baby
Binary gender is like disco: it had one stroke, got uncool fast, and it is never coming back. Today, young millennials and Gen-Zs are genderqueer, third gender, neutrois, gender fluid, and a lot of other delightfully confusing identities. The pink or blue dialectic is boring and hegemonic (I’m talking to you, Cis, with your repressive gender-reveal videos). I do not know what we are calling the cohort after Gen-Z, but if you are about to bring a baby in this non-normative world, you better start accepting that the new way to fit in is to not fit in. Don’t know how demonstrate your awareness? I am here to help with a list of non-gender normative baby names:
Mirror
Starbuck
Rondo
Shawarma
Linen
Waterloo
Sorghum
Fox
Mulder
Pike
Peyote
Manilow
Relish
Loyal
Denim
Maple
Harvest
Kiosk
Placid
Beyond
Phylum
Harare
Tibet
Valise
