Ask Sujeiry: Should I Break Up with My Machista Man?

Jamaican Macho ManTrain that macho macho man?

Dear Sujeiry,

I recently began a relationship with a wonderful Latino man. We were fast and furious and things were going great until he expressed his views on male and female gender roles. He said he expects a woman to take care of the kids and that he doesn’t respect women who sleeps around. Oh, and that men have a right to do so because it’s in their DNA!

Ugh. It was such a turn off. I consider myself a feminist. I don’t know if I can be with a man who has such a backwards mentality. So I seriously need your relationship advice. Should I break up with my machista man?

Sincerely,

Dating a Cave Man

Dear Dating a Cave Man,

Aaaah! A macho man! How Latinas hate to date them but do anyway because a lot of Latino men are raised to think that men can do anything they please. And women cannot. It’s an issue a lot of women who date Latinos face, myself included. But should you break up with him?

I say talk to him first. This may be his viewpoint because of how he was raised. He is ignorant and needs to be schooled. Question is do you want to be the lady that does so? Do you want to break out your feminist super power and zap him until he learns that women can do what men can do? And sometimes even better.

It’s up to you and if the relationship is worth saving. You say he’s great every other way, so maybe this machista Latino needs a feminist lady to set him straight and open his eyes to what’s right.

Love,

Sujeiry
