Isn’t it interesting that the only time a lot of men think gender roles are outdated is when it comes to them spending money on women? There is always a debate about who should pay the rent in a relationship between a man and a woman, and that’s fine because it depends on the individual relationships and their financial status.
My issue is that when a woman says she expects a man to pay for the rent, men will bring up gender roles/gender equality. They’ll say shit like “ I thought you females wanted gender equality?”. Lmao ok. 1) most women don’t make as much as men because hello, wage gap. 2) I’m still not splitting rent with a man. If I wanted to split the rent I’d find a roommate. This is the only time they ever care about gender equality or are against traditional values. Even tho they want a traditional feminine housewife who is a maid, a chef , a porn star, and lets a man “be a man”. 🙄. Like you can’t pick and choose so it’s only beneficial to you lmao. Sir if you want to subscribe to traditional gender roles, then you need to be a traditional man and be the bread winner who takes care of the family financially. I’m so over men complaining about this generation of women not letting men be men when y'all expect so much out of women but want to be cheap asses.
u know what i love about clarke though.. she’s a ~strong kickass heroine~ in a way that i don’t usually see. she doesn’t have to break boards with her fist, or be able to build something out of a pile of scraps, or make hilarious jokes ever 5 seconds to be an interesting and lovable female character. and I’m NOT knocking those types of female characters AT ALL (because lordy knows i love those!), but I hardly see characters like clarke griffin.
she’s a good female character because she is a complex person. because she’s uptight but likes to have a little fun now and then. because she makes difficult choices and cries about them later. because she is good at getting what she wants, but can also be swayed herself. because she’s a quick thinker but doesn’t have all the solutions. because she’s analytical and logical but also loves people so deeply that it tears her apart. because she’s ultimately a good person who sometimes makes bad choices. she’s been through a lot and yet still somehow finds it in herself to smile at a dumb joke and even make one herself now and then.
clarke griffin is a female character who is not a super genius person, or a super physically kickass person, or a super sassy person. but she is still powerful in a quiet, understated way that usually only male characters are allowed to be. i love That
thank you for shining so brightly and for always making me and so many other people smile. i hope you’re as happy in this world as this world is to have you in it. you’re so important, and so loved. #happybaekhyunday ♡
