    women are so lucky that they can give birth.

    poor men will never have the option...

    LOL! men are such wusses... if it was up to them, there would have been 1 birth, then that man would have told all of the other men and that would have been the first and last baby ever born....;)

    Have to say I haven't heard this comment from a man very often (or ever!)

    Well, if you're interested in experiencing labor pain maybe you can contact this doctor: http://thestir.cafemom.com/pregnancy...s_Labor_to_See
    “Many women have described their experiences of childbirth as being associated with a
    spiritual uplifting, the power of which they have never previously been aware …
    To such a woman childbirth is a monument of joy within her memory.
    She turns to it in thought to seek again an ecstasy which passed too soon.”

    Vagina/womb envy is actually a prominent part of feminist psychology and an unexpressed form of envy experienced by men who compensate for it by being overtly masculine. OR SO the feminists say. I think GeoDerek is just more comfortable with expressing his feminine side and nothing wrong with it at all!

    I'll be 26 in a few weeks and my lil boy is 7 months old. My mom told me that God had told her that 2011 was the year for me to pop her a grandbaby. I laughed it off, because I wasn't married and I was in a long distance engagement. And when I say long distance engagement, I mean South Africa and France apart. I don't know what came over us when we flirted with risk, but that one-time risk got me knocked up. We got married the day after my birthday and I'm relishing every moment of motherhood. This coming from a girl who vowed to her grade 4 teacher that she'd never wed nor have babies. All I can say is things change as we grow and what we have planned for ourselves doesn't always go according to plan. So now that I'm older and a wiser to my capabilities and strength as a woman, I can proudly say I was born ready.

    Nope. Nothing wrong with it. Just think it's interesting.

    One man in Canada had a baby. Breastfed for like 16 months too. He is causing a bit of a controversy in Canada because he wants to be a LLL leader but they won't let him because all leaders have to be female. Crazy story in the news the past few days.
