Ridiculous or ultra-enlightened? A Toronto couple's decision to keep the gender of their 4-month-old baby a secret has touched off a sometimes nasty debate over how far parents should go in protecting young ones from society's boy-girl biases.
"What struck me was that the father had made a statement that he found it obnoxious that so many parents make so many choices for their children, but it's plain to see that he himself is making a very extreme choice for his child," Mr. Tan said.
"When I read the article it kind of angered me, that I would read something like this about parents doing this kind of social experiment on their own kids," said Stephan Tan, 36, a music school owner and father of four young children in Brampton, Ontario.
