the female body is hardcore as fuck.
Yes is it.
so is the male body
it’s sad to see so many people like this on this website
OP is praising the fact that women hold a fucking infant in their belly the size of a ribcage, get the fuck over yourself for 3.5 seconds.
Why do people have to ruin awesome art by making everything into some kind of soapbox? Are we not allowed to think the human body in general is a fascinating thing no matter what gender?
All fuckery aside, there is nothing more brutal and hardcore than being pregnant. If you have not been pregnant, you just don’t fucking know. I didn’t know- I had an idea, but I didn’t fucking know until I actually was. The closest thing I ever got to recreating the feeling of having morning sickness was when I had to take an anti-inflammatory steroid recently for six days, and while it was fucking hell being uncontrollably nauseous all the time, it didn’t actually lead to vomiting multiple times a day for four months the way being pregnant did. There has been nothing before or since that was remotely like the feeling of having my body split itself apart over a period of nine-and-a-bit months, there has been nothing before or since like the constant ache that comes from trying to sit on a chair when your hips have disconnected themselves from each other, the fact that I went from sleeping four hours a night to being unable to stay awake more than sixteen hours a day, the feeling of having all of my organs compressed against my bones and how hard it was to find any sort of comfortable position. There has been nothing before or since like contractions, back labor, or having something literally tear its way out of me by literally ripping flesh and muscle apart so deeply that the nurse had to go in there with a freaking three inch hook to stitch me back up. There has been no period, no matter how horrible, that compared to the constant blood and cramping that comes after, which for some people lasts anywhere from 4 to 12 weeks.
I don’t think people might generally notice the difference in how people are treated before they have been pregnant or after, but after nine months of creating another human being out of my bones and blood, the last thing I needed was to look around at how society shits on people whose bodies changed because of what they accomplished, as if the end result of that labor was something to be ashamed of, as if those people were only worthwhile or desirable if they somehow managed to get back to their pubescent, pre-child bodies, and were to be pitied if they couldn’t remove all signs of their pregnancies. So anybody who responds to “Look at how powerful and amazing a pregnant person is” with “But men! But people who aren’t pregnant! Why can’t we appreciate them for once!!” can fuck right the fuck off.
