Ann's Answers to this Unlikely Scenario

I’m gonna have some fun here. I was reading my Entrepreneur magazine and there’s a quick one page article Women 2.0: Where Do Women Really Stand in the Tech Industry? I’ll let you read the article. My thoughts on this is that obviously women stand in the same exact position men stand…however, stay tune for another post from me on this point.

But here’s where I’m going to have some fun. They quote Elaine Wherry, the co-founder of IM website Meebo, saying, “I’ve heard horror stories from other [women], like venture capitalists asking if they’re planning to become pregnant”

Here are a few of my replies if I were asked the question:

VC: So, we are wondering if you are planning on becoming pregnant?

Me: Hmmm…are you planning on becoming pregnant?

VC: No, that’s a silly question

Me: My thoughts exactly


VC: So, we are wondering if you are planning on becoming pregnant?

Me: Are you asking me if I’m practicing safe sex?

VC: (Blank Stare)


VC: So, we are wondering if you are planning on becoming pregnant?

Me: You mean besides this pregnancy?

VC: (No answer)

Me: (Pause for effect)

VC: (No comment)

Me: I mean, isn’t the birth of Why Go Solo enough?

The birth of WGS is like bearing 4 kids and adopting 10 more at the same time.
