Isn’t It Cute?

Smug Alert!

The baby is, but the parents are definitely not.

This kind of nonsense really does nothing for anything or anyone.  There is a ton of absurdity out there.  This is just more of it.  Can we put our collective energies into something more productive than this.  This being the concept that not telling people the gender of your 4-month old infant will somehow improve its life.

I’m not even going to bother railing about everything that I find foolish about this.  You can figure it out for yourselves, I’m sure.

Read it and weep for the future of the smug, weirdo children we are creating.

When many couples have a baby, they send out an email to family and friends that fills them in on the key details: name, gender, birth weight, that sort of thing. (You know the drill: “Both Mom and little Ethan are doing great!”)

But the email sent recently by Kathy Witterick and David Stocker of Toronto, Canada to announce the birth of their baby, Storm, was missing one important piece of information. “We’ve decided not to share Storm’s sex for now–a tribute to freedom and choice in place of limitation, a stand up to what the world could become in Storm’s lifetime (a more progressive place? …),” it said.

Fucking people.  I swear (and I do.  I swear a metric fucking ton).
