I think that culture plays a role sometimes. I went out on a few dates with a man from Sudan and we took a taxi across town. As I had my purse in my hand and he was still routing around in his pockets I paid the fare. He made the driver give the money back to me and then he paid. When we got out of the car he then proceeded to shout at me for embarrassing him. He was very upset and so was I because he was drawing so much attention to us. I understood that he felt strongly about this but we were in Dubai, we were not married and I really didn x7569 t fancy ending up in jail because I had paid the equivalent of a £65 taxi fare.
The purpose of the study according to assistant professor in psychology Dr David Fredrick was to find out why some traditional practices were being clung to despite a push for equality between the sexes. I know what a lot of men would say to this. They believe that women only want equality when it suits them. That we want to cherry pick the best of both worlds. We want to have things paid for, have doors held open for us and be seen right to our front door at the end of a date. Yet we also want equal pay, the right to birth control and not to be patronised every day of our lives. So what is a man supposed to do? Many are scared that if they are chivalrous then they could appear to be sexist .
