I was talking about my dreams for college when my father said, “You don’t need to worry too much about that. You’re a pretty girl, you just find yourself a nice boy and you won’t have to work a day in your life.”

I told him that I wanted a degree so that I could support myself, and that I have no intentions of marrying anybody just yet. “You’ll learn soon enough that you don’t like working.” He told me. “That’s why the men do it for you pretty ladies. You’ll like it better at home. Trust me, or better yet, ask your mother!” Then he went on to list all the things I could do at home if my husband worked, which include; cooking, cleaning, doing my makeup, etc.

What am I supposed to do with that?
