Girlfriend Gifts Boyfriend A Husky And Not A Cat Just Because She Thought The Cat Would Make Him Less Masculine

Since when did we start associating pets with masculinity?

I mean it is so irrelevant to call someone weak if they have a specific kind of creature as their pet animal. Be it a big German Shepherd or a cute tabby cat, the relationship between a pet and its owner is only based on love, care, and affection. There are no such things are labels, genders, or anything like that when it comes to this bond.

Calling someone girly for getting a cat and manly for getting a dog is outrageous, obnoxious, and baseless. But unfortunately, this is a reality. So many people associate a human’s masculinity with the type of pet animal they have and in today’s story, this is exactly what we are going to touch upon.

Reddit user Throwaway56181 recently posted a story about his girlfriend gifted him a husky instead of a cat because the dog would actually make him look more masculine. OP didn’t want to be unfair to the dog so they decided to return it back to the breeder she got it from. The matter was taken to the sacred community of AITA by OP to know if they were wrong for returning the dog or not.

Scroll down below to read the story!

1. OP’s girlfriend promised to get her boyfriend a cat but when she went out to get it, she ended up returning with a Siberian husky.

2. Clearly this woman is linking cats to girly people and dogs to manly people. And that’s why she decided to get a dog for her boyfriend but OP knew things would never work out because his way of living was incompatible with the lifestyle of the Husky.

3. OP went on a search to find the breeder of the dog and he managed to do so by breaking into his girlfriend’s email account. The family was happy to take the dog back.

4. OP safely returned the dog back to where it came from and didn’t take any refund money either. This, of course, infuriated his girlfriend but must’ve also taught her a lesson.

OP was NTA for this one. In fact, he did the absolute right thing by returning the dog back to the breeder. Huskies like space and OP’s apartment was not spacious at all. You don’t want to suffocate a dog for no reason, it would react aggressively obviously. OP thought of the bigger picture while his girlfriend was stuck in the vicious cycle of “masculinity and unmasculinity”.

8. Huskies like long walks and OP knew he couldn’t provide his Husky with that.

11. So unfortunate how the Husky had to stay locked in a house. They are not meant to be locked.

14. I am so glad about OP’s decision to return the dog. He fully deserves to adopt a cat now, the way he dreamed.
