I reckon this is right…I’ll probably get a kick in the goolies, but I think it is right.
I think there is a reason that men have become hard-wired to ignore sensible advice from their wives, and it is to do with the feminist revolution of the 1970s. The sisterhood inspired a generation of women to be more capable and practical than men, always fixing things, organising things, and generally taking charge — and when men realised this they couldn’t believe their luck. It meant we could go back to being looked after, as we were by our mothers when we were children.
Sadly, I think women are now cottoning on to this. I watched a documentary the other night, which explained the phenomenal appeal of the erotic novel Fifty Shades of Grey. It isn’t about the sex and the bondage, not really. It’s to do with modern women secretly longing for men to be in charge again, as they were in the 1950s, dominants to their submissives. Damn.
