I feel sorry for men
Don’t read anything more into that title. Don’t think I feel sorry for men all the time, or that I spend my days wallowing in their pity, sad and alarmed of how difficult their lives are. I don’t. Of course I don’t – it’s still a man’s world after all. But when it comes to being chivalrous – yes, it is a word, and it means being a gentleman – they really can’t win, can they? Damned if they do, damned if they don’t.
Now, this has all been kicked off by a recent report produced by some academics who say that every day life is basically full of thinly veiled sexism. To this I say “…and?” Have these people only just noticed this? Have they honestly only just noticed that the world is full of lies? To think how much they get paid for this scandalous research. Ugh, it makes me sick.
If you ask me my womanly opinion – my only opinion – I will tell you that there’s nothing wrong with a bit of chivalry every now and again, and don’t get that confused with sexism. If a man opens a door for me when I need him to then I appreciate it. Don’t get me wrong, if a man opens a door for me when I am not struggling then I feel a bit odd about that, but if I need help then sure guys, don’t be afraid of me, I won’t bite.
But sadly, we’re now living in a world where Garmin Forerunner 610 shoes cost a weeks wage and men can’t do anything without upsetting someone.
Come on everybody, let’s all relax a bit, yes? Life’s for the living after all, and we can’t very well do that if you keep moving the goalposts!
