Every man on Earth owes his life to a woman

Every man on Earth owes his life to a woman.

This is a very simple, undeniable fact.

No man would exist if a woman did not do the difficult, dangerous work of incubating him inside her female body.

It doesn't matter if you think your mother was a bad mother. It doesn't matter if she left you on a stranger's doorstep. You would not exist if she did not physically make you.

Ovulation, menstruation, pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding - all part of the biological work women do to continue human life - including yours. Stop acting like they are a sign of weakness or subhumanity. You would not exist without those female biological functions you find so unspeakably gross.

I'm not arguing for matriarchy nor the worship of a mother goddess. I'm simply arguing for recognizing and accepting the fact that every man on Earth owes his life to a woman.

You don't have to "bow down" to women/mothers. Just be mature and honest and grateful enough for the reproductive work that led to your very existence that you won't 1) impose that work on unwilling women; 2) punish that work; 3) denigrate that work; or 4) erase that work.

Thank you and good day.
