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.
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.
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.
What Mila said is that the child is YOURS not the PREGNANCY

#WhoIFollow: Kitchen Witchcraft with Food Blogger @thekitchenwitch
In the #WhoIFollow series, we ask Instagrammers to share their favorite people to follow. For more photos and videos from Jess and her favorites, follow @thekitchenwitch, @yossyarefi, @thehousepie, @waywardspark and @thegreatkosmickitchen on Instagram.
Jess Schreibstein (@thekitchenwitch) credits childhood summer vacations chowing down on local butter-coated sweet corn on Chincoteague Island, Virginia, as a stepping stone in her path to food blogging. Inspired by her parents who were both talented in their kitchen at home, Jess began trying her hand in the kitchen when she left home. “The more I began to cook, the more I began to approach food as more than just putting a meal on the table,” she says. “It’s this amazing thing—so much of our health and energy comes from what we choose to eat.” Jess’s passion for food is evident in her Instagram photos, where she shares everyday moments made all the more special with freshly baked cookies or a trip to the farmers market. Putting the emphasis on simple, local and seasonal ingredients, she lets the food tell the story in her photos to demonstrate that home cooking is not only accessible but also fun.
An active member in the Washington D.C. food scene, Jess founded the DC Food Swap, a series of teaching events where individuals learn cooking techniques or trade homemade goods. As she explains, the DC Food Swap was created “to bring together our local food community and create opportunity for new cooks to practice and share their efforts in a supportive space.” Jess has been documenting her culinary exploits on her blog, Witchin’ in the Kitchen, for four years and uses Instagram as a quick, informal way to share her culinary witchcraft and find inspiration.
