Her womb is none of your business…

What kind of society do we live in where a woman cannot even go to work without being harassed?

It seems that when a woman gets to be of a certain age their womb becomes the business of the entire community, and apparently the intrusiveness of the people in that community knows no bounds. Even the people you work with seem to think they have the right to dictate what you do with your body. When you go to work and have the state of your womb questioned on a weekly basis, I think we got ourselves a problem.

So you are 26, and you just go married, the next logical step is apparently to immediately pop out a kid right? So why aren’t you pregnant? You have to be pregnant, you are pregnant, right?

In case you haven’t realised, this is not ok. It is never ok to ask a woman if she is pregnant, or to assume she is pregnant just because she is 26 and recently married. Heaven forbid she would like to pursue her career or enjoy her newly married life before she decides, on her own, what to do next.

That’s right, it will be her decision when or IF she decides to have kids. It will not be the decision of society, regardless of society’s attempts to force her into the misogynistic stereotype of what she should be doing with her body.

She will decide what to do with her womb and when to do it. You have no say in what she does with her body, and you have no right intrude in those decisions. You cannot ask her if her womb is occupied, you cannot ask if she is planning to occupy it soon, and you cannot tell her she should be occupying it.

Especially when you work with her and she has to put up with this every day at work, she shouldn’t have to put up with this intrusive misogynistic bullshit from her peers. People who should be her equals are treating her like a walking talking womb, who’s only purpose now that she is married is to become a breeding cow.

Yeah, that’s not ok, that is never ok.

A woman is not just a womb, she may have a womb but that is her business, not yours, so quit asking about it. Try treating her like your equal and minding your own fucking business for a change. Did you ever think that a woman might be capable of making her own decisions? Or that she is ENTITLED to make her own decisions about her body? She does not need your unwanted input.
