I wouldn’t be offended but I feel sorry for the women I know that try to fulfill “traditional” roles. Traditionally their husbands are suppose to be supporting them, leaving them time and energy to care for the household and their kids but that’s not what I’m seeing. I’m seeing a bunch of stressed out women working full-time, part-time, a lot of time, running around trying to keep up with housework, raise children, take care of grown men, etc. These women are running from sun up to sun down and it’s sad, at least to me.

If a woman wants to step up and take on a traditional role because her husband has stepped up and taken on a traditional role, I’m like whatever, more power to you. But when she’s doing half of “his” and all of “hers” I have to wonder what she’s thinking.

That’s just me though. My fiance cooks or eats out, washes his own laundry, cleans his own mess and mine if it’s bothering him, irons his owns clothes, etc. He’s a fully capable, functioning adult and I LOVE HIM for it. I just can’t raise another child.

If other women want to put that S on their chest and be superwoman, more power to them. I don’t understand it but it’s not my life to live and I have nothing to say to them about it. I’m only saying something here cause the question was asked.

@JeffsWifey:  It only offends me when people speak of the traditional gender roles as the way it should be, rather than its what works for them.

I do think its healthy for everyone to question those gender roles, though–and then do what is right for them. I don’t think people should simply fall into any role because they have a vagina or a penis.
