    You can't demand equality on one hand and then sit back and expect a man to pay for dinner on the other.

    Lol, as if anyone on a reality show is actually paying for anything anyway. Moot point.

    That is exactly my point. I find the double standards annoying.

    But how do you know that the women on that show are demanding equality?

    I would get the ****s if a man continually offered to pay for me. I would be politley miffed if someone insisted on paying on a first date - I would try to counteract by passing for dessert or after dinner drinks. That's how I've been brought up though - like a man (seriously I was the son my parents never had!)
    Ha I like that. each to their own I guess. I'm so traditional deep inside tho, it's pretty scary. I was speaking to a career coach who asked me what I wanted to do in life I said "nothing stay home"..lol yea no bright future ahead for me.

    Haha nope wouldn't touch it with a ten foot pole. But my brother was on a reality tv show and it was very eye opening seeing exactly how much of it is contrived. Ie, ALL of it. They are basically unscripted soap operas. Everything is staged- everything.

    I shouldn't! Sigh, I do lots of things that I shouldn't have to but I'd rather do them and get what I want.
