Twitter is the wild west of the Internet.
And when I say that, I mean that there are a lot of people with a platform on there. From celebrities who aren’t really educated in that particular area offering advice to people posting about things that nobody asked for, it is simply a mess. I am not saying that there aren’t good gems on Twitter but they’re few and far between. However, it is always lovely to see people on Twitter banding together and making fun of a sexist person.
I personally don’t believe that making fun of a person with different values helps anyone since they usually just use it as ammunition to reiterate that they are right, sometimes it is very fun. We as a society have come very far when it comes to equal rights and such but there are still a few people living in the past. Sadly, that little minority has very loud voices so it seems like we are going backward as a society even though that is not the case.
However, at times like this, it is good to see that a lot of people on the Internet are not afraid to call someone out. And that is exactly what happened when a Twitter user made a very ‘old-fashioned‘ comment. You can see what I am talking about by scrolling below.
This is the original tweet that started it all.
Now I am not going to hide the fact that there were a lot of people who supported her world views.
However, there were also a lot of people who banded together to make fun of this person.
Isn’t this just a basic thing that everyone needs to do?
That sounds exactly like what used to happen.
I understand that everyone had different values but this is simply weird. I am not saying that staying home and taking care of all the chores is a bad thing. After all, many stay-at-home people do this and there is nothing wrong with that as long as your partner respects you. However, the way she words it makes it clear that she has to take care of her husband. her husband is not a baby and he can take care of himself. We need to stop disrespecting men by saying they need someone to take care of them and some men need to stop relying on their partners and learn to do things themselves. These are just the basics of how one becomes an independent adult.
How surprising is that?
Are we humans or birds? There is no distinction.
This does sound like the pick-me culture.
I really want to laugh at how absurd all of this is.
Milk the children? What?
And don’t forget living with a woman named Sappho after your husband passes away and calling her a ‘roommate’.
What are your thoughts on this? Do you believe in the values the Twitter user presented? or do you think there should be balance when it comes to what both of the partners do when it comes to chores and such?
