I really don’t know why I started reading For Better or for Worse on purpose. It used to be just another comic that I glanced at when looking through the Sunday Comics as a kid. And somehow, I seem to be following it again, even after the re-start.

And these two strips just bug me. Possibly because I find traditional (translation: 1950s) gender roles to be annoying and inapplicable to today’s world. Possibly because it feels to me like that father is putting the mother down or lessing her role in the household. I don’t know. But it does bother me.
