Lets do something: I won't tell you what you have to do, and what you
can or can't do, and you don't tell me what I have to do. Seriously,
and please don't take this wrong, I don't think you're qualified
enough to make a sociological analysis of what women are like, so
unless you provide references to support what you're saying, I cannot
take your words seriously (further than meaning that you're happy with
the current statu quo and want to maintain it, of course).
The sentence "I know enough women that understood the difference
between men and women, and happily let their husbands to fix things"

reason why you brought this topic here, anything that might make you
think that our work is of less quality than yours, that I might be

I would like the society to be more polite to all women, and to
everybody in general, thanks :)
I'm almost sure that this last paragraph has some subtle innuendo
embedded which I'm not really sure to be able to decipher, so I cannot
comment any more on that.
