The Heartbreaking Decision: Love or Equality? 💔

In a shocking turn of events, the woman decided to break up with her boyfriend after he confessed he'd love a son more than a daughter. Although heartbroken, she stood her ground, refusing to have children with someone who doesn't see her or their potential kids as equals because of gender. Despite receiving nasty messages for her decision, she remains firm in her beliefs. As she moves on, she hopes her ex will learn to change his sexist mindset and become a better man for someone else. What do you think about this situation? Let's see what the internet has to say... 💬
