Recently my dad asked me if my partner minded that I never cooked him meat and “forced” my vegetarian diet on him.
My dad usually knows better, but we were out on a walk on a lovely snowy day and the great outdoors must have made some of the patriarchal crap stuck in the darkest corners of his brain come out without having been filtered.
I lost it a little.
I’m nobody’s maid.
The fact that women don’t just blow their lids more often is astonishing considering the amount of sexist BS they have to deal with on a daily basis.
Although, when they do try to defend themselves and set the record straight on what’s appropriate for a woman to hear, they are likely to be told “don’t be so emotional”, “stop being so dramatic”, or the ever-so-infuriating “you have no humour whatsoever”.
So, think about what you’re going to say before you open your mouth to talk to a woman. If you would not say it to man for fear of sounding stupid, just don’t say it to her either.
