A neighbor and I were talking about these gender parties people are having. He said they should have a permit process and an inspector signs off on the explosive or flammable to make sure its ok.

Christopher Pekny, a 28-year-old father-to-be from New York, died after a device he was building for his child's gender-reveal party exploded, authorities said.

I think they are stupid. And it it has nothing to do with the explosives.

But the government stepping in sure as shit isn't going to improve anything.

stupid, but I also DGAF if other people want to do it, as long as they only kill themselves in the subsequent explosion if explosives are involved.

Why the fuck would I care about what/how people celebrate?
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:18:26 PM EST
gender reveal parties are pants on head retarded.....but not half as bad as your neighbor wanting to regulate them.

It's an excuse to get together and party.

Stop hating fun.

Yes.
And did you die?

I got to shoot something with my new suppressor attached. It was a great day.

The kid, he's pretty good too.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:26:58 PM EST
Yes.  I wont go to them when invited.

Millennials can invent whatever holidays they want.  Just don't expect everyone else to be as excited about your made up holiday as you are.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:27:41 PM EST
I really don’t care what other people choose to celebrate.

Your neighbor is a statist moron.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:28:06 PM EST
They are dumb.

For both of our kids, our gender reveal party was at the hospital when the kid(s) popped out.  We found out at the same time as everyone else.

We had my son eat a cupcake with pink filling to announce to our family we were having a girl.

Thats about the extent for our last kid.

My SIL wanted us to do more. I said no. Everyone but her was happy
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:30:54 PM EST
They're dumb but not as dumb as a bunch of other things people do. But I wouldn't go to one.

I went to one. My cousin.  He wanted a boy and his wife wanted a girl.     Turned out to be a boy.   My wife was with my cousins wife when it was announced.
SHe went inside and and started crying.  My cousin was outside high fiving his buddies.    What a shit idea for a party.  I am pretty sure that "FREINDS" are the ones who set shit like this up.

Cisgendered scum assuming the gender of the baby before it is old enough to reveal it's gender his/her/their self.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:33:00 PM EST
I don’t care.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:33:12 PM EST
People have an inflated sense of self worth.  Share it with your family.  Why have a party or even worse post it on social media.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:33:51 PM EST
We just called everyone and told them we were having a girl.

Its so dumb rofl

Back in the day, you'd tell your mom.  Maybe a friend.  Word got around.

Nobody ever made a list of 20 friends and started going down the call list:

"Hello?"

"Hi, it's Becky and Tom.  Guess what?  It's a GIRL!"

"oooooooooooookay? "

Then imagine doing that 19 more times for all your other friends.

Literally nobody but your family and MAYBE best friend cares.

Both of our kids genders were revealed when they fell out of my wife's crotch.  Not gonna throw that kind of party.

Yes they are stupid. But not nearly as stupid as wearing a mask

I am against children, in general.

But if there is free booze at the party, sure, I'll go.

I largely don't give a fuck what color the explosion will be... but I am for American's being free to set off explosives on their own property for any reason without interference by the state!

2/3 of my kids had their gender reveal at birth.  
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:39:59 PM EST
Please see the first post.  I hope the offspring who, while genderized, is smarter than the father.

Gender reveal parties are one of many symptoms of Social Confirmation Disease.

Another one that seems to be common for people in their 40's is to post pics of whatever alcohol they're drinking.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:44:46 PM EST
How can you have a gender reveal party? Doesn't the child have to self identify? How can the parents pick a gender for thier kid?

This seems bigoted.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:47:39 PM EST
It's stupid, but people have all sorts of stupid reasons to get together and have a party.

What's really stupid is rather than the 'reveal' being uncovering a cake that says 'It's a boy!' or hiring a band, or a sky-writer, or a piata filled with a specific color of candy - the trend is to create an explosive device that throws confetti...and starts forest fires, and now kills people.

Don't know never been to one. Will never go to one. Baby showers are for getting women out of my hair so I can have peace and quiet.

“Gender reveal” is a problematic celebration of the heteronormative patriarchy.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 6:50:52 PM EST
I think they are stupid. Other people dont.
If I get invited to one, I hope there is food and drink.

Not anymore!  Millennials have changed the rules to require husbands to attend.

About as stupid as push presents.

It's surprising that people of that mindset even have sex , let alone reproduce.

Pretty soon adults will have then when they decide to pick a new gender

Leaving the basement and not being a total hard ass by the looks of some other replies.

I voted yes because I thought we weren't assigning gender anymore.  This is all so confusing.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 7:06:58 PM EST
But “we’re pregnant.” I want to  smack every man who says that.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 7:08:06 PM EST
It's only stupid when they blow shit up and kill party attendees with flying shrapnel.

Yes they are dumb as shit. It’s peak “look at me, look at me” narcissistic behavior.

Darwin has taken notice and at times worked its magic. Has that slowed down or stopped the retardedness? Nope.

When they kill people I guess so....but I voted no.

my son's first four years I had keg party/bbq parties.

Your friend needs to grow some balls and not need a phony excuse to have people over whenever he feels like it.
