Meanwhile...Feminism

This is a neutral blog that will mainly be centered around articles and posts having to do with the psychology of women and gender, gender and sexuality in media, which includes raising awareness of women's rights in a leveled environment. Clearly, it won't be perfect, but I'll try my best.

Discussion and recommendation of articles are encouraged. People of different opinions are welcomed to comment or send in comments. I ask that everyone please be respectful and courtesy of others in any blog or forum, as not everyone might share the same opinion.

So a Swedish daycare center decides to create a “gender neutral” environment for the children in order to create a more equal ground among genders, but some say it may confuse the children about gender and they are suppose to behave. What do you think? 

Setting aside Yahoo! Poll results for a sec, the question does come to mind: can you raise a child to be “gender free” or are boys and girls actually “different”? There is a daycare in Sweden that is attempting to keep everything neutral by not using (fe)male pronouns. Rather, as the tidbit states, they refer to all children as “hen” and call them by their names.
