    That's complete nonsense and you should feel bad for posting it.

    Completely sexist and a little funny too. Yes, I'm going to hell.

    I think they're just having a bit of fun. When these things are published it always brings out people who have extreme reactions to things that just aren't that important.

    No problem. I realize, in comparison, this isn't bad at all (just my luck to post around the same time as that story came out).

    I wouldn't call her sexy.


    This sandwich thing - Nah, I'd never do that. Too much self-esteem.
    I think that, sadly, JR has a point. There is a lot of latent sexism and women shouldn't tolerate it.
    The prob is if we protest against such treatment we get accused of whining, constant complaining, having no sense for fun etc. etc.
    It's a lose/lose situation, most of the time.

    Welcome to the 1950s.

    No, that's completely insane, too.

    I agree. I told my husband NOT to get me an engagement ring. I'd rather we saved the money towards a house. He was relieved.

    (For our wedding rings, we got wholesale catalogs from his sister who made jewelry at home. We went through them, made our choices, and were very happy with them.)

    As for the sandwiches, well, whatever works for them. I like sandwiches, too, and experimenting with recipes can be fun.

    Exactly. What does she get 300 of? And no, "thank you for the sandwich" does not count.

    Those sandwiches look rather fattening.

    If he wants sandwiches and she wants to make them, I don't see a problem. As long as their relationship isn't abusive or something, it's certainly no skin off my ass.

    Were you reminded of that when you woke up this morning, or when you read the OP?

    Sounds like he made a joke and she decided to take him seriously. To me it sounds moronic and dumb. But I am a bit negative. And I don't know wither the woman or the man.
