In a story all too typical for our post modern world, we have parents refusing to tell anyone what the gender of their child happens to be. It's all good fun, and The Lookout, as usual, yucks it up with them as we are informed how wrong it is to have gender distinction at all. Just like seeing a resurgence in leisure suits, this is a throwback to the 70s, when the whole experiment was tried on my age - give dolls to the boys and fully armed combat assault rifles to the girls. All to disastrous results. Then none other than John Stossel broke down barriers with a special report in the early 90s that men and women were, in fact, different.
Some radical feminists and men-girl slaves were offended, but the rest of humanity chuckled and said, "Yeah? And?" But now, since that was so long ago, we have a new group in the age of 'manufacture and discard the unwanted human thing' trying it again. Sure that all of this gender difference is the result of some bigoted conspiracy throughout the age, using their 'child' as the guinea pig, these brave new souls endeavor to set humanity right. Again. Sigh.
