What I mean is why can't the husband just sit all day at home watching TV and playing video games while the wife is off at work to make money for the family?
Why is it when a woman leeches off her husband and does nothing all day then it's called a normal part of being a woman.
But if a man does it then everyone especially the women are like "I hope she leaves your lazy ass, she deserves better! Amazing, no ambition whasoever, it's a complete mystery how any woman finds you attractive!"
Like men are supposed to be these machines who should work and toil everyday till their death for the sole purpose of making women comfortable. Women don't have to do anything to justify their existence, they simply have to exist and nothing more, they're women so they're automatically far more valuable than men even if they never accomplish anything in life.

Well, you will never know what it's like to be a woman to see what it's like "on the other side". So far your statement is a bitter complaint to those you, I guess have seen be lazy and do nothing all day.
I don't think people should be lazy and do nothing all day, that's not good for your health. Ideally, it's best if both partners work and provide financial stability to their household. Both should also take care of the chores of the house, if both are working. But if a woman gets pregnant, then she will need time to go through the changes, give birth, and recuperate (maternity leave) before going back to work.
Some people also like the traditional roles. The husband wants to work and provide for his family financially, while his wife is taking care of the house and raising the children (and pets). Not everyone wants this, so if it's not for you, then it's not for you. But some people want it.0

I sympathize with women that stay at home and do housework. I really, honestly do. It can really suck, even if it is taking care of your family. But there seems to be a hypocritical double standard these days, where people think we should shed traditional gender roles, then shame and hate on a man when he doesn't get married or does get married but isn't the "breadwinner". Apparently that makes him not a "real man" and he needs to "grow a pair". There are still these expectations put on guys by the very same people who claim to want to move on from "the past".0
