COMMENTARY: Absolutely not! I believe it is totally ridiculous for a women to continue to try to dupe men into believing that giving birth is painful. If it was as uncomfortable as they try to project, no one woman would be having kids. I believe the discomfort is minor, comparable to a mild stomach ache. When I’ve had stomach aches in the past, I took some Alka-Seltzer or Pepto Bismol and after a while, I was fine. But all that screaming! Give me a break! Women do that, with the purpose of invoking sympathy from their man. I suggest, that after a woman has a baby, she does not need around a month off from work. A three day weekend is plenty. (People have often called me an idiot. Hopefully my brilliant/masterful insight on this issue will change that).
