Things Went South Real Quick At This Botched Gender Reveal Party

Things Went South Real Quick At This Botched Gender Reveal Party

I could go on and on about why “Gender Reveal Parties” shouldn’t be a thing. Between not allowing your baby to identify as whichever gender they please (kidding, but only kind of because I can’t believe no one has complained about this in 2016) and adding another party to an already busy schedule of showers, gender reveals just seem like an unnecessary cog in late-twenties life. Don’t get me wrong, I’ll come to your house and drink on your tab, but I just think it makes more sense for you to keep this moment between you and yours.

Another example of why these parties should never occur is this video of a botched reveal which leaves the pregnant wife looking mortified at what panned out. Apparently the balloon shop mixed up the balloons, and well, see for yourself.

This is either a very elaborate way for their son or daughter to come out as gay or the balloon shop thought, “These gender reveals are so stupid – let’s mess with them.” Either way, it’s pretty difficult to feel bad for the couple given how sensationalized these parties are in the first place, but who am I to judge? There’s a 75 percent chance my future wife will make me have one of these so I can’t really point fingers.
