    Default "We're pregnant."

    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=onDCvHtHSkY

    The video is funny, but it's too bad there are so many trolls and dumbos in the comment section.

    To expand further on the controversial sentiments, I don't like when couples say "we're pregnant" either, even before I rose to claim feminism. Men cannot physically be pregnant, and I feel the statement also detracts from what the woman experiences, and subconsciously decreases the respect and understanding for her experience. I think the more appropriate and accurate phrase would be "we're expecting" or "we're having a baby."

    The word "pregnant" does not encompass every interchangeable term for "team." It means carrying a child within the womb. So no, he's not pregnant. She is.

    Thoughts?

    It might be obnoxious but isn't it infinitely better than the millions of dudes skipping out on the entire process? I'd rather have an overenthusiastic dad than an absent one.

    I've heard that retort. I don't think you should make a false statement just to promote your enthusiasm. "We're expecting" or "we're having a baby" is the same, non-obnoxious, enthusiasm, while also being accurate.

    I've never heard anyone use the phrase "we're pregnant" until today.

    this is just more blown out of proportion bullshit the feminazis can clutch onto and moan about.

    Without clicking the video, pretty sure this is because of the statement Mila Kunis made.

    It was an exaggerated, scripted comedy sketch about a legitimate comment that is somewhat frequently uttered.

    What's legitimate about the comment?

    It's not even biologically correct, nor does it imply partnership is any stronger than saying "My Wife/Gf/partner/spouse/etc is pregnant".

    It's kind of dumb to say to be honest. And I wouldn't say it's said even "somewhat frequently" either. Most of the people I know who've had kids or are having them never say that.

    I have heard it before, but it's rather uncommon. It just sounds like something someone is trying to push to be PC for something really insignificant. The fact that many men audibly claim they are about to raise a kid with their female partner is just fine. This shouldn't even be an issue.
