A mother has been criticized online after refusing to attend a sex reveal party for her daughter’s lizard, calling it “ridiculous”.
She came Reddit‘S Forum Am I The A ** popular hole, where she explains the whole situation, under the username ApperinsiveFix3425, revealing that her daughter does not have and does not want children.
The mother claims she “supports” the decision and says her daughter bought a blue-tongued lizard, which she jokes is “her daughter.”
ApperinsiveFix3425 wrote: “I find it odd but she says it’s because it’s the closest thing she has to a child and she feels a strong emotional bond similar to a child. child.”
After taking the skink to the vet, she found out its gender, so decided to throw a reveal party, saying her daughter had said it was “mostly a joke” and an excuse to meet up with some friends.
But single mother unimpressed and declined the invitation, despite not seeing her daughter for three months, she said: “She’s just a lizard and I’m a busy person.”
Her daughter called her, but she wasn’t upset she didn’t show up, with the post ApperinsiveFix3425: “I told her she really can’t expect me to reveal the sex of a lizard lizard.
“She said it wasn’t a gender reveal, it was just a joke and it was really just a little gathering to chat with people.
“I told her if that was the case she should call it a gathering because I wouldn’t reveal the gender unless it was for a real grown daughter.”
That worried her, as her daughter accused her of not being supportive of her life choices.
She continued: “I told her she couldn’t expect me to treat a lizard like a big daughter, she said she didn’t expect me either but obviously I don’t. respect her relationship with lizards and her decisions, and she just wanted to see me and the reason I came was a painful one.
“I told her she was being ridiculous in front of a lizard, she insisted it wasn’t because of the lizard and it was a gathering and not even gathering around the lizard. , but I still followed what I was told. It’s ridiculous to reveal the sex of a lizard.”
Since being posted on Tuesday, the post has garnered more than 16,000 upvotes, as the mother added an update to clarify a few points.
She confirmed the lizard was a girl, known as Ellie, adding: “My problem is she said the party was a sex reveal, if she calls it just a party then I But calling it a sex reveal makes it sound like it’s for the lizard, and I wouldn’t do it even if it were a ‘joke.’ “
Although she claims, while supporting her daughter decided not to have children, she admitted to expressing “slight frustration”.
“I just don’t want to go to a party with a lizard, and if it’s not a lizard, she should call it a party instead of a gender reveal,” she added.
In the comments, she suggested that her daughter seemed to have lost her mind, saying: “She bought a cake that said ‘It’s a girl’ and added another glittery pink glitter cake, which I think is ridiculous, the lizard can’t appreciate or love this. , it can’t even feel emotions.”
And the mother revealed her true feelings for Ellie, confiding: “Honestly, I don’t have any particular feelings for the lizard. I think it looks like a snake and that makes I’m terrified, and it’s incapable of feeling emotions.” I don’t know why she feels so attached to it.
“She even named it Ellie, a human name, so she could tell people ‘I’ve got to go home with Ellie’ so she could act like she was busy taking care of her baby at home. home which I believe is an unhealthy way to deal with her social anxiety” , she should learn to be comfortable with saying no instead of using a lizard as an excuse to neglect of social obligations. “
But people assumed the mother was wrong, with Cake_agent2101 saying: “That’s right. She was absolutely bitter that her daughter wouldn’t ‘give’ her grandchild.”
Tracy27 wrote: “Yes, after it became clear that ‘gender reveal’ was just a fun excuse to see the human face she loves, you have become a real green AH for continuing to flirt being promiscuous and petty about it just to punish her for not using her uterus as your dream factory. Get it. Out. Yours. Damn it. Self. OP.”
Gnr_27 joked: “The word grandson is often replaced by tbh grandlizard.”
While Azh88 added: “Literally, it was obvious that the daughter of the ops just wanted to see her mother and then she turned it over and said the lizard was not her granddaughter.”

So far this year at least 4 people have died at such events, with two pilots dying in March in Cancun. They were flying a plane that revealed the baby’s gender when the plane plunged into the sea.
In March, 21-year-old Demetris Johnson was attending a friend’s gender reveal party in Washington DC when someone opened fire and killed him.
While in February, 28-year-old Christopher Pekny was said to have assembled a device for use in the big rollout, when it exploded, killing him.
