Singer Pink has spoken out about raising her kids free of sexuality or gender expectations, saying they can choose their own genders.
The mother of six-year-old Willow and 11-month-old Jameson opened up about their “label-less” household, Pink News has reported.
“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.’
“Who is paying for this by the way?” Pink joked.
A gay icon, Pink is often mistakenly thought to be a lesbian.
Earlier this year the star said she didn’t want her own sexuality to be put “in a box”, and called for fans to “leave it alone”.
Pink praised schools that are beginning to let children be themselves and comfortable in their own gender, rather than forcing conformity with gender expectations.
“I was in a school and the bathroom outside the kindergarten said ‘Gender neutral—anybody’,” she said.
“I took a picture of it and I wrote, ‘Progress’.
“I thought that was awesome. I love that kids are having this conversation.”
The singer said that more than any gender she simply feels like a mother.
“They are my everything,” she said.
“It’s the two best decisions I ever made. Every decision I make is a choice because it affects my family.
“I’m a fucking grownup now, it’s so weird. I’m still a 12-year-old boy.”
Pink has long spoken out against gender stereotypes.
At the MTV Video Music Awards in August, she spoke about encouraging her daughter to express her gender however she wants to, and creating a presentation of androgynous artists to inspire her.
