Gender Bias: Can You Have Your Gender Reveal Cake & Eat It, Too? by Erica Hornthal
In a world where we are trying to reduce gender bias and place importance on individuality rather than fitting into a box, I find that sometimes we are doing just the opposite. When I was a mom-to-be I always found it interesting when people asked, "What are you having?" I would usually reply, "A baby." All jokes aside, I knew people were asking so they could identify what colors to adorn the child in – blue for boy and pink for girl.
This post is not about right or wrong. It is simply about being aware of the choices you make and how they influence your thoughts, beliefs and judgments in the future. Notice how much importance you place on your child's sex vs. gender and how that influences the things they wear or even the hobbies they take part in.
What are ways that you have broken the gender bias? How do you support your child's cross-gender interests?
