Is it alright for kids under 12 to classify themselves? (EX: Sexuality, gender, religion)
Classification is still fluid through and past puberty. Listen to what kids want and tell them you will accept and love them no matter what but to take their time trying to figure themselves out. There is plenty of time to tweak and make adjustments. Whatever they decide must conform strictly to one rule. It has to be their decision, based upon what he/she feels is the best for themselves. Everybody else's opinion is irrelevant.
Well this is a bit tricky. Sexuality sure , religion sure, but gender?
