"Your Baby Gender Reveal Party Is Probably Scarring Your Child, Say Feminists"

Via Instapundit:  Cosmopolitan, the magazine that is so entrenched in hetero-normative standards, its current issue contains no fewer than four articles about how to please your man during heterosexual intercourse, wants you to know that revealing your baby’s gender before he or she is born will probably corrupt them for life.

In the wokest of woke takes, Cosmo‘s resident radical feminist reveals that baby showers, which, recently, have come to involve complex “gender reveals” where couples cut into cakes or release balloons to find out what binary sex their precious little one will be saddled with at birth, are “potentially damaging.”

Not only is Cosmo‘s crack reporter “uncomfortable” with celebrating a fetus’s “gestational markers,” but she’s very concerned that “gender-reveal” parties don’t actually reveal a baby’s gender. They reveal what genitalia the babies will be born with, which may or may not correspond to the gender they feel they are a bit down the line.

By shoehorning a newborn into either a “male” or “female” box—and worse, still, associating them with the hetero-normative colors “blue” and “pink”—expectant parents are, quite literally, Hitler.
No, we’re not joking, apparently, Hitler began associating pink with “feminine” characteristics, and so by assigning pink to a female (or a particularly effeminate male), you are basically saying you’re exactly like the mastermind behind the Third Reich. Actually probably worse, because Hitler was vegan.

Cosmo was always weird, but this gets into Rod Serling territory.

PS The Crow Indians, reputed by some to be the best beaders in the West, used pink as their main background color. And they fought the Sioux to a standstill.

So the psycho from Cosmo can go with that.

blah blah blah "FEminists" - I tune it out. Feminists are opposite world. Do the opposite of what they say, and everything will be alright.

When I was a kid, my mother explained to me that my aunt (her sister) had the first child, but she (my mother) had the first boy which meant that she was the winner.

I was pretty young at the time but I definitely remember thinking that the whole thing was kind of fucked up, although I wouldn't have used those words.
