Pink reveals she is raising her children to be gender-neutral.

Back in December we shared how the singer had said she did not want her daughter Willow, six, and 11-month-old son Jameson to be defined by traditional gender roles as they live in a ‘label-less household’.

The 38-year-old also revealed that Willow had told her she wants to marry an African woman when she grows up, while hilariously explaining that the tot informed her she plans to stay with her parents when she meets her ‘wife’.

‘We are a very label-less household,’ the star , who is married to motorcycle racer Carey Hart, 42, told The People.

‘Last week Willow told me she is going to marry an African woman. I was like: “Great, can you teach me how to make African food?”

‘And she’s like: “Sure mama, and we are going to live with you while our house is getting ready.”‘

Update April 2018

This week Pink admitted in an interview with People, she’s just taking it “day by day” when it comes to being a mum to her two kids Jameson Moon, 15 months, and Willow Sage, 6½, with husband Carey Hart.

“The thing about parenting is you never know if anything you’re doing is working,” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s cover story.

“That’s been the most humbling thing for me. In my head, I sound amazing and then I turn around and her eyes are completely glazed over. I have no idea. We’ll see.”

She also added, “I feel like gender-neutral is in itself a label and I’m label-less,” she says. “I don’t like labels at all so I believe that a woman and a girl can do anything.”

Pink says she believes in “fairness and justice. And I believe that a boy can do anything. So I have boys that flip dirt bikes and I have boy friends that wear dresses. It’s all okay to me. It’s whatever floats your boat. So that’s the kind of house that we live in.”

A discussion around the topic on Studio 10 in December was very divided in opinions.

Comments include:

“Pink is attention seeking by virtue signalling. The truth is she is worried people have forgotten she exists. Ita is correct. It’s nauseating.”

“Surely if that’s her real intention why has given them names that smacks of a gender… Willow and Jameson.”

“You are either male or female. Not nothing…!”

“You’d think people would concentrate on the real issues that exist with raising children instead of this baloney! What next?”

“Teach your kids right from wrong, respect and manners, play with trucks or dolls and let kids be kids. They will work the rest out themselves…”

“I think it’s more about teaching your child than no matter what or who you are it’s okay to do things that are either typically male or female stereotypical things.”

Singer Paloma Faith, says she wants more kids and wants them “to be who they want to be”.

She revealed “I want two or three kids in all and they’ll be gender neutral.”

  • i must say this does lower my respect for Pink a little. She is clearly not really raising her children to be gender neutral as such because she has given them male and female names and is also seen to be dressing them in male and female clothing. It’s fine to let your children make decisions for themselves about sexuality but I don’t think people should pre-determine this by raising them so wacky that they are actually forcing them into different roles unconsciously. In not labelling, you are actually allowing your own form of labelling.

  • They are her children and her business.

  • So this is now becoming a thing! What about just teaching our children how to grow up in the world we live in to be kind, respectful, have empathy….

  • I think that teaching children the right values in life are the main thing – not to lie, cheat or steal, be true to each other and parents and love one another – gender is not important they will learn that themselves.

  • As long as the children are raised with good manners and show respect to others (and themselves) anything else will sort itself out later. As long as you accept their chosen lifestyle then nothing else matters. Just give them love and your support should they ever need it

  • I think it’s good to try not to limit kids… But you can try too hard.

  • All I have to say is what is this world coming to when you can’t even bring up your child being either a boy or a girl. I think everyone is missing the point instead of all this baloney people should encourage their children to talk to them, have an open and honest relationship with them and things will work out and they will also know they they can trust you and come and talk to you about anything.

  • People forgetting Pink exists? Total rubbish. She is encouraging her children to be themselves which is what is important. I have always told my children that I have no problem with their sexual orientation and I have never had anyone tell me its wrong.

  • It really shouldn’t bother anyone else they are her children and I am sure they will make their own decisions about who they are when they are older.

  • Each to their own, although I think exploiting the subject by speaking up and out will only attract negative interest and opinions!

  • Don’t see what all the drama is about. It’s her children and she can raise them any way she wants. The most important this is that they are respectful people, which it appears to me they are.

  • It are her children, she’s free to bring them up in her believes.
    Personally I think it’s good to give your kids the space to develop in the personalities they are and mend to be.

  • Her kids, her choice
    That’s totally up to pink

  • Children will be children and do and be what they want in their own time. This shouldn’t be force fed to them

  • Personally I see no issue with this, it is not harming the children and it teaches them tolerance and the confidence to be who they want to be. Each to their own.
