You guys who are interested in gender issues will be down for this one. I would have posted this to the forum but it no longer appears on the side bar, so... I figured I would do it here.

In short, a Canadian couple has decided to raise their child without revealing the sex to anyone, mainly to see how this would influence the kid's upbringing. Here are some articles :

I just clicked on the photo gallery..

I think that the parents may just be doing this for attention, and this may leave the child confused as to what their childhood was like, and all that, but they can't keep a secret forever.

Oh, but this...I forget...sshhhhiiizzzzzz
