约会和现代性别关系…谁付钱? (Dating and Modern Gender Relations…Who Pays?) - 美国马尾妹 - 花旗国的半边天
 过去,当男士和女士出去约会时, 男士都理所当然的要为晚餐,电影或其他消费去掏钱。今天,男士应该为约会付钱的专责不再向过去一样被认为是毋庸置疑了。 事实上, 我发现和我年龄相近的女生(20岁左右)正在为女士是否应该让男士付钱的问题展开了争论, 其中夹杂了女权主义的观点。

It used to be automatically assumed that when a man and a woman went out on a date, the man would always pay for the dinner, the movie, or any other expenses. This idea that men should have the sole responsibility for paying for dates is today by no means the unquestioned assumption that it once was. Indeed, I find that among women my age (late teens to early twenties) whether or not women should allow men to pay is a rather contentious issue that has become intertwined with ideas of feminism.

I asked a few of my friends who they thought should pay for a date and though their exact responses varied, they seemed to generally agree that the idea that only guys should pay for dates is outdated. One of my friends thought that whoever asked the other person out should pay for the first date, but each person should pay for themselves on any subsequent dates. Another friend said that she personally preferred paying for herself, but added that she thought it was nice if the guy treated sometimes as long as the girl reciprocated. Nonetheless, I have met girls at college who do believe that the guy should always pay. I personally disagree with this last opinion because I think that in relationships, it is important that both people involved treat each other as equals and it is hard to do this if one person is always paying. It seems that the person who pays somehow has more power and more importance in the relationship and that the assumption that guys should always pay for dates is a remnant from a society in which men and women were not considered equals.
