This is an interesting article from NPR about the evergrowing trend in America of queering gender. NPR is usually very unsensational, however, this article does seem to mix things that have always existed, such as transgenderism, with social trends. One is something that can exist on its own without a social trend. The other, such as hiding the gender of a child, is just a reaction to a new acceptance alternate views on gender. Transgender people are not some rebellious trend, they are people. The article is actually pretty interesting, but I wanted to state my few problems with it. Check it out.
