"Little girl socks or blue building blocks?"
The pink ruffle hegemony, 600,000 aborted girls/year in India, cake-based gender reveal parties...

In our childbirth class at the hospital, there was one half of one couple who did not know the gender of their fetus--the dad knew, and was not telling the mom, even though he was kind of hinting at what it was to any and everybody else. It was the poorest judgment I've ever seen applied to the "do you find out?" decision1 issue--until now.
