I'd much rather hear about someone's breakfast than be at a party focused on whether or not your unborn child has a dick.

I told the Wife/Doctors/Nurses/Techs that I didn't want to know the sex, before the birth.  They respected my wishes.  I wanted the traditional experience of finding out at birth.  No one has ever invited me to a gender reveal party.  If someone did invite me, I probably wouldn't attend.  I kind of hate parties in general.

No one is making you attend these parties, why the hell does anyone care if they throw a stupid party?

Because there are many many thousands per year and some small collection of them have mishaps like this.

Gender reveal parties are dumb, sure.  But aren't themselves inherently dangerous.

What is inherently dangerous is idiot amateur engineers playing with pyro, which they'll find a different excuse for if "what genitalia shape does my future child have" parties go out of vogue.

The unborn child clearly has two dicks, they're the ones hosting the gender revel party.

It seems a little bit crazy, but you could have a gender reveal party that doesn't involve fire.

Every single gender reveal party has ended in an explosion, a wildfire, a hail of bullets, a hurricane, a bear attack, cluster bombs, multiple decapitations or a combination of those things. They should be outlawed.

Wrong.  Dick/no-dick is sex, which is a whole different kind of party.

Gender is whatever you think you are, therefore it is impossible for an unborn child to have a gender.  "Wokeness" turning into the misuse of words has got to stop (e.g. let's just replace sex with gender and everything is all better).  The "gender" of the baby was measured either by looking at an ultrasound or by doing a DNA test, both of which can only determine sex.

/this response isn't necessarily targeted at you, I just saw the word dick and responded
//for some reason no one wants to come to my unborn baby sex party
///hold on, there's a knock at the door

World War I started when Gavrilo Princip threw a gender reveal party for the Austro-Hungarian heir, Archduke Franz Ferdinand.

Not sure if serious.  If so, you're no better than the "woke" people.  People use the word gender instead of sex because sex has a secondary meaning of intercorse, duh.

Multiple showers are frowned on.  But gender reveal semi tolerated gifts for second kids.

At first I was excited to hear my wife was planning a shower with all her girl friends, and that I could join them if I really wanted to.

But then I got there, and it was just a bunch of baby gifts.

Talk about a let down.
