Surely this will be the very dumb thing that ends gender reveal stunts forever.

Ah yes, let's start an immediate investigation on one waterfall that had its water dyed temporarily while we let our government get away with destroying the rainforest.

I dressed appropriately for a gender reveal party and they called the cops on me.

I'm old fashioned and come from a time where a telephone was a thing tethered to the wall with an electric cord.

I'm pretty sure people simply used the aforementioned device to "call" others and tell them the news.

It seems that with the advent of mobile (no wall needed) telephones this has become a near-impossibility and much more elaborate schemes are now necessary to convey the information.

Ha come on, a family started a wild fire and a firefighter died fighting it cause of their gender reveal party and well this still happened.

"Shut up, I'm talking long distance."

Maybe people are prone to circumlocution now that not getting to the point doesn't cost them money.

If I were planning one of these events I'd stick to something less ostentatious, maybe a 20 foot tall penis spurting blue confetti.

I suppose a Gender Reveal really needs to be done in person. Hard to add the right flourish on the phone. Maybe if we rename it to Gender Text Messaging then things will calm down.

And the crap you dumped in the river didn't help either.

Fun fact. The river of The Jungle Cruise ride at Disney is dyed. It's done to make the water murky enough you don't see the working mounted in the channel. The dye is dumped in at the Schwitzer Falls part of the ride. So about once a month or so, openers get to see The Backside of Brown Water.

You've heard about it. You've read about it. Your friends and neighbors all rave about it. You've waited your whole life to see it. You'll constantly dream about it once you go home.

Ladies and gentlemen, I proudly present: THE BACK SIDE OF WATER!!!!!

When the day comes that I get the Brazilian government on my ass for environmental crimes, of all people, I will know I have truly made a name for myself. In the meantime, back to dumping used cooking oil down the municipal storm sewer system.

Look at you, throwing away all that free money. Even if you don't care about the environmental benefits of bio diesel, it's free fuel man.

Just make it legal for people to shoot up gender reveal parties with paintball guns. You will quickly see a drop in the number of gender reveal parties.

Also, funny story, A now-former friend invited me to her gender reveal party, even though she knew I hated them. When I declined she got very upset with me and she got into an argument with me, saying how I was a horrible friend for not caring (I did care, I just did not care about the reveal party) and a whole bunch of nonsense. I finally got pissed off and said to her, "I already know it is a boy" and she then got super pissed and demanded how I knew. I just laughed and walked away. The funny part is I did not know, I just took a guess, but either I was right or her reaction at my being wrong would tell me I was wrong. Yeah, I may have been a bit mean with that bit but she really pissed me off. Oh well, such is life.

What a joke.  Thousands of acres of forest have been destroyed along with native people's under Bolsanaro's reign.  He openly cheers for this shiat.

Well, back when we were mad our parents wouldn't pay extra for push buttons on the phone so we could never win radio prizes when you had to be the first caller, not that we are bitter about that still,

No one knew the sex ahead of time, anyway.

Technically there would be male "gender everywhere" as ganders are specifically male geese.  But in the chaos I wouldn't expect anybody who didn't hunt waterfowl or study them to notice the specific difference in all the geese.

/being the 21st century, when are we going to have "gender retraction parties"
//surely some of the "gender revealed" kids have discovered themselves to be different from their birth genders
///the oldest may have started puberty (or not, thanks to the drugs needed by those wanting a retraction)

First person to sell something titled Gender Fluid in a NAPA Auto parts store and make billions off of ignorant shotgun-wedding-fathers-to-be, all I ask for is that you remember this post and raise a toast to it once in a while from your no-shame sky mansion.

I was at the doctors today, and they were advertising (yes) a DNA test to reveal the sex.  Because waiting until the fourth month or whenever isn't soon enough.  You barely have time to have your gender reveal party, have your baby shower, remodel your house, get your Baby Mozart classes started, do Lamaze classes, have six ultrasounds, have another baby shower, and buy your entire gender-colored baby bedroom set.

And that's if you wanted to go all out.
Who gets that farking excited?
When my best friend found out the sex, this was the exchange:
Her: Found out what it is.
Me: And?
Her: a girl.
Me: cool.

Why do people make such a big deal?

I used to dial all but the last digit, but it took so long for that 0 or 9 to cycle (why the fark was it never a 1 or 2?)
that I never won a thing.

Yep.

At some point they started making it the 4th caller or 9th caller or whatever, but those kids with fancy push button phones were one up on us for a long time.

It might have something to do with contaminating the water supply for a drought stricken town. That tends to upset people a smidge.
