I'm not usually the kind of person who likes telling others what to do. I generally prefer to be left alone and am happy to extend the same courtesy to others as long as they aren't hurting anybody.
But sometimes things will get so out of control that they not only become hard to ignore, but start to make me feel irresponsible for doing so. And while I probably would never thought I'd say this a few years ago, that has long been true for gender reveal parties.
Yet despite all the horror stories we hear about them, they seem as popular as ever and there's no reason to think we'll see an end to the more destructive ones until that changes.
