Why do people think it's ok to call babies he or she? They can't speak yet,so they can't say their prefered gender?

Please refer to them as babyself or toddlerself until they could say their pronoun preference otherwise your ableist & transphobic.

    The vast majority of people grow up to identify with their physical gender .. and that is because their hormones are working normally, and their genetic content is normal.

    Therefore it is normal, and in fact healthy, to call a male baby "he" and a female baby "she".

    If, at some point down the road, you find out that the child is transgender, you adjust your designations.

    What a PC attitude! In this instance, PC stands for probably confused. What is wrong with using anatomy?

    The person who asked this question is obviously NOT mentally normal and needs psychiatric care.

    No sane person could ask this question.

    As they cannot speak they will not be offended, no matter what they are called.
