Tiffany Stevenson’s recent Tweet has women and men collaboratively expressing their frustrations with common people “policing” pregnant women on what they should or shouldn’t drink. The public opinion appears to illustrate what seems to be a shadow on pregnant women’s rights, as some people think it is right for pregnant women to be refused products like alcohol and caffeine from restaurants/businesses, while others think it’s a choice only reserved for pregnant individuals.

Stevenson discloses to her followers that in her recent coffee run to Starbucks, she watched a pregnant woman be publicly humiliated as the barista attempted to regulate her Caramel Macchiato order, calling it an “Unbelievable bit of womb bothering in Starbucks.”

Stevenson states that the woman asked for her coffee and the barista said, “caffeine is bad for the baby.” After the pregnant woman said she could have one cup a day, the barista persistently stated, “but you shouldn’t.” Stevenson, who described her reaction as “almost spontaneously combusting,” told the barista to stop, and in turn both her and the pregnant woman received a 5-minute lecture from the opinionated male barista.

The instance caused a Twitter uproar, as people weighed in on the experience, some stating that “it’s none of his business,” while others passionately exclaimed, “I would punch him in his face! “and “stop womb bothering!” The twitter reaction was inflamed with dogmatic stances, as one male commenter specifically asked, “What is it with people thinking they have the right to make decisions on behalf of pregnant women?” Other commenters, however, took an opposite opinion, as one asked “so if the woman was smoking and pregnant, people should mind their own business too?”

The opinions were vividly portrayed, causing a twitter trend, yet, there seems to be a blur as to where the line is drawn between who dictates what is and what isn’t good for a baby. Public opinion on who can say what a pregnant woman can and can’t have is split and has many critics.
