    Child birth is definitely more painful...
    I mean imagine not only having to push something the size of a watermelon through a tiny little hole for hours and then if that doesnt work the aftermath of a c-section is incredinly painful, they force you to get up and move shortly after they have just stiched a gaping hole in your stomach. But the fact that youre carrying another human inside of you for 9 months, the effect it has on your body is dreadful, you constantly geting pains in your back from carrying so much weight, you can only lie in one position, your ankles and feet swell up. Its not fun being pregnant. Getting kicked in the balls probably doesnt last for more than 10 minutes whereas childbirth can last for more than a day. I know i was quite a big baby when i was born through c-section.

  • Lola Valentina Devalier

    Idk to be honest, I agree with the video, but it should be considered (when trying to compare the two) like they said, labor lasts and average of 8 hours, whereas, not that I would know, but getting kicked in the balls lasts significantly less time.

    As a man, when I get hit in the nuts, depending on how hard obviously. I become weak, I fall onto my knees, my stomach hurts but I have never been hit hard enough that I vomit. Has happened to others before, seen it, don't want to experience it. Lol

    The men say our childbirth pains are all in our head, we should kick them in the balls, telling them the pain is all in their heads.

    My humble opinion: a kick in the nuts may be a slightly more intense pain, but it goes away rather quickly, whereas women in labor need to endure the same pain non-stop for around 8 hours. So, I think women win this one

    Girls get periods and cramps and headaches and feel a lot of pain every month! Then when we get pregnant we have e to squeeze a CHILD through our vagina. Boys don't know what it's like to even have e a vagina then to pop a baby out of one hurts like hell

    One might hurt more than the other think about it.
    You have to deal with several pounds in you uterus
    Potential heart burn
    Extreme back pain
    Shattering of pelvic bones
    Leg cramps
    Dusk of falling and killing the body or breaking a bone
    Head aches
    A diet/ no medicines
    And much more, and that’s just pregnancy
    Every 90 seconds a women dies giving birth
    You tear your, you know where
    You could bleed to death
    The only pain relief is more pain
    Labor can last several days
    And then the after affects
    Stitches you know where
    Extreme stomach pain
    The burden of breast feeding
    Going to the doctors all the time
    Ripped vaginas
    And just pain in your stomach and vagina in general
    Getting kicked in the balls hurts, I feel you guys and I’m sure it hits worse than getting hit in the breasts let’s list a few affects
    Flat out burning
    Nausea/ barfing
    Potential injury
    And well that’s it. I know it hurts really bad but even if it does hurt more than giving birth it still doesn’t add up to the pain of the whole process. Plus all the time I see guys messing around hitting each other in the balls or themselves in the balls. You might be asking, women say all the time “let’s have another kid” but men never want to be kicked in the halls again, why? Well you get nothing from being kicked in the balls and after childbirth you get a baby

    Getting kicked in the balls hurts more but lasts for a few minutes or secs

    HTFC 4LIFE 8 days ago +1

    I'm sorry but I'm a man but I can imagine giving birth hurts at least 10 times more... however getting hit/kicked in the balls happens way more often and has no positive outcome. Since no one person can go through both pains no one really knows. Being a man it severely hurts being kicked in the balls or being hit with anything, for example a football, however giving birth lasts way longer.

      +Grace Barraclough I know it can cause ripping I've gave birth twice but our bodies are made for it so to me it's natural.Its not natural to get hit in an organ.I always say I plan to give birth as many more times as my body will allow but I'd kill anyone who hits my man in the nuts.Yes the nuts may not rip but they can rupture or get testicular torsion,plus every hit there kills sperm.

    • Grace Barraclough
      Grace Barraclough 8 days ago

      +Rare Gem yes pain is subjective but I guarantee you if this could be tested that giving birth would hurt way worse. You literally rip when you push the baby out and it takes weeks to heal. Theres no ripping when getting kicked in the nuts.

    I myself am a man. Last year my wife came up with the idea to give me one of those birth simulators, that pain is nothing I will forget. Sure I’ve been kicked in the balls before, but that barely compares to what I experienced. So yes, birth hurt more. Maybe we should start accepting women more, knowing the pain they have to go through to bring life into this world.

    here is my argument so being kicked in the nuts can happen every day. and it srsly feels like u have the flu and then the pain. for child birth happens only every 9 months but labor can last for 4 6ish hours sounds like it hurts soooooo i honestly do think there are the same amount of cons with both but I still think women have it worse.

      Albino Cockatiel 17 days ago

      David Perrier It could, but it’s extremely unlikely for men to die. More women die from childbirth due to the bones around the hip having to move, and shock. If men weren’t “designed” to get kicked in the nuts, why were they designed to hurt so badly then?

    It's hard to argue this because (cis) women can never know how it feels to be kicked in the balls, and (cis) men can never know the pain of childbirth. Since I assume balls are sensitive, it can be EXTREMELY painful for a short amount of time. Then it just becomes numb? Like I've never seen a man lie on the floor for hours after being kicked. Childbirth however would hurt for A LOT Longer since like the video said, the whole thing happens over 8 hours on average. That means it can be more for some people. Feeling that amount of pain for 8 hours can be unimaginable, especially since you also have to get the baby out at the same time. In my opinion I think childbirth would be more painful, but I do believe that being kicked in the balls must also be extremely painful too. Feel free to argue with me or share a view.
