Man UP, Girl

Haven't posted in ages, and I come back with a bitchy post. Ah, true Ali fashion :)

You know what I don't like?

Girls that can't do anything for themselves.

The ones that can't open a jar, hang a picture on the wall, check their oil, pump their own gas... It's not like I think you should be able to rebuild an engine, bench press 200, or knock a guy out with one punch, but geez!

I'm no idiot - I know that sometimes the damsel in distress card can be played to our advantage. Sometimes it's nice to feel taken care of, or to make a man feel like they're coming to the rescue. I could meet my husband at the door in a dress and pearls and have dinner ready on the table too, but it would primarily be for roll-playing, and it would most likely end in sex.

But I can't stand when women play their girl card all the time.

You're tough! You're smart! And unless you are a complete idiot, you should be able to figure most things out. Don't be so damn lazy. Don't resort to the 1950s version of a woman. Wikipedia or Google that shit if you don't know how to do it!

I think my husband appreciates the fact that I can do things for myself. That I'm not a pushover. And I thank god that my dad pushed me how to learn to do things that maybe a typical "girl" wouldn't know how to do.

I love the fact that I can depend on myself for things. Strong women are amazing.

Wow, you posted! Yay!

And an excellent post too!

Mrs RC is a woman who can handle herself, as I am sure you know. And she has actually stripped down engines in the past - and wanted to knock out guys with a single punch, but they always seemed to back down...

The 1950s British woman was rather different to the US/Canadian ideal - she had been through war, bombing, working in weapon factories, etc. The ideal is more about what society wanted them to be than what they were (over here at least!)

Having said that, anything that ends with sex has to be good! :-)

My mother says she discovered late in life that most tasks don't require a penis.

You are lucky your Dad taught you those things. I depend too much on my husband to do things. I am at the age now that I worry about how I will get along if he dies before me. My Mom (Reggie's Mom too) is a good example for me to follow. She has learned a lot being on her own and if she can't figure out how to do something she knows who to call. I guess I could survive on my own too.
