“A ship under sail and a big-bellied woman, are the handsomest two things that can be seen common.”

-Benjamin Franklin-

 

Today I heard this story and almost chocked on my coffee:

First of all let me say: Wow! The strength of women all over the world has been proven a hundred times over, again. After reading this story I had a discussion with a friend of mine. He is a third year biology student and told me that, by nature, all men are

attracted topregnant women. Please don’t get me wrong: I would never deny that nature is at least as strong as nurture, but I don’t share this opinion. I believe that pregnant women are something to admire and protect but feel attracted to them: no thank you. Not even if she is usually extremely attractive.

I wish the new mother all the best of luck and hope that her child will run with her in a few years.

As I have refrained from any sexist statements this entire time I have to end with one: You see ladies? Pregnancy leave: completely unnecessary!
