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.Â The sisterhood inspired a generation of women to be more capable and practical than men, always fixing things, organising things, and generally taking charge â€” and when men realised this they couldnâ€™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 isnâ€™t about the sex and the bondage, not really. Itâ€™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.
