Nobody did it to you, you did it to yourself Mr. Oriental man, you wanted to be the MASTER of your family, you wanted to be the dominating alpha male, your word to be obeyed and you wanted to be the only funds generator to your family, congratulations, Swallow it dear!
Because you didn’t want your mother, sister, daughter or wife to work, as other men could possibly look at them and harass them, you disabled the efforts and productivity of half of your community, only because of your “shame” perspective you made all the years she spent on learning to realize her dreams and to take her community and country to the next level and compete with the rest of the world, you made her stay home, look after your kids and house, dedicating her time to enhance only the place where you both live, and only make sure her kids are in a good comfortable condition to carry on with their own lives, what about hers?, she cannot do anything by herself, she can’t go anywhere you don’t allow, she cannot work unless you were kind enough to allow her, in some places you don’t even allow her to drive and you leave her to some driver or a taxicab to take her to her destination while you are enjoying your arrogance and celebrating your manhood over her nerves and lifestyle, without caring about her feelings, but only about what the “others” would say if you don’t act like they do towards their wives, daughters or sisters.
What you did without knowing sir, is that you rendered Mrs. Oriental a dependent creature, and as a reward to your idiocy those women are now throwing all their burdens on you, whatever they want they ask it from you, whenever they see something nice and wanted to buy it they nag on you because you have the cash, whenever they needed money it’s from you, wherever they want to go it’s you who has to take them, groceries is your task, family vacation is only your responsibility Mr. ATM, as a matter of fact you could consider yourself the MASTER but you’re in reality a BANK, Carrier, Driver, Body Guard and many other positions that vary from a family to another.
You made it even hard on your fellow young ones that when it’s the time for a girl to get married she comes only with her clothes, that You bought to her before the wedding that you paid its expenses to a fully furnished house that only you rented or bought and only you furnished from the pin to the biggest price of furniture with your own money only, keep the ignorance going my dear.
What’s really frustrating over and above all that, is that you are claiming that these are the teachings of your religion, regardless what it would be, but the truth is that they surely aren’t, they are only the sick traditions you are struggling to keep while the world is moving on ahead of you, but just because you’re so lazy to catch up you are standing in your place wishing the world to return back in time and join you, but here’s the surprise, it won’t, and you will always stay behind until you decide that it’s time to move, and hopefully this doesn’t take you so long, you’re running out of time man!
