My 9th grade biology teacher called babies the ultimate parasite. They take nutrients from your body and don't do you any good. They harm without helping you at all. By definition babies are parasites (nothing against them at all... though the crying does get tiring!)

That was actually my argument in a debate class I was in... I was also known as the jokester in my grade also in highschool so people thought I was just being funny... but damnit I was being serious.

Actually, by definition a parasitic relationship has to be between 2 different species. Therefore a pregnancy does not fulfil the criteria. Besides, having kids is just freakin' awesome.GRATS BASIL & WIFE!!!!!

It is between two different species: human, and poopfactory. @_@

Baby not doing the mother any good? Just plain nonsense. Women are never ever in their life in a healthier state. Their body is a life machine, and it shows - their skins glows, their hair grows thicker, their nails grow stronger.

@Kinetic, yes I find nothing makes a woman more attractive than morning sickness, constant fatigue, a pelvis that is quite liable to just split in half, stretch marks and reflux! not to mention all the fun side effects of many complications of pregnancy... add in being on a hormonal rollercoaster that alternates between bawling eyes out and extreme irritability. Oh there is the occasional woman who literally blooms with pregnancy, but she's a rare one... ;)*spoken by someone who is 8mths pregnant with her second child, trust me, they may spout the myth about pregnancy being beautiful and skipping through daisies, but honestly there are some parts that just plain suck.

Well my biology PROFESSOR said it's amazing that the female body doesnt attack the fetus as it is foreign tissue. We still don't know why it doesn't.

Yeah, but from an evolutionary standpoint, passing on your genes is your main purpose in life. So from that perspective, they do give you something.Of course, as the father of a 2 month old, it would be nice if they could also give you a cold beer when you get home from work.
