    Are male marriage proposals sexist??

    Seems to be causing a big stir on social media right now, particularly amongst millennials many of whom believe the concept of the male marriage proposal to a woman to be sexist and deeply insulting to women.

      Whether it was sexist or not was the least of my wife’s issues when I proposed.

      Utter tools then aren’t they? How about in a gay male marriage? Does that make them hypocrites?

      Maybe if women stopped seeing the traditional wedding day as being all about them, and stopped seeing the groom and his party as being mere accessories to the main event, they might have an argument.

      What's wrong with being sexy?

      I am outraged.

      I assume that's why the article was written... to get the journalist up in the rankings and some kudos for causing a mild stir?

      Next up, outrage as male holds door open for female. RAC lambasted for not sending a female employee to a female who has broken down at the roadside. Outrage as Bull denied the right to produce milk, even though it can't - but it should have the right to produce milk... A bit like Stan and his foetus in a box.

      I'm beyond giving a shit now. I just laugh at stuff like this.

      We agreed mutually.

      And when I say that, I mean we actually had a huge argument after 8 hours in the car and I said "well we might as well get bloody married then".

      Perfect.

      wouldn't it help?

      seems a odd issue to make anything of, women are free to propose so onus is on them to make a change. expecting men to not propose... well, not really the intended consequence here. or we could dispense with the silly, expensive theatre marriage.
      The English know how to make the best of things. Their so-called muddling through is simply skill at dealing with the inevitable.

      A couple of months ago I was on a random date when I opened the door of a restaurant for her before we were led to a table.
      After the meal she reached across and held my hands, looked into my eyes and said “ Tonight has been lovely, but if you ever open a door for me again we’re finished”.
      As we left the restaurant, I quickly opened the door for her, as she stared at me in disbelief I said “ You don’t get to decide that!”.
      Ok, it was childish on my part but it gave me soooo much satisfaction ��

      I don't get some people, if you and I, or any other bloke, were approaching a door I'd probably hold it open for you ..... not because your weak, I'm superior or inferior just because that's what my parents taught me.
