Interesting how we’re always hearing how shameful and irresponsible it is to be a teen mom.
But we never hear the same messages directed at teen dads.
Or even the words “teen dad”.
It’s almost like society demonizes women’s sexuality and sexual choices while absolving men of all sexual responsibility and judgement.
I’m torn. Concern and sickness are two different things, and even though you could say “Je me sens mal” in either way, it doesn’t feel natural at ALL to me.
Personally, I’d say “Je ne me sens pas bien” for “I feel bad/sick”. I would use “je me sens mal” only if the disease is really tough, at least more important than just too much cake. > “Je me sens mal, je crois que je vais tomber dans les pommes” = I feel bad, I think I’m gonna faint.
To express concern, I’d say “Je me sens coupable” > Je me sens coupable de l’avoir fait attendre = I feel bad, I’ve made him wait. It’s not exactly concern, it’s guilt, but I feel like it’s the most natural thing to say.
And for sadness, we’d probably just say “C’est triste, son chat est mort”.
