Pet Peeve

It wasn’t until I started regularly reading trashy magazines like US Weekly that I realized the use of "bump" to describe a pregnant woman’s belly.   It drives me nuts.  I don’t know why.  Why can’t they just call it a belly?

It’s not a bump. It’s a BABY!!! To marginalise a human being into a fashion accessory by referring to it as a “bump” is repulsive.
