Four-year-old, Utah-born, toddler Zoomer is a theyby.
Zoomer has a crop of delightfully overgrown, blonde hair, really enjoys ice cream and likes playing with toy trucks and getting a manicure in equal measure; all aspects which shouldn’t be determined by the child’s sex.
The idea behind the concept is that gender is socially constructed, whereas the sex of a person is biologically determined.
Zoomer’s mum, Kyl Myer, argues that this prevents people asserting gendered beliefs onto their child. On her blog Raising Zoomer, she says this allows a “stereotype-free early childhood.”
“The sex does not tell us anything about the child’s personality, temperament, favourite colour, dietary preferences, sense of humour, attitudes toward climate change, or any of their other unique traits,” she writes.
