The project revolves around perception of gender in today's society and more specifically gender neutral parenting. To shed light on the issue it uses two contradictory theories to present the schism between philosophers. As a special focus point, interviews with people familiar with gender neutral nurture, was chosen. The ideas of both contradictory theorists will be applied on the data gained from the interviews. The goal of this project is to compare theories with reality and by using deductive methods describe the real nature of gender neutral parenting, as well as pointing out its potential positives and negatives.
