Okay, folks. I know this story involves a real person with real emotions and blah, blah, blah, blah, blah. But I’m sorry — not really — this is friggin’ hilarious. And before anyone gets all triggered thinking I’m making fun of a 17-year-old — which I guess in a way I kind of am — I’m more making fun of this kid’s mom who finds what she did for her kid as perfectly normal and not in any way ridiculous.
So apparently…a mom in Ohio threw a gender reveal party…to establish their new gender — and the kid is 17-years-old. Yeah, I know.
The mother, whose name couldn’t fit this situation more even if I wrote this as a piece of fiction, posted a long statement on Facebook along with pictures of the gender reveal party she threw for her daughter who is transitioning to becoming her son.
“We wanted to announce that we got it wrong 17 years ago when we told the world we were having a little girl, and named that child McKenzie,” Love Gwaltney wrote in a Facebook post on Saturday. “So we’d like to introduce you to our SON: Grey.”
Well, isn’t that special? I mean, who am I to say how this kid should live their life? I’m more making fun of the mom for making a spectacle out of it by throwing a gender reveal party for a 17-year-old. The kid is practically an adult. I understand throwing them a birthday party, but a gender reveal party? Come on.
Mother Love also referenced the “bigoted, transphobic trolls” who are attacking her kid.
“Thse [sic] bigoted, transphobic trolls are attacking a 17 year old,” Mother Love wrote. “And shame on you for that. Luckily our children are more woke and less hateful than those leaving negative, hurtful comments.”
Unfortunately for Mother Love, what leftists don’t understand it that “woke” these days doesn’t really have much room for differing opinions, so they typically end up being the angry ones in almost any conversation that doesn’t bend the knee to their way of thinking.
I have nothing against the kid. This is just funny and a new one for most people.
