It's always great to see how the feminist worldview becomes more and more acceptable and accepted in daily life. Last night, my boyfriend and went to a restaurant. There was a man there selling roses to the patrons. So I decided to show my affection for my boyfriend by buying him roses. He had given me flowers many times, so it made a lot of sense for me to do the same for him.
A great thing about the whole experience was that everybody reacted completely normally. My boyfriend reacted exactly the way I do when he gives me flowers: happy but as if it were a very natural thing to happen. The man who sold me the flowers, the waitress, the hostess, and the other patrons who observed this scene took it completely in their stride.
I hope that gendered understanding of the appropriate ways of showing affection for the person you love will soon disappear. It makes no sense that our gender should dictate the way we express ourselves in any setting, especially in a romantic one.
