if you are having/had a c-section would you mind someone asking why?

Would it bother you if you had brought up a subject with a complete stranger about your c-section and they asked why you were having one out of curiosity? 

Not trying to change your mind, just to know. 

For example the question might be stated as,

"If you don't mind me asking, why are you having a c-cection?"

something along those lines

I sometimes come off mean/rude, please don't be offended I really am trying to be nice.

 I've had 2 c sections and I don't regret either!
No, I wouldn't mind, just tell them WHY... One was emergency (1st) second was elective.

i dont know WHY someone would ask (speaking of a stranger/not friend/family for example)..unless they were going to be forming some sort of opinion about my birth experience and then likley telling me about their opinion lol.... so yeah i might be like "yo! nunya biz foo'"

 Well, hopefully I will never have one again, but I wouldn't mind at all because I would be absolutely positively sure it was a necessary c-section next time around or I wouldn't be having one. =)

A complete stranger wouldn't know how I gave birth.

I was asked that a million times, and yes it drove me crazy.  It was medically necessary with my son (and we knew that months in advance) but every time someone asked me that I felt like I had to hurry up and explain myself so I didn't get looked down upon.

Seems kind of strange that a total stranger would ask something like that.... Why would they care? I don't know how I would react because I didn't have anyone rude enough to ask me.
