i'd just like to share a short conversation with my mum this morning. it's short but, as people say nowadays, DEEP.
we were both gardening at the front yard, she was collecting the dried leaves and i was throwing it out. and then my mum said
" us girls, we have to do eveything you know"
while doing all that, i was like yeah, so true. so i casually responded to her
" well i don't really mind doing all this, but amidst us girls doing all these work around the house, i wonder, what are the guys doing ?"
my mum laughed. well i do have four brothers, currently only one is still staying with us, but still, it's not like the others don't come over sometimes. i think it's so funny how my mum responded, it may be just a joke, but it still means something though. so she said
" i guess they just eat "
and we both laughed so hard, even my brother standing nearby just waiting on us was curious. if u only u knew what we were talking about brother. haha
the thing is, i am not generalizing this to all the guys. some do know what to do how to do it and they just help around without being asked. some on the other hand, do help but only when asked to help. and other type of guys just try to avoid all these work cause they have this old-schooled mind constricting and quite abashing understanding that these work are meant to be for women. since a long time ago, we know that even our beloved prophet helped his wife a lot. so be that kind of person
to be fair i must say as well that not all girls know how to do these housework. and they also fall into these three categories such as the ones i mentioned for the guys before
the ultimate conclusion here is, we have to learn together & work together for the better. No bias in both guys and girls, everyone has to and should help around the house doing all these house chores.
