Trevor Noah, host of Comedy Central’s “The Daily Show,” is calling out gender reveal parties for being “very outdated,” arguing children’s sexes shouldn’t be celebrated until they are old enough “to know their actual gender.”
The comedian shared his anti-scientific thoughts after it was reported that a “smoke-generating pyrotechnic device” used during a gender reveal party in San Bernardino County, California, sparked a wildfire over the weekend.
“Aside from all the damage it can cause, celebrating a baby’s genitalia is starting to feel very outdated,” said Noah. “Like, given everything we’re learning about gender, gender reveal parties should only happen when the child is old enough to know their actual gender.”
Noah’s comments come as the pro-transgender agenda is continuing to move ahead.
Last week, the London branch of the TED Talks initiative decided to change the correct spellings of “woman” and “women” to “womxn” because the original lettering excludes non-“cisgendered” people, referring to those who identify with their biological sex.
“‘Womxn’ is a spelling of ‘women’ that’s more inclusive and progressive,” read an explanation from TEDxLondon. “The term sheds light on the prejudice, discrimination, and institutional barriers womxn have faced, and explicitly includes non-cisgender women.”
CBS also announced late last week its sci-fi series “Star Trek: Discovery” is slated to introduce its first transgender and non-binary characters in October. One of the show’s producers said the series has “always made a mission of giving visibility to underrepresented communities.”
