**honestly, who came up with gender roles? I would like to have a word with them.**
Lynn: Can you imagine, today when I rang the doorbell, your poor father had to come and open the gate!
Kathleen: My ‘poor’ father? Why are you pitying him in this situation?
Lynn: Ahhh, Kathy, men should not be made to work!
**I was left totally aghast**
Lynn: It is disrespectful.
**Don’t get me wrong, I love and respect my father, uncles, all older men by virtue of the fact that they are older and as such I owe them this respect, women as well, that goes without saying. Also, make no mistake, if it had been my father and I when the door bell rang, I would have gone to the gate, but that is not how things panned out. So…I’m just wondering, since when are certain thing ‘beneath’ men?**
