I always wonder why a man who handles household chores these days is given a skeptical look, and of course slammed with a question,’ You mean you don’t work ?’ This question is enough to rob a man off his masculinity in society, even if he thinks otherwise and words do ego in silence that irritate him the most. Why ? Why ? we do not give any credit to people either Man or Woman who works at home, taking care of every other thing and working endlessly because trust me household chores are never ending. Situation is much worse with male candidates whose staying at home and not working (how ironical, even the housewives work is not accounted in GDP of the country.. Why ? Why? Whyyyyy ? forget the male ones).
Lately, am very much sympathetic to this issue because Males of this society are confined in that rule of being strong and bread winner all the time so, people obviously find that hard to accept that if a male goes out of the context, will be laughed at and neglected even or maybe tagged ‘zoru ka gulam’. That’s why the working ones don’t help even an inch in household chores, that’s pretty annoying absolutely against the definition of equality.
Maybe, that’s why our mothers don’t teach them necessary skills that are taught to girls (Multi-tasking), they are trained to adapt everywhere whether they want to work or stay as housewives.
But don’t we need to change ? We need to give men a chance to be in women shoes and to feel confident no matter in what they do ? so that at last men as househusbands can say,’ It’s common, you know’.
Till next time !
