There is a lot of embarrassment surrounding the words sex and gender but, contrary to popular belief, the terms are not interchangeable. While sex refers to biology, namely the genitalia a person is born with, gender is still much liquid. It comes not from our DNA or natural tendencies, rather, a situated of standards developed by society and cultural activities. These “gender laws” are subject to change, whether by the world as a whole or by an individual. For instance, 100 years ago, pink was a color worn mainly by boys, but today we think of it as a “girl” color!
But, for now, “were living in” national societies that recognizes pink as standing for girls and blue for boys. Many expectant mothers use the colourings in what is known as a “gender reveal”( although, as we know now, it should actually be called a “sex reveal”) to announce the arrival of a new newborn. Sometimes it’s balloons in a box or, as in this case, icing inside a cupcake. Either way, pink or blue emerge and begin to set up expectations about the life that is still forming.
The Gigi sisters are clearly aroused when their parents hand them cupcakes and tell them to bite in to find out the sex of their new sibling, but the little girl on the left clearly came to the table with some expectations of her own. Maybe she missed her nap or it’s just one of those days, but at 0:34 her little face is sad enough to break even the stoniest of hearts. We’re sure that she’ll regain just fine and love that little newborn no matter what, but it’s about to become a while before she can live this reaction down!
