Pink: ‘I’m Raising My Children to be Gender-Neutral’

  • Save

Pink is throwing pre-defined gender classifications out the window — starting with her kids.

Forget about bathrooms.  What’s your policy when it comes to your own kids?

Now, Pink has declared that she’ll be raising her children gender-neutral.  Which means no uncomfortable ‘mom, dad’ discussions of any sort.

The open attitude starts with Pink’s daughter, Willow.  “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?’” the pop singer told the Mirror this weekend.

“We are a very label-less household.”

Ironically, Pink just labeled African people by assuming that they automatically know how to make African food.  Or, that they even like ‘African food,’ which itself labels all food from the giant African continent as being the same.  But we’ll let all that slide.

Pink, whose greatest pop success happened in the early 2000s, is still actively putting out music.  That includes the recent track, ‘What About Us,’ which remained a top-ranked Spotify single with nearly 200 million listens.

That said, she’s also focusing on family matters.  Currently, she has two young kids with motorcycle racing husband Carey Hart. The pair have been on-again, off-again since 2006, though their martial issues (and reconciliations) have proven good material for Pink’s music.

The singer’s declaration ups the ante for other celebrity parents, especially those that parade their children in public.  Look no further than uber-celebrity couple Jay-Z and Beyonce, a pair prone to showboating their kids for maximum effect.  Others, most notably Adele, are famously protective when it comes to kids — even turning down multi-million dollar offers to include her kids in advertisements.
