Assumptions

What is it with men and their automatic assumption that what they do is way more important than anything that women do? Why, specifically, is it OK for the husband to assume that his job - which pays less than mine and has no benefits - takes priority over his child care responsibilities? Why is it OK for him to blow them off and automatically assume that it's OK for me to be late to my job to take care of it?

I don't get it. Why the fuck is that OK?
