I guess that baby is not going to see it's parents for some time. The only surprise you can have in life and people have to ruin it by doing these silly gender reveals.

I would love to hear from anyone who has been invited to a gender reveal. Did you want to go? Did you tell anyone in your life “I can’t wait to see a poof of colour in person rather than hearing a word over the phone”? Did you mind giving up a hard-earned Saturday?

We hear more & more mishaps, what happened to hoping the baby is just healthy no matter the sex?!?! Or better yet call your mom or that Aunt that can't keep there mouths shut & request a small gift for the boy or girl!!!!

Is this 3 or 4 wildfires started in the last year by gender reveals? Asinine obsession with binary physical baby genders are adding to a climate apocalypse already in progress. What happened to cake? Cake is great, you can colour the inside, reveal with a fork, & no one dies.

It's unfortunate as to how much damage was done. Homes destroyed, resources spent to relocate due to evacuations and many injured. Condolences to the family of the firefighter. Hopefully other people can learn from their mistakes and not repeat it

What are these gender reveals that are causing massive forest fires. I've seen cakes and exploding golf balls. What are they doing now?

These gender reveals are embarrassing & now deadly, you’re not the first nor the last to have a f*ckin baby just ask your doc like they did in the old days or wait until the kid is born and reveal like a normal person.
