There is a growing and somewhat disturbing trend of something called a Gender Party. Expectant and unknowing parents forward the results of a fetal ultrasound to a baker, who then colors the inside of the cake either pink or blue to reveal the baby’s gender — and it’s as obnoxious as it sounds.
First and foremost — it’s bad enough that an ultrasound technician is the first person to know the sex of your new child. Now a Gender Party offers the information next to the staff of the local bakery. The parents, along with their ‘I knew it all along’ relatives, find out last — ear-piercing shrieking ensues.
And because nothing is sacred anymore — these most private of moments are too easily shared on YouTube. Now, complete strangers will know that you’re having a girl, and your annoying aunts could let us know too that they knew all along. Slice me off a piece of baby gender…
