This has been shared by 4 people on my FB all tagging their partners.

Is this not incredibly sexist to say the least?

I mean I won't change my name, I certainly wouldn't give up my home to go live in 'his' home let alone become his personal cleaner, my children don't have his surname.

However who in their right mind made this and think it's normal to do all of that? have a child for him, clean's his house, bringing up his children, taking care of his parents??? hmmhmmhmm

I just can't wound up by it.... sorry. Just another example of FB shite.

FB is bonkers. People share some really odd stuff.

If my OH shared that with anyone I'd vomit.

WTF?
Gets pregnant for you? Fuck off.
Almost gives up in the labour room? What does that even mean? You can't opt out of birth when it's imminent!

And all those assumptions about name changes and children's names.
Terrible!

It's a vomtastic load of old tosh. Not sure I can get het up about whether it's sexist or not. It does make out that all women are martyrs though.

Well, at least you can show you're angry ...

Maybe now you know what it was like for your mother's generation - and still is, for many women and cultures.

I just don't see how it celebrates 'woman week' It makes us all out to be slaves to our partners!

Annie my mother did nothing like this what so ever!

It made me laugh. Typical FB shite. I have a friend who posts constantly 'what bird am I, what Dysney princess am I? She's a bored nutter.

Ignore or take the piss.

Well that twat needs a slap!

Can't get worked up about it. Do you let every ridiculous fb post get you this upset?

read a lot of ops in mn complaining about sim.

Is there anything to stop you making up your own Facebook shite, sticking it out there and seeing if it gets shared? This example has to be a piss take surely?

oldlaundbooth Wed 24-Feb-16 17:41:58

Tongue in cheek surely?

Yep, its a total pile of sexist shite. It could have been written in the 1950's. What annoys me is that it is dressed up as appreciating women whilst reinforcing some grim stereotypes.

How about:

WOMAN
Has a vagina and a uterus
Doesn't have a penis

yuk

It's a load of rubbish. Much like most of the stuff on FB! Ignore and move on.

MrsSeanBean Wed 24-Feb-16 17:49:03

It's Facebook crap. Ignore. Better still, unregister from Facebook.

sooperdooper Wed 24-Feb-16 17:52:07

What a pile of nonsense, luckily I haven't seen anyone I know post it!!
