Parents Admit Times They Really Thought, 'Damn, My Baby Is Ugly'

Having a child is a beautiful, magical miracle that many people feel very lucky to do. It also happens to be one of the most painful things a person could possibly go through, but hey, men are stronger than women right? I digress.

The point is, after all that work, and planning, and pain you'd hope that the final project is at least presentable. But then this alien creature comes sprawling out of your insides and you realize that thing is yours and it's pretty crazy. Obviously, it's beautiful, it's a baby! It's the purest thing ever, but damn they can be funny looking too. It's okay if you've had these thoughts too.

People Describe Their Funny Childbirth Stories

Giving birth is without a doubt one of the most beautiful miracles to occur every single second in this life. Side-note: Isn't that crazy? However, even though it is a precious thing, it is uncomfortable, painful, and gooey. I don't know about you, but my mom loves to remind me of that too. I guess childbirth/raising children are both one of those things that you never fully understand until you give it a go.

Went down hill to a park and everything was fine. On the way back I just couldn't walk up the hill.

Father Son Pictures Sparks Debate About Toxic Masculinity

In recent years, the conversation surrounding toxic masculinity has sparked some critical debate. Society holds some pretty archaic views regarding the stigmas still attached to men who express their emotions or do things perceived as 'soft' or 'feminine.' Although awareness is increasing, there is still a lot more progress to be made. One father, Eric Owens, experienced this first-hand when he posted a photo collage on Facebook of him and his son lying in his arms over the years, including one when his son was a teenager. His post, which he captioned "18 years later and he still under my arm," went viral, with thousands of people commenting on it. Although many of the comments were positive, a good handful of them (mostly from men) was negative, stating how strange they thought it was for a father to show affection to a grown son— something only a mother should do. Someone posted it all on Tumblr, adding a rant about how this was a classic example of the toxic masculinity pervasive in society and people are agreeing. What do you think about it all?
