Theybie

What does Theybie mean?

A baby that isn’t assigned a specific gender

A theybie is a term used to refer to a baby raised without gender stereotypes or expectations. The baby grows in an environment where gender norms are not imposed, giving them the freedom to identify as male, female, or nonbinary when they are ready.

The idea behind raising a kid as a theybie is to avoid predefining their identity based on societal gender roles. This includes not having gender reveal parties, using colors or decorations based on gender, or even choosing clothes or toys that are gender-specific.

The term theybie gained popularity in 2018 and is a blend of the words “they” and “baby”. It’s a term widely used by progressive parents who aim to let their kids explore and define their own identities, free from any gender-related expectations.
