    I saw that story. It’ll be interesting to see how Pop turns out.

    Yeah, an update in a few years would be thoughtful. As long as Pop’s parents don’t discourage Pop’s choice (if any) of gender identity, I don’t think what they’re doing is all that radical. They’re just letting a child be a child. Hopefully the village will let Pop be a child as well.

    Thanks for the interesting story. I think the parents are trying to do something good and I aplaude them for giving so much thought to sex and gender. I am glad the parents were honest with Pop about boys’ and girls’ body parts. I hope the relationship between the child and parents remains as open as it seems to be. I worry about how the child would be treated at school. I hope Pop is and always will be a happy healthy human being.

    You’re welcome. I also have reservations about how Pop will be treated in school. Children can be vicious to other children for any reason or no reason. If Pop isn’t home-schooled, I hope Pop’s future elementary school has strong anti-bullying education and rules.

    other parents can be mean too. in fact sometimes it is more the parent’s doing than the child’s.
