My friend told me today that my wife (yes, I'm a lesbian, not a creeper guy) treats me like her maid. Why? Because I cook, clean, do laundry, and iron OUR uniforms? I cook because we have children and we all like to eat, I clean because I'm not a dirt ball, I do laundry because we like to have clean clothes and I iron because our uniforms have to look good or our Lt will have our asses. My wife appreciates everything I do. She does stuff too. If something breaks, she fixes it. She washes our cars, she does our lawn and we have a huge yard, she grills, she bathes the dog and takes very good care of our girls and me. So how am I her maid? Because I make her plate and bring it to her? Because I rub her shoulders after a hard days work? Or wait! Maybe because I make her lunch everyday for work (while making mine as well)! Do any of you mother's do these everyday things for your family? Do you get ragged on and called a maid? I'm really aggravated over this. Its not the first time I've been called this. Ughhh! OK. Rant over! Lol
**ETA**
I wasn't trying to turn this into an LGBT matter. But the more comments I get referring my rant to heterosexual vs homosexual I'm beginning to wonder. Lol. I only stated I was a lesbian because a lot of people ask if I'm a guy when I refer to having a wife! :) Thank you Momma's for all the nice comments!

Its because you are a lesbian. In hetro couples its called being a good wife. But because you are doing those things for a female and not a male, it is looked at differently. Not that I agree with it though.

I do all that and more.

But I'm a submissive wife and a sahm.

I've never heard any negative comments, though.

Water off a duck's back, my friend.

If it works for your family, who cares what they think?

Haters gonna hate.

Shes been around when its been said. At first we've just laughed it off. Now she gets more irritated than I do over it. She doesn't like it and she's made it known. I know I'm a good wife as she is too. I know I shouldn't let it bother me but its getting old. Really.

Never thought of it like that, but not sure if I want to take like that either. But it does raise question.. ya know? And for the record I am a good wife! =D

Noones really ever said that specifically but some of my hubbies friends have implied that its my job to stay home and do things for him. WHATEVER! No one tells me what to do not even my hubby. Thank god he isnt picky and yes I do do everything in the world for him not because I have to but because I want to .

Fuck them. It sounds like you're a good wife and so is she.

People are dicks, it's nothing new.
