The gross hypocrisy of modern feminism(Original post by Anonymous)
Not just dates, but also when it comes to say buying the groceries for the house, it's always the man that pays. Why?
Feminists go out of their way to protest against the wage gap, sexual objectification and other forms of sexism, but no one bats an eyelid when it comes to issues like men being pressured to paying all the time.
I know most of the females on this forum will say that they wouldn't mind paying for their bit of the meal on a date. But let's not kid ourselves, in the real world men pay almost 99% of the time. I spent a year and a half working as a waiter at a fairly posh restaurant, and I never had any occasion where the female took out her purse. It was always the man who gestured to reach his back pocket to pull out his wallet. I've even worked on the tills at McDonald's and again, it was always the man who paid. I now work on the tills at Sainsbury's, and whenever I have couples coming in shopping, it is always the man who pays.
There is obviously some sort of societal pressure on men to pay.

Because my boyfriend is also male and it'd be awkward to ask my mum.

No one has ever said they HAVE to pay for dates.
