The Internet brings people together from all over, and of course, all opinions make their way into something viral.
That’s what happened with Domonique and Crissy, a married couple whose YouTube channel is pretty popular. The pair document their relationship to over 1 million subscribers and perhaps made their biggest news recently when they announced that Domonique, known as Domo online, was pregnant with a baby boy.
The couple planned the pregnancy by working with a local sperm bank. “When my doctor called me to tell me we were expecting, that was the day I knew dreams seriously do come true,” Domonique told Buzzfeed. “It still feels like a dream to this day.”
Well apparently, some of the Internet doesn’t believe that a woman who wears snapbacks, joggers and is in a relationship with another woman, should be proud for having a new child. Some people called her “too masculine” to have a child. Whatever TF that means.
Subsequently, Domo made a YouTube video and a couple Instagram posts clapping back at the haters. It was glorious.
“I am a woman. I am a woman who has always wanted a child. I am a woman who likes to dress how she pleases and doesn't give two s***s about your stereotypes.” she captioned under an Instagram post showing her pregnancy progress. “One thing I will teach Domonic is to always be himself and to stand up for himself! So Domonic, mommy is sorry that you have to be born in a world full of hate, but just know that I will do my best to protect you. I love you Domonic Cristopher Wilson. You make me a better person.”
She also said more bluntly, “30 weeks pregnant and PROUD! F**k society and f**k a label.” It’s a message we and the rest of social media can get behind.

People are really bullying me because I'm pregnant and I dress "masculine" 😂😂😂😂😩😂😂😂😩😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂😂— Domo and Crissy ❤️ (@domoandcrissy) January 10, 2017
I am a woman. I am a woman who has always wanted a child. I am a woman who likes to dress how she pleases and doesn't give two shits about your stereotypes. Who cares if I like to wear snap backs and joggers? Who cares that I'm not the "normal" look of a pregnant woman. I am Domonic's mom and I am proud! There's a lot of hate going around with me being a "pregnant stud" which is soooo funny to me. Like you people cry all day "don't judge" or "I hate when people judge" but are the MAIN ONES. I went to a sperm bank to conceive Domonic, and I am so blessed to be able to bring him into this world! He will have the best life. One thing I will teach Domonic is to always be himself and to stand up for himself! So Domonic, mommy is sorry that you have to be born in a world full of hate, but just know that I will do my best to protect you. I love you Domonic Cristopher Wilson. You make me a better person 👶🏽❤️🙏🏽 @thedomonicwilson
