I got the same Facebook viral photo of "you never hear a man offer to buy a woman a book in the bookstore, but only a drink at a bar". Seriously?? And you call yourself a feminist? I don't quite understand this expectation that men are automatically expected to purchase a woman something just to show that he likes her. That is the problem with this society is that everyone feels like they are deserved something for nothing. For a feminist to perpetuate that "Female Entitlement" ideology than men owe all women something. To be honest, the only women who I, as a man, owe anything to is my mother for giving birth to me and the woman who will give birth to my child. For everyone else, its a gift, so hold on to your expectations unless I have a 100% guarantee of you putting out for that book.
