What does theyby mean?

A gender-neutral baby

A theyby is a term that refers to a baby that is being raised in a gender-neutral environment to defend against gender socialization. The purpose of this parenting strategy is to not push a child into gender stereotypes or roles and let him or her choose what to become.

A theyby is a product of one or more parents choosing to shield a baby from gender expectations placed upon him or her based on sex. This includes, not having a gender reveal party or gender-specific colors, clothes, and toys.
