Creeped Out

You know how you encounter something online by pure chance and then think, “God, please make it so that I never have to cross paths with this person. Or anybody like this person. And if I have to avoid leaving my house to achieve that, just tell me and that’s what I’ll gladly do”?

Here is an excerpt from a statement that made me feel this way today:

We have a dog, he’s 3, we adopted him from the shelter at 3 months old. He is a german shepard mix. . . not sure what though. . . My question is, would he fair better seeing me birth? Would he understand what is going on? And appreciate the new baby more, by being there for it?. . .

So what do you think? Do you think our dog would bond better with DD by being around, seeing me progress, and seeing the baby in the first hours after?

I just find this very disturbing.

          1. I just did. Oh. My. Fucking. God.

            “Placentophagy, or consumption of the placenta, has been reported for decades to help stop the baby blues and diminish postpartum fatigue. Some women have cooked the placenta in a stew, mixed it into a smoothie, or even taken it raw to tap into its powerful effects. For many who feel squeamish about this or want to reap the benefits of placenta for more than just a day or two, there is another option: encapsulation. Powdered placenta has been used in Traditional Chinese Medicine for centuries. ”

            I need to go vomit right now.


  1. Right, Clarissa. “By pure chance”. What you really mean is, “I encountered it stalking the blogs of people I allegedly can’t stand.”




    1. Sorry, I don’t allow blog promotion without my express permission. The blog you quoted is one where I left 1 or 2 comments in the course of its entire existence. And only after the creepo in question posted my photo. Without asking my permission, of course. If that amounts to “stalking” it, then what do we call what you are doing?


  2. Back a long time ago when I was a kid there was in circulation a half-assed argument for not neuter/spaying the pet to the effect that a pet having a litter can help teach the kids about the “facts of life.” Apparently there are some who see human reproduction as instructive for their pets. I guess it comes full circle.
