Real men wear the pants.

Have you seen this ad by Dockers? Some people are saying it is sexist! Really?! I actually think it's a breath of fresh air. I have twice been stranded on the side of the road and not one time did a man stop to help. Some men today have been sissified. I'm sure they're scared to step up and open the door. Ladies, the man isn't opening the door for you because you are incapable! He's opening it because he's honoring you and showing respect! The phrase "men should wear the pants" doesn't mean that men have the right to run all over you and you don't have a voice. Opening doors, changing flat tires, working hard to provide for their families, respecting women, and making choices that are covered in prayer doesn't take away your voice.

Just my opinion. What are your thoughts?



  1. I for one... agree with the ad 100%!!!

  2. I'm in Australia so I havent seen this ad, but how true!!! Love it.
    Ang xx

  3. I haven't seen the ad, so this is the first I've heard of it. I honestly don't know how I feel about it.

  4. I have not seen it but I agree. It is time to get back to the basics for both genders.

  5. Once I had a patient at work (I'm a nurse) tell me that the whole world went wrong when we "let" women out of the house to work!!
    Of course, first I was offended. He was saying that to a WOMAN at WORK! LOL
    But his thinking wasn't TERRIBLY off- he said when we don't invest in raising our own children and instead pay others to raise them, we hold other people accountable for our own children's actions. "Nobody can love your children like you do, therefore nobody can raise them like you can" was his theory.
    He said that the "sad" part is that now mothers HAVE to work, because you can't keep a household afloat with one income (usually). Half joking, he said "Now you women have equal rights you fought so hard for. So... what's next? Are you happy?"

    I "get" what he is saying, and I do agree- I'm sad I can't stay home and raise my daughter, but as a nurse I really DO provide for our family what is needed in other ways.

    Maybe if men could/would just "Man back UP" then we could be the wives of the 50's again, huh?!

  6. I could not agree with you more. You know one one hand men are told to be less manly, yet women who choose to be keepers of the home are considered opressed and unhappy.

    I am happy that I have a husband has the ability and willingness to support his family.

  7. I couldn't agree more, Monica! Men don't do those things anymore and I for one, as a single woman, am looking for the man that still will. I am more than capable of doing things like that for myself and am often times a little too independent but it's a wonderful feeling to have a man go out of his way to open your car door, open the door to the restaurant, pull your chair out for you, things like that. Chivalry is dead and it needs to be resurrected. I love this ad and agree with it and you whole-heartedly. Yes I have a career and don't expect or want a man to do everything for me but I do want a man that's willing to be a man... :)

  8. I totally agree. My husband is great about doing those "manly" things like opening doors and filling my car with gas in the winter (he's really good to me!). I just wish that more men were like he is ... :)

  9. This is an awesome post. Thank you for putting it so bluntly. I'm so sorry for what you are going through right now...and you're in my prayers!
