Children deserve gendered society. They need the influence of both a mother and a father, it is their birthright. There are times when death or divorce prevent children from being raised by a mom and a dad, but I think we all agree, that such a situation is a tragedy in the life of that child. Men and women are different. There’s no question. Each gender has a gift to give to the next generation. Children need stoic strength, as well as gentle kindness, fishing trips and horseplay as much as hugs and emotional comforts.
There are stereotypical gender roles characterized in a myriad of ways, but the bottom line is that each gender is gloriously unique by design. Any marital-like arrangement that denies a child one gender or another in it’s parentage by design is less than ideal, less than it should be, and less than a child deserves.
