Heres' one way to completely confuse children.

Are these the most PC parents in the world? The couple raising a 'genderless baby'... to protect his (or her) right to choice

Meet Storm. With those big blue eyes, fair hair and chubby cheeks, the four-month-old is certainly adorable.
But whether this baby is a bruising boy or a blushing girl is, the parents say, a secret. In fact, they’re leaving the decision up to him – or her.

Friends cleverly accused the couple of taking away the newborn's right to choice by imposing their own ideology on the tiny baby.
