The honesty here is refreshing and a gut-punch at the same time. You’re not telling us anything new, what’s new is that a man is saying it. But, can you even imagine (just for a minute) if a woman had posted this?

Can you imagine the backlash if a woman had said her man just wants sex, someone to clean after him and someone to vent at? Oh my freaking Gawd, there would have been men crawling out of the woodwork spewing profanity.

And thus, the problem is twofold. It’s not just how (too many) men perceive women, but that if a woman points it out, it’s instant anger and denial.

Thank you for your honesty in writing this. I gave it all the claps I had to give.
