After remaining quiet for over a week, actress Kate Hudson is suddenly attacking the media for “click bait” stories saying she is raising her baby daughter “genderless” because…. that is what she said she was doing!
On January 18, Hudson said she and her partner were raising their daughter to be “genderless” and that they intended to let the child “choose” her gender, according to an interview with AOL.
Hudson said having a girl is a different than having her two boys from a previous relationship, adding, “It doesn’t really change my approach, but there’s definitely a difference.”
But even with that in mind, Hudson claimed, “I think you just raise your kids individually regardless – like a genderless [approach],” the 39-year-old actress said.
Despite that, Hudson said her three-month-old daughter already has a “feminine energy.”
How one can tell that a three-week-old baby has a “feminine energy” is anyone’s guess. I guess that is just more goofy Hollywood nonsense.
The Avatar 2 star went on to say, “I will say that, right now, she is incredibly feminine in her energy, her sounds, and her way. It’s very different from the boys, and it’s really fun to actually want to buy kids’ clothes.”
But now, that all seems to be out the window because Hudson is claiming she never said any of it.
Hudson is now attacking anyone passing on the story as pushing “click bait.”
“Dear all my friends, fans and others who read this,” Hudson said on Instagram on Monday, “Recently someone asked me something along the lines of, if having and raising a girl is different from boys. My response was simple. Not really.”
“This whole click bait tactic of saying I’m raising my daughter to be ‘genderless’ is silly and frankly doesn’t even make sense,” she continued. “I raise and continue to raise my children, both my boys and girl to feel free to be exactly who they want to be. Me saying a ‘genderless approach’ was a way of refocusing the conversation in a direction that could exist outside of the female stereotype.”
“I just try to raise my kids to be good people with the best tools to face this big crazy world,” she concluded.
That is a pretty head spinning claim, especially since she is the one who said it in the first place.
