It’s Pop!

Today, via the Motherlode blog on the New York Times website (love the name), news that there is a two and a half year old child in Sweden named Pop, whose gender the 24-year-old parents of Pop are keeping a secret. From everyone. Except the handful of people who have changed Pop’s diaper. Sometimes Pop wears pants, and sometimes a dress, and Pop’s parents plan to keep this up for as long as possible, in order that Pop might “avoid being forced into a specific gender mould.”

Holy cow.
