Pregnant Model Worries About Birthing “Another White Man”

Emily Ratajkowski, on the occasion of her pregnancy, takes to the pages of the increasingly irrelevant Vogue to wax philosophical – in the neurotic, narcissist, virtue-signaling tones perfected by Left-feminists. Good thing she admits to having a regular therapist.

If cognitive dissonance were a board game, Ratajkowski was be a Master.

I tell friends that I’m pregnant, their first question after “Congratulations” is almost always “Do you know what you want?” We like to respond that we won’t know the gender until our child is 18 and that they’ll let us know then.

[snip]

But no matter how progressive I may hope to be, I understand the desire to know the gender of our fetus; it feels like the first real opportunity to glimpse who they might be.

Sometime in the past the Left sent out a memo that the party faithful were to substitute gender for sex and always use it in ways possible to deflect from hard questions. Here Emily wants not to refer to her offspring as a son or daughter until said sprout let’s her know, yet in the next instance admits that knowing the sex of the unborn child will be important in preparing to understand that son or daughter’s needs.

Because it is important. Men and women are not fungible and while each individual baby will have their own personality, likes/dislikes, talents and temperament, gender stereotypes are going to still crop up because those stereotypes are based on real life differences between the sexes. Males are generally going to be bigger, taller and physically stronger than females. Females are generally more risk averse than their brothers. Shove the whataboutism aside for a minute. Exceptions don’t break the norms. If we are not allowed to address general trends or traits readily observable in populations, then all studies looking at gross data are impossible.

Emily’s essay reveals the danger of the Woke Pregnant Person. She tries holding up the Progressive 57 immutable genders but sex is a myth rule while listening on the sly to all the moms and dads passing on their own lived experience.

I don’t necessarily fault anyone for these generalizations—a lot of our life experiences are gendered, and it would be dishonest to try to deny the reality of many of them. But I don’t like that we force gender-based preconceptions onto people, let alone babies. I want to be a parent who allows my child to show themself to me. And yet I realize that while I may hope my child can determine their own place in the world, they will, no matter what, be faced with the undeniable constraints and constructions of gender before they can speak or, hell, even be born.

Poor Millennial Emily hasn’t gotten out of her Manhattan progressive bubble enough to know that the give your boys dolls and your girls trucks strategy of standing athwart the Patriarchy is a failed throwback to the 1970s. A competent and caring parent will be sensitive to their child’s preferences, but forcing children to play with toys they don’t care for is going to cause a lot more trouble

One Swedish school got rid of its toy cars because boys “gender-coded” them and ascribed the cars higher status than other toys. Another preschool removed “free playtime” from its schedule because, as a pedagogue at the school put it, when children play freely ‘stereotypical gender patterns are born and cemented. In free play there is hierarchy, exclusion, and the seed to bullying.’ And so every detail of children’s interactions gets micromanaged by concerned adults, who end up problematizing minute aspects of children’s lives, from how they form friendships to what games they play and what songs they sing.

And what would a good pregnant Progressive do in order to further cement their commitment to The Cause? If you’re a rich, successful New Yorker of pallor, start feeling guilt over your Privileged White Man in utero:

I’m scared of having a son … I’ve known far too many white men who move through the world unaware of their privilege, and I’ve been traumatized by many of my experiences with them. And boys too; it’s shocking to realize how early young boys gain a sense of entitlement—to girls’ bodies and to the world in general.

Whatever privilege Sprout Ratajkowski is born with has little to nothing to do with genitalia or melanin. Sprout’s privileges will be – American, married-two-parent family, wealth — long before we get to what shade of beige she or he meets on the Pantone color swatch set.

Emily seems oblivious to her own privilege unironically appearing in a stylized, professional photoshoot and video, with ample display of slender nudity while a majority of pregnant women struggle with swollen ankles, double chins, weird pigment blotches and stretch marks.

Thanks, Emily. Do write some more of your emotional struggle with being pregnant. Too bad your therapist is failing you because by now he or she should have told you that privilege here isn’t the problem. Nor is whiteness. Your child will be “privileged” regardless and the way to make sure he or she is well-adjusted is to center gratitude in their life. A grateful person doesn’t operate from entitlement. A humble person doesn’t operate from arrogance.

Reject the Left is the first step. #WalkAway Do it for your child.

    Idiot like this should NOT reproduce… They really are using the movie “Idiocracy” as a “how-to” guide

  • NTSOG says:

    Call children’s protective services immediately and have them ready to take the baby at birth. She’s not fit to be a parent; she’s still not an adult in Mind.

  • Lloyd says:

    This dame is a complete idiot! She should not be allowed to reproduce. Her child will be brought into a world devoid of normalcy!

  • Some Guy says:

    Proving once again, models are people to LOOK AT, not to LISTEN TO.

    This bimbo got rich because she had above-average tits and ass a couple of years ago. Yeah, she’s going to fuck up her kid’s head to serve her ego, but at least he’ll have access to high quality drugs.

  • HMCS(FMF) ret says:

    But… but… she’s one of the “beautiful people” that we should listen to!

    If she was so worried about birthing “another white man”, she shouldn’t have dropped her panties…

    Exceptions – by definition – prove the norms.

    they will, no matter what, be faced with the undeniable constraints and constructions of gender before they can speak or, hell, even be born
    Yeah. As in hormones. You are already influencing your child with your hormones. Heck, your body helped to determine which sperm even fertilized your egg, possibly helping to determine its biological gender. And, yes, no matter what mental sickness you inflict on your poor child, it will be limited by its genes – will it be able to write its name in the snow while wearing pants? That ain’t a choice.

    when children play freely ‘stereotypical gender patterns are born and cemented
    No, they were born when… well, when they were born. And, yes, how you’re born should probably be how you live (as the homosexuals used to tell us).

    concerned adults, who end up problematizing minute aspects of children’s lives
    And there is the problem. Adults with nothing better to do than meddle. And adults who are actually commissioned and paid to meddle. To f* with and f* up other people’s lives.
    I’m with the Khmer Rouge on this one: send them to the farms to work.

    I’ve known far too many white men who move through the world unaware of their privilege
    And I see entirely too many progressives (of whatever shade or color) totally unaware of their privilege of living in such a successful society that they can even navel-gaze like this.

    I’ve been traumatized by many of my experiences with them
    Bullsh*t. You’ve been traumatized by your weak, worthless self.

    Your child will be “privileged” regardless and the way to make sure he or she is well-adjusted is to center gratitude in their life.
    And make them work for whatever they get. It will help produce gratitude and humility. Which is something in VERY short supply among the ignorati technocrats and celebrities. (Aside from blacklisting, the reason you don’t hear as much from conservative celebrities is because most of them are humble and don’t think their every utterance should be trumpeted to the world.)

    Careful now. Y’all are starting to sound like Sanger talking about mental defectives being taken out of the gene pool! 😉

    I’ve heard Emily speak off the cuff before, and in more informal interviews. No way is this article in any way her own thoughts or her own words. What a vapid, vacuous person.

  • Cameron says:

    White Privilege (n): A make believe term originated by liberals to justify their poor life choices.

    And I’m honestly feeling bad for the kid. He’ll be in therapy in his teen years or his mom will pressure him to become a girl so mommy can get invited to the cool kid parties.

  • nomen nescio says:

    How does the father feel about this? She does know who the father is, right?

    Right?

    Oh.
