When a Toronto couple decided to conceal the sex of their child, Storm Stocker [1], they ignited a fiery public debate over gender politics and parenting techniques. Kathy Witterick and David Stocker caught the media’s eye when they refused to let anyone other than their two older sons and midwives know Storm’s gender, and now the family’s decision has been catapulted into the public realm [1]. What do you think – should a baby’s gender be assigned as soon as it leaves the womb, or should parents avoid stereotypes and grant their children gender freedom?
