Man slammed over ‘sexist’ expectations for his girlfriend: ‘Do your fair share’

A boyfriend is upset that his girlfriend is upset that he won’t cook or clean. The man wanted to know if he was in the wrong and went on Reddit’s “Am I the A******” forum for an answer. When his girlfriend (GF) brought up the issue that he never cooked, he argued that he didn’t have the time. “My GF and I both work full-time but I do longer hours. We live 5 minutes from her work so she only has a short commute,” he explained. Meanwhile, he works 12 to 14 hour days and has a one-hour commute each way. “She‘d been complaining that I never cook dinner and demanded I start ‘sharing the load’ to give her a break (her words),” he said. The girlfriend then only made quick meals for dinner that week, which he refused to eat it and ordered take out for himself. “She told me I’m being sexist for expecting to come home to a proper cooked meal. She later told her coworkers and friends about our talk who apparently all agree,” he said. Reddit seemed to agree with his girlfriend’s friends and coworkers too. “Your GF is not your mother or your maid. Step up and do your fair share,” one user commented
