Zoomer, el pequeño criado sin género, sus padres no le dicen si es niña o niño

Un caso extraordinario.

Juega con cualquier juguete, viste con ropa de niño y niña, se desconoce su identidad sexual. Así es la vida de Zoomer, un pequeño de dos años que es criado y educado en Utah por Kyl (socióloga) y Brent Myer (diseñador gráfico) sin un género definido.

Los progenitores estadounidenses no le dijeron a nadie el sexo de su bebé, para evitar que fuese clasificado en un grupo u otro. Hoy, el pequeño vive sus días sin conocer el calificativo común de "niño o niña".

A través de un blog, Raising Zoomer, la familia Myer habla de la crianza de su retoño a quien llaman “Z” nada más. “Decidimos no asignarle un género a Zoomer y solo saben su verdadero sexo familiares cercanos”.

Durante estos dos años, Zoomer ha vivido rodeado de todo tipo de juguetes y se ha vestido con vestimenta sin limitaciones. Dependiendo del día, hay quien piensa que es niño o niña, incluso ambos si viste con dos prendas en un mismo día.

Una historia similar se reportó el año pasado en los medios de comunicación. Se trató de Searyl Atli, un bebé canadiense registrado sin género, como «indeterminado», algo que se consiguió por primera vez gracias a su progenitor, Kori Doti. Con el caso se llegó a plantear una tercera opción de “género neutro” en documentos oficiales.

Kyl y Brent reconocen, además, que tienen que hacer frente a numerosos comentarios y preguntas sobre su retoño. “Llega un momento en el que no nos molestamos en contestar. Elegimos cuándo y a quién explicarle las cosas”, comentan en el blog.

Los padres del pequeño aseguran que Zoomer será capaz de elegir y crear su personalidad, a través de experimentar y divertirse en lo que le gusta. Por ello, creen que escogerá un género cuando tenga, más o menos, tres o cuatro años.

“Simplemente, creemos que no es cosa nuestra tomar la decisión en su nombre”, afirman y aseguran que “Z tendrá la libertad de explorar y crear su propia identidad, sin importar las expectativas de un género u otro”.

Zoomer Coyote, you’re 18 months old! Everyone comments on how much hair you have. It is an impressive mop. You let me trim your bangs while you eat breakfast. You’ve started signing and saying words. You say “nay” for horse and you say “bird” and “dog” and “milk” and “nana” 🍌and “aush” for *outside*. When you see Coca-Cola trucks you say “fire trut” and I completely understand why you think that. You LOVE big trucks and buses. You wave to them all and get a little upset when they drive out of sight. Your favorite word though is “dada.” You love your daddy SO much. You also love Dory! 🐟 You have a Dory toy that you look for every time you get in the bathtub and when we’re in the living room you point to the TV and say “Dor!” You have very specific books that you like. You ask us to read “busy school” over and over and when we try to read a new book you say “no” and push it away and open “busy school” back up. Zooms, you love foot massages. When I lay you down to go to bed you stick your leg in the air until I rub it. When we’re sitting on the couch watching TV, your little foot creeps up on to my tummy and you look at me like “whenever you’re ready.” So I massage your little toes for a few minutes and then you climb up and let me hold you for a while. You’re so friendly, honey. You wave to everyone and say “hi” and “bye.” You love to watch people and you’re very interested in babies, which makes me realize you aren’t really a baby anymore. You’re a toddler… and every day you become more independent. I can’t believe how quickly time is flying by. Recently, I made a conscious decision to slow down and really take every moment with you in – from walking at your pace to school, or taking note of how funny it was when you threw your polar bear toy into my plate tonight and rice flew all over me (even though I had to act like it was a little naughty because you can’t be throwing toys at Shanghai Cafe!) You're so silly and adorable and clever and uninhibited. I’m so lucky to be your mom, Zoomer. I love you. 💜

“Hello baby”

Today at Liberty Park, Zoomer got involved with a bunch of kids running a Pancake House. (I asked for a burrito, but was told they only serve pancakes). Zoomer was responsible for mixing the pancake batter (bark). There was a kid sweeping and every 3 minutes they said the store would be closing in 15 minutes, it was a fun infinity loop. One child kept challenging me with addition questions, “what’s 2,000 plus 800,000?” (which I nailed, thank you very much). But my favorite moment was when one kid ordered pancakes and asked how much they were and the *cashier* said “ten dollars.” And then the young customer plopped a pine cone down on the counter and said, “I’ll give you ten thousand dollars instead.” And my heart melted as the young ones were generously paid for their hard work! Then, another kid asked for pancakes but said they didn’t have any money, and the cashier said it was no problem, and gave them some bark pancakes for free. And I thought, that’s exactly the type of world I want to live in – one where strangers work together and become friends and where people pay what they can afford and are never turned away, and I genuinely think that’s the type of world these kids are going to grow up to build. I give five stars to the Liberty Park Haus of Pancakes & Social Justice 🥞 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
