PSA: Expecting Parents. Stop Doing Gender Reveals!

Nov 11, 2019

I know from this title you guys think that I am going to complain about millennial bull shit. However, that is not why I am here today.

I am here to give all expecting parents the PSA to stop doing gender reveal parties. It’s lame and no one likes them. Husbands and boyfriends get dragged to this garbage by their significant other because the party is “Pinterest” worthy.

Back in the day( not my day, probably Deans day) they didn’t find out what the sex of the baby until it came out.

Don’t get heated at me, I have compiled a list of reasons why gender reveal parties are dangerous and you can make your own decision.

Exhibit A: Running through a wall

I’m also triggered that this specific gender reveal was SPONSORED by Go Properties. SMH.

Exhibit B: The 47,000 acre Arizona Wildfires( 8 million dollars of damages)

Exhibit C: A Plane Crash

Yesterday a small plane crashed doing a gender reveal. Wild I know, you can read the details of that debacle here

This is the damage

If that doesn’t change your mind, check out these top fail moments from gender reveal parties.

I’d also like to point out that in SOME of the gender reveal videos the dad looks real defeated when the smoke is pink. Sorry ladies, I’m not saying having a daughter isn’t the best thing in the world but the initial reactions by the dads are hilarious. Oh you don’t believe me? Well good thing there is video evidence.

Even professional athletes can’t hide their excitement. Gordon Hayward is a great example.

As you can see, gender reveals suck. I look at them the same as I do LeBron James decision to join the Miami heat. It’s an update best for an app notification or text.
