How To Break The Ice With Little Girls That Doesn't Involve Commenting On Their Appearance. Tea and Feminism. Remember Storm? Checking in on the baby being raised gender-neutral. It's been more than two years since we first met a chubby-cheeked 4-month-old named Storm. Back then, Storm's parents weren't saying whether their child was a boy or a girl. In an attempt to mitigate at least some of the gendered messages children are blitzed with, only a handful of people knew the baby's sex.
