Kat Von D sure has been busy lately!
After years of messy relationships with the likes of Jesse James and Deadmau5, she surprised us earlier this year by marrying a singer named Rafael Reyes.
And after that, she had more big news to share … she’s pregnant, too!
She and Rafael had their big wedding just last weekend, and she’s well into the pregnancy now, judging by the size of her bump in recent photos.
So that’s all nice and sweet and good, right?
It is — honestly.
But while everyone wishes Kat nothing but the best with her pregnancy and her journey into motherhood, a lot of people are a little bit outraged with her right now.
And that’s because she recently took to Instagram to share a lengthy, preachy message about her ideas on raising her baby, and those ideas are more than a little controversial.
Here, let’s just get into it, you’ll see what we mean.
To begin her post, Kat wrote “I knew the minute we announced our pregnancy that we would be bombarded with unsolicited advice. Some good and some questionable — unsolicited none the less.”
“I also was prepared for the backlash and criticism we would get if we decided to be open about our personal approach to our pregnancy.”
She said that her own father was even upset about that approach — he “flipped out on me when I told him we decided to ditch our doctor and go with a midwife instead.”
“If you don’t know what it’s like to have people around you think you are ridiculous,” she complained, “try being openly vegan.”
“And if you don’t know what it’s like to have the entire world openly criticize, judge, throw uninformed opinions, and curse you — try being an openly pregnant vegan on Instagram, having a natural, drug-free home birth in water with a midwife and a doula, who has the intention of raising a vegan child, without vaccinations.”
And there it is.
There’s no issue at all with wanting a natural home birth, midwives are just fine, and as long as you’re smart about nutrition, having a vegan baby is no problem.
But, as you can probably imagine, that very last part, the “without vaccinations” thing, is the real issue here.
It’s strange, because Kat is actually complaining about receiving “uninformed opinions” from people about her decision not to vaccinate her baby, because all the strong opinions on vaccinations are based on, you know, science.
If someone tells her that it’s dangerous not to vaccinate, that’s not an “uninformed opinion,” that’s a scientific fact.
Still, Kat said that her point with all of this is that “I already know what it’s like to make life choices that are not the same as the majority.”
“So your negative comments are not going to influence my choices — actual research and educating myself will — which I am diligently doing.”
It takes literally two seconds to do the research on vaccines, but OK.
“This is my body,” she went on. “This is our child. And this is our pregnancy journey.”
