Wildfires have no gender.

What if the kid doesn't identify with your definitions of gender?
Then you burned down a forest for nothing.

Gender reveal parties are a monument to narcissism the epitome of being 'basic' the worst.

My sister did one with a coloured balloon, she probably diverted an airplane, killed multiple birds and murdered a complete full beach of baby turtles.

I think it's ok to call a boy a "boy" and a girl a "girl" until they're old enough figure things out for themselves.
/still shouldn't burn down a forest for it though

Real Americans are always like "Durr commiefornia" but this is another example that shows California is filled with rednecks.  Real Americans would feel perfectly at home in California.

Gender reveal parties are narcissistic bullshiat. Even the woman who 'invented' them regrets having done so.

Please, people, stop with these stupid things. Just have your farkin' baby and STFU about it.

Now, please enjoy this somewhat unrelated graphic to close out my TED talk...

I see what you did there.

Also, I've developed a pet peeve on "gender" vs. "sex". What's funny is that I'm a cis male, and by no means a social justice warrior. It's probably the grammar vocabulary Nazi in me.

/Sex reveal parties sound way more fun than gender reveal parties, anyway.

It's helpful to remember that the noun gender refers to the word, not the object.

In German, Feuer is neuter (das Feuer), but Brand is masculine (der Brand).  In French, the equivalent words, feu, and incendie, are both masculine.

In French, auto is masculine, while voiture is feminine, even though they refer to the same thing.  Weirdly, vagin is masculine.  Go figure.  (Yes, that's what it means).

Northern: Is gender reveal replacing baby showers?  Or is this a second baby shower?


I'll tell you, I've been to quite a few baby showers, most with the ladies only (it is nice that men also are being included more these days), but the most stupid thing was the tiny diapers filled with baby poop (peanut butter), which was "cut"e maybe the first time, but we never blew shiat up.

I truly believe that a certain subset of men have found another way to blow shiat up and use the gender reveal to do so.

Also, gender reveal parties are stupid anyway, IMHO.  If you want to get stuff at the shower (as in showered with needed gifts), just include the baby's gender in the invite.

I totally understand. I have been fighting this battle for 20 years. Sex is biological, gender is a social construct. Yes they each have variations and exceptions, but sex is generally binary with matching biological characteristics. . Gender can literally change at the drop of a hat and every person has a mixture of different personality traits which are either viewed as feminine, masculine, or androgynous.

It's an unthinking, destructive, self-absorbed narcissist, like its parents. Should fit right in, here in the 21st.

After having my kids in Europe, then moving back to the US, I can firmly say that we don't like kids or families much.  Even in my lib Boston suburb they wanted to charge us $5000 per child for all day kindergarten in a public school.
Daycare and kids activities are absurdly expensive, and I'm only talking about sports and such locally, not the $10,000 6 day Disney vacation that most Americans feel is some sort of requirement for middle class achievement.

It's an excuse to have a party for the guys and the girls to tell everyone what they have to buy for the baby shower. At least it's not one of those where the parents say money only - and yes, I know someone who did that.

It's a, "give the parents stuff, too," party. Add in diaper parties and daddy showers... I've seen people wring five rounds of gifts out of a baby that's not even their first.

Throwing a party where people give you free stuff isn't dumb.

What is dumb is showing up.
