Subject: RE: BS: RE, Vital to preserve gender.
In Scotland, we still use the word "wean" for small children I like it, it's natural sounding and comforting to wee ones.

I of course don't object to "kids" which I believe is an Americanism.
I do object for infant boys or girls being referred to as the opposite gender, this shows the parents to be manipulative or psychologically abusive.
