#WednesdayWisdom: The more things change…

Standard

No idea what the weather is doing today, and that’s the truth. I think it’s gray, but it’s bright, and possibly it’s about to rain. Outside is confused.

Fair enough. I am too.

I’ve been streaming “The Love Boat,” which is still entertaining after all these years, and it’s surprising how easily you could adapt some of the clothes for today, entire outfits that would work if you switched out the shoes or the accessories. So many decades between then and now, so much the same.

I’m struck by how often a husband is having an affair, and how often it’s attributed to a wife paying too much attention to her work and not enough attention to him. She always has an epiphany, “Ah yes, I did this! I neglected him,” and then I wonder why aren’t men required to be adults?

Has that changed?

I mentioned this on twitter with an earlier episode and according to the responses, it has not. Society still holds women accountable for the actions of men, as though men are weak creatures devoid of any agency or responsibility. Is that really how they want to be viewed?

If nothing is ever their fault, is anything ever their accomplishment?

It’s worth considering. Anyway that’s it for me, have a wonderful Wednesday.
