Like I said *I* don't see the big deal. I don't see that as sexism personally.
I don't know what else to say really?
Anyway, I'm off to do the dishes, brush my hair and put on some lipstick for DH when he gets home. His newspaper and cup of tea are already waiting.
Kidding! Except for the dishes bit... I really must do those...
Not bothered about it all. I actually laughed. Its a bit of harmless fun.
I think sometimes people read into things too much.

Ah! I would certainly not spend any of MY money in that shop and I'd probably point its sexism out to the owner/manager
Just looking at it..no it doesn't offend me but once you actually start thinking about it, yes it is sexist and incredibly offensive. While a lot of people shrug it off or find it humerous (to each their own) there are still women out there who do actually have husbands who control where and what their money is spent on. While we have come a long way It's still signs like these that make it evident that that type of thinking is still out there and that some women are actually living that reality.
Yeah, it's sexist but I doubt that was their intention. They obviously didn't put much thought into how shoppers would react to a sign like this. Personally, I wouldn't have given it a second thought. It's just a poorly thought out sign.
I probably wouldn't have a second thought about it. Wouldn't have shopped there but that's purely because I've no money to

I reckon all anyone had to do in this instance is let the shop owner know it comes across as very sexist and I reckon they would have taken it down quick smart.
