C-Section Not Really Childbirth? The Facebook Post That Has Everyone Talking

December 02, 2015 2 min read

If there is one thing we can all agree upon, childbirth is an intense, joyful, frightening, emotional, life-altering experience. Whether or not you have children (or want to have children), we can all stand behind the fact that birthing a child pushes a woman's body to the limits. But the group, Disciples of the New Dawn, have offered a different prospective, one that seeks not only to divide people but guilt and shame women for receiving a medical procedure when no other options were available. While the group claims to offer this image as satire, the target of the satire remains unclear. Have a look: 12294870_582511658569908_4940361630651522637_n [bctt tweet="C-Section Not Really Childbirth? The Facebook Post That Has Everyone Talking"] Understandably, this image has set off a firestorm of responses from women. The vast majority of them speaking out in support of women who have had c-sections, many sharing their own experiences. Many women express that they were devastated to learn they could not have a natural birth -- they do not believe they caught a 'lucky break.' Are women really lessened as women if they don't have a natural birth? Of course not! That would be the same as saying women who don't want to have, or cannot have, children are not women. Women are not 'superior' for giving birth naturally. The ability to carry a child at all is pretty incredible, why should that be derided by the method of delivery? While few opinions were offered in support of this statement, the fact that women feel the need to defend themselves against it points to a troubling problem that runs deep in our social interactions. Women tearing down, and pitting themselves against, other women. The comment sections were full of women supporting one another, but the image clearly sought to divide. It wanted to tap into the space where women go when they criticize another's body, choice of clothing or lifestyle. That space where we all shame and spread negativity because if we point the finger over there, no one will look at us. That space where we judge people just because they did something differently -- like it has any real impact on our own lives! It is sad. There is so much hate in the world as it is, why add fuel to a fire that no one lit? As far as we can tell, this wasn't a debate anyone was actually having! Good satire should have a point. This piece appears not to have one. What do you think of the image? Simply satire or offensive beyond words?
