    6. Hindi oa yun, at yung nagtatanong ang insensitive.

    7. 1:20 sensitive if one reacts after being asked once. But if you’re at the receiving end of the same question over and over again, maiinis ka din. And also, it’s the person who’s asking who should be more sensitive with asking personal questions like that because the answers might cause pain for the woman.

      Delete
    8. Just like Solenn. She and Nico have been trying rin to conceive but now lang naging successful ang pregnancy.

      Other couples also try kasi natural pregnancy and IVF. Yung iba, tatanong lang kung kailan.

    9. 1:20am walang masamang magtanong pero kung paulit ulit na at andami dami na nila. At ang kulit kulit na nila. Nakakarindi na .

    10. Anon 1:20 im sure isa ka sa mahilig magtanong ng ganyan. Yun rude and insensitive questions like kelan k mabubuntis, kelan kayo papakasal ng bf mo, bakit ang taba mo ngayon, bakit wala ka pang jowa. Those questions will never be asked ng mga taong may breeding.

      Delete
    11. 1:20 Hindi OA. In fact she was actually polite pa. Rude na rin ang paulit ulit na tanong. To me same level ito ng rudeness at pagka lacking in social grace as comments on weight at pagiging single. It’s about time Pinoys learned this.

      Delete
    12. d mo lang alam feelings ng mga babaeng nagttry so hard to get pregnant tapos mga tao pa sa paligid sasabihan kayong "ang hina nyo naman. Wala p bang laman yan? Dalian nyo na at hindi na kayo bumabata."

      Delete
    13. Excuse me Lang 1:20. You don’t know what someone is going through — fertility problems, personal choices, etc. it’s none of your business. It’s not about being “sensitive”, it’s about RESPECT. What’s so OA about what she said? She said it in a nice manner pa nga.

      Delete
    14. 1:20 well it's rude to ask these type of question. Naging norm lang naman yan dito sa pinas dahil sa mga chismosa nating tita. Which should be stopped already.

      Delete
    15. 1:20 ang tawag dun tactlesss or better nga yung rude siguro.

      Napanood ko lang sa movie ni Jodi dati, pag tinanong ka ng mga ganung rude question ibalik mo din ng tanong like “ikaw, kelan ka mamamatay?”. Hahaha

      Delete
    16. Di pa kasi uso sa pinas ang gender sensitivity lalo na sa press. Heller, ni hindi nga mahiwalay ang personal sa professional life ng mga artista ang press con questions!

      Delete
    17. Anon 1:20 it’s not polite. No one has the right to ask that question to women. You still have that Dark Age mentality. Where are your manners?

      Delete
    18. 1:20 hindi OA but rude definitely.

    19. Anon 1:20 Have you been in the same situation that people around you kept on asking you the same question when you’re going to have a baby? And them not knowing what you’ve been through Or going Through? Na baka nakakailang ivf ka na or iui or you’ve done everything you could but still no baby? If you’ve been there then baka di mo masabi na oa yun or sensitive lang si Anne. Because I know I’ve been there and still going through it.

    20. 120...bat ang taba mo? bat ang payat mo? bat wala ka pang boyfriend? tomboy ka? bat wala ka pang girlfriend? bakla ka? bat di ka pa buntis? bat andami mong anak...bat ka tita?

    3. True that! Ugaling gusto malaman lahat. May friend na itatanong saan ka nagtatrabaho, ano position mo, may kotse ba, ung bahay rent or owned ... parang helloo te, Hindi naman ako nag aaply ng loan sayo kung makatanong ka...

      Delete
    4. Nakakainis tong ganito. Tuwing makikita ka, O wala pa ba? Ang hina nyo naman. Naunahan ka pa pa ni ano. Bilisan nyo naman. Seriously, as if naman mauutusan mo ang katawan mo na sige magkababy ka na now na.

  9. It's actually impolite to ask that kasi parang too personal and intrusive. Other people may say na sensitive masyado yung naooffend when asked about these questions pero sa true lang, ano bang pake natin sa mga celebs/tao sa plano nila when it comes to pag-aasawa at pagbubuntis? Wala namang tao na in control 100% niyan kung kailan nila mahahanap yung "the one" nila or kung kailan sila magcoconceive so papano nila sasagutin yung tanong? Pag tinanong kailan ka magbebaby masasagot ba ng tao yan na "bukas" o "next week" "next month" etc?

    1. Not all women CAN have children kaya sometimes sasabihin nila it is their choice to not have children. That is the reality. Dami ko kilala na ganyan. Defense mechanism nila.

    4. And they need that defense mechanism dahil sa mga ganyang tanong

    5. 1:02 Not all women can and not all women want to. I for one DO NOT want children. Why? I don't like children, I can't stand them. Sadly some people can't conceive and I don't blame them for telling people that its their choice not to.

    6. 1:02 FYI, hindi naman defense mechanism lang yan. not all women WANT to have children even if they CAN. meron talagang ayaw magkaanak.

    12. Sobra. Parang wala kang karapatan maging babae, a married one at that, kung wala kang anak. Napaka backward thinking pero karamihan ng elders sa atin ganyan ang paniniwala with matching lecture on human anatomy eh sila tong kailangan ng lecture on etiquette and breeding.

      Delete
    13. Agree 2:57. Masaya ba sila na meron silang anak? Or marami silang anak? Nabubuhay mo ba sila ng maayos?

    14. Yung iba nga 2 anak nila, pero kailangan umalis at mag-ibang bansa kasi wala or kulang ang pera nila para sa kanilang pamilya. Kaya to each his own.

    15. 1:02,bakit parang ayaw mo maniwala na hindi lahat gustong magka anak? Oo, may mga babae na talagang AYAW, at hindi lang dahil hindi kaya.

    16. 1:41 same here. I do not want to have children but unlike you I like kids. PERO ayoko ng responsibilidad. Ala alaga ng pamangkin ok lang pero iyong ako na ang magpapalaki wag n lang.

      Delete
    17. Why is it so hard to grasp that some couples don't WANT children, and not just because they CAN'T? I know people who prefer to not add more to the population or juat do not like kids and that's perfectly alright. Bakit ba ipipilit ang panganganak sa iba? There are sooo many unwanted children tapos pipilitin mo yung kaibigan mong ayaw na magkaroon? Why? It's not like you're going to financially support these kids while growing up. You're just an observer. Mind your own life.

      Delete
    18. Not everyone should have children, even if they biologically could. Mahirap ang buhay ngayon, halos lahat mahal. Mag ipon ka man paano pag biglang may emergency? Why not adopt? There's NOTHING WRONG in not wanting to have kids. Ang dami jan ginagawang investment for old age ang mga anak! So wrong, so very wrong.

      Delete
    19. @1:02 Excuse me, are you still living at the past?
      May mga kakilala akong mga ayaw mag-anak or even mag-asawa at hindi yun defense mechanism.
      Mas mukha pa nga silang masaya at contented kesa dun sa mga may asawa at anak dahil sabi nga nila less stress.
      Grabe makahusga lang ano?

    7. Hindi sa pagiging sensitive yun. Hindi lahat ng babae kumportable na pinaguusapan yung mga ganyang topic dahil napakapersonal niyan. Kung wala kang empathy sa mga babae either lalaki ka kaya di mo gets o di kaya babaeng may asawa na't anak kaya kebs na sayo kung matanong ka ng ganyan. How about women who wants to have kids pero ang tagal bago mabiyayaan? Or mga gusto na magpakasal pero hindi makatagpo ng matinong lalaki? How do you think would they feel everytime natatanong sila? Maliban sa nakakapressure eh parang ipapafeel pa sayo na there's something wrong with you kasi di ka magkaanak o dahil ayaw mo pa mag asawa.

      Delete
    8. In this topic kasi, may babaeng hindi mo alam kung ano pinagdadaanan nila para maka buo ng baby. So you have to respect them and be sensitive. Hindi lang to issue ng pagiging sensitive masyado. Try to read that interview kay Gabrielle Union's miscarriages nang magets mo lalo. 🙃

      Delete
    9. Nakakaoffend naman talaga yung palsging psgtanong sayo ng paulit ulit. Kelan ka ikakasal? Ang tanda mo na! Kelan kayo magkakababy? Tumatanda na kayo mahirapan na kayo magkaanak! Kainis na lang din paulit ulit na tanong. Just leave them be to live the way they want.

    10. If you find it insensitive, malamang isa ka sa mga taong matanong sa kapwa mo.

    11. Anon 12:57. Hindi sa bawal ang magtanong pero ilugar. Etiquette ba. Ang mga personal na questions hindi mo iyan tinatanong ng basta-basta sa tao. Pakiramdaman mo muna yung kausap mo. Tanungin mo muna sa sarili mo kung close ba kayo? And even if you’re close to that someone, ask yourself if it’s necessary to ask such personal questions. And ask them too kung okay lang ba sa kanila na magtanong ng personal questions. Huwag yung tactless.

Tapos pag may kamaganak ka imbes na kumustahin ka ang sasabihin sayo eh bakit wala ka pang anak? Ako gustong gusto ko ng magka baby pero sa 2 years na di pa din kami nabibiyayaan ng anak.. Tapos ibng tao ang laging tanong sakin kelan ka magbaby bakit wala ka pang anak,. Sakit nun sa feeling..Nakaka depress na halos..

    18. 2:44 ako hindi artista pero tinatanong at kinukulit kelan ako magkakaanak. Friends ko na bagong kasal at kahit 10 years na kasal, tinatanong din. So ano ngayon point mo?

    20. Artista sya malamang kpag nagkababy sya maglielow sya sa showbiz, kaya tinatanong para malaman ng tao ang appearances nya. Maraming tao ang nawawalan ng trabaho kpag nagkababy ang big star like her. Remember may serye dpat si Juday with Richard Yap, Toni and Piolo serye, maraming natengga dahil nagbuntis ang mga bida. Gets? Big star sya kaya sya tinatanong.

  13. agree with this, Anne! kudos to you for speaking on behalf of every woman. it’s rude to ask someone those questions i.e. when are you getting married, when are you going to have a baby, why you don’t have a baby. everyone has different timeline and priorities. let’s respect that and not let society dictates us.

  19. It's one of the most tactless thing to ask. You never know if the person is already struggling to conceive, or if she lost the baby. They're just being quiet about it. It's not right to ask when, because it's not something you can force to happen.

I just want to be the cool & rich aunt who pops up once in a while sa family gatherings. I'm okay with not being married, and if I do get married, I'm not even sure I want kids. So thank you, Anne, for voicing this sentiment so well.

  21. Karamihan sa mga pinoy mahilig makipag compete sa isat isa. Pataasan ng ihi. Kaya sa gatherings lahat tinatanong, ano work mo, magkano sweldo ko, may boyfriend/girlfriend ka ba, ano work ng bf/gf mo, bakit di ka pa nangkakaanak. Dami dami tanong. Pero ang ultimate goal eh para icompare ang sarili sa kamag anak. Kaya ako naka unfriend talaga mga relatives ko sa fb ko, tapos pag nagtatanong sila nginingitian ko na lang. kainis lahat pwede tanungin, mga trivial things na hindi naman ikakaunlad ng buhay ng isat isa.

    Tapos yung mga tita, nanay, lola napaka backward, akala mo ang purpose lang ng babae ay manganak at magasawa. Wala naman masama dun pero may mga babae din na gusto magka career at hindi un pure selfishness. Pag walang asawa or anak kahit super successful ng career mo tingin nila ang sad sad ng buhay mo. Tapos sasabihin pa, buti pa si ganito naka tatlo na. Care ko ba, naka tatlo nga nakapisan pa rin at nakaasa pa din sa magulang.

    It doesnt make a woman less of a person kung wala syang asawa at anak at a certain age or if she chooses not to have one. May kanya kanya tayong pananaw at gusto sa buhay. Respect na lang.

  23. I echo Anne's sentiments. I just got married and, when I see friends or acquaintancea or relatives, yun nalang palagi ang question. And when I say, "no plans yet," iniinsist pa nila beliefs nila na kesyo it is better if I have a baby soon at naglelecture pa ng women's health and other things. So intrusive. Di ako celebrity and I feel harrassed by these questions and unsolicited advice; how much more sila Anne and other celebrities who get hounded by this everywhere and by everyone?! I can just imagine.

    ReplyDelete
  24. Asking questions like that to women is like telling them na dapat ngayon na mag-anak na sila or dapat mag-asawa na agad agad. Na para bang napag-iiwanan ka but they're saying that indirectly. Societal pressure. Kaya I support Anne for calling out the media and sana even ordinary people would refrain from asking na rin mga ganyang tanong na in the first place, wala naman silang dapat pake.

    ReplyDelete
  25. Tama naman kasi. Lalo na mga kamag anak mong tsismosa, kelan ka magaasawa? Kelan ka magkaka baby?

  26. That is so disrespectful kasi—- why pressure women? Women now are far different from women 30-20 years ago. We didnt get married because we want to gave children right away. We want dreams achieved with our partners..we will get pregnant when we are ready.

  28. Korek! I remember almost a year ako bago mahuntis and everyone is asking kelan daw kami magkakababy. Little did they know we were already undergoing some test and treatment for infertility. Then nung nabuntis ako 3 months after the first baby (unplanned) may mga mema parin na wag na daw muna ako mabuntis! Gosh! Walang mapaglugaran ang mga tao! Buti nalang di ako sensitive masyado.

  29. Not just the press but everyone should stop asking women when they are gonna marry orbhave a child. It pisses me off when people tell me, "mag-anak ka na, ano ng edad mo." like hello! It's God who decides. Tama si Anne, it will happen in God's perfect time. At tama sya, you don't know what women are goinf through. Napaka insenstitive kase ng mga pinoy, they ask and comment on too personal matters.

  30. Good job Anne for saying that. It's about time someone has to shut down these intrusive questions. Society dictates that a person should study, get a job, get married, buy a house, have kids and build a family. If you are smart enough, you should realize you don't have to follow that stages in life everyone is doing. Live your life as you want it. You don't need to get married and have kids if you don't want to.

    The reality is people ask questions like when are you going to get married and when are you having babies because they want you to be miserable like them. Naghahanap sila ng karamay sa situation nila. Yes, that's the reason why they ask that questions. So if someone asks you that, politely ignore the question and walk away. Better yet, don't attend gatherings of small minded people.

    1. Stop getting triggered by this scenario.It doesn't apply to me or you.It only applies to celebrities who are being interviewed by mivie reporters.Their opinions become controversial and are being published.So stop cimparing your situation to that of a celebrity.With common people,its usually the relatives who ask or your bestfriend but not the public.So do not be onion skinned about Anne's issue against some reporters.

    2. 6:36 Syempre reporters lang ang sasabihin niya kasi hindi naman pwedeng mag mention siya ng may nagtatanong din na kakilala niya. Pero I'm sure they get the message.

    3. We don’t need to be an Anne Curtis or a celebrity to feel offended by these questions. We are all humans. That’s why Anne said stop asking such question to all women because celebrity or not we all feel the same pain, undergo same struggles, you know women issues. We are talking about feelings here and not social status in life.

  31. Yes. Let us all live our lives based on our own time schedule. Hindi natin obligasyon to have a boyfriend/girlfriend, get married, have kids kahit hindi tayo ready para lang may maisagot tayo sa mga tanong ng tao sa atin. I really think it's a pinoy thing.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Typical pinoy:
    Saan ka nagaaral?
    Anong trabaho mo?
    Magkano sinu-sweldo mo?
    Kailan ka magkaka boyfriend/girlfriend?
    Bakit wala ka pang BF/GF?
    Kailan ka magaasawa?
    Kailan ka magaanak?
    Tumaba ka!
    Pumayat ka!

    3. 12:18 Yung first 2 questions siguro pwede pa. The rest, masyadong intrusive. Paano kung may personal reason na hindi niya gustong i-share? Alam mo ba kung gaanong awkward yun? Ako nga tinatanong kung kailan magka BF or asawa, tapos sasagutin ko na wala pa akong balak, titingnan ako na parang may mali sa akin!

  35. It took us 8 long painful years bago kami nagka-anak ng mister ko. In those years, ilang failed procedures. And yet, when people see us, even those in the know, they keep asking kelan kami magkaka-anak, bakit ang tagal daw, etc. It was too much so that pag may okasyon, we just skip them. We avoided gatherings and parties. Pag pasko at bagong taon, nood na lang kami ng sine. It was a very lonely and isolating period pero we'd rather have that than the constant badgering. It was also an eye opener for me as a Pinoy. Ngayon, I am careful about asking questions and have become more sensitive. Meaning, I steer clear of asking personal questions unless the person volunteers the information themselves. Even then, I quickly change the topic kasi I know what follows next. Ikaw naman ang kukulitin to reveal private information. In other words, mas lalo akong naging introvert.

  36. Dito sa Uk, sa work ko pa lang, majority ng mga lalaki lalo na babae hndi lang s ayaw mag anak, ayaw talaga nila s bata. Kaya dito napakalaki mong mangmang pag ang isang taong may asawa tatanungin mo ng ganyan

  37. A coworker just asked me this question today. And when I told her na it just wasn't in our plans yet, she said, "Ah, trabaho siguro muna inaatupag ninyong mag-asawa. Siguro andami mo ng pera ano?" Gusto ko na talagang sagutin ng pilosopo kaso mas matanda siya sakin at ayokong maka insulto.

  38. I have been married for almost 2 yrs and we are trying for a baby pero wala pa din. Nakaka-insecure and depressed sya sa totoo lang na wala parin month over month pero i choose not to share our battles coz its a sensitive and deeply personal matter to us. Kaya i feel what anne is saying here.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Because Anne married not just to have children but she married because of companionship. Pra legal cla ni Erwin. If dadating ung baby, then good. If not, so good parin. Wag nyo itulad kgustuhan nyo sa idol nyo. People have diff reasons why they marry someone

  40. Most of the time I dont agree with Anne, pro at this aspect i do. She felt pressured nung sya na lang hindi pa kinakasal that time..then nung kinasal nya..baby naman ngayon. George, Isabel and now Solenn is pregnant..sympre dba..she had always expressed her slef of wanting to be a mother. 1 month sila ng honeymoon pero wala pa rin. so lets all be a little nicer malay natin baka may pinagdadaan sya..

  42. ang tanong na kung kelan ka magkakababy ay pareho lng sa tanong na kung kelan ka mgaasawa..nakakairitang tanong. napaka insensitive ng mga taong panay tanong ng ganyan. Meron ngtanong sakin, asan daw ang asawa ko.. in the first place wala aqng asawa, npakabastos ng tanong, at napaka insensitive. mas tamang itanong ang: may bf/gf kna ba?..

    ReplyDelete
  43. Naku that's true, naranasan ko na din yan. Or ganyan yata ang thinking ng mga Pinoy. Na pag nagpakasal anak agad. Nakakarindi kasi kapag paulit-ulit na tinatanong at nakakasakit na minsan ng feelings. I got married at 30 na kasi, bf ko for 3 years, noong di pa kami magpapakasal bakit daw pinapatagal pa. Noong married na kami bakit daw 6 months wala pa kong baby. Kahit choice namin muna na mag-ipon pampagawa ng bahay. Nakaka-pressure ang mga tanong na ganyan sa totoo lang, parang malaking kasalanan kundi ka mag anak agad.

    Loob loob ko, sino ka para sabihan sa Akin yan? Hawak mo buhay ko tita ay Tito? I will get freakin married when the times come and I’m blessed to a baby Edi good. It’s all about timing late man or maaga.

    Yan ang ugali Pinoy na hate na hate ko. Marami na ako kamag anak na tinarayan becaus of thet questions kasi paulit ulit na Lang. Pwede naman kamusta kana? Hinde Iba na ngayon una kita pa Lang sayo “Ikaw na kelan ka makakaanak at asawa” diba.

    Kahit sa mga friends ko wala pa baby I don’t ask it careful ako I wait them if sila mag open when they plan to have a baby.

  50. Tama ung sinabi ni Anne. Pero may konti rin kasing problema sa part nya. Tama. Sikat sya, public figure, she aged na, at marami na rin syang achievements. Nakakapagtaka lang kung bakit d pa pinaplano mgkababy? I know her fans excited na rin dun eh. Kelan pa? Dati din inaaway ko ung mga pinepressure sya. Pero tama paulit ulit na rin kasi so dapat kumilos na si Anne. Dapat malaman ng fans nya whats happening.

  56. Una sa lahat, huwag magtanong sa iba kung kelan nila gusto maganak, dahil hindi kayo ang bubuhay hamambuhay sa anak. Kaya third world tayo taghirap lower class wala pinagaralan wala trabaho madami anak hindi kasi pinagiisipan nakapako sa makalumang tradisyon na dapat anak lang ng anak magpadami ng lahi.

  63. Ganyan talaga ang typical pinoy. Una tatanungin ka: "kelan ka magkaka-boyfriend or girlfriend?" After that, tatanong naman ng "kelan kayo ikakasal?" Pag kinasal na, "kelan kayo magkaka-anak?" Well, natural lang naman magtanong. Pero yung paulit-ulit na lang na parang sirang plaka, siyempre nakakairita. By the way, I find that most foreigners are not like that. During my travels to other countries, hindi sila ganon. Hindi sila masyadong nakikialam sa buhay mo. Minsan magtatanong pero after that, hindi na uulit. Siguro mga chismosa at chismoso lang tayo. Hehehe.
