Quick Question


What we men do at our jobs five - six days a week is called labor. Why is the process of childbirth, something most women only go through several times in their lives, also called "labor"?

Maybe there's a reason for this whole "sexism" thing I've been reading about.

Here, honey, let me pull this bowling ball from the length of your penis, and then ask me that question again.

Well that just doesn't sound like a pleasant 'sperience at all.

You are SO screwed if you go into the delivery room with that attitude.

Hahahahaha! Chrissy and Sadie are right. And you are so screwed.

I thought being screwed was how we ended up in the delivery room in the first place! Either that, or I've gotta stop washing my husband's underwear in the same load with mine.

Perhaps you hadn't noticed, but women also labor 5-6 days a week. Judging from that oversight, I guess there is something to that sexism thing.

It's an even bigger thing overseas. In England there's a whole political party dedicated to women giving birth.
