I should have slapped him...

No I wouldn't really slap him, though I wanted to.

Last night, my SO and I were watching TV. Of course he has the remote so I'm just observing. He stops at 16 & Pregnant as the girl is giving birth. (That part always makes me tear up if I watch it lol). I had noticed the oxygen mask on her and I couldn't for the life of me remember if I had one too or just the nose hose, so I asked him. He says "No you just had the hose. You didn't need the mask, it's not like you gave actual birth, you just had a csection."

WHAT???? I was completely speechless!!! I was so mad I just sat there, thoughts racing through my head of what I could say. Nothing. I made myself a glass of chocolate milk, chugged it, then told him goodnight. I'm usually so good at addressing why I'm angry but this just totally blew me away, and I don't even think he realizes how much it hurt me. Am I just being too sensitive about all this or should I just tell him? I feel like throwing a book at him and telling him to read it and learn something but I wouldn't even know which book to choose lol

  • Men are so thoughtless sometimes. He probably has no idea how you feel about the subject. He probably has no idea what he said was hurtful. You have every right to be hurt and angry- what he said was completely wrong. Birth describes the process of separating the offspring from the mother and you totally did that! You gave birth. You created a life, you grew the life, you went through a process of separation. Was in vaginal? no- neither was mine but we both had babies and we bother certainly gave birth. The only book you need is the dictionary.

  • No, he's not a jackass, just made a jackass remark. But thanks anyway.
