It's funny (funny = strange not funny = ha ha) the things that people unconsciously imbibe from their environment.
I have the TV on and caught the end of a show on NTA a few minutes ago (I think it was a lifestyle or health show). The presenter (woman) had a guest (man) on who was talking (I think) about couples managing their home. He urges men not to treat their wives like housegirls or servants and reminds them that women need love too.
As the presenter wraps up the show, she re-iterates that men need to take care of their wives adding that "They are not just housegirls and servants."
Not just? Hmmm, thanks for that.
