Someone gives birth and people say "I am so proud of you".  Ok??  So someone spreads their legs and has sex??  Congrats??? After like their fifth baby with three different guys and no job. Yes I heard this (and yes more than once).  

Verses someone works very hard to finish college or start their own business.  


I personally would be more proud of the latter

they can financially contribute to the world verses someone popping out babies with no job and many men.

even with their first baby-proud of someone because they had sex??  Ok??

i could see congratulations but proud??

I remember my sister telling me she was proud of me when she found out I was pregnant. It didn't make any sense to me then and it still doesn't now.

Pride isn't limited and can be expressed for anything someone wants to. If someone close to me handled the birthing process very well, I could see myself being proud of them. It doesn't mean I'm less proud of someone for getting their degree or starting a business.

I have never heard anyone say they are proud of another because they had a baby.

Being proud of someone for having a kid? I don't get that. Getting pregnant isn't exactly an accomplishment, normally. And for someone else to be proud of them is just really strange.
