The “Hambis” trend: Parents refuse to assign sex to babies at birth in a 60 Minutes interview


A new generation of parents is refusing to assign a gender to their children at birth, with the growing trend being described as a “scary experience”.

Instead, parents allow their children to decide whether or not they are a boy or a girl regardless of their physical anatomy.

They avoid using sexual pronouns when their child is born and refer to them as “they” or “they” with non-sexual children known as “they”.

Some parents opened up about the new direction while experts warned of the consequences in an upcoming 60 Minutes segment set to air Sunday.

The trend comes after it was revealed that Australian taxpayers were calling for a new education program that would teach paediatricians their gender at birth.

One mother explained that she wanted to give her child the freedom to choose who they are.

She said “We are not assigned a sex at birth… We are not trying to eliminate gender, we are just helping children find their own way into it”.

Another parent added, “I’m letting this little guy be who he wants to be.”

The parent revealed that they had received some backlash from the public with strangers on the street confronting them about it.

Sky News presenter Erin Mullan described the direction as “a little scary”.

“You don’t want to tell parents how to raise children,” she said.

But I mean, even to the extent that it was an experiment, which was just a direct quote there – I don’t think children should be used that way. This stuff goes too far

If your child is, depending on the stage and time at which he has reached a position where he is mature enough and believes that he is not the gender he was assigned at birth, then deal with him. Do what needs to be done to make sure the baby is happy and satisfied.

“I just think it’s unnecessary and a bit scary actually experimenting because when your kid leaves your house and enters the real world, he’s going to be disoriented.”

Development experts have warned that parenting can backfire once children are exposed to the wider community.

Children will struggle to cope, Liz Elliott, a professor of neurology at the Medical College of Chicago, told NBC News.

“Once your child meets the outside world, which could be daycare, preschool, or grandparents—it’s pretty much impossible to maintain a gender-free state,” she said.

“And depending on how traditional your society is, you may be setting your child up for bullying or exclusion.”

The growing trend comes after it was revealed in December that an Australian taxpayer-funded campaign to tell paediatricians to “assign” sex at birth was revealed.

The Australian Human Rights Commission has produced Let’s Talk About Bodies, Identity and Sexuality, which is aimed at school children aged 8-12.

AHRC says the video and associated workbook teach kids about “sex, gender identity, and diversity.”

However, it was criticized by opponents, who called it a “queer utopia” and “awakened gender ideology”.

Researcher Kate Kowalski told The Daily Telegraph: “It is curious that AHRC introduces concepts about sexual orientation to children in years three to six.”

What should an eight-year-old know about sex?

“There are inappropriate sexual imagery used throughout the video, particularly in the part dealing with Mardi Gras.”

The video begins with footage from Sydney’s annual Mardi Gras parade, showing revelers dressed in flamboyant costumes dancing in the streets.

In the video, children are told that the walk is a celebration of “the diversity of people’s bodies, gender identities and sexual orientations”.

Young is told about intersex and transgender people, and defines gender identity as “what you feel on the inside.”

She also says that some people have a different gender identity than “the sex that was determined by the doctor when they were born”.

Critics of the video say that the sex of the fetus is observed in the womb during pregnancy and is not decided by doctors after birth.

The video also explains that some people are “erotomaniacs” and can be sexually or romantically attracted to others regardless of their sexual identity or gender.
