"So what do we have? We have women who expect the world to be given to them, and when it isn't, demand special treatment and affirmative action to get it. They want a man who will do everything she asks of him and more, without ever showing appreciation or gratitude for him."
"And if women want a real man, then they're going to have to find it in themselves to be able to respect him, to appreciate all he does, and to work as hard as he does at their life, whether inside or outside of the home. I think most men are willing to do just about anything for their wives, if they knew that she was grateful and appreciative. Is it too much to ask to take our egos down a few pegs?
If women want real men to re-emerge, then they need to make themselves worthy of them."
This post says I this, I that but have chosen to write it and there are plenty of other women who have been through the same, to show, not all of us females are assholes to our men, but a lot of us do get treated like dirt in return. They were not Real Men in first place.
First to admit I am not perfect. But I sure as hell appreciated my man going to work, was there at home to meet him, genuinely happy to see him home (in the beginning), have clothes ready for when he wanted to shower, got him a cold or hot drink whatever he chose, had his dinner ready for when he wanted it served , the children were always bathed and all housework was done BEFORE he came home. The bed was made, no dirty dishes in the sink, no dirty laundry left anywhere, no dirty floors. All toys put away. Never, ever once did I belittle or talk down to any of my partners in front of anyone else, if something had to be said it was done in private. I worked shift work and used that money to put towards bills and items for house. I made his lunches for work, made sure the work clothes was ironed, at times I would scrub them by hand and end up with skin missing from my hands. I stood by him through thick and thin.
I would do it all again EXCEPT this time, I would make sure I never got beaten, strangled, pushed through windows,forced to engage in unwanted sex, have a gun held to my head, ridiculed in front of friends and family.
Yes I want a man who can show me good old fashioned values and be chivalrous, in return he will get a woman who will honour him, respect him, show faith and loyalty, appreciate and love him. What he wont get is a victim.
Rachel Lucas says it best of all the posts read.
This is why when posts get done about how women want real men and how women should smarten their act up, please don't include all women in that, NOT all of us have hairy armpits and treat our men like shit. A perfect reason why Germaine Greer and her cronies ideals are nothing more than a waste of oxygen.
P.S...SO STILL, WHAT CONSTITUTES A REAL WOMAN??
