I don't see it as open minded at all. The mother makes some pretty big judgments herself. Like the comment about putting her boy in the pink fairy outfit hoping that mums of girls might think twice now before putting their girls in the ridiculous outfits. If she thinks its so ridiculous then why is her boy in one? She is deliberately trying to provoke a reaction, using her son. Its not about letting him choose what he wishes to wear or play with.
And the comment about mothers finding childbirth hard because they aren't physical enough or weren't as children. That's pretty narrowminded. I've always been a tomboy, climbing trees, wearing jeans and shirts, playing physically. I am very fit. But I had a posterior baby with a 37 hr labour. It was tough, and shock, horror I had an epidural eventually.
I like the ideology of not pushing kids to conform to stereotypes, but she goes way beyond that.

LOL after 2 boys I'll be damned if I'm bringing my first and only daughter up gender neutral. I want sequins and frills and PINK dammit .
Anyway, now hopefully this child can be normal...although with parents like that I'm not sure if thats a possibility.

I think DESPITE whether we bring our kids up gender neutral or not that what's important is the message that we send our kids as parents. We are their biggest influence.
