Of course, you are!

Because it’s not happening to you…

Check out this story from Reddit’s “Am I the A**hole?” page and see if you think this woman was out of line.

AITA for refusing to cut my husband’s nails and hair after he refused to cut my toe nails when I was pregnant?

“I am African and my husband is Jamaican. When we were dating, I started cutting his nails (toes and hands) just for fun.

I am a very caring person, so it made me very happy to cut his nails while we were watching a movie or something. We got married a little bit before Covid hit so on top of cutting his nails, I started cutting his hair as well because barbershops were closed.

I truly enjoyed myself doing these things especially styling his beard that I asked him to keep because I like the look. I never asked him to do such thing in return simply because I am a control freak and like to do things on my own.

All was going well until I got pregnant. I kept doing all these things for him, as the belly got bigger, I couldn’t reach and cut my own toenails. So, one day as I was struggling to do it myself, my husband walked in the room and I asked him to help me cut my nails.

His reaction shocked me as he said that he can never do that because he is a man. I brought to his attention that I have been doing it for him for years and I am only asking because I can’t do it myself. He told me that I can do it for him because I am a woman, but him cutting my nails would be diminishing and I am trying to emasculate him.

His response broke my feelings because I truly thought that he would be happy to take care of me, the same way I was doing for him. So, I told him that I wouldn’t be cutting his nails or his hair.

Sometimes I see his long nails and he looks so unkept, and it drives me crazy. Sometimes he has an important meeting at work, and I look at the hair and beard that need trimming but I resist the urge to do something about it because he made me feel so inferior as a human being and it wasn’t the best feeling.”
