A Man’s Family Demands Women to Cook, but His New Girlfriend Labels It ‘Sexist’ and Challenges What She Considers an Outdated Gender Norm, Leading to Family Conflict

A man grapples with the issue amid a family’s ingrained sexist tradition of assigning women to cook during significant gatherings. However, when his girlfriend voices her discontent, it sparks tension between them.

Here’s what he had to say:

They Were a Close-Knit Family

The man said, “I have a big family that’s incredibly close. We have big family dinners every few months where we all meet at my great-grandfather’s estate and eat together. Typically how this works is that the women go cook for the time they’re there and the men don’t.”

He Knew The Tradition Was Wrong

The man understood this was “sexist as hell”, but as one of the youngest people in their family, he explained that his “protests mean literally nothing.”

Occasionally, some women chose not to cook, but this decision often resulted in them being ostracized.

Typically, it was the wives or long-term girlfriends who didn’t cook and they had already become close members of the family.

However, when new partners refused to cook, it led to negative consequences such as exclusion and rude behavior.

The man explained, “She told me that it’s unacceptable and that if she has to do that she will not be going. I’ve tried to find a compromise with her on this but she won’t budge and she’s annoyed at me. She told me that if I think it’s acceptable to make her do this I’m just as bad as everyone else.”

The Internet Responded

One person said, “Why won’t my gf abandon her sense of self-respect so that she can establish herself as a subservient woman-tool so that my sexist family won’t mentally and verbally abuse her?! She just doesn’t get it!!”

Another person said, “What about your family making a good first impression on her and not expecting her to be an unpaid cook and servant?”
