The note said it is “both insincere and incorrect to pretend that gender reveal parties are not transphobic.”

Adding, “This is not about political correctness, it’s just … correct. We condemn gender reveals not because of our identity, but because of reality.”

Continuing, “Gender reveals are based on the illusion that genitals = gender and that there are only two options ‘boy or girl.’”

Lovato’s post gained a lot of attention, with some people agreeing and some who hit back at her remarks.

“Baby girl most of parents just wanna celebrate that they’re having a baby. Not the gender of the baby,” wrote one person on Instagram, while another added, “Or maybe they are fun for an expecting mother…”

A third person wrote, “I LOVE Demi but a gender reveal party is not transphobic. Stop trying to make people think it is . That’s the problem . Most people just wanna celebrate having a baby . And it’s their baby and they have the right to celebrate how they choose don’t push your beliefs on other people.”
