Glass of water test!

Rate this post

There are so many men who in their attempt to impress upon themselves the idea that they are ‘just’ and ‘sensible’ like to make statements to signify that they believe in the ‘equality of men and women’.

And it is so ironical that the larger proportion of these men are so ‘drowned’ in their egos that they don’t even see that they are lying to themselves. Years back I devised a simple test to check whether what they claim to believe is actually what they believe. Am I making sense?

Well the test goes like this:

If you are a man who claims to believe in ‘equality’ (note: not similarity) of genders, then answer this simple question:

“Suppose you and your wife are sitting and watching TV. Both of you aren’t tired or anything, just lazing about. You feel thirsty, and ask your wife to get you a glass of water.”
– Now, is there anything wrong with this scenario?

As expected from any sane person, the answer would be no. What on earth could be wrong with this scenario?

Now… [the twist]

“Suppose you and your wife are sitting and watching TV. Both of you aren’t tired or anything, just lazing about. She feels thirsty, and asks you to get you a glass of water.”
– Now, is there anything wrong with this scenario?

Surprisingly, a lot of men would actually find something WRONG with this.

I have had answers ranging from..
“aa… umm…. If I am standing, I will get it for her.”
“If she is tired, I will get it for her…”
to
“no ways… Why will she ask me to get her a glass of water?”

Unfortunately, a matter of glass of water becomes an issue of hurting egos.
So I would ask all the logical & sensible men to THINK and decide for themselves… how deep are they in the quagmire of ego.

  1. Well, I guess the problem is not in ego (as much as not in bringing a glass of water either), but rather in the mental perception that we have and expect from others. It should not be prejudiced in the first place.
