Originally published on Role Reboot and feminist dating here with their permission. So how do you know if your new guy is going to see you as his equal and be a considerate partner who does his share of caretaking and housekeeping duties once the early dopamine-filled buzz fades away? For example, does he read at all? Perhaps for you, this is no big deal. Any guy who completely resists you might be showing you that he cares more about tradition than your explicitly-stated individual preferences.
Feminist dating are tense right now, and people are fighting to find the words to express why the election of a sexual predator, the seemingly endless unearthing of metoo stories, and the Supreme Court confirmation of a perpetrator of sexual assault is testing the boundaries of women's relationships to men everywhere. Anita Hill's testimony during the confirmation hearings of Clarence Thomas brought to light the general lack of awareness on behalf of men of gender inequity and abuse of power in the workplace. Those hearings and the tone-deaf responses of the Senate Judiciary Committee to Hill's allegations brought to sharp focus the vast gap between men's and women's experiences and what should be deemed inappropriate behavior between colleagues. Since then, we've become more aware of sexual harassment as a culture and companies are required to implement standards and practices to ensure a workplace free of unwanted and unwelcome behaviors.
I have a confession, everyone! Before I begin, if any of the guys have Googled me and found this, for the sake of our potential future: stop reading now. Kidding not really, though.
