Some girls love the idea of being waited on.
Some girls love the idea of being given everything.
Some girls also love the idea of being rescued.
I am not one of them.
The idea of a damsel in distress is the exact opposite of who I pride myself on being.
Urban Dictionary says a damsel in distress is ” A stereotype of portraying an unmarried female who needs to be saved. “
I know it is typical for women to need a mans help in somethings: bug killing, lawn mowing, oil changing, but there is a line I draw where a man is not needed. I can make my own money, open my own jars, make my own food. When did the idea of being seemingly helpless become so appealing? Heck, I know some ladies won’t even carry their own dishes to the sink. NEWS FLASH LADIES: you are not weak, feeble, or incapable of doing everything yourself. If you choose to act other wise, you are just reinforcing stereotypes.You are not a Disney princess who needs a prince to come rescue you from some horrible situation. Have some independence and self respect. Some women also like to act like they are dumb and ditsy because its “cute”. I see nothing cute with toning down your own intelligence to make some guy feel like he is doing you a favor by explaining everything for you. In simple terms I’m sure. There is nothing like having pride in the fact that you can
survive THRIVE on your own, and nothing is better then being able to think freely for yourself. Do I love when my guy offers to help me do something when I’m busy, sure. Do I like when he opens the car door for me, absolutely. But best believe I can do anything he offers to do, on my own. I can think and answer questions for myself without looking to someone to help me. I can change my own flat tire myself. I can go get my own phone charger in the other room, and best believe I can make my own damn cup of coffee.
