WTF? When's this going to stop?
Does a pregnant woman have to die during one of these for people to stop?

A tragedy for the familes involved, a salutary lesson for most other people.

Maybe it's time we just wait until the kid decides it's own gender later in life.

So is it a boy or girl??

And when that kid asks his mom why he doesn't have a dad the answer is going to be really stupid.

Idiot.

Instead of a baby shower, it was a father shower...as in pieces of him falling all over the ground

You're cutting off their genes at less than the replacement rate.  It's not perfect, but it's better than nothing.

But we still get to blow shiat up, right?

I've talked it over with the fiancée. When we get there, I'll announce the baby's gender by Photoshopping Admiral Ackbar to say "IT'S A BOY!" or "IT'S A GIRL!"  and posting it to social media.

Old story, but just a reminder that the lady to invented this bizzar party regrets she even had the idea. They are stupid on a lot of different levels.

Clearly the fetus has telekinetic abilities and did not wish to have its gender assumed.

/Its preferred pronouns are BANG and KABOOM

Not to be an asshole but couldn't he have done everyone a favor and blown himself up BEFORE he bred??

Man, the generation after Z is gonna be some epic super heros with the amount of tragic origin stories they are producing before they are born.

"So what's your story"
"My parents burnt down 1/3rd of the US. You?"
"Dad blew himself up"
"Epic!"

I wouldn't wish death on anyone who holds gender reveal parties per se. Maybe some minor burns. On their ball sack maybe.

Should have done something safer, like hand out cigars.

The plan for my gender reveal party is to count down from ten then reveal a bottle of water, and then explain to the guests that gender is fluid, And that maybe they were expecting a sex reveal party.

/Which, unfortunately, is also problematic in its ambiguity.

I have a cannon that I no longer trust to shoot anymore after a fellow friend had one shrapnel and cost him a eye along with other serious injuries.
What a senseless death.
My other relatives once sent their loved ones up in a fireworks mortar. Fortunately there were only a few singed hairs.
I wonder if I might be related to red necks?

Why can't people just stick with the Raiders of the Lost Ark theme like normal people? You get a bronze medallion with a symbol red hot and the father-to-be grabs it. If it brands him with the Mars zodiac symbol, it's a boy, if it's Venus, it's a girl.

It also tends to encourage smaller family sizes, helping prevent overpopulation.

Just think how much safer everyone would have been if this thing had identified as non-binary:

Why are people having gender reveal parties? If God wanted people to know the gender of the babbies, the womb would be external, like when John McCain was pregnant with Lindsey Graham.

This is why we had the blood test and just told people what we were having when we told them wife was pregnant. Matter-of-fact, we don't need a farking party. Making Babby isn't that big of a deal - any idiot can make one, and no, they're not a miracle, they're farking annoying screaming shiat machines.

If anything, the 'celebration' for pregnancy should be more like a memorial service as you say farewell to all of your erstwhile friends.

"A Sullivan County man was killed and his brother injured when a gender reveal device they were building exploded."

It's really depressing that this phrase means anything other than "they were building an ultrasound machine."

geez, the firework store specifically sells gender reveal fountains.  they had 200 and 500 gram ones.
Just pay a few bucks, pick one of those up and you're good to go.

dumbass, but poor kid now has no father.

Here you go:

"Plot twist! The baby from the original gender reveal party is a girl who wears suits," Karvunidis says. "She says 'she' and 'her' and all of that, but you know she really goes outside gender norms."

I didn't want to keep you waiting, so I don't know if anyone else has posted.

Imagine how much worse this would have been if it had happened at the party itself, or in the car on the way there with the family.

You just know he would have been handing it round, showing off his work, so it is at least a small mercy that he didn't take anyone out with him.

But when all is said and done, a totally avoidable tragedy is still a tragedy.

"I haven't been up to much else, really. I put bombs in a couple of chip shops, but they didn't go off. ( Pause) Because chip shops aren't as well guarded as army barracks. Do I need your advice on planting bombs? ( Pause) I was pissed off, anyways. The fella who makes our bombs, he's fecking useless. I think he does drink. Either they go off before you're ready or they don't go off at all. One thing about the I.R.A. anyways, as much as I hate the bastards, you've got to hand it to them. They make a decent bomb."
