Sort of OT – Stop it! Just stop!
For the love of God, please stop passing this stupid poem around. I’ve noticed it a LOT on FanFiction when I’m reviewing stories and checking out profiles of members I come across.
If the Critics United, Lawlclan, Defenders, Eliminator, the Literate Union, Fanfiction Renaissance and the rest of them really want to do something, how about targeting the members of FanFiction who have this stupid poem in their profiles rather than their stories? I want to bash my head against a tree every time I see it or get that stupid email chain sent to me.
Actually Little Foetus, you could not, since an eight week old foetus does not even have a thumb to suck and no, a foetus still cannot talk. Nothing magical has happened in the past month to suddenly allow a foetus to talk.
No matter how you try, a foetus will still not be able to talk, not even at twelve weeks. If my university bio classes still hold true, it sure as hell can’t understand complex or even simple emotion since at this stage, synapses in the brain are only starting to form. In other words – it doesn’t have a functioning brain developed enough to understand anything, let alone know its a boy or it can talk.
If a foetus at this age could talk and understand, we’d be raising a generation of genius kids. Instead, we’re stuck with an entire generation that thinks your and you’re can be used as the same word.
Again. At month four, the foetus can’t turn its head. Some foetuses can kick at this stage, but that’s not exercise. It also certainly cannot flex its fingers and toes. It’s a myoclonic jerk at best. It’s definitely not Pilates.
This entire poem showed a perfectly sentient foetus who felt everything and was talking and speaking. I’m sorry but if I ever had a two month old foetus talking to me through my uterus, I’d swear and be damned I was carrying the next Damian from The Omen. For the record, my daughter never spoke to me in utero. She did give me one hell of a case of heartburn right up until the delivery.
This is completely factually inaccurate. Foetuses and embryos cannot talk, a foetus is not aborted after six months just because daddy doesn’t want mommy’s baby any more and whoever wrote this garbage clearly has no understanding of human foetal development whatsoever. I suggest that anyone who reads this immediately Googles human foetal development and learns how foetuses really develop.
Oh right. Then it wouldn’t be as heartwarming as this one is.
