The two main catalysts to the feminist uprising in our Nation’s history was the fight for a woman’s right to vote (prior to 1919) and, of course, the never-ending argument over who is doing the dishes.
There’s two words that feminists really hate hearing; “Sandwiches” and “Dishes.” It triggers their “post traumatic stress disorder.”
An odd thing happened to Bianca, aged 23, when she noticed that her boyfriend, who recently moved into her apartment with her, did an exceptional job at cleaning the place up.
At first Bianca was satisfied about the shattering of gender roles and her boyfriend’s willingness to do the dishes and scrub the toilets.
A baser instinct must have kicked in, however, when she felt guilty and attempted to help him clean…
He said to her “It’s okay Bianca, I got this, just watch some T.V. and i’ll come join you when I’m finished.” He then jokingly added “haha, I clean better than you anyway.”
She was livid. She knew deep down that it was true. A part of her felt that it was her turf; a thought that must have been instilled in her from years of patriarchal indoctrination.
It was quite the dilemma for the ardent feminist; If she did the cleaning that would be oppressive and misogynistic… but if he cleaned better than her, then that would also be oppressive and misogynistic.
She jumped in and started doing the dishes anyway… she smiled and said “feminism is about equality so we’ll share the chores!” She was very confused and angry, but those were some seriously sparkling ass dishes when she was done.
