Evan Rachel Wood is once again slamming media intrusion.

Last month, the pregnant actress blasted paparazzi after a photographer snapped shots of her baby’s ultrasound picture.

On Thursday, Wood took to Twitter, first wishing her husband Jamie Bell a happy birthday, and then turning her attention to the press.

“Fyi. No one knows the sex of our baby. No one. I am hearing rumors there will be reports of the sex but its truly based off nothing. Sorry,” began the star.

Wood then wrote, “The fact that we live in a world which condones the stripping of basic human rights (dignity, privacy, etc) of people because of their status, is very sad to me. We should have higher standards for ourselves as people and a society,” adding, “Especially when children are involved.”

“Please remember that before you pick up a tabloid,” continued the actress. “Don’t fuel the fire or promote the bullying and ridicule of your fellow man.”
