It's 2023 and people are still obsessing over an infant's sex at birth. Researchers, doctors, and psychologists agree that an unborn child's biological sex doesn't have any relationship to their chosen gender identity and presentation. Yet people continue to host elaborate gatherings where they obnoxiously shoot blue or pink balloons into the air.
And, to make matters worse, these parties keep wreaking havoc on animals and the environment. In the last few years alone, gender reveal parties have started wildfires and dyed rivers blue!In this specific case
of a gender-reveal-gone-disastrously-wrong, someone used a poor pigeon as a pawn and dyed it pink!Sign now to demand NYC Mayor Eric Adams and the Mayor's Office of Animal Welfare investigate who did this and hold them accountable!
Dyeing animals can be very hazardous and very painful
for them, which is why in many states, it is illegal. In this instance, the bird that suffered was a domestic pigeon, meaning it had not developed the flying or survival skills that wild pigeons have.
So when authorities found this poor animal, the young bird was severely malnourished, likely unable to hunt or feed itself due to the trauma it had endured. It is unclear if the party-throwers disposed of the bird because the baby's sex at birth wasn't "a girl" as expected, or because they only ever wanted to use it as a prop. Either way, this trend is horrific and abusive - and needs to end.
Animals should not have to suffer because of human "gender reveal" parties anymore! Sign the petition to tell Mayor Eric Adams and the Mayor's Office of Animal Welfare: we cannot allow any more animals to be dyed or harmed for human celebration! They must investigate this awful instance of animal abuse and hold the people responsible accountable!
