Diatribe: I Don’t Think Mila Kunis’ “Kimmel” Skit Was Funny.
I think Mila Kunis is a beautiful actress, she was fantastic in Black Swan and she does a great job providing the voice of Meg Griffin on “Family Guy” but I was not amused when she poked fun at dads-to-be during a recent appearance on “Jimmy Kimmel Live”. During her interview the visibly pregnant actress stopped to make a public service announcement of sorts that was supposed to find humor in removing the role of fathers-to-be from the process of childbirth.
I think I have a pretty good sense of humor but I also find it wrong for a woman to allege that a man helps to begin the process of childbirth and then vanishes for nine months. It’s probably safe to assume that the majority of fathers are present, standing strong beside the mother of their unborn child, to help her in any way that they can and I’d like to think that most mothers-to-be are fine with the phrase “we’re pregnant”.
It’s a fact that fathers don’t experience the physical pain of childbirth but that’s not their fault and should in no way lessen the importance of their participation in the process. And it’s certainly not a reason to poke fun at them.
