Man-guide to Informed Questioning

Just in case there is a man out there who is unclear on the concept, here is an informative graphic to guide your decision-making.


Twenty years ago, I asked a woman when she was due. She told me, "I'm not pregnant; I'm just fat."

I have never asked another woman this question.

Why did I have a vision of the same sort of poster but involving a face-hugger and a guy with the end result being a singing dancing alien?

When is it ok to ask a man if he has been impregnated by an alien recently?

I was attacked, about a year ago by a rogue elephant.

Don't believe me? Want to see the trunk? :coolsmile:

I remember an episode of a quiz on Dutch television, where 'the next contestant' was randomly chosen from the audience.
A large woman came walking towards the host.
The host repeated "Oh! I just LOVE pregnant women!! How nice, a pregnant woman in MY show" several times before it registered with him that the woman kept saying "I'm not pregnant."

At my workplace some managers had to explain to a VP from Europe that you never ask; you let the woman tell you first. He couldn't understand why. This can't just be an American thing???

You know, I think I might be pregnant. It's been... God knows how long since I had my period! I promise I won't be oversensitive if I get this question, though.

Yed, Todd, it is an American thing. Over here all the PC crap is pretty much a banquet of ridicule if/when it's even thought of.

This is not the normal pc crap honey. If you ask the wrong not-pregnant woman that question you just might get your ass kicked. Its a safety lesson really.

Come on, the official label for "beer belly" is "male abdominal obesity" and when that occurs on a female it's 99 94/100s pure bun-in-the-oven.

My sister used to reply that she was carrying it for a friend until she returned from the store.

The last picture on the panel should show a woman with a baby being born, and still say NO underneath.

And the proper response from any woman should be:

"Oh, in a few... WHOAH" <fake cringing from contractions> "...looks like ... RIGHT NOW ... QUICK!..."

Hey, if they're gonna make assumptions, make 'em pay!

There is a medical reason why, at times, you MUST ask a woman if she is pregnant, and that is when she is going to handling cat litter. I had to do this in April, when we went away for a week, and our cleaning lady agreed to come in and take care of the cat. I already knew she only had grown children, but she was still of child-bearing age, and I had to ask, "You're not pregnant, are you?" This is because some cats (you can't tell which ones)carry a parasite that is harmless to them, and to adult humans, but is EXTREMELY dangerous to the unborn. This is the only reason to ask.

I have lived too tell I asked 2 women if their were pregnant, they were not and not amused in the least.

For female WUvians, the proper response to a crude "Pick up line" is to look at his stomach and ask: " Is it a boy or girl? It looks due!"

With that line I state that it's an elephant and ask if they care to see its trunk.
