Hey, have you talked about your genitals today? Not that there is anything wrong about neither genitals nor talking about them. And yet, many of us don’t feel comfortable discussing them publicly.
In this context it seems a little surprising that we have established a little tradition called gender reveal party!
Besides the fact that the unborn child may at some point not feel too happy about people celebrating their private (!) parts, there are more and more voices reminding us that there is more to gender than genitals!
So, whether you are looking for an alternative or the ultimate way to tell the world what gender your child has, Twitter has some ideas for you.
a gender reveal party but since gender shouldn’t be assigned to anyone it’s a zodiac reveal party like ‘surprise guys i’m having a sagittarius sorry in advance for their emotional meltdowns’

Gender reveal parties, but instead of blowing up something to see blue/pink smoke, at the crucial moment, an Anthropology Professor emerges to give an hourlong lecture on how gender is a social construct while everyone is served rainbow cake

A gender reveal party, but it’s just you and your partner and the ultrasound tech and they tell you the gender and you both leave without burning down the entire west coast.
