Women are the kind of people who put themselves last. They take care of everyone else and not themselves. They’re nurturers. They take care of their husbands, wanting to not actually “serve” them so much (well…in this generation…I think..maybe they do) but care for them. Cook and clean and provide in a way men kind of need. They have this innate need to do things for other people. Always being of service to others.
I don’t think I’m a woman.
That’s how women, wives, mothers are always…described? I’m soooooooo not like that. I don’t put myself last…probably to a fault. I don’t feel a need to take care of a man. It isn’t in me to want to be like that…at all.
Am I actually a woman?
Or are the stereotypes out there to make people like me feel bad about myself? Feel less womanly? Are there other women out there who struggle to fit that mold as much as I do? I feel like I would be a better wife/mother if I had the DNA for that.
But dudes…make your own damn sammich. Seriously.
Kids. If you can do it yourself then DO IT YOURSELF! I am no slave. Pour your own frickin juice. I’ll clean up your spills or give you a cloth. I’ll guide you through but I’m not going to baby you until you’re 20 and you can’t cook or fold laundry or make adult decisions.
I don’t think I could ever be married to a man who would expect me to serve him. I’d be the worst. He would most definitely beat me and me being me would beat him right back and then leave his ass and find a man who can make his own damn sammich.
It’s a bit funny because my husband’s “love language” or way he expressed his love is through acts of service. Mine is through affection and words. He happens to love me very much and he’ll serve his adorable butt off. I know it speaks to him when I do it back – usually it just throws him off like “you’re actually MAKING me a sammich? Don’t worry hun…let me do it instead.”
Are there other woman out there who don’t have this innate sense of servitude? Almost the polar opposite of servitude without actually having a personality disorder? I have all the anatomy…so can I still be a woman please?
Next week. People with female genitalia who have hardly any innate sense of being domestic short of having a personality disorder. Are they women?
