    Women had a longer life expectancy than men... until feminist got them out working in jobs like men... then their life expectancy dropped. It is however, the worlds most "underappreciated" job.

    Ask any single father how hard parenting is... I bet he still has a job and complains about his dick of a boss before a word about kids. Many many many women just want to stay home and raise their children, just don't fuckin lie about it. It's fine if that's what you want and you and your husband agree. Don't pretend that you're sacrificing so much more by doing it.

    Wow. As a stay at home mother I find this to be extremely rude and hateful.
    If I’m in my pjs all day, guess what, it’s NOT a good day. It means that I have literally not had a second to put on clothes. Think about what that’s like for a minute. Not having a second to take care of your basic needs as a person: getting dressed, brushing teeth/hair, showering every now and then, eating, actually getting sufficient sleep at night (more than two hours slots)
    How about that whole “bend at the knee” comment? So many mothers have chronic pain due to lifting (I am actually recovering from a back break and motherhood doesn’t stop just because you have a disability)
    Did you know that 1 out of 5 mothers suffer from Postpartum depression and that suicide is the leading cause of death for new moms.
    Lastly, if motherhood wasn’t so very hard, then why is the age at which people are choosing to become first time parents older and older? Sure women want to have careers but don’t tell me that the fact that motherhood is hard isn’t a factor. After all, everyone likes to say that other people’s children is the best birth control.

      @Jessica Predium Choose, either t have children or go to work. Today both mom and dad go to work bc of finance, freedom, etc., and children are all messed up. Women feel overloaded and they scream like bitches at their kids, husband AND coworkers. I hate working with them. Women cause half the problems themselves. I'm a woman and I've seen this consistently my whole life.

    Majority of bully breeds are actually so so sweet and affectionate. The reason they get a bad rep is because people get dogs they don’t know how to raise so the dog becomes uncontrollable. Kinda like shitty kids that have shitty parents. It’s not the kids fault 🤷🏻‍♀️

    Sadness part is Bill Burr mentioned in his podcast that he had to get rid of his pitbull he loves so much, because his wife and him was scare if heaven forbid his baby daughter gets hurt while he was on the road. His pitbull lives with someone else now. He was a complete messed the day he had to give it away. 😞

    Women have to be mothers all the time that's why they can't be ice-road truckers. They have to do a job which just eliminates their life experience. How many people die doing their jobs is far less than number of women choking their dreams, being a mother. That's why it is the toughest job. If you have decided to be sexist, please, come with something more layered and intelligent. Now, people will be like "you are an SJW, you got offended at a joke." but see, a joke is a part of a discourse and this person's opinion. He thinks like that that's why he jokes all the time, normalising patriarchy. That bothers me. Sorry.

      @Noah Rose oversimplify everything to ignore the inequality. _Victim mentality?_ That's the problem! These post truth makers like _The Daily Wire_ take a very small population of crappy women/other marginalized groups (I don't know if it's not propaganda then what it is) and EVERY FUCKING VIDEO IS MADE FROM A RIGHT WING mentality, which just takes one example and oversimplifies and generalize everything. Your language shows you're into these SHITTY things too much. Secondly, that the problem, he has just oversimplified that thing according to his understanding and presented it as some fact. _Being a mother is a toughest job_ means it is imposed on an entire fraction of population. You said being a mother is a woman's choice. Really brother? They don't completely have the abortion rights! They are called "baby killers" and witches if they do so. Procreation is the law of a race, so please don't come with any Ben Shapiro argument here. We as a race will continue. Women who don't choose or can't have babies are seen as BAD and inferior. I can tell you by experience. People these days are just relying on internet and biased people's opinions rather than books. You're a result. That's why you have the arrogance to start your point with "you're an idiot." K. Bye.

      Dude, you're an idiot 😂. You realize ice road truckers, OTR Trucking jobs, Military, Police... You are those jobs all the time. But unlike Being a mother you aren't going to die at any given moment and have your entire life wasted. So what they have to put their "Dreams" on hold? The troops or truckers have to put their entire lives on hold and may lose them. And another thing, you can prevent getting pregnant and fucking up your dreams, yes you don't have to sign for these other jobs but they aren't playing victim because they signed for them unlike mother's. So if you got pregnant and now are a victim, you don't deserve your kid to begin with. So, very popular opinion, you're a victim mentality dipshit advocating for more victim mentalities. Motherhood may be hard but it's preventable and it definitely isn't the hardest job in the world.

      Yeah, I understand that. But they chose to be a mother. Most of the people in actual dangerous occupations don't go around telling how hard or how dangerous their lives are and how many people they may or may not be saving. I don't find him super funny either, I just smile at the best bits, but that's my personal opinion. But people have put motherhood at a pedestal, when it's something normal and something that women choose to do.

    Bill Burr, as usual, gives us some good comedy kush. However, I think that most people in this comment section don’t realize why most moms say their job is hard. It’s their child that they’re taking care of. It’s not the actual tasks that are hard, it’s the psychological pressure and constant worry over the littlest things; the speculation over whether what you’re doing is right for them; all because they love them. They’re likely the single most influential figure in their child’s life, and while it’s rewarding, is mentally very taxing.
    Biggest problem for the gap in understanding is yall can’t relate unless you’re a parent. Pets and plants aren’t the same as children.

      Exactly. If you don't give a shit about your child, then motherhood is the easiest thing out there. But if you want to raise a good and happy child, well, that shit takes a lot of work. It is difficult.

      I think I would say I adopted it. I know when you buy an animal, that's technically adopting too ofc, but adoption puts more emphasis on rescue animals. And yes. Rescue. You've rescued them from a life of hunger, loneliness, pain, cold, etc. You give them a good life
