This should be how it is regardless of whether or not a kid is referred to with binary gender terms, though. Segregating toys by the intended owners’ genitals — which is all that really differentiates the sexes of pre-pubescent children — is a ridiculous practice. The same goes for clothing and just about everything else a child might want or need.
