Day 198: A woman ain’t gotta do shit.

I’m seriously fed up with the patriarchal nonsense that a woman has to do whatever for her man or else she’s not “worthy” of him. All of this “you gotta cook for him”, “you gotta fix his plate”, and “you gotta clean up after him” mess is ridiculous. If you’re happy doing all of those things for your man, that’s great. Do you.

You wanna make your man’s plate? Make his plate and shut up.

You wanna rub his feet after he comes home from work? Rub his feet and shut up.

You wanna take care of him like he’s a child and not a grown ass man? Do that and just shut up already.

Stop saying it’s “a woman’s job” to do those things. It’s not. Every woman ain’t obligated to do or put up with the same shit you do and put up with for your man. Hell, a lot of us don’t even want a man. We’re lesbian, bisexual, aromantic, asexual, or just plain happy being single.

A woman ain’t gotta do shit to or for a man if she don’t want to. Remember that. Live by it.
