Default Men at baby showers?

My sister in law and her better half had a Co-Ed baby shower today? My wife and daughter went but I refused to go because I feel thatís something reserved for women. Am I old fashioned or just an A**?

Nope. Some new fangled trend just like all these over the top gender reveals.

Coed baby showers, what's next coed bathrooms!?!

The Co-Ed baby showers I’ve been to consisted of women in one herd doing lady things, and men in another herd drinking beer questioning why we were there.

Yep, if it's an excuse to get friends together and have a good time (like drink/eat/bull****), I don't care what you call it.

If the only purpose is to give the mom-to-be cute baby outfits...I'd pass (not that I have to, no kids ).

Disclaimer...there is alcohol, but thatís not enough to get me there. Also itís 99% people I donít know. If it was drinking with friends I might consider it.

Short term might not be great but If the kid grows up to be a hunter he/she will be thankful! I love being at the lease for my bday during deer season!

They are having a baby shower for my wife in January. I can assure I won’t be there. Heck, I thought that was the best part about a baby shower? Was a reason for all the husbands to get together and go to the deer lease.

I am 34 and it’s been going on a while. Gender reveals, coed baby showers, and wedding showers get on my nerves. Those are all women things as far as I’m concerned.

Just dropped my wife off at her baby shower for our daughter coming in late December headed to Cabela's now. Did the same thing at the other one she had last weekend as well went to the range with a couple of the husbands. One of her buddies tried to make them coed I shot that crap down right quick.

Well, I don't know you (yet), but you probably are just an A**. You should have gone to please your sister-in-law and your wife because it was expected and your wife would not have to explain why her husband did not love her and her sister enough to grace them with your presence.


Having said that, this co-ed shower thing is part of the wussification of America!!!.

No. You are not an *****. Good job standing up for something bigger than you. If you don't hold the line now you will be expected to attend every single baby shower, wedding shower, and everything else that becomes a trendy event for couples for the rest of your life. #justsaynopeiaintgoing

Was asked to come to one for a family friend. We declined but was surprised she was having one. Third kid from the third different guy. Maybe I’m an *** but I would think at this point it’s not a big deal. But I also only go to peoples first wedding too.
