We Didn’t Gender Babies?

An increasing number of parents are choosing to raise their children gender-neutral. What will happen if the movement grows, and we raise whole generations of people who are not assigned a binary gender at birth? What would be the flow-on effects in health and education, and for our institutions of law and citizenship?

Is it possible to shield a child from ideas of gender entirely? Is altogether abolishing gender actually feasible, or desirable?
