I trust that I am not alone in finding it peculiar when a man announces: “We are pregnant.”
In my own case my disquiet derives from my unwavering respect for correct linguistic usage. Others may have different feelings for different.
One understands that it is the feministically correct expression, one that sees men and women as utterly and totally equal. Apparently, it's sexist to believe that only women get pregnant.
Yesterday, a pregnant actress named Mila Kunis took out after talk show host Jimmy Kimmel when he dared express the notion that both he and his wife were pregnant.
Here is E’s report of Kunis’s epic rant:
Pregnant actress Mila Kunis, 36, who is engaged to Ashton Kutcher, opened up about how she is sick of men saying “we” to describe a couple’s pregnancy. “Stop saying, ‘We’re pregnant.’ You’re not pregnant! Do you have to squeeze a watermelon-sized person out of your lady-hole? No. Are you crying alone in your car listening to a stupid Bette Midler song? No. When you wake up and throw up, is it because you’re nurturing a human life? No,” she declared. Kunis went on the amazing tirade after host Jimmy Kimmel started a sentence, “My wife and I are pregnant.” Kunis also spoke about her lack of ability to drink, declaring that if men do throw up, “It’s because you had too many shots of tequila. Do you know how many shots of tequila we had? None. Because we can’t have shots of tequila. We can’t have anything because we’ve got your little love goblin growing inside of us. All you did was roll over and fall asleep.”
The next time you hear a man say that “we” are pregnant, replay in your mind what Mila Kunis said.
