About my Blog son

Okay, so I'm no professional blogger but, i think I'm pretty freaking interesting, sike. But for real I find cool shit on the interweb everyday now i can have it all in one place, right alongside the randomness that is my life... Be forewarned there will be an excessive amount of profanity at times, that's just how I feel


You Want Me To Do What ?

So my Social Psych class was canceled today and I decided to loaf and watch TV, and I stumbled upon Wife Swap... This show normally tickles me because of the juxtaposition of the families, but for some reason this episode pissed me off... Let me set the scene for you, Eccentric Middle ages obsessed male centered family of Anglo Saxons and A super strict yet somehow social Renaissance woman run household... It sounds like it would be rather entertaining, not really.

The Middle ages family has home schooled children and dress in ridiculous outfits, they also lack a home phone and friends outside of the family. The father only interacts with his children on weekends and when they do have family time it always the fathers choice of activity... On the other side the Afram family is run by a woman that substitute teaches, works in a restaurant and make sure her children respect her authority. The father works the night shift and spends the day caring for his children and the house hold...

My issue is with the blatant disregard for equally sharing gender role related activities... In one family the father is treated as supreme ruler and the son's speaks for his sister... and on the other hand the father does all of the home maintenance and childcare... What I don't understand is why can't people share roles, I've never been an advocate of women staying in the house and rearing the children while an man goes out and earns a living. Conversely a man shouldn't spend all of his time doing house hold chores, basically emasculating him... This is the 21st century I will not push my dreams aside and cater to those of my SO while he goes out and makes the bread for the fam... But I will not take a mate that bends to my every whim and spends all of his time doing things that we should share. I need a SO that stands up to me the same way I do to him... I'm not however, condoning disrespect in any form but traditional gender roles are archaic and turning them on their ear is just as bad...

It's okay to make your SO feel like royalty but don't forget that you're a Queen/King in the process

Reevaluate your relationships people, if you seek a mate that you can easily dominate you have a problem my friend... Equality is key
