A local woman has caused a rift in social media users after sharing that her mom cooked every day for several years. While many women still manage the domestic affairs of their respective households, the post definitely triggered many Twitter users who found the behaviour quite sexist.
@Mpoomy_Ledwaba shared the post that had everyone talking.
"I need my mom to explain how she has cooked every day for so many years." she writes in the thought-provoking post.
Mzansi social media users took to the comments section and shared their thoughts. While some woman felt it necessary to brush up on their cooking skills before settling down, others completely banished the old fashioned notion and hoped for an open-minded man.
Check out some of the comments below:
Irazo ye Diskie thoughtfully wrote:
"I allow my partner to cook only when she is in the mood to do so, and if she is tired then she won't cook and when I get home I will cook and at weekends I do laundry and clean around the house. Maybe it's because we have a very energetic son so I make sure I allow her time to rest."
@AnneeErasmus passionately shared her views:
"Stupidity - we start out trying to be the good little wife, then it's expected and then taken for granted. And it's so hard to change it. So we cook, and clean and care... every damn night."
@LukheleLukheli sweetly commented:
"I thought it was a skill, perfected every day..much appreciated by those around you."
@MrsMonaJones1 hilariously said:
"Mina, I cook everyday bcoz I only cook for myself..very energized."
"Me & you both ! This cooking everyday business is just not for me. I pray I get married to an open minded man, who's not too stereotyped & just not too traditional/rural ! Bcoz Wow."
@Hombi_sa threw some shots at our boys:
"Slavery is a thing of the past black man."
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that Bonnie Mbuli has shared her two cents on the trending topic of polyandry. The actress took to social media recently to respond to politician Kenneth Meshoe.
Meshoe recently asked what would happen if a woman's husbands wanted to be intimate with her at the same time. Bonnie took to Twitter to react to Meshoe's question.
The media personality shared that the woman would get to decide who she wants to sleep with at any given time. She wrote:
"The same thing that happens when she has one man. She gets to decide who she wants to sleep with at any given time, and anyway women have far more stamina than men so azishe!"
The TV host also hilariously shared her opinion on some of the negative comments by SA men over the polyandry issue. The star wrote:
"The men are so pressed, kwaaaaak! Lalela, sharing is caring!"
Bonnie's followers took to her comment section to share their thoughts on her opinion on polyandry. Check out some of their reactions below:
"Crush ya mina, am ready to be second or third hubby, let's do this."
"So if a woman is pregnant. None of the men will know who the real father is until the child is born and DNA tests are done, whereas in polygamy it is almost certain. I can just imagine the disappointment when a man who thought he was the father is told that he isn’t but smang mang."
"Well said. I’m sure that article was written by a man. They’re so exhausting mxim. We are ready thina."
"More stamina than men? You're confused, men do almost all the work during sex while women just lay there, that doesn't need stamina."
"So women go from saying men are trash to wanting to marry more than one man. Ai cha ni bhemile straight."
"I really don't get why gents are so hard pressed by this, what is good for the goose should surely be good for the gander."
"They will never accept it."
