English term or phrase: I’m not a baby machine.
Testo teatrale americano (per la messa in scena e non per la pubblicazione). Dialogo tra un padre che vuole un nipote e sua figlia.

Dad, I don’t want to discuss it with you. It’s complicated. And it’s an antiquated position to take anyway. Wanting a son to carry on the blood line.It’s not only antiquated, it’s a little insulting. I’m not a baby machine.

La mia proposta:

.[...] Non sono una macchina per bambini
