I grew up in an awesome little bubble of the world where, despite having huge boobs, the only looks at my chest I got from men were clumsy, trying but failing to be discreet looks from drunk guys. I grew up in a house where my mum preferred to fix the plumbing and my dad had absolutely no interest in that but would love to cook dinner, and no one thought much of it. At parties, men and women mingled and talked about music, politics, life plans, whatever. Children ran around and played and got plopped on a bed or a pile of coats (by father OR mother) to sleep when it got late.
Later, I moved in with my now husband, only a few hours away from where I grew up and experienced massive culture shock. Walking down the street in summer, wearing modest-length shorts and a non-revealing tanktop I got leers. And not just a few -from almost every guy I passed. I had never experienced anything like this in my life. I felt embarassed and threatened. When my husband and I were looking at motorhomes to buy, I was generally ignored, even if I asked a question, and the male salespeople talked only to my husband...until the subject of the kitchen came up. Then I was all his. The parties I went to were weird. The guys stood outside and talked about dirtbikes and trucks. The women stood in the kitchen and talked about other people they all knew, weddings, and their kids (who were always left at home). At my sister-in-law's wedding, my husband put together a gorgeous flower arrangement. Everyone kept thanking me for doing it.
I'm now a feminist.
