Today Show/Are societal roles defined by gender?

This morning, The Today Show featured a couple who are not telling anyone the gender of their newly born infant. (They have two other sons.) They want to allow this child to become what makes that child happy , content and comfortable.

It raises an interesting question: Are societal roles, such as wanting to become a mother …….defined by how children are raised? If this child has the choice of playing with dolls or trucks, choosing the colors pink or blue , wearing their hair long or short and choosing whatever clothes they want be it a dress or pants, can it make a difference? I will be interested in following this story.

So far, there is outrage towards the parents of this child.What’s your opinion? Did you feel pressured to think your biological destiny was to have and raise a child? How?
