Why did we need to wait for validation from a man? Most women can compare working to looking after a baby - most women work before they take maternity leave. So really they should already be able to compare the two experiences.
And he's not even talking about all SAHMs! He specifies 'a preemie' [sic].
I find it so annoying to see women sharing this helpful 'mansplaining' validation.
Yup, thousands of women every day (many of them here on MN!) find caring for DCs absolutely knackering, but man says it's hard work and everyone sits up and listens!
Still, a lot of the time there is a kind of competitive tiredness thing going on, here and in RL, so anything that encourages discussion among men people who haven't experienced both sides of it is probably helpful!
