So-called experts are appalled at gender-reveal parties for THIS very predictable reason

Gender-reveal parties are all the rage. If you're not familiar with these, you might be thinking it's a big celebration where a person announces their true gender to family and friends. Where everyone eats cake and toasts the person's pending sex-change surgery to become who he or she really is.

No, a gender-reveal party is one in which parents discover the sex of their unborn baby. Most of these parties include an element of surprise for the parents, family and friends in attendance, as they find out for the first time whether they're having a girl or a boy.

Gender-reveal parties are a booming industry. Fueled by social media, expecting parents now must one-up each other in the attention-grabbing way they announce their baby's gender. Event planners in Washington, DC are seeing gender-reveal parties that cost up to $25,000. Just last week, a couple in Maryland arranged for a Ferris wheel to light up the color of their baby's sex – it was pink, for a girl.

But as the Washington Post reported yesterday, some "experts" are appalled at this gender-reveal party trend. I think the experts are on to something – I mean how can modern parents be so narrow-minded to think that they can actually identify their child's gender? Isn't the modern parent's job to be as gender-neutral as possible so you don't unfairly tip the gender balance one way or another for your child?

At least have the decency to wait until it's four or five years old, you know, old enough to decide for itself whether it's a boy or girl. What are we, cave people? To think that we can know if someone's a boy or girl just because we have fancy medical technology. Crazy.

As the Post likes to remind us – democracy may die in darkness, but not as fast as common sense dies in progressivism.

These gender-reveal parties are grotesque. If playing Mozart for a baby while it's in the womb makes it smarter, can you imagine the brainwashing it undergoes when it hears mom and dad talking about which gender it is?

In highlighting this gender-reveal party controversy, the Washington Post also referred to unborn babies throughout the piece as babies. You would expect more from a progressive media outlet like this. Don't they remember the hard and fast rule that humans in the womb aren't babies with a specific gender? They're fetuses. Where's the consistency?

As the Post likes to remind us – democracy may die in darkness, but not as fast as common sense dies in progressivism.

Megyn Kelly pulled her sons out of the private elementary school they attended after she learned that the boys were asked "weekly" if they were still sure they were boys. But that's not all that this "experimental transgender education program" taught.

Megyn joined Glenn Beck on the radio program to tell the story, which she thought had ended when the school apologized, and to talk about what's next for America as our leaders refuse to promote actual psychological support for our kids and instead "parade" transgenderism as the solution to their problems.

"When [my son] was in third grade, I found out they unleashed a three-week experimental transgender education program on these boys, with really inappropriate videos. The kids were confused. These are 8- and 9-year-olds, Glenn. They have no idea what the school is even talking about with the trans thing. They got really in-depth, with really in-your-face videos — and then parents complained. And the school did something it hasn't done in its 400-year history, which was they apologized. Even they realized they had done wrong," Megyn explained.

"But, then I said to my son a year later, so did they ever round back to the trans thing? Like, whatever happened with it? And he said ... they bring it up every week. ... [They ask] how many people here still feel confident that they're a boy? Do you still feel sure you're a boy?" she continued. "This is not support. This is not nonbullying. This is indoctrination. And it's deeply confusing to the children, and wrong."

Megyn went on to give examples of how she's seen trans ideology turn "support, nonbullying, kindness, friendship, allyship, on its head."

"The absolute surrender of the medical community to this insanity is a scourge on this nation. It's disgusting what is happening with our doctors," she added. "There are people who are legitimately transgender, or who have gender dysphoria. And for those people, we should be supportive and they should get the care that they need. But what we've done instead, is taken everyone who expresses any kind of gender confusion and said, you're trans. You're trans. And we have our psychiatrists doing this."

"It's crazy," Megyn asserted. "The fact that we're doing this so willy-nilly in the name of allyship and support, it's abusive. It's criminal."

"Never forget" is not only a tribute to those we've lost, it's a warning that it could happen AGAIN. On "Glenn TV" Wednesday, Glenn Beck looks back 20 years ago to the modern generation's Pearl Harbor moment. A day of infamy we're STILL feeling repercussions from.

But in remembering 9/11, we need to look toward the future because the Biden administration is setting us up for the NEXT 9/11. They bungled the Afghanistan withdrawal, and now we have video of top al Qaeda commanders — who served with Osama bin Laden — returning to the country. But could America survive another terror attack?

Glenn asks former NYC Mayor Rudy Giuliani, the leader who brought America back from the brink. He tells Glenn about the moment he learned the Twin Towers were struck, the actions he took to prevent more terrorism, and if he thinks NYC could survive another attack under Mayor de Blasio's leadership.

Glenn is also joined by Rev. Johnnie Moore, author of "The Next Jihad." He warns that Biden's policies in the Middle East are Obama 2.0, and "if you thought ISIS was bad, you haven't seen anything yet. We must keep our eyes on Iran."

Glenn Beck and The Nazarene Fund have been working tirelessly to evacuate Americans and our allies from Afghanistan, thanks to the U.S. government's failure to do so. But it's been far from easy. A recent Newsweek article, titled "Taliban Holds Up Glenn Beck Group's Planes," addressed some of the most recent challenges. The article claimed that six planes — filled with Americans and SIVs ready for takeoff — were "grounded by the Taliban amid negotiations with the U.S. State Department." So, what's actually going on? Why is the State Department meddling in the rescue? And what are the next steps to get these Americans home?
