An anonymous parent went viral recently after their cool and inclusive “talk” with their kid about the gender spectrum ended up on Twitter. Jay Jackson, who identifies as non-binary, was at work when a kid asked them if they were “a boy or a girl.”
Jay told The Independent that when the kid asked, they were “nervous to respond to the kid’s question at all because of how the parent might react, but they were asking so politely and curiously so I just blurted it out as simply as I could.”
Jay blurted out “neither.”
Then, the child’s parents stepped in to help explain.
