I'd even have to say that the oft-compared male experience of pain, passing a kidney stone, probably isn't comparable to childbirth.
Having passed a stone once, it's awful, but it's not trying to spit a 7 pound kid out of your womanhole.
Well, I don't know about that Gomez - I haven't done either but there have been two separate women I've known who have gone through both and both seemed to think the kidney stone was far worse. For one thing, that teeny tiny opening isn't designed to open up to let a prickly rock pass out, while a "womanhole" is pretty much biologically tailored for that purpose. But perhaps some actual women here might have some better insight.
But hey, don't make fun - I was once hospitalized for a crusty-bread induced lacerations in my mouth. God, why they still sell that stuff without a license is beyond me.
Judging from the responses to the alternate historical viewpoint of thanksgiving, I'd say that most people that hang out at this blog wouldnt raise any hell over the comparison appearing in a men's magazine.
There is no difference between the experiences of men and women and why should we pay any heed to history or the reimagining of it?
Everything is just fine. Eat your dark meat and go to the mall or you are just being a stupid bitch. Jeez, does everything have to be so hard??
Any girl who, after eating crusty bread, automatically thinks about childbirth, is probably not "ok".
It is OK to read the magazine but another thing to follow what they suggested there...
BTW... very nice blog!
am i the only one here who has never even considered the possibility of crusty bread injuries? can anyone shed some light?
Well, considering the body kicks out some serious endorphins and lots of other biological tricks to make childbirth less traumatic (ask a woman about it afterwards, she'll be sure it was very bad, but the details will be fuzzy) eating crusty bread just may be worse. Your body doesn't spend 9 months preparing to chow down on a slice of pane pugliese.
David (# 2) is correct - my sister in law has had both, and the difference is that birth contractions come in waves while the kidney stone's pain is ongoing.
Could the Slog moderators remove "Anne"'s affiliate spam message, please? Thanks.
Uh, yeah. Done both. Eaten crusty bread, given birth.
When I eat crusty bread, I don't usually need to hang on to a towel bar and scream, nor do I need everyone in a fifty foot radius to shut entirely the fuck up to the bottom of their toes while I'm chewing.
"I don’t read Glamour, as I’m too busy living it" caused me to choke on my gin and tonic, and snort. In public. Very good.
By the way, Liberty (on 15th) is cool.
So am I the only one who read this and assumed the comparison was "if this little bitty pain upsets me, how the hell will I deal with the real pain of childbirth"? As in, "eating crusty bread is such a minor pain that no one will think we are making a serious comparison".
Eaten crusty bread, given birth, never passed a kidney stone. When a male friend asked me to describe the pain of childbirth, I compared it to diarrhea cramps from hell. But I had really easy deliveries.
I read it that way, too, Lucy. I was mostly responding to Nick W.'s post, though I didn't make that clear.
