I was speaking to a male friend over the weekend who imparted an interesting story which sums up the predicament modern men find themselves in and how selfish and unreasonable the
majority of modern women are.
He had come home from work on the Friday as had his wife and both were shattered as they had endured hard days at work. No sooner had my friend sat down then he was ordered (not asked)
to take out the rubbish – as he was tired and didn’t see the urgent need he said he’d do it later or she could always do it if she was that bothered by it. Now to the main point of this tale , her reply , which was “I’m not doing it , it’s a man’s job”.
As you can imagine this response confused my friend as in this age of equality there are supposedly no
such things as men’s and women’s jobs. When he pointed this out he was dismissed out of hand and his wife said if he was too lazy to do it she would get the next door neighbour over to help as he was a real man?! This sums up perfectly the attitude a lot of modern women have to equality between the
sexes. They demand it and impose it when it works in their favour (that is, not having to do all the bad jobs round the house) but would not dream of accepting it the other way round.
As an example of the way this works we shall look at is the response my friend got when he pointed out he would do the bins (and check the car , mow the lawn, walk the dog and all the other ‘mens’ jobs) when she did the washing up and ironing and cleaning as they were ‘womens’ jobs. She practically ripped his head off for being so sexist and unreasonable and expecting her to skivvy after him and his kids (it’s always his kids when she needs to make a point) all day when he was out at work enjoying himself. She expected , nay demanded, the right to spend her days as she pleased as this was her right as a modern, independent woman.
And this sums up the hardship faced by modern man – we are expected to work all day to provide for
our family, come home and do all the jobs round the house and then lavish the last of our energy and attention on our spouse before collapsing into bed to do it all again tomorrow.
