The holidays are a time for tradition — but don't some traditions belong in the trash?
One woman is asking for advice after her family told her she has to spend the day cooking Thanksgiving dinner just because she's female — all while her brother sits on his butt and watches TV all day. She's taken to Reddit to ask if she's in the wrong.
For all of my life, my mother and I have spent all of Thanksgiving day in the kitchen cooking the meal while my father and older brother have sat around, watched tv, napped, etc. This has always been kinda annoying for me.
Thanksgiving two years ago was a terrible day because things came to a head. It was my first thanksgiving spent with my now boyfriend, and my mom made me come home early from lunch with his family to help her cook. I made the argument that I wasn’t unwilling to help, but it was unfair that I could only spend an hour and a half or two hours with my boyfriend’s family since I needed to cook, yet my brother had no where to go all day, nothing to do, but was not expected to help out at all.
