awfully damn presumptuous of the bio-parents to presume what sex a gender fluid child might choose to be...or change their mind later and change

Why not have a party and blow up some pink and blue shit. And then have another random party too?

Hell, you don't even have to be having a baby.

Parties are fun.

ARFCOM hates seeing people have fun.

I had a lot of people at mine. Friends and family  I smoked a brisket, ribs, pulled pork, beans, cheesy potatoes. Had a full size keg of busch light, pony keg of local IPA, I don't even know howany bottles of wine. 10lbs of tannerite. It was an incredible time for everyone.

Because gender reveal parties are making it about the gender of your spawn.  Oh, and bring us gifts and shower us with lots of attention because our mommy and daddy didn't give us enough.

Invite me over any other time.  Don't expect me to bring you shit, and I'll bring my own beer.  I'll show up nearly every time.

I think they are dumb but I don't tell people how to live their lives. So don't tell me.
They used to be called baby showers now they changed so the husband/baby daddy have to attend.
No more free day with the guys while the wimminz do wimmin folk crap.

Just more stupidity started by millennials. And fidget spinners, don't forget them.

The implication being that anyone else gives a fuck about what is in your kid's danger zone.

I almost want children so I can NOT have a party

Gen X here. Gender reveal parties are ghey as hell and don’t have anything on the parties of the 80’s.

It’s the whole “look at us! Look at me” crap that makes them cringeworthy. Like a real life tik tok or Instagram video created for likes.

This but meh if other people want them. Our kids are 18 and 16. Wife’s obgyn said it was rare then. I can’t imagine it’s gotten more common. It seamed to us. Birth is when you are supposed to find out.

They are beyond stupid but if it tickles your pickle and it doesn't involve me or mine then go explode yourself

Dumb, but for a different reason.

If you reveal the sex, you get clothes, which the baby will outgrow in weeks.

If you don't reveal the sex, you get equipment and such, which will last longer.

Tip for baby gifts: buy clothes at size 9 to 12 months.  That way, your friend has some new clothes for the baby after all the showers and parties and such are over.

(I'm all for explosions and fun.)

They’re not my favorite thing, but women seem to enjoy them.  It doesn’t kill me to go to one and a couple of hours seems to make the women happy.

Sample size of two millennial couples I know says the gender reveal thing is narcissistic attention whoring for idiots who post their lives on social media.
Link Posted: 2/22/2021 9:39:04 PM EST
Yes, they are. But, I have fucked some fine ass girls after going to three or four.

They're for women, just make it part of the baby shower.

This. It's just an excuse to get a group of people together to celebrate something positive in someone's life.

Real men make their OWN rules. No one will be "requiring" my presence at anything...except my funeral. I think I'll probably have to show up for that one.

Sure.   Once we have laws dictating every minute mundane detail of every day life we'll finally be safe.  

It sounds wonderful.
Link Posted: 2/23/2021 8:16:08 AM EST
Pet peeve of mine.  A 400 year-old use of a word gets dusted off by sociologists to mean things other than sex (not only sexual identity but also role in society--like merchants and craftsmen in a warrior society).  Then prudes turn around and use it as a replacement for the word sex.  Grr.

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

"oooooooooooookay? "

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

Literally nobody but your family and MAYBE best friend cares.
