BvB: Reflections Hard and Soft


This week over at Beauty vs The Beast, Mimi and Metal Mark tackle the subject of the ongoing court case which has become known as Roe v Wade for Men. They both did a great job and while my opinion is slightly different, I certainly respect their opinions and their arguments were good.

I rarely tackle political or legal subjects here but the pregnancy angle of the story reminded me of a subject that I wrote of in the early days of this blog. (It seems strange to speak of the early days of my blog, when I haven't even reached my blogaversary. But blog time is strange.) So, here is my old post but a word of caution; I am at my crudest and least politically correct on this archived post.


Gut Check

I blame it on Demi Moore who posed for Vanity Fair with her nude pregnant gut. Now we have Britney Spears-Federline splashed all over the net, bikini clad and ready to pop. And it is not only celebrities recently my wife and I were getting a bite to eat at a bar and grill and one waitress was wearing a midriff top, hiphugger jeans, and a pregnant gut with a belly button ring that resembled an all done button on a Butterball Turkey. A friend at the office explained that she had a similar waitress this weekend on a trip to Santa Fe. It's not that pregnancy makes me nervous. It is only a consequence of a natural act but if this result is showcased what is next people flashing genital warts and herpes. Call me old fashioned but the only time a woman should be showing off her pregnant gut is when she is dancing at a nudie girl biker bar plopped down somewhere in the rotation between the toothless chick and the elderly lesbian who's stripping for the annual Tits for Tots charity drive.


Since this story came out I have softened a bit on the subject. My middle step-daughter is due to give birth soon and the thought of being a grandfather has perhaps softened me a bit. I was to late though to get her this gift when she first announced her pregnancy.

Being a Grandad ain`t so bad. I kinda like it myself.
If a problem arises, just say, '' You need to do something about that kid''.

Remember, dirty diapers are better left to the experts ( mom ).

$ 25 for a belly button piercing seem a little high. But, installation should be easier in the latter months.

Don't go for the preggos, hugh, Fuzz? I was doing this pregnant chick (not my wife) in my Mustang outside of her house on one occasion when her Husband came home. Yea, the windows were all fogged and the car was rocking like an earthquake of mythic proportions was going on. The dude just walked by and went in the house. What a soulless prick. So we finished the deed and she went inside and I left. She told me she was happy until I came along. She asked me if I could teach him passion. I told her not without a near death experience. She loved him but said he fucked like he should be in a morgue. i don't know why you ilicit these stories from my past...

Mimi said...

Fuzz a grandad? Your gonna be the coolest!

I am not wild about bellies being shown myself,pregnant or not. A little is okay, but the whole belly being shown is just so old and overdone.

Ha! My word verification has sex in it!

:P fuzzbox said...

phred: I thought it seemed reasonable. Those things have to be crazy stretchable.

ozy: You have led a crazy life my friend. It is a wonder you walked out of that one.

mimi: I like midriffs. I'm just not to crazy about muffin tops.

guerrilla blogger said...

pregnant chicks are a fetish for some...that is a pretty cool gift i think, way better than a coupon for sphincter bleaching...

Green Eyes said...

You'll be glad to know I never flashed my big belly around when I was pregnant.

You've got to admit, out of those that do that, some are way better to look at than others! lol

tubawench said...

As you said, pregnancy is a natural occurence, but so is urination. I don't necessarily need to see either. I don't think that pregnant bellies need to be hidden, but a modicum of taste goes a long way. For almost every body type, there are styles that look good and styles that don't. Pregnant women are no different than skinny women or fat women in this respect. So Fuzz, what do you think about public breast feeding?

Johnny Wadd said...

If there is one thing i know about this, (which is little) is that she should defiantly not have her piercing in while pregnant. She will get the nastiest strech marks ever.

:P fuzzbox said...

gb: Anal bleaching? What a novel gift idea! I like it.

green eyes: Okay, one small admission.

tubawench: If it is done tastefully by covering with a blanket of something then public breast feeding is okay. But when it is just plopped out there, it makes me want to replay a scene from 'Me, Myself, and Irene.' :)

mic: I have never thought of that. Kinda sick huh.

Ben Heller said...

Fuzz- You're mellowing with age. It's only natural being a Grandfather. You'll be hugging Pregnant bumps soon.

Curare_Z said...

I don't know why those women WANT to show their bellies. I haven't had kids yet, but my friends that are pregnant say they feel like crap most of the time in anything except sweatpants. ;-)

And the belly ring? Whatever floats your boat. But I LOVE the misspellings and bad grammar on that site. K-L-A-S-S-Y.

siren said...

Awww, Fuzz, you're going to be a Grandpa? That's so sweet. Congratulations. Think of all the things you can teach baby fuzz in attempts to get back at your children.

:P fuzzbox said...

ben: I wouldn't bet the farm on it.

cz: Pretty cutesy site, huh.

siren: Pay backs can be rough.

Jim said...

my reaction to some woman's naked pregnancy obscuring my field of vision is exactly the same as if it were some guy's beer gut hanging out, so I guess my aversion is to "things caused by alcohol"

:P fuzzbox said...

jim: I am left speechless. That is brilliant. If there was a blog comment hall of fame then that one would hang in a place of reverance. Possibly over one of the urinals where it would get the most reads.

RAVEN the PITA said...

Man when I was pregnant everyone was wearing those big baggy maternity shirts that had not a lick of fashion sense to them LOL I had no idea they had maternity jewelry now LOL

:P fuzzbox said...

Crazy ain't it. Did you check out some of the other items that they had. Wow, the face of maternity has changed.

ella m. said...

Those maternity piercings are still a bad idea. They might make it through the pregnancy itself, but 9 months of wearing a 14 g piercing might stetch the hole out a bit too far once the belly is gone (as navels are usually pierced with a 16g if I recall correctly).

As far as showing the maternity belly, it's not something I'd personally do, as I usually don't flash too much tummy to begin with.
(The blogger avy pic is the exception not the rule).

Anything more than the area above the hips but below the navel showing makes me feel like I'm dressing up like the latest pop tart "singer" du jour.

Keshi said...

goshh I feel so left out in this comments section...Im neither pregnant, never was, and neither a granma :( lol!

fuzz ur not so old to become a granpa r ya? but even if ur, u will be one of the hottest granpas ard ;-)


**what is next people flashing genital warts and herpes.

ewww! ur right Fuzz..I dun like women showing off their bellies, especially preggi bellies...it's kinda pvt and unnatural so they'd rather save it for their bedrooms, not the public.


Keshi.

April said...

But some women are at their sexiest when pregnant...or at least they feel that way.

I'm not saying that I'd go around flashing my belly off to anyone, but if they feel comfortable showing it, by all means do.

Pregnancy is just another phase of life after all.

What about breastfeeding in public?? They are trying to pass legislation to make it not a crime of indecent exposure here in South Carolina for a woman to breastfeed in public. Finally.

It's time we accept that mothers are people, too...and breastfeeding and pregnancy are natural, beautiful things.

Al said...

at least a pregnant belly hanging out is firm. I'd rather see that than a post pregnancy (or just plain large and jiggly) belly oozing out of a 2 sizes too short shirt...

:P fuzzbox said...

ella: Now I know what I want for breakfast. I luv pop tarts.

keshi: I'm 40 going on 41 real soon. So I am old enough but just barely.

april: Like I said, I don't mind public breast feeding if it is done discreetly. I don't flash my pecker around and it is completely natural. What's the difference?

al: That is too true.

Ranea said...

Are you gonna call the baby Peach Fuzz if it's a girl?
I am with about showing a preggie belly. Especially if it's covered with stretch marks.

:P fuzzbox said...

Peach fuzz sounds cool. But you are one sick puppy, that's what I luv about you.

Keshi said...

na I still think ur too young to be a granpa...:)

Keshi.

Thanks :)
