How is it possible that in this day and age a majority of expecting parents hope and pray to be blessed with a baby boy? You know exactly what I’m talking about here, modern couples that cringe at the thought of not having an heir to carry the family name.
I’m very well aware of the prehistoric prejudices that past generations have had about having baby girls, what I’m referring to, is your average young expecting couple one would spot at a mall and never guess that they too are consumed with the obsession of their first born being a boy.
Success! Boys from the first go. The family can sleep better at night knowing that the blood line will live on. Please. This needs to stop. Someone needs to tell these ignorants how stupid they sound and how medieval they come off to the rest of us.
Such tacky mentalities can only mean one thing, daughters are a burden, and they’re going to have to spend all that money raising them only to marry them off to another family. What a losing investment.
I know a 32 year old educated woman that did everything to conceive. She experimented with all sorts of “advanced” reproductive techniques in modern science to become a mother. She had one shot at getting pregnant and this would be it. I admired her dedication until she got pregnant with not one but two babies. This should have been the happiest day of her life right? Until she found out that she would be having two baby girls. Suddenly, she felt unlucky.
We all know this is not an isolated incident. And I’m not judging people who have baby girls and would like to have a boy as well; I’m referring to the people that would much prefer to have boys over girls, the men that pressure the women, the silly women who think they haven’t done their duties “producing” a male and will keep popping out babies until they have the next king of the jungle.
