In an attempt to steer clear of all gender stereotypes, a couple is keeping the sex of their child a secret. WTH?!
Some couples don't want to know the sex of their child until after the kid is born. In a bizarre twist, a couple in Sweden knows the gender, but they're not telling anybody -- even though their child, whom they refer to as "Pop," recently turned 2.
"We want Pop to grow up more freely and avoid being forced into a specific gender mold from the outset," Pop's mother told a Swedish newspaper. "It's cruel to bring a child into the world with a blue or pink stamp on their forehead."
Some might argue that it's cruel to put your kid though your own personal social experiment. But for now, Pop's days are similar to those of most toddlers. Pop wears pants and dresses and is more likely to wear neutral colors than the traditional blue or pink.
Of course, like all children, Pop will eventually get curious and start asking questions. His/her first query might be, "Mom, Dad ... you two are a little nuts, right?"
