I think this is because not enough women change light bulbs. They are expected to not be useful and often aren't as a result.

Yes, yes. It's someone else's fault.

I'm not saying it's not her fault. But how else was she going to learn this? It could be her second or third time on the ladder. Is this a mistake that you can't see a man making as well?

I don't like the culture of normalizing women's incompetency. Ultimately, I can respect someone who knows their limits and is open about them. Many don't realize what they can't do and I think that's bad. But even so, if I had a daughter I would not coddle her by doing every handyman thing for her. She should be every bit as handy as a man and still make a good woman.
