No it was an anal delivery. Baby slid right out (after the oiled up Guatemalan, of course)

Fun story: I worked someplace with "progressive" parental leave policies, and one of my coworkers had a large number of adopted children. The company's policies applied not only to the father, but also to adoptions. So when he adopted a child he got something like 6 weeks of leave. Which he took and promptly used for a road-trip. During which he visited a co-worker who worked remotely out of state. Everything was great until during a tele-conference said remote co-worker mentioned "<guy on parental leave> says 'hi'" during a meeting where the guy's boss was on the line. The boss was displeased that the guy was using his parental leave in this way, but there wasn't much he could do about it.

I work at a place with paternity leave, but the legal definition only applies to babies once they're in the world. I wasn't allowed to use "paternity leave" to take three days to help Mom get ready for the birth, since I was planning to take Zero days afterwards. Luckily, it was during a slow period, so I just left and no one noticed lol

While U.S. ports faced anchor-to-anchor traffic and Congress nearly melted down over the president’s infrastructure bill in recent weeks, the usually omnipresent Transportation secretary was lying low. One of the White House’s go-to communicators didn’t appear on TV. He was absent on Capitol Hill during the negotiations over the bill he had been previously helping sell to different members of Congress. Conservative critics tried (unsuccessfully) to get #WheresPete to trend and Fox News ran a story on October 4 with the headline: “Buttigieg quiet on growing port congestion as shipping concerns build ahead of holidays.” They didn’t previously announce it, but Buttigieg’s office told West Wing Playbook that the secretary has actually been on paid leave since mid-August to spend time with his husband, Chasten, and their two newborn babies.

These niggaz are literally more often on vacation than doing their jobs. Psooki Long time went on vacation when Afghanistan started falling. bitches

I wonder if that has anything to do with the fact that Twitter never allows stuff to trend if makes the left look bad...

Honestly going on vacation is the best thing we can hope for, these assholes cause way more damage when they 'work'

See, here’s the thing: birth is hard. Like, proper hard. Medically, physically… That’s why women used to die, very frequently, in childbirth.

Hence, women need time to PHYSICALLY RECOVER from said birth, and also to breastfeed the fucking baby. That is literally why the concept of maternity leave was invented, once women stopped giving up work altogether, after they had kids…

Paternity leave, in and of itself… Is kind of bogus, because, hurrdurr, men don’t NEED to physically recover FROM GIVING BIRTH. Sure, you can argue “emotional support”, “minding the baby” and/or “sleep deprivation”, but inherently, such a concept can only exist in a modern, essentially post-scarcity, society…

For Butty-fuck, who ALMOST CERTAINLY WAS NOT PRESENT WHEN THE BABY WAS BORN, or, if he was, he certainly wasn’t there to “emotionally support the (surrogate) mother”, to go on “maternity/paternity/sissy” leave, is just… Well it shows how fucking far, and fast, this society has declined…

Fuck this timeline. We are absolutely fucking screwed.
