Boss Dragged For Claiming Employee's Morning Sickness 'Counteracts Feminist Movement'

If you ever need a stark reminder that sexism is still very much alive and well, here's a story for ya. A male employer recently posted a rant on Reddit's Am I The AHole, expressing his displeasure over his (by the sounds of it, very much overworked) female employee's productivity being affected by her morning sickness. Yeah, no sh*t Sherlock. Try going through one day of pregnancy, and then mansplain about what a breeze it is. He said that since she was only in her "first trimester and barely even pregnant yet," he didn't think it was "fair to other women that she was using a normal bodily function as an excuse for low productivity." Ummm OK. Death is also a 'normal bodily function,' so I'm not sure that argument holds up. The cherry on the top of his ignorant, misogynistic rant was him telling her, "This is what women fought to counteract during the feminist movement." OK, so two things are clear to me: not only does this idiot have zero comprehension of how difficult pregnancy can be, but he's completely missed the point that his dismissal of her medical issues because it's pregnancy-related, is the sexist part. As you can imagine, Redditors were quick to jump down his throat, calling him out on being the a—hole that he is. God help his wife when she is pregnant.

Man's Family Harasses Pregnant GF After She Refuses To Move In To Run Down House

Buying a house is a huge step to make. Some people avoid it for the majority of their lives because it's not something you can easily take back. Renting a place and owning it are two entirely different experiences. When you rent, you don't have to think long term, only until the end of your lease. When you own, well it's yours now, so you better make sure it's maintainable and worth all the effort.

The main point we're getting at here is... it's not a decision to be made rashly, and if you have a significant other who's meant to move in with you, maybe let them have a look before you make one of the largest investments of your life. Just some food for thought.

Men Who Got Super Sassy About Pregnancy And Pissed Off Their Wives

We can't imagine having a pregnant wife is easy because you have to deal with the hormones, the stress, and the responsibility of getting them through the pregnancy. But being pregnant is even harder, so the sympathy for partners is somewhat limited. These men think they've got it so tough having a pregnant wife and have resorted to being smart asses to cope with it. Three guesses as to whether or not their wives appreciate their sass? Yep, you got it. They don't! These tweets from dads-to-be prove that it's never too early to start with the dad humor.

Unreasonable Neighbor Asks Pregnant Woman To Wear Bra Under Shirt In Her Private Garden

Nosy neighbors have a special place in hell reserved just for them. People need to learn how to mind their own business, especially about things that don't concern them. Just because someone lives next to you doesn't mean you get a say in their affairs unless it directly harms you. Unfortunately, not everyone shares this viewpoint, and one particularly meddlesome woman rubbed her pregnant neighbor up the wrong way. The 32-weeks pregnant woman took to Reddit's Am I The A—Hole to complain about her utterly unreasonable neighbor, who accused her of being "indecent" after not wearing a bra under her shirt on her private property.

Pregnant Woman's Neighbor Complains That She Is Vomiting Too Loudly

Pregnancy is a beautiful experience, but throw in some bad morning sickness, and it can make you rethink the whole thing. Contrary to what the name suggests, morning sickness isn't just limited to feeling nauseous or throwing up in the morning. It can strike at any hour of the day, and you best hope you're close to a bathroom when it does. But what if, as you're struggling to keep your food down, and you couldn't feel shttier if you tried, your a*hole neighbor starts going off about how your vomiting, which she can hear through the walls, is giving her a gag reflex. You'd probably tell her to stick it where the sun don't shine, right? Well, that's exactly what this woman faced when her neighbor asked her to do something about her morning sickness puking noises.

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.

Pregnant Women Struggles Which Prove They All Deserve A Serious Round Of Applause

Being pregnant (from the outside) seems like such a beautiful and almost magical experience. 9 Months of researching baby names in books, going to exciting doctor's appointments, and throwing very extra gender reveals. Honestly, sounds like a breeze! Actually, though pregnancy is so much more than how it is portrayed in movies. You might be surprised to find out that it is just a little more complex than airy maxi dresses, and birthing classes. I'm just as shocked as you are.

Women are sharing their daily pregnancy struggles, and they really just make me have a lot more respect for these queens.

Disturbingly Creepy Pregnancy Photos From People Who Probably Shouldn't Be Parents

Parenting is a privilege that not everyone deserves — a fact which usually comes to light once these people have already had their children. But sometimes, you can tell that a couple has bizarre parenting ideas while they are still pregnant, and you can bet that things will only get worse once they've given birth. One telltale sign could be taking creepy, tacky, and cringe-worthy pregnancy pictures, like this group of soon-to-be parents below. I'm not sure who told them that it's a cute idea to dress your pregnant belly up like a basketball or to pose with a gun, but they were wildly misinformed.  Check out these horrifically awkward pregnancy photos below and cringe along with us.

A lot of time we have to deal with unsolicited advice, people will just come up to you and tell you something they assume you didn't know before. It's one of the many joys of being a woman.

Relatable Pregnancy Memes For Anyone Struggling Through The 'Beautiful' Experience

If you are currently pregnant or have at any point been pregnant, then you'll know how beautiful of an experience it is. Nine months of pure bliss, where you get to bask in the glory of being proud to grow a new life inside of you, knowing that it will only get easier once you give birth. OK, fine, that may be stretching the truth— a little. Realistically, pregnancy is more like nine months of roller-coaster hormones, having your days taken over by morning sickness, and getting god-awful cravings at stupid-o-clock in the morning. All while knowing that it only gets more difficult once your little miracle makes an appearance into the world. If this sounds familiar, then these pregnancy memes are for you.

Women Reveal Ridiculous Stories Of How They Swore They Were Pregnant

Okay, this is definitely a thing. As girls, we usually all learn about what being pregnant is before we fully understand what sex is. This results in a delay of information, a disconnect you might say. We know that we are the gender that has babies, but what leads up to that? Some parents will try to scare their kids by saying that they can get pregnant in all kinds of ways. Thank god we have the internet these days. Just try not to get sucked into the "I didn't know I was pregnant" stories.

Man Trolled For Telling Pregnant Fiancé Not To Wear Tight Wedding Dress, Because It's 'Tacky'

Most brides look breathtaking whatever their dress choice (except the few like these, who get it wrong). But sometimes, life throws curveballs at you, and you have to roll with the punches. Some brides aren't always able to wear their dream dress for various reasons, especially in the current COVID climate, where no one knows what the hell is going on. Planning a wedding nowadays is difficult for everyone, and one couple decided they didn't want to wait until they could have their dream wedding and wanted to start trying for a baby first instead. They got pregnant straight away and immediately started planning their wedding, which would occur when the bride was 30 weeks pregnant. No biggie, because, as most open-minded people would agree, a pregnant bride is a glowing bride, and a glowing bride is a happy bride.  But not according to this woman's fiance, who posted on Reddit's Am I The Ahole, claiming that he thinks her choice of tight-fitting wedding dress is trashy, and "flaunting her pregnancy while we're getting married would be a bad look". Shockingly, she didn't take well to her fiance essentially shaming her for being pregnant at their wedding—a process in which he was clearly a willing participant. Redditers jumped to her defense, calling him out to be the massive ahole that he is.
