So I was talking with my nephew about basketball and suddenly
N: Whoa you like basketball, that’s sooo weird…
Me: Why is that weird?
N: Well, you know, you’re a WOMAN.
Men who can’t cook, clean, or even do their own laundry are not “cute” and “in need of a woman to care for them”. They are spoiled brats so dependent on gender roles that they never bothered to learn the minimal skills to take care of themselves.
Inability to suction the snot out of your 12-month-old daughter’s mucus-plugged nostrils because “it’s gross, and she doesn’t like it.”
(Corollary: Inability to use a rectal thermometer.)
Clarification: I’m referring to the inability to use of one of these simple devices —
On the other hand, I can’t fault anyone who gets grossed out by THIS rig —
(Quite a few parents have told me that it works really well, but still…)
We were totally grossed out when one of our pediatricians showed one very familiar thingy to us. And she was like ‘it’s not gross when it’s your own child’. Um, really? Don’t think so.
