Reason to teach your children #7460 -- there is no such construct, verb or noun, as "homeschool." A good parent teaches his children; he does not "homeschool" them. Avoid people and organizations who employ this unhappy and ineffective neologism.

"Gender" refers to something very different to "sex".

Gender is is a personal or social manifestation that may or may not relate to biological sex. Before you trash this for being wishy washy liberal ideology, or something like that, remember that there are many people who are genuinely biologically intersex, not just in terms of their outer genitalia, but also in terms of their chromosomes. Previous medical attempts to 'assign' a gender to such individuals has proved to have deleterious psychological consequences, and often, as gender cannot by physically determined, the best course is to allow such individuals to grow up and made decisions about their gender identity which can then be acted upon medically.

For the parents of an intersex child and for the children themselves, to have peers who have some kind of understanding that gender may exist on a spectrum might help to mitigate the notorious cruelty of small children towards those who are different.

This is entirely ignoring the vast variety of gender identity disorders, or indeed, the fact that many cultures construe gender identities very differently...
