Woman Shares Her Opinion About ‘Non-Traditional’ Women, And The Internet Claps Back

Krista Shanelle is a 29-year-old from Georgetown who writes articles about various topics, especially those involving womanhood, relationships, and social issues. Recently, Shanelle took to Facebook to share her opinion about ‘non-traditional’ women expecting to meet ‘traditional’ men, and how this makes no sense. According to Krista, she hopes to shed light on underground topics, “I started sharing my opinions on relationships for about a year, but I wasn’t consistent with it. I’ve only been doing it consistently for about 6 months. My goal is to make traditional family and relationship values popular again, at least for a small fraction of women and men. I realize that most won’t accept the traditional way,” Krista told Bored Panda.

Krista’s post received a lot of attention on social media, many people agreed with her while some said that she forgets such problems are clear power imbalances between men and women.

Both sides are thrashing strawmen. Who are these women who want a non-traditonal lifestyle for themselves and still want a traditional partner? What would such a relationship even look like? She's in a ménage à trois but the man involved wants his dinner on the plate by 5 pm like a real 50s man? There's a gender neutral term for people who want advantages for themselves while keeping their partners from having the same freedoms: assholes. Guy wants his girlfriend to do all the housework while both have fulltime jobs? Asshole. Girl wants to grow out her armpit hair but insists her boyfriend has to be clean shaven? Asshole. This isn't about feminism, it's about assholery. Everyone can be guilty of it, no matter what dangles between their legs or not.

Nearly broke my screen smashing the up button. Thank you! Good to know that there are still some sensible people out there who have the ability to treat things case by case or person by person. I don’t know why we have to be so divisive and generalize every damn thing these days.

What on earth does she think a traditional 1950's man is? I think of one who believes he runs the world and his wife because of his gender, is condescending in his affectionate tolerance towards his wife who he views as overly emotional and not a great thinker. One who is authoritarian and makes all the money and all the decisions, and just want a pretty woman to stay home and pamper him. Who wants that man?? I want a partner who I can navigate life *together* with, not just be a helpful component of him navigating his own life.

She means women who claim to want to be "equal" but still demand special treatment, such as feminists who still think men should pay for dates and who won't raise their hands to a woman, even if the woman hits first.

When in the world can we all stop arguing and just...be? With each other. As equals. And friends. Men and women, women and men. We're all the same. Years ago some stupid people decided we weren't, but if we all got together and listened to each other it would easier to sort things out, rather then bashing each other over social media.

YES ! Men and women are partners, not opponents. Side by side, not in front of each other. It's SO MUCH more fun this way !
