So early this morning I heard my mom and sister in the kitchen babbling on about how my sis met some hot guy at the airport. I wasn't listening much into the conversation until my mom brought up my sister's ex who was apparently a "needy guy" something of that nature, here's where the double standard comes in, mom stated "You should always try and find a man who will take care of you, it's not right for a woman to be taking care of a man. It should always be the opposite." Her exact words, now this get's under my skin because I don't see the crime in both genders taking care of one another, why is it that men are expected to be these financially endowed beings who are just supposed to cater to any woman he is romantically involved with, without a second thought. While the expectations for a woman are unreasonably low?
