Women who use men

Lately, it has become fashionable to bash the independent, career-oriented woman who really does not need a man in her life (blah, blah fish-cake, as we used to say).
We have been at this bash-fest so long that, quite frankly, we are forgetting that other brand of ‘bad lady’. The type who cannot do without a man in her life!
First on this list are women who behave like domestic helps and believe that that is the ‘be and end all’ of relationships. These are the women who are experts at cooking and cleaning, always urging their already bulging-at-the-belly feller to ‘eat more’, and the type who become bellicose on the odd occasion the man dares to eat ‘outside’.
One isn’t saying a woman should not iron a shirt and knot his tie for him. But if this mboch role is the only one you have to offer as a woman, he may as well be bedding the maid.
Then there is the breed, and I believe I have bitched about this before, who treats men like a coterie of the government’s consolidated fund.
By this I mean those women who look at their monthly budget and then apportion different men different budgetary roles, like they’re Robinson’s rats in a rotten Finance Ministry.
So that there is the cuckold who will pay her rent, the fool who will fuel her Fiat, the sod who will deal with her clothes and salon expenses, and the sot to sort out her entertainment on Saturdays.
The problem with treating multiple men like items is; danger is never far — whether internal (STDs), or external (people chasing each other half nude through the estate, machete in the air, when your 40 days as a mwizi are over).
Then there are the ‘working class’ lasses who, nonetheless, truly believe in the idiotic axiom, “His money is our money. But my money is my money,” never mind that you both get a pay-slip month end or dual incomes from biashara.
