their own identity, outside of the restrictions and expectations of traditional gender norms.”
