Dara O'Brian had me in stitches when I saw his bit about science and the absurd 'impartiality' of the media in regard to it.

The couple who lives in Toronto says they have decided to keep baby Storm's gender a secret to protect the child from social gender norms. The couple has two older boys, Jazz, 5 and Kio, 2
