There is something very sad about being a guy who DMs Facebook groups for stay-at-home moms just to complain, so maybe we shouldn’t even be making fun of this guy who did exactly that. His life can not possibly be good. But some of the stuff he said simply must be addressed!
The man, called “Jonathan” had his DM published for public viewing by Facebook Page Stay at Home Mum, more because they found it hilarious than offensive. Though it is offensive.
“This encourages females not to be in the workplace and to rely on men,” he started, presumably referencing the page’s name. “No I’m not a feminist.” Not surprised to hear that! But I guess he wanted to be clear that he doesn’t think women should work because they deserve rights or whatever.
“I just think women shouldn’t be lazy,” he continued. “Men take care of their kids and work a full-time job. Why shouldn’t females bring in half their weight as well?”
He then claims men do half the child care as well, which I’d like to see cited with some sort of study, please.
“Being with a man so he can work hard and give all his money to you is not a job and is not okay. Taking advantage of someone and treating a man like a bank is not okay,” he concluded. “It is called gold-digging and it is being someone who uses others.”
The Facebook page shared a screenshot of this bizarre screed, then captioned it, “We don’t get many entertaining messages like this very often (we used to get heaps!) but we were so amused by this one, that we just had to post it up. Jonathon…..Maaaaate!!! Seriously? We asked him if he needed a hug.
He hasn’t replied.”
Lots of commenters believe Jonathon doesn’t actually have a family and hasn’t seen how things go down in a household:
All relationships are complicated and there should be equity. But sometimes being the stay-at-home mom is the way bigger job.
