Today, Jian spoke to Kathy Witterick and David Stocker, the Toronto parents who became an international media sensation for their decision not to reveal the sex of their baby named Storm. They wanted to set the record straight as they feel much misinformation is being reported by the mass media.
The public reaction to their story has been divided - some are supporting the family's choice to keep Storm's gender private, while many are accusing the parents of turning their youngest child into a "lab experiment".
Why do you think Storm's story has struck such a nerve, causing an international media frenzy? What important questions do you think it raises about gender/sex, parenting and alternative education?
