We are living in a dystopian society, and celebrating the birth of another human being who is destined to consume precious natural resources, destroy natural habitats of wildlife, and generally contribute to the existential dread that is life as we know it is patently ridiculous.
Our little blue planet is overpopulated, and we should celebrate death and not life. I refuse to attend any baby shower, rewarding parents with gifts for their selfishness in bringing another baby into this horrible world is insanity.
Baby showers are anathema and gender reveal parties are just as bad.
“A gender-reveal party is an event or celebration had during pregnancy. The primary goal of this event is the eponymous reveal of the fetal sex to the expecting parents, family, and friends.”
A fire in California that has torched more than 7,000 acres was caused by a pyrotechnic device used at a gender reveal party. Fireworks that burn pink indicate that the unborn baby is female and blue fireworks denote the impending arrival of a male child.
This news story isn’t an aberration, there have been many instances of gender-reveals causing injury and even death and large-scale destruction.
Why do parents make a freaking Hollywood production about revealing the sex of their baby? What difference does it make if the baby has a penis or a vagina? Gender reveal parties reinforce gender stereotypes, and regardless if the baby is a male or a female it’s destined to pollute mother Earth.
The witless parents should be prosecuted for starting a fire due to their vanity, negligence and illegal activity.
And you wonder why I’m a misanthrope?
