Not even considering a few gender reveal parties that have caused death and destruction, the entire custom is suspect. To be honest, no one outside the family cares whether your baby will be born a boy or a girl. Even inside the family, the importance of a baby’s sex implies that one is preferable to the other, which can leave scars when someone’s disappointment is seen in the video years later. If it’s just an excuse to throw a party, there’s nothing wrong with that, but there has been a tendency to make a big production out of the reveal in order to score internet points.
