So I'm in that age bracket where half my friends are shooting out kids and the other half are drunk in a gutter, and I keep seeing stuff popping up in my Facebook about people having gender reveal parties.

To me these seem like a total white trash wankfest, but am I wrong?

So, thoughts?

Also, "gender is a social construct" arguments to stir the pot will result in all your threads getting wikihow macro'd

I couldn't give two shits about the gender side of things, I'm just curious as to why people need to have a party to celebrate it

I'm sure its a recent phenomenon, I don't recall seeing gender reveal parties being a thing until only a few years ago, now it seems to be the done thing.

Because people want that 'look at me, look at us, we're special, give me attention'

Having a child with certain genitalia isn't an accomplishment in itself, people

Tbh, they're probably the same people that circle jerk over Beyonce and say "Yaaaassss" and love brunch

I really don't know what that is and have never heard it before in my life but I also really don't care.

If KFC is finger-licking good, then people would probably suck dicks for Popeyes. That's how good it is.

I'd steal from all genders equally.

Apparently its a big deal to cut a cake in front of your friends which is either coloured blue or pink accordingly, and then rave about how edgy you are before making plans to go antiquing the following weekend.

If the parties involve nothing more than eating and drinking a lot, great. Otherwise, stupid.

From what I can gather, there's a lot of that, but apparently its now become a huge event akin to winning an Oscar to have some big dramatic flourish to reveal if your baby has a penis or a va-jay-jay

Query - since this is ostensibly a party being thrown for someone who is stark raving preggers, why cocktails?

Also, when will it become a thing to accidentally cut the wrong colour cake at said event?

For all of the mother-to-be's childless friends so they can forget about how empty and meaningless their lives are, because life's really about having kids

So they just flash you a baby dick/baby puss, and people have to go "woah, I wasn't expecting that!" or something?

I'm all for a party, but wtf?

EDIT: Oh, this is before the thing's born?
Tiger got to hunt, bird got to fly; man got to sit and wonder, 'Why, why, why?'
Tiger got to sleep, bird got to land; man got to tell himself he understand.

Pretty sure I saw an article where the parents cut open a rainbow coloured cake because they wanted to show how much oxygen they waste

Did the baby end up with some fucking weird gender-neutral name that makes them sound like Ikea furniture?

Not to be above it all on a guitar forum but yeah. Although I don't really see a problem with the occasion so much as its methods of celebration. Telling your kid what to think or what colors to wear before they're born


Though to be fair parents should get to be as happy as possible they're having a child (and to deploy their own parenting method), and to celebrate that publicly, without some sour chumps going "I'm so much better than this" like this whole thread is basically. Find new friends if all you're looking for is regurgitation of meme and congratulatory self-masturbation for detachment rather than adults growing up and being proud of their spawn like you're a living Bill Hicks routine.

When I first heard about this (8 seconds before opening this thread) I thought this was about trans people coming out of the closet and thought "Yeah I can see this happening"

However upon realising this was about unborn children, I promptly changed that position, knowing that this was far more trivial and narcissistic.
I would show up in full drag if ever forced to go to one as an insensitivity (and also so I could be a 'pretty' girl for once

Do these parties come with teaser trailers to build up anticipation for the main event?

I thought this was a pretty common thing since like for forever. Once you find out what your kid is gonna be you have a big party and celebrate it. Usually it's just incorporated into the baby shower so that the people giving gifts know what clothes and stuff to give.

This is not a common thing, at least, not among people I know.

The suggestion is usually greeted with "do you seriously think we have time for this bullshit?"

If my baby was some superior, post-human freak of nature that would almost certainly conquer us all, then I'd throw a party in honour of our future galactic emperor.

If it was just a normal kid, fuck off. I'd raise funds to buy the shitty touchscreen it would raise itself on and get on with my life.
It didn't take long to realise
The safest place was not her arms, but her eyes
Where she can't see you
For her gaze, it blisters;
Grey skin to cinders
