Being Raised Without Gender

I really like this video that we watched in my Anthropology 203 class about gender. In Sweden, everyone in the community is very gender neutral and even has a term for a 3rd gender. The parents in this video allow their children to decide what they want to be called each day (he/she, him/her) and allow them to decide what clothes to wear and what toys to play with. I think that this is important because it allows the kids to express themselves in a way that they find fitting for themselves. We talked about gender in class and how we are constantly associating each other based on gender.
