As A Woman, I'm Disgusted Someone Would Prank Their Husband About A Miscarriage And THEN Put It On The Internet

As if this is anything to laugh about.

Back in late August "Team VZ", a YouTube account, posted a video of a pregnant woman faking a miscarriage as an attempt to "prank" her partner, the father of their soon to come child.

Yes, a miscarriage "prank."

As a young woman, I know many people who have struggled with trying to get pregnant and suffering from a miscarriage after miscarriage. The pain that these women feel is nothing funny to "prank" about.

Their accounts have about roughly 280,000 subscribers, yet it wasn't until screenshots of the (truthfully, disgusting) prank video, that it started gaining attention. Comments have been disabled from the video due to the mass amount of attention and concerns the video has received.

It's a video that went way too far. Miscarriage is heartbreaking. If I had the chance to speak to the soon-to-be mother of the "prankster," I'd want her to know this:

Remember how excited you were to find out you were pregnant. To be able to announce to all of your friends and family that you were expecting a child. That you had created life. Keep that excitement in your head. Your pregnancy goes along and you start to think of what the gender may be or what you might name him/her once they're born.

Then, you wake up one morning to find yourself covered in blood. You lost the baby.

You lost the child you created with your partner. You lost the human being you helped create. The baby names you picked, are now stored away in the back of your mind, with the hope that, someday, you'll be able to pull them from the back of your head for the next time you get pregnant.

Picture yourself actually having a miscarriage. Do you still think it's something to "prank" someone about?

To the soon-to-be father, that the soon-to-be-mother decided to "prank,"

I'm shocked you let the video go live. I can only imagine the pain in your heart you must have felt when she told you she lost your child. The excitement of creating life goes both ways. You were never meant to go through that kind of pain. Nor should your counterpart have put you through it.

And to go to the extent of setting up the scene, placing fake blood in the toilet and around yourself. I'm disgusted that a woman would ever agree to something like this. That this is the lengths you would go to, just to "get a laugh" and to "get more views."

Well, now you have your views, plus thousands upon millions of people, who are disgusted by your idea of a prank. Hopefully, nobody remembers this by the time your soon-to-be child goes to school. Hopefully, nobody mentions to him/her that their parents put up a "prank" video, that they lost him/her in a miscarriage.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.

Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

I Am A Feminist And I Don't Hate Men

It's time to let the world know what Feminism truly is.

45

I know what you've heard about feminists. You've heard that we're all lesbians, that we hate men, and that we think women are the superior species. You believe that men should be fearing for their lives because "people like us" are making them feel less than worthy. You see us at protests waving our equality flags and think, "Wow, do they really have to do that?"

The answer?

Yes.

And here's why:

For YEARS, women have been struggling to gain the same equal rights as men. We've been dealing with issues such as gender wage gaps, the right to vote, the right to have our own bank account (Yeah. Until 1974, we were required to have a man as a cosigner for our own bank accounts), and so many more.

Of course, times have changed, and women have definitely gained more rights, which is great! But the thing is, there's still inequality between women and men. That's just the truth.

Women are still getting harassed on the street every single day, and women are still being denied jobs because they "don't look" like what the company expects (which is usually, a man).

What does all of this have to do with feminists hating men, you may ask?

Well, for starters, these are the issues that we actually care about. Wait...what?

We, like feminists, care about equality. Hating men and wishing females were the only ones with rights? That's called inequality.

And we aren't here for it.

We stand for equal pay. We stand for women and men having rights over their own bodies. We stand for kindness towards anyone and everyone. We stand for equality.

Now that's what being a Feminist is all about.

So, you can complain about how much we hate men and wish they would burn in hell. But at the end of the day, we know what we stand for.

And hating men, isn't it.
