I absolutely hate the term "gender roles." I also hate they way they are too many often times applied to women. Gender roles were not made up by our society, but by the bible. This is why so many men think and feel that women should be slaves upon them, and wait upon them. We live in a century were patriarchy is in act.

Last week, my brother and I were invited to a group party, which also had children. So, there was around 30 people. All the men were sitting on the couch, and the women were in the kitchen. There's problem 1. Then, the planner of the party was a male. He asked that if you were coming, and you were a boy, bring 1 soda, which is around .80 cents here.

So, my brother brought soda. But, if you were a girl, you were expected to make a dessert, or buy one. If you don't have the ingredients at your house, you must go out and by them yourself, which goes well over .80 cents. Plus, you had to make time to cook the sh!t. Are men unable to do that as well? Why Should the women have to bring the food. It's because women are expected to be slaves unto lazy men, who think everything should be served to them on a silver platter platter. Mind you, this was a church event. So that's why so many men I know are this way. I plan on getting married, and I've talked to my boyfriend about what I would like to do in our marriage. He never once expected me to do anything. He never told me he wanted me to stay home, cook clean and take care of the family. Which I appreciate, very much. ///end rant

Anyway, as a man or woman, what gender roles annoy you, or have pushed upon you, or see everyday?

Woman feeds man, makes man big and strong, man protects woman. Makes sense imo

Some women are quite capable of taking care of themselves.

Yes. So there were way more deserts than there was drinks.

Does that imply that there were more female guests or that the men were not required to bring a drink?

No. There we more females than males. I would say for every guy, there was two girls. So, there were more deserts than drinks.

*Sigh*.

If you assign let's say women to bring food, and men to bring drinks..and you know their are far more women than men...then split it up. Have some women bring drinks instead of a desert.i also don't want to be exected to serve food to men who sit on a couch, and ask me to bring them food without a please. It's annoying. Maybe it's just my family's religion. I don't know.

I think you should care a little less tbh. Still a lot of fun to be had in life, whether you're male or female. Don't get too hung up on questions of who's bringing the soda and who's bringing the dessert

Perhaps the host was not expecting as many women (or men) to show up, and just assigned it that way. Also, you are not required to bring them food, but if it is according to your religion, then I know little about it.

Anyway, as a man or woman, what gender roles annoy you, or have pushed upon you, or see everyday?

I have not attended many parties before, but I have not experienced this problem before. Were you required to bring a desert?

Yes. So there were way more deserts than there was drinks.

Does that imply that there were more female guests or that the men were not required to bring a drink?

No. There we more females than males. I would say for every guy, there was two girls. So, there were more deserts than drinks.

Forgive me, but I'm failing to see a big problem here.

*Sigh*.

If you assign let's say women to bring food, and men to bring drinks..and you know their are far more women than men...then split it up. Have some women bring drinks instead of a desert.i also don't want to be exected to serve food to men who sit on a couch, and ask me to bring them food without a please. It's annoying. Maybe it's just my family's religion. I don't know.

Perhaps the host was not expecting as many women (or men) to show up, and just assigned it that way. Also, you are not required to bring them food, but if it is according to your religion, then I know little about it.

No..this person is in charge of the club. He's the leader. And he knows that in our church general..there are more females them men.. it's quite obvious.

No we are just busy keeping a look out. :D

A lookout to where the next meal will come from?
Some women are quite capable of taking care of themselves.

I had beaten all the female records at my gym 6 months in just saying lol. Some gender roles make a lot of sense.

Just because they seek to make sense doesn't mean they're right.

I think you should care a little less tbh. Still a lot of fun to be had in life, whether you're male or female. Don't get too hung up on questions of who's bringing the soda and who's bringing the dessert

You think I should care less?
I mean..it's kind of hard NOT to care when I'm forced to be apart of a religon I dislike.
Also...it is a big deal. Because I didn't have time to make something...I spent $10 on a desert while my brother spent .85 on a soda..

I hate how some of the gender roles and stereotypes effect me. Many people think, because of the dumb fvck men here, that people tend to ruin things. I hate that people tend to look at us as fvck boys and other type of womenizer. I'm not one of those people who's the whole men's rights idiocy either, and I'm not one of those people who believe that women are automatically subservant to men. I'm none of these things and it's because of many idiots that we have that these get applied and even to me. You yourself know me and know none of these actually apply to me. It's not my fault that I believe these roles should affect the way I interact with other people. In my relationship, I don't care who "wears the pants" per say as I just love her and that's all that should matter.

I know how to cook and clean up after myself. I can cook a great meal and there shouldn't be a reason why men can't cook. Generally it's every man's dream to make enough money so their wife doesn't have to work and can stay home if they want to. Granted that's mine as well, but there's nothing stopping her from persuing her dreams and I encourage her and everyone to go out and do so. If that was the way with me, with it being the other way around, I would be board as fvck.

I don't see why all men can't learn to cook. How are they going to look out for themselves when she's gone away on her business trip or not at home? What about treating her to dinner? I mean seriously.

This could be a valid point. My family is generally different as everyone is suppose to bring something, but generally the wife makes it. Though there are some single men in my family who make food and grill. My uncle, he's single, makes some mean nacho dip and burgers. Granted that's my less religious side of my family. On my more zealout side it seems similiar to what you said, but people are suppose to serve themselves. "I ain't your servant" is a common statement.

That's why China had so many strong, independent womyn. Oh, wait. Surely, feudal Japan... oh, wait. Ancient India? OH SH!T, definitely not... The Middle East? Nope. Huh, it seems that 'strong, independent womyn' have been a rare but consistently present breed everywhere in the world, throughout history, and that most women have been respected for womanly virtues, and weren't terribly upset over the arrangement.

Last week, my brother and I were invited to a group party, which also had children. So, there was around 30 people. All the men were sitting on the couch, and the women were in the kitchen. There's problem 1.

Translation: the natural order.

Then, the planner of the party was a male. He asked that if you were coming, and you were a boy, bring 1 soda, which is around .80 cents here.

So, my brother brought soda. But, if you were a girl, you were expected to make a dessert, or buy one. If you don't have the ingredients at your house, you must go out and by them yourself, which goes well over .80 cents. Plus, you had to make time to cook the sh!t.

That's your job.

Are men unable to do that as well?

I do it all the time. And I don't b!tch about it either. It's called being a considerate guest, and it's something which everyone has the responsibility to do. You should make the best dessert that your capable of, and your brother should have surprised his friends with a bottle of Lagavulin if he could afford it. When my grandmother first got married, she could barely make banana cream pie. Now she is a local legend. Refining a skill isn't a bad thing, being forced to do something productive by social expectation is GOOD.

Why Should the women have to bring the food. It's because women are expected to be slaves unto lazy men, who think everything should be served to them on a silver platter platter.

Yeah, that's why everyone is supposed to help you carry things, hold the door, half-murder people who insult you, get rained on so you can be dry, provide you with a house and clothes and shoes and jewelry. You can't say 'ugh, gender roles are OPPRESSIVE' and then ignore all of the good stuff that traditional gender roles gave to women.

Mind you, this was a church event. So that's why so many men I know are this way. I plan on getting married, and I've talked to my boyfriend about what I would like to do in our marriage. He never once expected me to do anything. He never told me he wanted me to stay home, cook clean and take care of the family. Which I appreciate, very much. ///end rant

Anyway, as a man or woman, what gender roles annoy you, or have pushed upon you, or see everyday?

The idea that gender roles are 'oppressive' annoys me.
"The Collectivist experiment is thoroughly suited (in appearance at least) to the Capitalist society which it proposes to replace. It works with the existing machinery of Capitalism, talks and thinks in the existing terms of Capitalism, appeals to just those appetites which Capitalism has aroused, and ridicules as fantastic and unheard-of just those things in society the memory of which Capitalism has killed among men wherever the blight of it has spread."
