Canadian Baby Becomes First Recorded Gender-Less Newborn

Instead of being indicated “male” or “female”, this newborn’s health card has been marked “U” which stands for “undetermined” or “unassigned.”

Children should be given their chance to develop their own gender identity without presumptions – that’s what Kori Doty, parent of baby Searyl Atly, believes. An eight-month-old newborn in Canada was considered the first infant born who was not given an official gender designation.

Searyl Atly, who was born in November was issued a health card marked with a “U” in the space designated for the gender. It stands for “undetermined” or “unassigned.”

Doty, a non-binary transgender person told CBC the goal is to let the child to develop a gender identity on their own:

“I’m raising Searyl in such a way that until they have the sense of self and command of vocabulary to tell me who they are, I’m recognizing them as a baby and trying to give them all the love and support to be the most whole person that they can be outside of the restrictions that come with the boy box and the girl box.”

Searyl was born out of medical system so there was no genital inspection. The Vital Statistics Agency previously refused to issue the child’s birth certificate without a gender designation so Doty had to settle with them against the court to get gender-neutral documentation for Searyl.

“When I was born, doctors looked at my genitals and made assumptions about who I would be, and those assignments followed me and followed my identification throughout my life.”

“Those assumptions were incorrect, and I ended up having to do a lot of adjustments since then.”

Doty added that those with assigned gender at birth finds it hard to legally change their gender later on.Doty’s lawyer, barbara findlay (who prefers to spell her name in small caps) said the requirement for a gender marker violates Searyl’s Charter rights.

She said,

“The assignment of sex in this culture is done when a medical person lifts up the legs and looks at the baby’s genitals. But we know that the baby’s own gender identity will not develop for some years until after they’re born.”

Breastfeeding Mom Fires Back at Stranger Who Told Her To ‘Put Her F**king Tits Away’

Kudos to this awesome mother!

We all know that breastfeeding is great for babies. Medical experts have repeatedly emphasized its value, particularly the numerous health benefits for both the mother and then baby. So yes, for the most part, people are well-educated about the importance of breastfeeding.

The sad reality, however, is that there is still a stigma about mothers who chose to breastfeed their babies. We've seen several social experiments in the past that totally establish this. Many still consider it awkward and inappropriate to see mothers nursing their young ones in public. Which really shouldn't be the case in the first place.

Besides, breastfeeding is the most natural way of feeding a baby and mothers who do it actually deserve to be commended. Just ask any mom and they will readily tell you how physically challenging this seemingly-simple task can be. The last thing they would need is to be ridiculed and disrespected.
