Think Being Pregnant Is Bad Now?…Here’s How Terrible It USED To Be

Think Being Pregnant Is Bad Now?…Here’s How Terrible It USED To Be

Blog
I am not, nor will I ever be, a pregnant woman. And while I do think there's some truth in the idea that men can suffer from womb envy, at the same time I am very glad I will never have to go through the things pregnant women do for just shy of a year.But things could be a lot worse for pregnant women...and they were for a VERY long time. Let's take a trip through the medically dubious and often blatantly sexist pregnancy myths of the past, shall we? 1. The wheat and barley pee test. Wikimedia Commons A document from ancient Egypt says that women in 1350 BCE would detect pregnancy by peeing on wheat and barley seeds. If the barley grows, it's a boy!

This Video Shows Just How Mean And Nasty Pit Bulls Are…LOL NOT

Blog
Pit bulls are just the worst, aren't they? They're dangerous, their jaws lock when they bite, and they are known to attack innocent kids. There's only one problem. Not one bit of that is true. Since the 1980s, pit bulls have been demonized by the media. It's gotten so bad, in fact, that pit bulls are more likely than any other breed to be abused, tortured, or abandoned. Every day, more than 2,800 are euthanized in the U.S. alone, adding up to over a million per year. Who are the real monsters in this situation?Pit bulls' jaws don't lock when they bite. Their friendly temperament is considered to be second only to that of Golden Retrievers. What's more, they used to be called "nanny dogs" and were often left in charge of babysitting children.

It Looks Like Your Average Modern Dance Class…But Wait ‘Til You See Who’s Teaching

Blog
For a while now, I've had a funny suspicion about modern dance... It's dancers who are lazy -- there's nothing wrong with that! -- so they just roll around on the floor. But it wasn't until I saw this video that my skepticism was finally affirmed. At first, it looks like a regular modern dance class... But just watch and see who the teacher is!(function(d, s, id) { var js, fjs = d.getElementsByTagName(s)[0]; if (d.getElementById(id)) return; js = d.createElement(s); js.id = id; js.src = "//connect.facebook.net/en_US/sdk.js#xfbml=1&version=v2.3"; fjs.parentNode.insertBefore(js, fjs);}(document, 'script', 'facebook-jssdk'));When a baby teaches a dance class.Posted by The Motherish on Saturday, February 14, 2015 I mean, I really can't tell the difference between this...
