  • All the women who have responded here should read:

    The Second Sex. by Simone de Beauvoir.

    It may take you a month or so, if you are a housewife, may be 2 weeks. Please post your views on the same topic after that.

    To all who miss sexist men, I would suggest, go to California and see how the porn business work.

  • I miss sexist men.  All we have these days are passive agressive politically correct men.

  • I like your list, I agree with everything on it, except for finances.  If I left it to my husband to take care of these things, we'd be in the poor house.....fast!  I take it upon myself to take care of the finances, the home, the children, and my husband.  He works very hard, sometimes very long hours, so I figure his time at home should be relaxing.  I work as well, but my job is not as stressful and I enjoy doing so much for my family.  He does have to take care of the yard and anything that may need fixing, but the rest I gladly take care of.  My mother was the same way with my dad, so I guess it's something I picked up from her.  I don't think you're a sexist, you're just a gentleman....there's not too many of those left in the world.

  • Maybe I did not make myself clear, even though I am a sexist, does not mean I want to dictate the lives of women.  Women and men both should be encouraged to follow their dreams, to be all that they can be. 
    I never have put down any woman that is a stay at home mom, however, I have always encouraged women to be more than just household managers, because if their husband becomes disabled (according to insurance actuaries your chances of becoming disable are 6-8 times higher than dying early) or if there is a divorce, the economical impact upon her will be major.  Women need to protect themselves, because often they can not depend on the men in their lives.
    I contend that women and men in our country tend to settle for lower goals than they are able to achieve, because they become comfortable in their present position.

  • I don't think you are sexist so much as just a product of the times you grew up in. A little "old-fashioned" so to say. Seems like you have equal respect for each sex, you just see them playing different roles in life. It's just cultural beliefs.

  • How are your daughters and other women you've encouraged to seek jobs in male fields going to work if you want them to stay home?
