Do I See A Double Standard?
I’m going to toss this out there and see what happens. The longer I look at it, the more I see a problem. I’m curious what women will think about it.
I tell men how women think and communicate and encourage them to learn to speak to their wife in a way that she can hear. I see it as both loving and wise to do this. I also suggest that women should learn to speak to their husband in a way that he can hear. Goose, gander, no difference.
However, I see a lot of women who seem to think it’s their husband’s job to learn to communicate like a woman, but she has no obligation to try to understand how men talk, share, hear, or think. The unspoken message is that female communication is superior and he should try to bring himself to her level. She, on the other hand, shouldn’t try to lower herself to his level.
So, is it just me, or is this a common double standard?
