A lifetime of watching colleagues and friends - many of them wimmin, hasn’t taught me anything different, never, ever, be a house husband or soy-boy.
What women say they want, and what they actually want, is very, very different. When female friends or colleagues admit to me their feelings about their husbands, and start with ‘he’s a good man, but...’ I know what’s coming next...🤦♂️
By the way, I read Paglia two decades ago and she’s absolutely right and that’s why she is now a pariah to feminists, and has never been invited back to speak on the BBC, after walking out of an interview calling Dimbleby a popinjay - she takes no prisoners.
I’ve something to ad to her famous quote, ‘... if women were in charge of civilisation, we’d be living in mud huts, BUT - we would be sitting on lovely decorative cushions...’ 😬
There are plenty of relationships where a man is a house husband and it works just fine
Have you heard of the phrase "The exception that proves the rule"?
How about this: If I were to say "Men are taller than women", would you tell me I was a liar because there are SOME women who are taller than SOME men? No, you wouldn't. The exceptional situations, because they are rare, prove the general rule.
yet there's plenty of relationships where the house husband wife works relationship works in fact this story would be the exception
What is the ratio of the number of house husband / wife works relationships compared to the more traditional arrangements?
There are reasons you have to be careful about understanding whether you have a representative sample to work from. I do not think you have a representative sample, because the model of relationship you're characterizing as being normal and standard isn't.
how is it not normal for a man to be a house husband it's not the 1950s women work many of these relationships work just fine with the man being a stay-at-home parent this woman's story is only the exception to the general rule that these relationships work
Women have been selected over an evolutionary time scale to be attracted to men who will dominate and protect her.
Human instincts are programmed for men having harems of women, and waging tribal warfare against other tribes to kill all of their men and take their women as prizes. It'll take a lot more time than fifty years to undo all of that programming.
Hell, even modern first world civilization is something that only a small minority of humans on the planet can function in, let alone build and maintain on their own.
Tabula Rasa (the blank slate theory of human psychology) is a lie. Stop believing it.
A man being the breadwinner and the woman being the homemaker has been the historical standard since time immemorial for a reason.
