Surry Hills mother, Lynne Seede, is having trouble deciding which elite private school she should book Tarquin and Geneva into.
“I hope whichever religious institution we decide upon is supportive of Tarquin and Geneva’s decisions,” she says.
“For the good part of the decade, I’ve successfully raised two gender-neutral children, but its getting to that point where they might need to start wearing stockings in winter,”
While Lynne’s husband, Mark – a succesful investment banker – says he pretty much just assumes their genders are the one they appear to have been born with, the children, aged eight and seven are yet to wear any pink clothing.
“I just want them to be comfortable with who they are,” says Lynne.
“And if that means they have to wear bland, unisex clothing and not play sport, then so be it”.
This isn’t the first time Lynne Seede, a publicist and food blogger, has made the headlines with her alternative lifestyle and non-stop instagram profile.
In October last year, Mrs Seede put forward a proposal to local council that enforce an official gluten-free zone to cover roughly two kilometres of Crown street, one of the busiest night life precincts in Australia.
“We aren’t asking for this. We are demanding it,” she said at the time.
“There are thousands of Surry Hills residents that recognise gluten can be harmful, and quite frankly, we don’t want it here,”
