A lot of men (and even women who hadn’t tried it) just could not understand why many pregnant women complain about difficulties in being pregnant despite having a normal pregnancy.
For instance, why do women complain about their heavy bellies when babies can’t be that heavy, right? Well, wrong! Aside from a pregnant belly feeling heavy, it actually affects not just your balance but a lot of things in your life, including challenges in putting on your shoes and picking things up from the ground.
Now, in Japan, women do chores five times more than men – and while workaholic husbands do bring in more money for the family, this puts a lot of burden to their wives. And the same thing is applicable not just in Japan but also in other countries.
But in Japan, they made a special device that allows the men to experience a bit how it is to be pregnant. While they don’t get implanted with babies (that would be impossible, of course), they are made to wear a strap-on piece of clothing that represent the weight and the shape of a pregnant woman’s belly and breasts during pregnancy.
This resulted in more empathy and compassion for women!
