Been in the military.

Have numerous friends who have been through childbirth and gone TMI on their stories.

Based on that, I’ll take the uniforms and occasionally getting shot at, if that’s okay.

Of course, I also have friends who have been in the military and given birth. So there’s that. And there’s the Meg Ryan quote from Courage Under Fire after she’s been shot in the abdomen and has to deal with the pain: “I gave birth to a nine-pound baby, asshole. I think I can handle it.”
