The massive blaze started when a stunt intended to reveal the biological sex of an unborn baby went wrong.
"For the love of God, stop burning things down to tell everyone about your kid's penis," wrote Jenna Karvunidis.

“There are plenty of reasons to eat cake,” writer Jenna Karvunidis said. “You can pick one that doesn’t reinforce an attitude of harm toward members of the LGBTQ community.”
