Mum Reveals she is Teaching her 4-year-old Son to use Gender-neutral Words and Urges him to Wear Dresses to School in a bid to 'Break Stereotypes'



A mother has revealed that she is raising her 4-year-old son to use gender-neutral pronouns and encouraging him to wear dresses to school in a bid to teach him about inclusivity.



The mum admitted though that he gets picked on by his peers at school because of his clothing and long hair.



Educational worker Lorenza Bruno, 30, from Florida, gave birth to her son LJ in 2016 with her partner Louis, 29. The mum said her number one goal as a mum was to raise a good human who would be open, loving, and accepting of everyone.

From a young age, she encouraged LJ to express himself freely whilst ensuring she would raise a son who was kind and gentle, as well as someone who could recognize their role to create a safe and equal society for women, all cultures, and himself, DailyMail reports.



In a bid to teach her son to break gender stereotypes, Lorenza would read books to LJ that showcased different families, encouraged embracing feelings and featured both male and female characters, who were able to be who they wanted to be.



She also spoke to him using inclusive language such as "firefighter" instead of "fireman" as a way to educate his mind on the diverse world around him.

Lorenza said her son first asked to wear a dress after watching the Disney film Frozen. She said this is when the conversation started around gender stereotypes and clothing.
