Canadian couple decides to raise "genderless" third child

Kathy Witterick and her husband, David Stocker, have decided to keep their baby Storm's gender a secret. They feel that they are giving their child the gift of freedom from social norms.

The Canadian couple is raising Storm, their third child, "genderless." Their decision has set off a storm of discussions across the country.

The midwives who delivered the baby, a family friend and Storm's older brothers (Jazz, 5 and Kio, 2) are the only people who know the secret.

In an email the couple wrote: "We've decided not to share Storm's sex for now-a tribute to freedom and choice in place of limitation, a stand up to what the world could become in Storm's lifetime…."

Not everyone feels their decision is in the child's best interest.
