    Here's One More Reason To Hate Gender Reveal Parties, If You Didn't Already Hate Them Enough

    It's not hard to clean up, people.

    If you're a living thing either over 12 or under negative 3 months, chances are you're familiar with gender reveal parties.

    You know what I'm talking about β€” the ones where you do some nonsense like remotely detonate an old Model T or get hit in the head with a gendered sewer grate and find out the sex of an unborn baby.

    And if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that having a gender reveal party has recently become a bit more like my middle school wardrobe. Folks, it is (a) Hot Topic.

    But let's talk about one thing in particular:


    Like, come on. This is ridiculous.

    How are you going to bring a baby into the world when you treat the world like this?

    Do you really need to do this in public and ruin the park for everyone else?

    Do you really need to use PLASTIC confetti?

    Is it really so hard to find a garbage can?

    It's ridiculous.

    Why can't you just fire that sex reveal right into the garbage?

    Aren't there enough people at the reveal to take care of the trash?

    Like, you're telling me your entire family can't bend over for a few minutes?


    Clean up after yourself, ya slobs.

    And don't make someone else take care of your gross garbage.

    Do what you want, just don't be a trash-monger about it.
