Having a month-long trip booked to Philippines coming up, I’ve been talking with many Filipinos and Filipinas. One thing I’ve found immensely refreshing is the women make efforts to not only care for, but build their men up- make them invincible against threats and set them up to take on the world.
One woman in particular said, “if I want to be a queen, I have to treat you like a king.”
These behaviours laugh in the face of of every head-butting feminist. It’s win-win! The women give a little, in mere words mind you, and in turn, they make their men better providers and caretakers of the family unit (which comes back to the women).
This is one of the true natures of women and mothers: nurturers.
Over and out-
