Stop Asking Women These 8 Questions in 2022

January 10, 2022

Did you see that gist about the guy that got fired after asking his co-worker whether she had started breastfeeding her son? If not, here is the thread for updates. 

See eh, there’s nothing as important as minding the business that actually pays you money this year. So as we unlearn this habit, here are eight other questions both men and women really need to stop asking other women this year.

1. Why are you adding or losing so much weight?

See eh, we’ve had enough threads on why we need to stop doing this. Women add weight and lose weight for different reasons and it’s not your business if you’re not a doctor. The only thing you need to know is what size they are if you’re getting a gift and even that one requires some level of familiarity.

2. Who bought it for you?

You sef, haba! Who bought that dress for you? Who bought that car for you? Who bought, who bought. Mind ya business. Just observe and focus on getting your own.

3. Why do you like wearing so much makeup?

There’s no need to to tell her how makeup makes women age or how you prefer women that don’t wear makeup. If it’s really affecting you, comot your eye.

4. Why are you pregnant again?

Womb watchers, we need you to take a break this year. Let’s give room for people to be on their own journeys without so much anxiety from people that aren’t a part of it. 

5. Who wore it better?

Let beauty exist without any competition this year. If you see two women wearing the exact same thing, just tell them how beautiful they look and move on. There’s no need to do a whole collage and tag them as A or B for the world to pick every time. 

6. So who got you the job?

The “this is a man’s world” mentality is so 1990. Stop! In a world with women as business moguls and industry experts, how are you still asking young women how they’re getting jobs? She used jazz, don’t worry.

7. Why are you always going out?

There’s only one response to this: Is it your daddy’s money? Go and steal it from her now.

8. Do you have a fine sister like you at home?

Why? What is the reason for this question exactly? Because it’s not what? Your business dear. Stop it.
