going full nut job now.

Can't believe they let this one air, very messed up message. When Howard and his wife learn that their new baby is male they are extremely disappointed. nothing to see here folks just swallow and move on. I know it's just the big bang theory but still, this kind of hateful message is just plain crazy.
