“Am I Wrong For Walking Out Of The Baby Shower My In-Laws Threw For Me?”
A Gallup poll revealed that 54% of American men between the ages of 18 and 49 would prefer a boy. Knowing the gains women have made in education, suffrage and business, rooting for one gender is deeply problematic. And as it turns out, sometimes it’s the in-laws who’re rooting for one gender for a mom at an ultrasound appointment.
This twisted story comes from a 27-year-old woman who’s expecting her first baby. While the pressure from her in-laws about having a boy was building up, the doctor’s appointment came and it turned out to be a girl.
First it was her husband who broke down crying in the car and couldn’t break the news to his parents right away. Then, it was the in-laws who ghosted her for days and “then started coming over and visiting, constantly referring to my daughter as my son, claiming the results were false and basically pretending it’s a boy.”
Scroll down through this one hell of a family drama that involves the legacy of a deceased grandpa, baby shower for an imaginary child and whatnot. Let us know your thoughts in the comments!
