Couples’ pregnancy shirts are a divisive topic online as some find them cute and others find them unbearably cringy. This week a Thanksgiving-themed set produced by It’s Your Day Clothing—featuring the paired phrases “I’m so stuffed with a little Turkey” and “I made the stuffing”—proved too much for one Twitter user, and it has spawned a whole series of memes to brighten up your Thanksgiving.
It all started when Twitter user @dylaneatswings pointed out the weird hypocrisy of wearing T-shirts like this. The phrase “I made the stuffing” is pretty much a statement about ejaculating in the pregnant party—something that would be completely unacceptable in any other context.
Dylan’s point clearly resonated with people because the tweet quickly went viral, jumping platforms to other social media sites as well, as people took his point and well, made it much more gross and explicit, tweeting photoshopped phrases like “I’m the cum man.”
Some didn’t get the problem, or the joke, pointing out that making a baby is “more beautiful and amazing than just knowing which one of you pitches and which one catches.” Everyone else was there to explain that yes, that’s the entire point of the tweet. Pregnancy announcements really don’t need to involve jokes about semen y’all, even if it’s also a Thanksgiving pun. Especially if it’s also a Thanksgiving pun.
It wasn’t just the blatant ick factor of the shirt that bothered people either. The poor construction of the metaphor led Twitter users to all sorts of upsetting connotations that they then decided to share with us all. Is being cucked by a turkey really the message you want to send at Thanksgiving dinner?
Some people made queer, non-reproductive versions of the shirt, just to really drive home how utterly weird it is to wear something like that.
As is by now traditional, the queer community decided to check-in and ask if the straights were OK.
And apparently the answer is no. Fair enough, it’s been a hard year.
