Changing light bulbs is not a feminist issue

Certain males in my life maintain that I am pathetic because I don't change my own light bulbs. Some of them seem to think that *some* females see it as a "male" chore.

Last night I stood teetering on a chair, still barely able to reach my bathroom light bulb that blew last week, feeling a bit dizzy and unsteady and totally unable to dislodge the damn thing just to prove them wrong. And in this position, I realised why I don't change light bulbs, and it's got nothing to do with my sex and everything to do with the facts that I am too short and have no idea what I am doing when all the blood has rushed away from my head and I am about to fall off a chair on slippery tiles.

I discovered a lamp instead and showered in mood lighting.
