Recently there’s been a rash of videos popping up all over Facebook of women proposing to men. I’m talking get down on one knee, pulling a ring out being all chivalrous. I’ll try to keep this post as cute as I can but I’ll definitely keep it real. First off let me just say that I think its absolutely disgusting to see a woman get down on one knee and
beg ask a man to marry her. I just can’t take seeing anymore of these videos in my timeline. I’m sorry I don’t think it’s cute or cool although I do think it’s very gentlemanly. The idea of a woman proposing to a man is ridiculous and exactly what is wrong with relationships today. Women need to stay in their rightful place and men need to step up and be men. The lines are being crossed and at some point there will be no turning back. What happens after you propose and he says yes, do you take the garter from his thigh at the reception after he does a reenactment of Beyoncé’s “Dance for You” in front of all of your friends and family? Do you take out the trash on Thursday evenings and shovel after snowstorms? Look at it like this, if he wanted to marry you he would’ve asked you? Now I’m definitely not saying wait around until forever or maybe even never because I’m the queen of ultimatums but don’t sacrifice your dignity. I cannot fathom how it could’ve possibly been a magical moment if I got down on one knee in my pencil skirt, fumbled around in my purse for a big man ring, while my soon to be husband looked down at me bashfully and accepted my hand in marriage. Women today are doing too much and men simply aren’t doing enough. Its time for men to take their rightful place as men and lead women because if they don’t we end up doing foolish things like this.
