I have to sigh every time I go to my hairdresser. She is my age, married and has a young adult daughter, I do too but mine is maybe 7 years younger and not dating yet.
Always telling me how she teaches her daughter that "she is the prize" . I have to really hold my tongue when I hear this...I'm more about the equality thing myself.
I have lived through some terrible workplace feminism. Most management were women. I was married to one, and worked there. The Girls tried everything to split us, and it finally worked.
And here's this lady today telling me how this boyfriend, and others in her daughter's past are silly simps. So I gave her a gentle lesson...I said, "Do you realize how many parents are divorced today?...and how many of these kids (Boys in this case) don't get much time around their dads, so all they see is what goes on during tv shows, songs and what their moms approve of?"
I hope she got the hint, as I'm really tired of it. There's a reason men are the way they are today. As I grew up in the seventies I heard the women talk on tv and tried to follow their lead. That was a very big mistake, it was complete BS. Like I said, I'm a believer in the Equal thing. But I sure do have trouble controlling my impulsive mouth at times like this.
