You identify as one.

Stop reducing women to their biological processes. 

Stop ridiculing others for their birthing choices.

Stop acting like giving birth in a certain way makes you superior.

Stop passing judgment upon others for their medical choices.

Stop tearing other women down in hopes it makes you look better.

Quoting Anonymous 3: Well you're saying you can just say you identify as something because you say so. I'm now a black, rich woman. 🙄

Quoting Quakercaoimhe:

That's not how that works, and literally no one said that. Get new material, you're boring and obtuse. 

Quoting Anonymous 3: So can I identify as a black woman even though my skin is white?

Quoting ThatDancerGirl: Evidently it's because 50 years ago epidurals didn't exist. So by her logic anything we use today that wasn't around 50 years ago makes us not real people.
Quoting Anonymous 6: I'm still trying to figure out why anyone thinks an epidural makes someone not a real woman.

What's next? "You're not a real person because you've had an x ray!"

Quoting Curlymom234: I've read them before on here. I had a C section and totally disagree. I also really wish I could've had a normal delivery.



Quoting Anonymous 6: Someone made a post stating that. She also referred to a C-section as an easy way out.



Quoting Curlymom234: Now that's just dumb.

I can relate. My son was breach, I didn't have a choice.

Here's the thing though,by her statement that would also mean any woman who had her SO in the room with her isn't a real woman either, because back then the women did everything alone except for the drs and nurses. Also if she had researched it women were often sedated or put under anesthesia to have babies. Also epidurals were also used back then. They just were not as common. So her point is moot.

Stalin defeated the Nazis and liberated his concentration camps. 

Stalin isn't even my favourite, and communism does not begin or end with him. Tito > Stalin

We can expand that further by taking into account other cultural practices surrounding birth. "You're not a real woman if you didn't give birth in front of a crowd" lol

Her whole argument was built around a fallacy, which is pathetic.
