There’s a new wave of thinking going around. As Twitchy reported, a school took its Twitter account private after a first-grade teacher taught kids that sometimes the doctor is wrong when he makes a guess as to a baby’s sex. We’ve seen the same language in gender theory training materials for teachers: When a baby is born, the doctor makes a guess as to the baby’s sex and doesn’t always get it right.

To ensure the doctor didn’t get it wrong, one couple banned the doctor from announcing the baby’s gender in the delivery room.

Claudia Poposki reports:

Sommer Barros-Portway — who appeared on last night’s episode of SBS’s Insight to discuss the matter — came out as non-binary two years ago, meaning Sommer uses they/them pronouns.

Sommer, who is in their late 30s, met their wife Stephanie six years ago and the pair went through IVF to welcome baby Juno into the world.

The pair have said they want their child to be able to choose their own path in life without being confined to gender stereotypes.

“In the birth room we asked no one to announce (the sex) because I didn’t know and I didn’t want to find out when I was pregnant because I didn’t want to start imposing societal ideals on my baby,” Stephanie said during the program.

Sommer said initially they were going to use they/them pronouns for Juno so that society wouldn’t put pressures of gender norms on the child but they realized it wasn’t possible, as many were offended when they wouldn’t reveal the gender of their child.

So, they decided to use they or she when referring to the baby, who was assigned female at birth, and use the term Mom for Stephanie and PomPom for Sommer.

That’s pretty weak … they’ve already started using “she” to refer to their child who was assigned female at birth.

We’re just disappointed they already caved and started calling the baby “she.” That’s already setting expectations.
