Pink Revealed That She Is Raising Her Daughter A Gender Neutral Child And Sparked A Debate All Over The Internet

Pink is used to causing a stir when it comes to her edgy song lyrics and music videos. However, the 38-year-old singer is now in the midst of a different kind of controversy.

In a recent interview, Pink revealed reasons why she has decided to raise her child as gender neutral.

The singer said she wants to allow her six-year-old to ‘make free choices’. She doesn’t want her children to be defined by ‘traditional gender roles’.

Pink, who also has a son named Jameson with husband Carey Hart, recalled a very cute recent conversation with her daughter.

Pink told The Sunday People:

We are a very label-less household. Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like, ‘great, can you teach me how to make African food?’

And she’s like, ‘sure mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready’.

She also praised one school for supporting gender-neutral approaches:

The bathroom outside the kindergarten said: ‘Gender Neutral – anybody’, and it was a drawing of many different shapes. I took a picture of it and I wrote: ‘Progress’. I thought that was awesome. I love that kids are having this conversation.

And this isn’t the first time Pink has spoken publicly about freeing future generations from gender conformity.

For instance, Pink’s heartfelt speech at the VMA’s was dedicated to her daughter, Willow. During the speech, she spoke of her fight to teach Willow the lesson of self-acceptance after she made some worrying comments about being ‘ugly’.

Pink said that Willow thought of herself as the ‘ugliest girl’ she knew because she looked like ‘a boy with long hair’.

So what did Pink do to deal with the situation?

She made Willow a PowerPoint presentation with famous icons from Prince to David Bowie and Annie Lennox to Jannie Joplin.

Pink also said that she sees herself more as a mother rather than a woman:

I’m much more mum than I am anything else. Absolutely 100 per cent. They (Willow and Jameson) are my everything. It’s the two best decisions I ever made. Every decision I make is a choice because it affects my family.

I do bake sales and lemonade stands. I take my kid to school and try to get there on time. I’m a f**king grown up now, it’s so weird. I’m still a 12-year-old boy.

Pink, who made a musical comeback after her son’s birth gained worldwide praise for posting a cute photo of her breastfeeding with the caption: ‘Jameson can multitask too’.

Fans immediately rushed to the comments to praise the superstar for a topic that is often argued about.

Delighted by Pink’s announcement, fans took it as a positive message that Pink and her husband are raising their children to be open-minded individuals.

However, some were not so inspired by her comments calling them ‘rubbish’ and she’s doing it because it’s the ‘fashionable thing to do’.

Pink who chose a color closely associated with the female identity of her stage name, they called her a not-so-neutral color:
