I just read a post about a fellow FDS member moving back to live with her family after having the experience of living with two boyfriends who stopped doing chores and leaving everything to her.
It reminded me of the numerous stories I've come across of men who make a particular mess: leaving their dirty clothes everywhere and putting them everywhere but in the clothes basket.
These men will have their girlfriends/wives constantly coMmUniCAte with them to put their clothes in the basket and the men will agree to and never do it while others will get defensive or downright angry that they're being spoken to.
This is just one of the many ways men disrespect women because there's no doubt in my mind that men like this do it on purpose. They believe that they have the right to do what they want, how and when they want, with no care in the world about how they affect their partner. A lot of these men also had mothers who let them do nothing as she took care of everything, leaving these men with the same expectations as their partners.
