For the life of me, I can't understand why people think it's appropriate to ask a couple when they're going to have a baby. For one thing, it's intrusive as hell. You might as well just say, When are you guys going to be ditching the condoms? Secondly, you don't know what people may want for themselves. Some couples don't want to have children––some women definitely don't want children––and that's totally okay.

After Redditor sirous38 asked the online community, "What is the question you always avoid answering?" people told us all about the questions they get that irk them the most.


Take this question.

Why are you still single?

Because dating in 2021 seems like a nightmare, I've been cheated on enough. Plus, if I don't even like myself how can I expect anyone else to?

And this question (the one I just spoke about):

When are you going to have a baby?

I'm the father of a five-year-old and always get "When are you having another?"

I don't know, when they stop dying inside my Mrs? Your guess is as good as mine.

And this question...

What are you thinking right now?

Ugh, seriously I hate that question. It feels so invasive. If I wanted to tell you what I was thinking, I would. Otherwise, let me exist with my personal thoughts.

How about this one?

I am partially colourblind and everyone I say it to asks me the question, "What colour is this?" After a while, I don't even say that I am colourblind.

And how about this question?

"How was school today?"

Like bruh, I've been sitting in front of a computer for the past 4 hours.

To which this person replied:

It was painful to answer before the pandemic anyway.

cluckclock

This is a big one.

Why don't you talk?

JosJos43

To which this person replied:

That one is like a vicious circle.

If you were building confidence or comfort to say something, that is basically pulled it all away from you just with the question.

Bilbaprophet

Why do people ask this?!

"Ooh you were in the Army, didja ever kill anybody???"

Just stop asking that, please.

Rustyisaboy

And this?

"Why are you so quiet?"

Because I spent my entire childhood either being guilt-tripped, mocked, or outright taken advantage of for having the friggin AUDACITY of having a personality and social needs, and now the only place I can actually articulate myself is with strangers on the internet because I can take the time to think of a response and type it out rather than being put on the spot by people who, in all honesty, probably don't give a s*** about what I think or say either way. At least on the internet, I'm not in the same room when the person reading my responses mentally checks out. That's why.

Frustrating huh?

It might help if people thought before they spoke. That could save all of us some degree of embarrassment and discomfort.

Sex is fun. Sex is healthy. Sex should be enjoyed and always consensual. But often, sex can be dangerous, especially when you're trying out new things, like a new location.

Who hasn't thought about upping the adrenaline ante when it comes to sexytime? We've all been there. But some ideas really should just stay ideas.

Why break a hip or an arm just to make things a little more saucy? Just try a different room in the house, or the backyard, but bring bug spray.

And some areas in public are safety hazards for a reason.

Redditor u/playfulinvestment01 wanted to know about all the places we need to avoid when it's sexytime, by asking:

What is the worst place you had sex?

Animated movies meant for children have been known to sneak in a few dirty jokes here and there. After all, the parents have to sit through the movies with the kids too.

These "Easter eggs" can be found in virtually every movie meant for kids. It may go over our heads when we watch at age 10, but years later when we re-watch to enjoy a bit of nostalgia, we realize just how raunchy the creators were.

It's not just old movies from the 90s or early 2000s, some movies as recent as Frozen 2 have some moments of adult centered levity.
