Russian TV presenter and journalist Tatyana Romanenko, known under the pseudonym Tutta Larsen, said that she seriously intends to practice "kissing her husband's hand every day as a sign of respect and honor." She wrote about this on her Instagram page, after which subscribers criticized such an initiative.
- I constantly think about how tired I am of the stigma of a “strong woman”. Of course, I created such a way of life for myself. I still don't know how to delegate responsibility to my husband, I try to decide everything myself. And this is wildly draining, - said the TV presenter.
According to her, she is satisfied with the patriarchal hierarchy in the family, but even next to a loving husband sometimes she has to "bite my tongue or hit my hands."
Larsen noted that in a conversation with a spiritual person, she learned that in Russia it was accepted that every morning of a wife began with the fact that she took her husband's blessing for the coming day and kissed his hand. She then commented that it was "an interesting exercise in humility."
In the comments to the post, the TV presenter was criticized by users.
“I think the actions themselves are not as important as what you feel. Personally, kissing hands (daily, not in a fit of feelings) seems strange to me. Humility and respect for the husband are manifested in critical situations "," is the man ready for this? "," You do not understand a little what feminists are fighting for, I think. Feminists are fighting for a woman's right to choose how she feels comfortable living "," you can get a penance!"
