what not to say to pregnant women

Post by Dendrobates on 2017-06-19, 10:31

This is for men and women. I haven't encountered any woman who disagrees with this. But for 1. You most likely never want to ask a woman when she is due. Sure it may be obvious, but what if she wasn't. Im just surprised at how many people ask me, when it can go badly for them, even if it is obvious. Of course, this is with strangers not family/friends. But the big one of commenting how big she is, are you going to pop any moment, or if it is twins...:.need to all be shot in the face. There is in no situation where any woman feels good and ok by those comments/questions.

"Have you gained weight?"

I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.

"When's that BAY-Bee due?"
"What baby?"
"Huhhhhhh"

Maybe because I worked in restaurants since I was 16, but I never say anything to any woman about pregnancy, unless it comes from them first. You just never know. I'm not sure what else to not say to a pregnant woman, I know with my wife I never said no.

WTF? Am I the only person that thinks you don't say anything to a woman, negative or positive, about her physical appearance?

You guys who do either have huge balls or little sense. Either way, you're probably fun to hang out with to see reactions.

No way do you ask some woman you don't know if they're pregnant. If they aren't it ends badly for everyone. Even if they are it's kind of personal. Just don't.

A couple months ago a friend of mine told me she was due at the end of September. Now, I remembered my buddy who had a kid last year at the end of September who famously knocked his wife up after our New Years party the prior year. So anyway, as soon as she told me that the first thing out of my mouth was "heh. New Years." She was like "ummm.... yeah... exactly." It was very awkward.

So anyway, I usually just ask weird sex questions mostly about positions they were in and stuff like that.

My buddy who had his kid in march... his wife honestly has no privacy issues. We came back to their house from seeing Alien, and walked in on her breastfeeding. She thought nothing of it and started talking to us. Now I'm all for seeing boobs, but when a small human is attached to it like a leech, my buddy and I walked out.

Cool story I know.

Yea, I'm just surprised at how every single day someone says something to me about when I'm due. I overall don't mind, and I look very pregnant, but I just wouldn't ask that to strangers.

It's also a big no no to just touch a pregnant woman's stomach without permission. Even strangers do this. I haven't encountered strangers doing that to me thankfully. I don't mind my friends or family, but many women don't even want that.

Sounds like the set up to quite the fetish porn, involving a threesome with a pregnant woman and a guy in a wrestling mask.

So why would you comment about any kind of appearance? Even saying "oh man, you look tired" in empathy to a co worker isn't worth it. So many other small talk subjects. Whatevs

Exactly. In regards to intensity asking where I work it's not about that. It's just not commenting on appearance at all.

It wasn't here turtleneck it was somewhere else :) I know you may not have known which day New Years was, but there's really no need for you to have a calendar when your primary purpose in life is providing me with visual provocation while I scratch my legs with razor blades.

I did hear about that. That'd be neat. I hope it happens. The other stupid countries are just supposed to have the stupid games no one cares about in them. So they barely count.

For them, they don't have to ask. MSURed and I could go full lesbo. I offered for them, but we all realized how awkward that would look, especially since we were here for a MS fundraiser.

Why do you have his picture saved? That's honestly creepy.

Where to start?
I mean, the first thing with pea soup is the texture, okay?
I've had watery pea soup, it's AWFUL.
Uh, I've had gelatinous, thick pea soup, it's TERRIBLE.
Pea soup, much like clam chowder, needs to have that consistency first, that you can stand the spoon up in it, but the spoon soon tilts, that's the consistency you want.
Number two: Uh, pea soup on it's own can be a little bland. It wants, uh, a fairly aggressive peppering and salting.
Number three: Pea soup needs a fine dice of ham. Not bacon, not any other meat, not turkey. It needs a fine dice of ham.
Uh, number four: Uh, pea soup scorches easily. You don't wanna heat it on a high heat. You wanna heat it on medium low, just until it's warmed through.
Uh, number five: Pea soup is best made, uh, by hand, not out of a Campbell's can. And the key to pea soup, you want a ham bone, uh, for the stock you make, uh, to, to boil your peas.
