Pink has spent her entire career challenging the compliance restrictions of gender norms, and it is a point of view she wishes to convey to her children.
She told The Sunday People that she intends to raise her daughter Willow as gender neutral, allowing her to make free decisions that are not dictated by what society declares that women should or should not do.
"We are a home without labels." Last week, Willow told me she would marry an African woman, she said: "Great, can you teach me how to make African food?" Pink said. And she's like: "Sure mom, and we're going to live with you while our house is getting ready." He joked that his only question for Willow was "who is paying for this by the way?"
He also praised a school for supporting gender-neutral approaches, adding: "The bathroom outside of the nursery said:" Neutral gender, any & # 39 ;, and it was a drawing in many different ways. I took a picture and wrote: & # 39; Progress. "I thought it was amazing, I love that the children are having this conversation."
This is certainly not the first time that Pink, whose real name is Alecia Beth Moore, has spoken of freeing future generations of gender conformity. Her speech at the VMAs, accepting the Video Vanguard award, was dedicated to Willow, where she talked about her own fight to teach her daughter the lesson of self-acceptance.
She revealed her surprise when Willow told her that she had thought of herself as the ugliest girl he knew, all because she looked like "a boy with long hair". Pink's response was immediately creative: he gave his daughter a PowerPoint presentation, full of images of musical icons famous for their androgyny, from Prince to David Bowie, from Annie Lennox to Janis Joplin.

"Artists who live their truth," he added. "They probably make fun of every day of their lives, and they continue, wave their flag and inspire the rest of us."
He then explained to his daughter that he always made fun of his childlike appearance, being too masculine, acting too strong or having too many opinions. Pink asked her daughter: "When people make fun of me … do you see me growing my hair? No, mom." Do you see me changing my body? "No mom." Do you see me selling stadiums all over the world? "Yes mom".
"Then, baby, girl," he said. "We do not change, we take the gravel and the shell and make a pearl." She celebrated the importance of showing the world "more types of beauty", before thanking those in music who continue to proudly exhibit their true selves.
