A more appropriate headline should have said the inventor “thinks” it was a stupid idea.
Liberals always claim republicans are the fascists yet have no problem telling others what to think and feel. Who is this womyn to claim that other parents shouldn’t celebrate the gender of their child? Who is this womyn to proclaim that she is the authority on a perceived “social construct?”
In her awakening, she is now the dangerous one by insisting how other people freely choose to celebrate the upcoming birth of their children.
From NY Post: The mommy blogger who popularized the massive trend of throwing a “gender-reveal party” before a baby’s birth has a reveal of her own.
First off, the blogger, Jenna Karvunidis, says she actually regrets kicking off the trend, which involves parents continually attempting to outdo each other to announce whether they’ll be having a boy or a girl. Her own 2008 reveal involved a cake sliced to reveal pink frosting, signifying that she’d be having a girl.
The trend has literally caught fire, and in some cases put lives at risk. It also spawned the viral “gender reveal lasagna” craze.
But the real danger, the California mom says, is in saddling babies with a social construct before they’re even born: “Who cares what gender the baby is?” she wrote in a now-viral Facebook post. “Assigning focus on gender at birth leaves out so much of their potential and talents that have nothing to do with what’s between their legs.”
The other big reveal was that the daughter she held the gender reveal for is no longer conforming to one at all: “PLOT TWIST,” she wrote, “the world’s first gender-reveal party baby is a girl who wears suits!”
Her 10-year-old now shares dapper looks on her Instagram, @bianca_k_actor.
“I’m glad gender reveal parties brought joy to some people, but that joy has been at the expense of nonbinary and trans people,” Karvunidis, 39, told HuffPost. “Even if you say a problem doesn’t affect ‘me’ personally, we should all have enough humanity to realize we don’t have to cause pain for marginalized people to have joy for ourselves.”
