More and more people are trying to allow children to grow as their own self. Musician Grimes has announced on Twitter that she will allow her child to decide their own gender.
Grimes, real name Claire Boucher, held a question and answer session with fans on Friday to promote her new album, Miss Anthropocene.
Many of the questions asked related to her relationship to Elon Musk, and their baby. She is expected to give birth this Spring. She publicly confirmed her pregnancy in January.
One fan asked if the she was having a girl or a boy, and Grimes started a conversation about gender by stating that: “They may decide their fate and identity."
The 31-year-old singer is expecting her first child with Tesla CEO Elon Musk, with whom she has been in a relationship since 2018.
Their relationship has been controversial since the beginning.
So, it was no surprise that the internet had a lot of thoughts on this.
