Kate Hudson's Fans Are Confused As She Is Raising Daughter "Genderless" But Referring To The Child As "She"

Date October 2, 2019

There are a bunch of different parenting styles out there and one method that's being adopted by some is the idea of raising a gender-neutral child.

In cases like this, all traditional gender roles and ideas, like pink for girls blue for boys, are thrown out the window. The children will be raised without these gender-based limitations.

Kate Hudson's declaration

Some parents have gone as far as saying they will raise genderless children. This refers to the idea that they don't raise the kids as boys or girls. They simply raise them as kids and interact with them based on their individual needs.

Actress Kate Hudson is on board with this idea as she said in an interview with AOL that she planned to take a genderless parenting approach.

She said she would like to raise her children as individuals and wouldn't want them to conform to fixed gender boundaries.

The mother of three explained that her first child displayed feminine behavior :

It doesn’t really change my approach, but there’s definitely a difference. I think you just raise your kids individually regardless – like a genderless approach.

She, however, expressed her intention to allow the child to figure out her own identity as she grows.

We still don’t know what she’s going to identify as. I will say that, right now, she is incredibly feminine in her energy, her sounds and her way. It’s very different from the boys.

Internet mocks Kate

Some people didn't necessarily disagree with the actress's methods, but they had issues with the fact that Kate referred to her child as "she" and "her" despite her insistence of raising her without gender.

@-setro- commented:

Can't call them a daughter either.

@DapperBubble2 said Kate should have gone with something different.

Would have made more sense if it said that she was raising her child without gender roles.

@makary12 had some questions.

How do you raise somebody as a daughter or a son don't you kind of just raise them?

@TheYeeMeister64 commented:

Couldn't use "child" and "they" I guess..

@An_Anonymous_Reddit said:

I support this type of parenting but then why is she referring to her kid as a she/her already?

@jellojuicebox was concerned that this type of parenting confuses a child.

Raising your kid genderless is a horrible idea they’ll just be confused :( but don’t raise them like “pink is only for girls not for boys” type stuff.

@CapriDraws disapproved too.

No, the mom is just being ignorant. "they're genderless but I'll use she/her guys look how progressive I am.

Kate's decision sure invited a lot of criticisms. Do you think she's wrong in her approach?
