Not content with having a new documentary out soon which we revealed recently, Demi Lovato is the news again. She has supported and posted a message to her 100million plus Instagram followers deeming baby gender reveals as transphobic.
The message, originally written by Alok Vaid-Menon, is entitled ‘Why Gender Reveals Are Transphobic’ and goes on to say “It’s both insincere and incorrect to pretend that gender reveal parties are not transphobic. You can’t have your proverbial pink-blue binary cake and eat it too.”
Most of her fans agreed with this stance but some remained divided. Admittedly gender reveal parties are a somewhat new thing but have had to take a back seat in these anti-social times, much to the relief of most people we know.
Frankly they do seem a bit excessive and just another excuse to spend more money and time when surely there’s a baby shower around the corner? Whether or not they are transphobic is another matter. Are they shit? Yes, they are. Are they transphobic? The jury’s still out on that one.
