A US-based astrologist, Claire Foster, has sparked mixed reactions on the internet over a tweet she posted about gender identity.
Taking to the microblogging platform on Tuesday, December 13, she said it should be considered illegal for parents to name their children until the child decides on the gender pronoun they want to adopt.
According to Claire who has over forty thousand followers on Twitter, children should be assigned with numbers instead of names, until they are old enough to choose their gender.
“It should be illegal to name children until they’ve decided on their gender pronouns. All babies should just be given numbers”, she wrote.
