Singles-Ottawa.com Reviews: Why Ladies Should Date Feminist Guys
Girls these days are very busy and do not find the time to socialize. Hence, they have to take the help of the Internet to find a date. Dating sites like Singles-Ottawa.com offer them with the opportunity to easily find men to date. However, ladies if you are not dating feminist guys, you are doing it wrong. Dating feminist guys can not only be fun but will also ensure that you get the respect you deserve. A boyfriend who refuses to acknowledge the basic tenets of feminism won't side with you when you say no one is listening to your ideas at work. He'll be a baby about going down on you, but feel like he's entitled to a blow job.
Your boyfriend sure as hell better be a feminist, otherwise he's not worth your time. Feminism isn't a complex idea to figure out. Either he recognizes that there are societal double standards and professional disparities between the sexes, or he doesn't. Feminists want men and women on equal footing in terms of their ability to make choices that make them happy. It's about equality.
It's not like he's going to be an actively horrible demon who locks you up and only lets you out to make casseroles, but feminist men will split chores with you and not feel emasculated because they got stuck doing the cooking or cleaning. They're happy to be stay-at-home-dads if you need to focus on your career.
What's more, research from Cornell University shows that equality in relationships makes both people happier (and makes for a better sex life). And just because your feminist boyfriend isn't afraid to be progressive, that doesn't mean he has to be some specific nerdy, scholarly brand of guy (not that there's anything wrong with that). Feminists can be badass lumberjack men (like the powerful woman-loving Ron Swanson from Parks and Recreation), or metro (like Schmidt from New Girl) or goofy as hell (like Phil from Modern Family).
Wanting a feminist boyfriend doesn't even mean you need to run out and try to meet a guy at The Vagina Monologues. Feminist dudes are everywhere. As for those gents who say that treating a lady like a lady is against feminist principles, they’ve got it wrong. Feminism is about equal opportunities and mutual respect, and what would be a better way of demonstrating respect than having good manners? It’s not as if he won’t get rewarded with a smile and a ‘Thank you.’
A lot of very nice men don’t understand feminism. They think it’s about you hating men and being a career junkie. The reality is, if you’d prefer to stay at home with your kids, that is feminist as well. It’s about doing what you prefer to do instead of doing as you’re told.
