Unfortunately, you are correct. I think the women born before the boomers were brought up to be subservient to men in every way. I have a neighbor and a friend who is a new widow who have both told me they had to have the meal on the table when the man got home, the children had to be her responsibility and out of the way until he had eaten, the women could only do menial task jobs outside the home (nothing professional) and tend to their homes and their family. So it is probably very difficult for these much older men to get it through their head that times have changed. I now know women who are the breadwinners and the husband is the house husband who takes care of the home and the children. Unfortunately, I think we have to wait for the older generation of men to die off before much changes.

In my home things were so very different. My Mother was a college educated women with a degree, my Father was an Engineer. She worked for as long as I can remember, he had his own business. I adored my Father who was so proud of us all and I married a man very much like my Father in his thinking. I take care of my husband because I WANT to, not because it is expected of me and my husband treats me the same way.

I don't think it is men per se, but some of the few villagers who think they are entitled or self important that infringe on all of us whether in the market, on the road, at the restaurants or the golf courses. They are that way no matter where they go. But the rest of the people here are wonderful.

There are some people with Alzheimer’s or dementia that may be effecting their behavior.

"Nasty looking old man".......really........how about "Inconsiderate elderly man" Don't judge all of us by the actions of one.

Yes, I agree with not judging the gender.

What Happens When a Woman Walks Like a Man?

This was one of a few informal tests that were done out there. You don't have to believe me, it's easy to prove; just have your wife walk a few feet in front of you in a crowd or down a busy sidewalk/store, and tell her to not get out of anybody's way. She doesn't have to be aggressive about it, just walking normally. Then watch. Try not to hit anybody.

Interesting reading, I wonder where the experiment was done.
