This is the reason behind Korea’s dangerously low birth rate: Seoul City’s advice when you’re at your third trimester is to prepare food for your husband and prepare his clothes before you go into labor. 남자는 손이 없냐 발이 없냐 @Seoul_gov https://t.co/mfquWwQ3FB— Stingray (@gaori606) January 5, 2021
Seoul City apparently published "guidelines/tips" for what pregnant women should do before heading to the hospital to give birth. This to help S.Korea overcome the issue with low birth rates.
Includes: Preparing dinners and side dishes for 3-4 days, preparing outfits for the family for up to a week, and to try and keep one's husband sexually pleased. Wouldn't want him to "engage in violent sexual activity". Oh and also, please do all the dishes and vaccuum when you get back from the hospital. Need to keep active to lose the pregnancy weight! 🤢
Twitter thread with more details. Beware of rampant sexism ahead!
