      Regarding the videosubject: Can the clothes handle "severe excessive sweating?" Do they let the sweat evaporate enough? 🤓

        Shame on you, normalizing cesareans in this way. The way that they are becoming routine in America, like circumcisions motivated only by ignorance and hospitals wanting to make fees, is damaging. Cesareans and circumcisions are important procedures in their own way, but their thoughtless normalization is not something I can support.

ABER, wenn du ein Video in einer anderen sprache machst, dann sollte der Titel, auch in dieser anderen Sprache sein. da ich dieses Video Ganz umsonst angeklickt habe, mache ich noch einen Weiteren klick auf den Dislike Button. 🎞️👎
