Now if you've been reading my blog you know that I am not your average woman. I am not all for "girl power" and I'm not a fan of either sex competing against the other one just to prove that they are the "superior sex". I'm for equality for everyone. There is no "superior" anything when it comes to people. We are all people and we are all unique in our own way.
So, to continue with my original point. I think that all able body people should know how to do these basic things. Having the knowledge to cook or clean or go grocery shopping has nothing to do with if you're a woman or a man. Now whether you do these things or not is, again, a completely different story. I mean if you're an able body person that can function and live on your own and you don't know how to cook or clean or go grocery shopping well then....someone failed you when it came to teaching you about the basics of living on your own. I mean really that's what it comes down to. These are things you should know if you are going to live on your own.
I'm just tired of people thinking that because men are men that they don't know how to, basically, take care of themselves. Society and media teach us that a man needs a woman to take care of him. Because apparently it's a woman's job to be the caretaker. A man could never take care of anything, not even himself. For goodness sake people, men are human beings just like women. They know how to take care of themselves, at least they should know how to. Everyone should know how to take care of themselves.
What it all comes down to it is this, in a relationship you take of each other and you take care of day to day responsibilities together. By saying that men don't know how to cook or clean or go grocery shopping implies that these are not things men could do, that these are things women do. When it comes to taking care of the basic household chores both men and women know how to do them and should. Share responsibility in your relationships.
Does your husband/boyfriend/partner know how to take care of basic household chores? If so do they do them?
