When it comes to raising children, Zoe Saldana prefers to create them in a gender-neutral environment, free of stereotypes.
“I’ll always be honest, and that’s always the best way to bring a healthy and sincere speech,” the star behind Gamora, the heroine of the Avengers universe , remarked to media.
Saldana has three children with her husband, Marco Perego Saldana: the four-year-old Cy and Bowie twins, and two-year-old Zen.
“[The twins] made a comment two weeks ago, like, ‘Boys are stronger than girls.’ ‘Because they’re in that phase of comparisons, you need to take a moment to sort out an answer that they understand,” said the actress. .
Her hope is that by avoiding gender stereotypes, her children can reach adulthood without carrying a “weight.” “We have a very gender neutral environment in which my husband participates in many tasks that are normally given to women, and vice versa,” he said. “I do a lot of ‘male’ things.” “I know: fixing the TV, fixing things that have broken down, we have a home with a gender flow.
Recently, Vanity Fair magazine pointed out that Meghan Markle and Prince Harry would also like their baby to grow away from gender stereotypes , avoiding, for example, determining which clothes and toys are “girlish” and “boyish”.
