Can all of the women that are independent throw your hands up and exclaim to men how irritating it is to come home from a hard day at work, and see your man sitting on the couch doing nothing, or lying in the bed napping as if he’s worked all day? Regardless of how independent she is, a woman still wants her man to be a man and not a little boy; if she wanted to take care of someone she would’ve had a child. Ugh, whatever happened to the man that wants to work hard to provide for you and take care of you? Seems as if women are the ones aiming to be ambitious, have a career, have their own home, etc. while men are aiming to find…well, they’re aiming to find another mother.
Speaking of mothers, parents play the most important part in the cause of this role switch, especially mothers. Mothers tend to spoil and baby their boys, while they train their girls to not be dependent on a man, thus causing women to become more independent and harder workers than men. Men nowadays have been raised to look for a woman to take care of them, just as their mother did, while they bring little to nothing to the table. With single mothers being a norm now, boys don’t have positive, goal-driven men in their lives to look up to, so they grow up to be lazy, mediocre men.
With this new breed of lazy men swiftly becoming an epidemic, it’s causing women to step up and take on the roles that were once believed to be men’s. The norm will soon be house husbands, female bread winners, female head of households, and submissive men. As thrilling as that may sound to a feminist, it’s confusing to the younger generation, and can be destructive to the structure of future relationships. While not all men are lazy, it’s certainly important that we watch out for the lazy ones and, if we can, help them to man up.
As a woman, how would you deal with dating a lazy man?
