Do you know anyone who still thinks women are lesser than men?

IE, women shouldn't go to college
women shouldn't work
women shouldn't wear pants
women should do the cooking/cleaning/childrearing
women aren't as intelligent as men

Or other crap like that?

  • My aunt was sort of like that. They were very strange and sort of lived in a Amish sort of way. Called Mennonites. She has since changed but still has strange ideas about things.

    They thought we were strange b/c we wore pants and public school. ;)

  • Yes. My best friend Jen's husband. He talks down to all women like they are idiots. He never allows her to do anything without his permission. Even the smallest of decissions has to be run by him first. It's sick. I wish she would leave him.

  • I know some people who think women are not as important as men, none of the work they do (be it at home or a paying job) is acutal work, that a man can run around all night without a word to his wife, that every shred of parenting is her responsibility, etc.

  • Yep. They're a dying breed in America, though. However, take a look at Asia and the Middle East...

  • I know plenty of people like that unfortunately. Thankfully my hubs isn't one of them but instead is actually very feminist (more so than me even LOL). I've noticed a lot of moms like that on here though, which is really sad because they are teaching their children to think that way by insisting that there be such a seperation of mother & father.

  • That doesn't mean lesser. It means different. Well, except for the "less intelligent" bit. People are smart in different things. Men and women are different, and that's a good thing.
