Isn't that what Page Six does, though? I suppose you could object to the use of the term "knocked up," but, if the story about the condoms is true, then I'd say the actresses probably get the humor behind the article.

I see no shaming.

At.
All.


Please tell me where you see it. Is it a tad crude? Maybe....but thereis absolutely no judgement there.

The headline is crass but I imagine all three women are happy and that it’s a somewhat cute story beneath the usual Page Six sneer.

The introduction is crude, for sure. The article treats Kara and Stephanie like a curse has hit the show since the beginning and they treat like it's a bad thing that they give up the shows for families

I think we've moved way beyond the point where announcing a pregnancy is "slut shaming." PageSix isn't sending them to the Magdalene laundries.

Then what do you make of the cast giving JKW a box of condoms? There is no need for any discourse or any outrage surrounding this article, but if there was, i’d raise an eyebrow at that.

Just amazes me how people no longer have a sense of humor and just immediately find things disgusting or negative. Even when the humor is right in your face.

This is quite funny and the package she got is hilarious and shows the sense of humor the actresses have.

Just give the world Love.

Kara Lindsay herself tweeted about it, so, clearly, she gets the humor about the situation:

Now it would be one thing if Page Six figuratively slut-shamed Kara and Stephanie but literally?  I won't stand for it!

There’s zero slut shaming going on, the fact that you came to the conclusion that this is slut shaming is concerning. If anything you just slut shamed them by even bringing up the word slut

Yeah there’s no slut shamming in that at all. It’s tongue in cheek. There’s nothing negative about any of that.

Yeah, this idea that pregnancy is "shameful" and couldn't even be mentioned on tv is so 1950s. Most women are now happy to announce their pregnancy.

I saw this post right when it was posted and kept my yap shut. First, it is Page Six. Second, there is no slut shaming. Third, the gift wrapped box of condoms shows the two actresses got the humor or it...as did Page Six. The article posted about a coincidence and added a little fun to it. I’m not the hugest NYPost fan, but there is nothing ugly here. Move on. Not everything is offensive in these times as much as people want things to be.

This is not slut shaming in the slightest.

Slut shaming??? GET A GRIP.

The fact that the two mothers to be left a BOX OF CONDOMS and a note for the replacement invalidates anything “crude” about this. If anything, Page Six found humor in the actors’ humor and reported on it.

Kara Lindsay also tweeted to Page 6 (I don't know how to copy it because I'm an idiot), something along the lines of "We are women in our mid-thirties who have been trying to have a family, let's be more sensitive about that".  I personally don't see it as slut-shaming, but Kara did mention the headline was strange.

The only thing I found "crude" was using the term: knocked up.  I feel that just has a bit of a negative connotation, like they didn't want to be pregnant.

Jessica Keenan-Wynn posted a screenshot about the condom part a couple days ago and wrote something like "LOL, I wish this was true"...otherwise agree with most people that there's no slut-shaming in the article.
