By The Blaze. A Florida family is opting to raise their child, Sparrow, as “gender-neutral,” and calling the child a “theyby.”
According to WTSP-TV, Ari Dennis — Sparrow’s mom — believes that her child’s genitals don’t determine her child’s gender.
“We did not assign a sex at birth, which means when they were born, they had genitals, we know what they are, we just chose to acknowledge that those genitals don’t indicate anything about gender,” Dennis explained.
Dennis said that Sparrow, who is 11 months old, will be able to decide his or her gender when he or she is older, and even noted that her child’s birth certificate says “unknown” under “sex.”
Dennis told WTSP that she was inspired to raise her child as a gender-neutral baby after their older child “discovered gender around the age of four.” (Read more from “Florida Family Is Raising a Gender-Neutral ‘Theyby'” HERE)

Sparrow’s family isn’t alone. A closed Facebook group called “Parenting Theybies” has roughly 350 members. (Read more from “Raising Sparrow: Not a Boy or a Girl. This Florida Family Is Raising a Gender-Neutral ‘Theyby'” HERE)
