So When You Having Kids, Margot Robbie?

There is one question that grates women the most, and that question is, “When are you having babies?” It’s a really obnoxious question and an incredibly nosey one at that. I know a woman who was asked this question during her own wedding reception. And Margot Robbie, in particular, has fucking had enough of this bullshit.

After marrying Tom Ackerly two years ago, Margot Robbie has been frequently fielding the baby question in interviews. And she is finally getting pissed off with this nonsense. During her recent interview with Radio Times, Robbie said:

“I got married and the first question in almost every interview is ‘Babies? When are you having one?’ I’m so angry that there’s this social contract. You’re married, now have a baby. Don’t presume. I’ll do what I’m going to do.”

This sort of scrutiny is bad enough for regular women, but it takes on an entirely different meaning for female celebrities. People like Margot Robbie get papparazzi snapping pictures of their bellies so the tabloids can spew headlines like “Preggers?!” or “Baby on Board!?” no matter how much of a reach it is.

I don’t blame Margot Robbie for being pissed off by this line of questioning. I can’t think of any woman, famous or not who likes being asked when they’re having kids. Questions regarding your future plans for your uterus is fucking rude and the choice about when or whether you choose to have kids is a very personal matter. It’s really unbelievable that there are still so many intrusive people out there who want to make it their business to find out whether a married woman is making plans to shove an eight-pound larvae out of her vagina.

The next time you considering asking a woman (or a couple) if screaming babies are in the future, consider following this rule. Unless you are going to be personally involved in the hypthetical conception of a child, keep your dumbass mouth shut.
