I Don'tI think I am pretty tolerant of the idea that a man "should be in charge blah blah blah" but that's only because I grew up in a home where that's how shitt was, it's just sad that it was taken to the extreme.
And honestly, sometimes it really sucked. My mom would ASK my dad for permission to go places. That's just fuckked up. She's a grown woman-- I think she can make the decision whether she needs to go shopping or not.
That's why I am not fond of the idea of marrying a fellow Latino. Latinos tend to have that mentality. Sure, I am making a generalization, but only because EVERY single teenage Latino guy I've met is like that. I think that's lame.
See, I can understand that a man can decide what's best for his family, etc. I think that's kinda hawt, that a man act like man, but degrading his wife and telling her EVERYTHING to do just doesn't go well with me. Don't expect me to cook for you because I can't. Don't think I am going to clean the house simply because I am a woman, because I won't. But fuckk yeah, I'll take care of my kids if I have any. I will feed them (somehow), give them baths, buy them clothes and play with them. And no, I won't do it because you tell me to, but because I love them, duh!
