Mila Kunis Against Men Saying “We Are Pregnant” - Video

What the fuck is this bullshit and why was it recommended for me?

It’s not like men are involved in the creation of the baby or anything.

I mean shit, I understand that pregnancy is an extremely strenuous thing on the woman, but that doesn’t mean that a dude can’t be proud of the fact that he’s going to be a father.

Hmm. Weird how someone would want to be considered a part of the pregnancy…
There goes all of my respect for Mila Kunis.

My goodness, women like this have some fucking nerve. Good luck Ashton.

Please stop.

Pregnancy is a very dangerous time for cis-women. Until cis-men are capable of nine months of pain without the ability to take painkillers, followed by hours of one of the most painful experiences a human can undergo, I agree with Mila Kunis. It is your child. Not your pregnancy. You don’t get a fucking medal for sticking your dick inside someone and impregnating them, you get a child. So no, you don’t need a fucking spotlight highlighting your months of work and pain and the fact that you can potentially die trying to bring life into the world when you have not undergone any of the physical effort.

Things you can expect during pregnancy: Anemia, urinary tract infections, constipation, mental health conditions including intense depression, hyperemesis gravidarm (basically when persistent vomiting is more than just morning sickness and requires hospitalization). Not to mention there are dozens of infections that can cause serious problems. (x) (x)

Oh and the fact that 20% of pregnancies end in miscarriages which obviously requires hospitalization for the pregnant woman and causes a lot of emotional trauma.

Or that you can’t consume alcohol, most types of fish, you can’t expose yourself to hot water (or any heat, really), or get an x-ray. You cannot eat lunch meats, raw sprouts (radishes, alfalfa, etc.), soft cheeses, anything unpasteurized is out, as are foods with raw or undercooked eggs. And caffeine can lead to miscarriages, so say goodbye to coffee, teas, and chocolate. (x) (x) (x)

About 2 million pregnancy losses occur annually in the U.S.; 6 million babies are born. 25% of pregnancies are lost.

14.5% of pregnant women will experience at least one pregnancy complication.

11% of women are diagnosed with post partum depression.

(x)

800 women die because of pregnancy-related problems in the U.S. annually. (x)

Labor can last for 36 hours or more. You’re in a room full of strangers, who are all seeing your vagina, your blood, your shit, your piss, and your agony. It’s common for tearing to occur during the delivery (x) and after the baby is born you still have to deliver the placenta (essentially an organ).

Pregnancy is terrifying, dangerous, and uncomfortable. None of you have the right to shit on Mila Kunis for telling the truth: You do not deserve the spotlight of your wife’s pregnancy. So get over yourselves. Yes, the father CAN be proud, and he should be. But it’s not his pregnancy. He is not the one who will endure it.

It is not weird that someone would want to be involved in their wife’s pregnancy. It is weird that you have the fucking nerve to lose respect for someone reminding you that the father is not the pregnant one in the picture.

So please, stop.

Today in male entitlement: now women ”have some nerve” if they remind men that they are not, in fact, the pregnant ones. 

I love this post so so much

Can I correct the pregnancy = death post above, please?  

Seriously, it’s ominous and a little bit wrong.  I have never been pregnant, however I have watched my friends have babies, my family suffer miscarriages, etc.  Also, there was a Netflix documentary about it, so I’m pretty much an expert (not really, but I do know some facts).  But anyway:

»Miscarriage does not usually require hospitilization.  Unless you’re bleeding a lot or it was a partial miscarriage, you just need to talk to your doctor.  That’s it.  It’s not necessarily some gruesome thing, it just happens (and yes, it is common, but it shouldn’t require a ambulance).[x]

»Placenta delivery shouldn’t be painful.  You will have contractions, but the placenta should just flop out.  All a placenta is is really pliable tissue that’s helped nourish the baby all this time (it’s good to eat too!)[x][x]

!»A lot of the dangers that come with pregnancy are a side effect of the hyper-medicalization of a natural process.  

»In the early 1900s, male doctors (the prevalent kind at that time), basically staged a smear campaign and destroyed the reputations of the traditional midwives (women).  Midwives allowed their clients to direct the birthing process with the flow of their own bodies.[x]

»Male “conventional” doctors, on the other hand, would heavily sedate mothers and put them in the Lithotomy (basically missionary) position, which actually works against gravity and decreases room for baby to squeeze through.  It is supposed to help the doctor see everything and quickly spot bleeds, but it also works against basic anatomy and physics.  This position, combined with today’s drug cocktails, leads to many invasive procedures (ie Cesarean sections), that could have otherwise been avoided.

!»Not all pregnancies can be carried out naturally, and it is great that there are so many ways to help people carrying babies.  There is also absolutely nothing wrong with someone wanting to go the hospital/medical route, because it’s their choice.  But there are also great things about the traditional patient-midwife relationship and the natural birthing process.

»Pregnancy can be a scary thing, but once you get past the common misconceptions and theatrical fear tactics, it’s just a weird body thing that happens and that’s natural.

Okay, so cis-men shouldn’t say “we’re pregnant.”  Because it’s not possible.
