Demi Lovato calls out gender reveal parties for being transphobic

Demi Lovato has slammed gender reveal parties, branding them ‘transphobic’ on social media.

The actress-singer took aim at the rising trend of families and friends gathering to reveal a baby’s gender, often with an explosion of pink or blue glitter or balloons, saying it’s ‘insincere’ to not see these parties as excluding trans people. In a nine-page post on Instagram titled ‘Why Gender Reveals Are Transphobic’, originally penned by Alok Vaid-Menon, the 28-year-old encouraged her followers to share the information.

It reads, ‘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. This is not about political correctness, it’s just… correct. We condemn gender reveals not because of our identity, but because of reality.’

The post continues, ‘Transphobia is not just about prejudice against individual trans people, it’s also a way of thinking that understands non-trans people as more natural/organic and erases everyone else. These ideas, like the gender binary, fuel mistreatment of all people, but especially trans and gender non-conforming people.’

The post adds, ‘Gender reveals require not just the invalidation of transness, but the impossibility of transness. The assumption is that the baby is cis. Cisness is positioned as the default and everyone else is understood as derivative of it.’

gender reveal parties are dumb but they really arent that big of a deal. Its literally just parents revealing if they are having a boy or a girl, it doesnt mean that, if LATER on, those kids  turn out to be trans, that the parents wont accept them or will be denied  of their identity dead1 the reality is that most parents dont expect to have a trans/gay/lgbt offspring... if it happens, it happens, but its not what is expected right off the bat awk1 

 

shes such an insufferable person awk1

As someone who has had two strokes in their lifetime, I do find the comment(s) you've made a tad bit insensitive.
Shit is not one to try and make light and fun of, whether on a pop forum or not.

It's very easy to call and claim anything as homophobic, transphobic, etc. these days, but by claiming that gender reveal parties should be abolished because it's transphobic is simply an act of insincerity within itself. You're completely ignoring and rejecting the dynamics of all sexual beings by excluding the inherent quality of heterosexuality. That's not inclusive at all, that's just people like Demi being mean and shady. Like Gilly stated:

Yes, heterosexuals being CAN BE homophobic and transphobic, but it doesn't mean that all of them are. Plenty of heterosexuals and binary people accept changes and progressions. Also, it's not entirely healthy to let kids be "who they want to be" when some kids literally dreamt of destroying the worlds because of, idk, imagination? But there are kids who are also wiser than the others, and even become prodigy in many fields. Humanity is complex; by denying binary system you're not trying to co-exist in harmony with one another, instead you want to dismantle it because your suffering has to be put above everybody else's. That's a problem, y'know.
