Epic Comments Of The Week: IHTM And Freaks In The Bedroom

By  | 

I’m telling you, it’s incredibly difficult to wade through all of these comments and figure out which ones are the best – because you are all the best, not even kidding. But this week, it was glaringly obvious which comment thread took the cake, as I actually spit coffee on to my child while I was reading through it. I think it was partly karma, for getting so much joy out of using this GIF this week:

Back to the comment thread. The funniest interaction happened in the Mommyish cyber-office this week, which evolved into a post, which evolved into an epic comment thread. The story was about XOJane, and their It Happened To Me articles. Okay, we were making fun of them – but it was just too easy.

We provided a few titles, for example:

1: IHTM: My Baby Sleeps In A Drawer Because That’s Where He Was Conceived

2: IHTM: My Sister Witnessed A Non-Violent Crime And Now I Feel LIke I Can’t Talk To Her About My Period

3:IHTM:  I Got Fruit-Salad Shamed In My Work Cafeteria And Now I Have PTSD

And readers responded. Awesomely.

Moving on.

Today, Bethany compiled a truly disturbing list of weird shit people do in the bedroom, while breastfeeding. Why am I being coy about it, it was a POST ABOUT PEOPLE HAVING SEX WHILE BREASTFEEDING. NOOOOOOO.

I’m always pleased when someone can insert an appropriately placed Giselle rip. Candyvines, you are my hero this week:

I’m pretty sure this unbelievably disturbing story was born in the comment thread of another post, when someone mentioned the sex-during-breastfeeding theme popping up a lot on Babycenter. Here is the response to that:

I love it when my job is done for me;  “lady bits were drier than a bottle of Pinot Grigio” wins everything.
