Consistently good

I appreciate how consistent and reliable the podcast is - well-edited and produced with good structure! Comforting chats among pals to listen to with a range of fun topics around existing and thriving. Solid interviews with good lessons to learn!

Inviting you to reconsider

I was floored by the discussion on “gender reveal parties.” This seems like a social media construction to me but underlying all of this seems to be a absolutist disdain for openly acknowledging the widespread desire to know the sex of one’s baby - or to even acknowledge that sex identification is something that matters. I noticed y’all conflated sex and gender, too. I am not sure if your views on this extend to new mothers informing their friends and family once they’ve learned the sex of their baby? Is it just about cakes and colors? What gets me about this whole discussion is how ridiculously US-centric it is. So many of us have families in other countries and cultures where the sex of the baby is actually very much the business of the family - and there is much joy and cultural/religious rationale and context for this sort of information to be shared and not kept to ourselves in fear or offending someone.

Your views on this seem incredibly narrow. And to anyone who needs to hear it: don’t feel bad about wanting to know and share the sex of your baby. Especially if you’ve been waiting a long time to have a kid or have dealt with miscarriages and loss.

This is a weird cultural moment when everyone is sort of parroting the same talking points about gender without thinking very deeply about them. We can have divergent views on these things and respect each other’s choices and values. So to use Doree’s phrase: I invite you to reconsider this and consider the cultural diversity of your listeners and perhaps open your minds to the world beyond engineered social media debates.

This podcast has been bothering me for a while and I couldn’t put my finger on it - but I won’t be listening anymore.
