Apparently The Texas A&M Faithful Were Generous Enough To Give Their Wives A Day Off To Celebrate Aggie Pride
Sexist? Who said that? Did you even read the lyrics? It says take OFF the gloves. Put DOWN the towel. How can an event that champions a woman's right to stop cleaning the house for a couple hours marginalize her as a person? I don't see what the confusion is here. Seems a little disingenuous to be talking about a bunch of negative stuff like generalizations and stereotypes when all the Aggie housewives were blessed with the opportunity to put away their broomsticks, pack up their estrogen, and celebrate their husbands' love of football without them.
I would have thought they would appreciate being able to get out of their aprons for awhile. I gotta tell ya, I didn't see them trying to take advantage of it this quickly. What's next? Are they going to pass along dinner duty tonight too? HA! It's like you give a woman an inch or two of leash, and the next thing you know she's a mile away barking about equality. Take the all purpose cleaner out of her hands for one day and all the sudden she's protesting against folding the second load of laundry. This damn 'Chalk Talk' wasn't sexist. If anything, it was empowering! Now these broads think they can just go wherever they want whenever they want before all their chores are done. Uhhhh, hello, the kids' lunches aren't going to pack themselves! Can we at least wait until the season actually starts before we start discussing whether or not women can abandon their household duties to celebrate touchdowns? I keep hearing about this so called "glass ceiling", and I look up to find out it hasn't even been windexed yet. How about we get that figured out before we talk about tailgates and parades?
P.S. Damn, sarcasm and sexual innuendo directed at middle aged women usually plays so well...
