My how times have changed

The TV series “Turn” about the revolutionary war, reminded me that men and women have reversed roles. Back then, men wore wigs, sometimes with elaborate curls, adorned with ribbons and bows, topped by fancy hats, with plumes. Despite the ruffles on the cuffs of shirts, the short pants, and long stockings men walked with determined steps and demonstrated authority. Women wore long dresses and were covered except for the tops of their bosoms exposed enough to declare femininity and perhaps a tease. There was no question who was male or female. Today young men walk in a strange way to keep their pants from falling down with underwear exposed for all to see. Many have become sissified, no longer men of valor. Young women expose almost all leaving nothing to the imagination and many have assumed the role that once belonged to men. At times one cannot tell the difference between the two. Decorum has been lost. Do not get me wrong, I am not a proponent of women barefoot and pregnant under the dominance of men. I see nothing wrong with women having careers or achieving success. But, on the other hand I love when a man opens my car door, holds a door open for me, helps me with a package, removes his hat in respect, or stands when a lady enters the room. Call me old-fashioned, but I enjoy being a woman. My desire is that men would return to being real men. How many would agree?
