Unisex Babies and Toddlers

As the following quick sampling will attest:

Dressing your baby and toddler in unisex clothing is now a popular fad with parents and clothing manufacturers. (which is the chicken and which is the egg on that one).

I am sure that trend pleases Obama and the "gender-confused" or "gender confusing crowd". This is one more advantage to us naturists. Our children who accompany us to naturist/nudist venues will have a really great advantage when it comes to sorting out their gender based on their parents example.

I had not heard of this fad previously, but I assume that to the extent that it was small previously, that with all the gender nonsense going on it was only logical that the media whould hype this fad so as to increase their readership or viewership, and circulation and revenue. I just hope that the administration does not try to shut down naturist venues because they teach children that there is a real difference.

Since I first heard of it I have wondered - how LONG can you keep children - who are not totally unobservant - from noticing that partners Peter and Paul are different, and that there are parallel differences between children Mooncalf and Moonstruck [picking gender neutral names, of course].

Due to their natural curiosity I believe children will figure it out pretty quickly.

-----------------
I have no doubt that children will figure out that there is a difference, And of course if there is family nudity, then I expect that the children will also figure out which parent is their closest role model.

However if the family is textile and they encounter no nudity of the parents, then any gender role modelling may be muted or delayed or confused.

I would expect that parents who are going to explicit effort to be gender neutral in clothing may also be going for gender neutrality in name selection (e.g. Sharan vs Sharon, Carroll vs Carol).

legal jurisdictions have restrictions on what names may be given to a baby, (I think that the state of indiana is one such state and Denmark and Germany are I believe the north European nations that I have heard has such a restriction, more info and leads at:https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Naming_in_the_United_States)

I am sure some places would block Praisegod Basrebones. Perhaps even "A Boy Named Sue"

Perhaps we're making more of this than anyone intended? A glance at one of the articles seems to indicate that the "gender-neutral clothing" movement is not concerned about biological sex, but rather with rigid gender-role expectations such as "Boys drive trucks, girls play with dolls..." If this is so, I happily support it. And after all, what is more gender-neutral than skin? :)

Where it is that of course - I had as much of a doll as my sisters n my early years, the sex stereotyping is as bad as its opposite [I carried my books the wrong way in school, and heard about it].

Buit so many people are unwilling to leave anyhthing at lassez faire....

Would that it were so and only that, However in the present environment where we hear that in schools that there is an effort to remove the terms "boys" and "girls", I think that it would be safer to presume that it is far more than that and be concerned that it is in fact part of a plan to erase gender altogether. And before launching into details about, "would that be better or worse", I am reminded of
In Genesis 1 and 2 Moses wrote:Gen 1: 27 So God created man in his own image, in the image of God created he him; male and female created he them.
Gen 2:
18 ¶And the LORD God said, It is not good that the man should be alone; I will make him an help meet for him.
............
24 Therefore shall a man leave his father and his mother, and shall cleave unto his wife: and they shall be one flesh.

Our created form is in two types each meant for each other each with inherent proclivities more optimally suited to specific roles so that the roles could be fulfilled more easily and perfectly.
God could have made us all hermaphrodites but he did not. The two types are different and specialized and the two types differ in a whole lot more than just their genitals. So while there are differences and when necessary each gender can fill in for the other the primary mode of operation was to be based on two complimentary specialists each with their own particular expertise. It is of course not a particularly rigid plan because God intended for us to have flexibility but the primary pattern of two genders is clearly in seen in the inherent differences of form and proclivities primary across all cultures. So then if God's plan is two genders it is not likely to work as well if we try to extinguish the differences.

I have a tractor and a car and a trailer"
-- The car and tractor can both pull the trailer.
-- But to take a heavy load out of a plowed field I use the tractor.
-- To haul a load 100 miles on the highway at 60 mph, I use the car.
I would be foolish to ignore the differences. I could haul a load 100 miles with the tractor in 4 or 5 hours, I could get a heavy load out of a plowed field with the car if I could do it in several trips or make multiple empty loads to first pack the soil along the route. I could greatly extend this analogy in multiple facets of vehicle use, but I think most of you could do so as well. While there is great individual variation, there are overall strong general trends.

In the present gender confused environment I think the unisex push is one that serves Satan's purposes far better than it does God's purposes.

[/quote] The material might be regarded as being gender neutral but some of the various bits that it is used to make an outer layer of are radically different. On top of that male and female skin tends to be quite different in various places. Female skin is for instance often softer smoother and less hairy.
