Why Do Women Always Have To Look After Their Man’s Health?

Is it too much to ask that they look after their own — and maybe even ours?

Maybe you saw it, the video of Jill Biden pulling her masked husband, Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden, away from reporters to keep him socially distanced.

“So, answer isn’t that women ‘have to be in charge of their man’s health,” but they’re probably more conscious of risk & thus more concerned with it. Additionally, my BF notices things he can do for me (& does them) w/o my thinking of them or asking — & out of love, not ‘have to’”

And there you go. If you’re a hetero woman and want a romantic partner, find yourself a man who will notice things he can do for you and do them without you having to think of them or ask for them out of love, and not because he “has to.” In other words, someone who is as conscious and concerned as you are (and why shouldn’t he be?)
