In regards to the fact that a female making more money than a male is intimidating or makes them.feel as if they cant flex their manhood (not literally -_-) is ridiculous. If you have an issue with me making more money than you then my god, find another job. Yes, it's really that simple. I wont jeopardize my happiness, enjoyment and finical perks I may get with my career because YOU feel sometype of way at the fact that my pay check is more than yours. What you thought this was?? Now I will be honest. I would be happy if the males who thought like this graced my life much more than if the golddiggin, longing for suga mommas, lookin to hold a 10 spot every day, jobless smucks that are running rampant among the world, who continually try to holler. But that's a post for another day. Back to gender roles...
If you're going to discuss gender roles you have to begin with the one question that no one seems to be able to successfully answer without making some type of acknowledgement to the accompanying party. That question is, "What does it mean to be a woman or a man?" I can't answer that question and I haven't heard an adequate response in my opinion. It's difficult to answer because being a woman and being a man for some reason cannot stand on it's own. You can't answer what makes you a woman without implying what doesn't make you a man, and vice versa. I think it has gotten harder to define these terms because these once definite lines have now begun to over-lap and blur as society has changed and become more accepting to situations and how people live their lives. And because of these lack of definitions, it's hard, if not impossible, to tell people where their place is in a relationships/family/careers/etc..

Although I know this isn't the reason, if what my friend says is true, about my current finical status, I guess I'm happy my Facebook status remains "Single" not because of my lack of personality or sexy looks. I'm sooooooooooooooo cool with being single and rich. *Cue Destiny's Child- "Independent Woman" ...now!*
