Welcome To The Bitchery

At what point

At what point will people stop saying "welcome to ______" EVERY time I mention my offspring? Where (blank) equals motherhood, having a boy, post partum recovery, etc.

Seriously, when? Because it is such an obnoxious, condescending, dismissive, unhelpful, smug thing to say and anyone who says that can go burn. And actually, that applies to people who say that about anything are as bad as each other.




ETA this reminds me of when I was FORTY TWO weeks pregnant and women who'd had their babies at like 35 weeks kept saying to me "welcome to pregnancy." Fuck yououou.
