We all know we are different, so what is there that’s new to tell us about each other?
Shock horror – what sort of sluts are we females?
Let me suggest three reasons why this might be the case.
1 We are too busy doing everything else
2 We have asked someone else to do this for us (a man probably – they are very good at this I find)
3 We are talking about a car to take us from A to B, not live in…
And another survey in the same week says that men feel unsafe when the car is driven by their wife or girlfriend. But not if she is driving sober so he can down a few pints I suspect.
The fact is that these sorts of survey get published and businesses who sponsor them get mentioned, especially online or as fillers in male magazines and motoring publications.
The reason they get published (and then read by people like me) is to do with the differences between the two genders.
Whereas if women drivers were to publish ‘I feel frightened when my husband drives’ (and there must be many of us who do feel that way) there’d be a savage outcry from men whose pride had been dented and because they are fed up reading that women are doing well in all areas of their lives, especially the ones that used to be ‘male domain’.
Whereas we women are the peacemakers (yes, dear, you are the best…), we have a vital sense of humour (…yawn…), realise that none of this trivia matters very much and have more important things to do anyway; family, children, homes, career, community, leisure, holidays, fashion and so on.
Finally we know we are better drivers because insurance companies keep on telling us and they should know.
No contest men – get used to it! Or dig out that sense of humour (you’ll find it below the sense of indignation you feel when anyone challenges your male preserves…).
And it’s perfectly normal for you to feel this way – it’s how we are hard wired respectively.
