That moment when the Thanksgiving turkey is brought to the dining room table. Notice the cook in the background and the father/grandfather taking all the glory ;) #Thanksgiving in 1960

Because of the Corona virus this will be the first time in 45 years that we don´t have a Thanksgiving dinner in this house. Usually there´s a lot of us around the table. Hoping for 2021!

Bernice Jones Of course they thanked him! Just like we thanked my dad as well as my mom...because my mom's work didn't earn her an income, so, without my dad working long hours for 45 years, we wouldn't have had the turkey.

Amazing how easily some people’s masculinity is threatened.

Cat Murray Funny that you assume it's a she that posted this but you're probably right. Regardless, it's really sad that y'all can look at a nice family photo and see nothing but your own negative feelings towards men projected when all he is doing is carrying something. It's like a Rorschach for the dysfunctional. Want to know what I see? A woman that is very happy and a man that is trying not to drop something heavy and hot. Period.

I see a lady, who probably spent most of the day in the kitchen....hubby is proud of his wife so he's helping serve the bird. My late husband did that...and then he'd carve it up.

Ann Weagle Why? Because you put it on a platter? Is that a rule?

And maybe he was just showing the family the turkey, how nice it looked, ready to be eaten. He could have taken it back to the kitchen where it was put on a platter.

Or maybe he was saying something like, "Look at the great turkey your mom cooked for us!"

Why do people make assumptions and assign words or feelings to the people in pictures??? And why assume that, because you do something a certain way, everyone ought to or else they're in the wrong?

Why are so many people so judgmental??

This is a true picture of how it was in the 60’s. Yes, the man/father was proud to feed his family. Yes, they did bring it to the table in a roasting pan. Funny, all the judgement, times have changed. Be grateful for what you have. There are no rules!

Yeah, I don't get the snark of this post. The cook looks perfectly happy. And it might be heavy enough she'd rather Ed carry it (calling him Ed). Plus I'm guessing it's his job to carve. So she did her part, now he's doing his. All good... Until Ed drops the bird. Dang it, Ed.

I can't get over the comments on here about this dad carrying out the turkey!

My mom did the cooking, and my dad thanked my mom for her great cooking, and she was proud to have been able to do it as well as proud that her husband worked hard to provide for the family.

My parents were equals, and they each did what they did best. There were times when, because of big medical bills, after she cooked us supper, my mom worked a part-time night job in a sewing factory, and during those times, my dad drove her to her job (my mom never wanted to learn to drive), came home and washed up the dishes and cleaned up the kitchen, helped us with homework, and got us ready and into bed. At midnight, he would gather us up and into the car, and we'd go pick up my mom.

At 5 a.m., they would both be up...my mom fixing my dad breakfast and packing his lunch and my dad going off to work at a job as a machinist and not getting back home again...covered in metal dust and and grease...till 6 p.m. when we ate supper...and then they'd do it all again.

I learned that lesson well, and my husband and I raised our boys the same way...my husband worked at a job, sometimes 2 jobs, and I took care of the home, food, and kids because his job paid more than any job I could have gotten (I had little experience and only a high school education back then). He handed me his paycheck every week with a figure of how much he'd need for the week for gas and some lunches. I also did the budget and paid the bills because I was good at that.

But there were times when he'd come home, eat what I cooked, and then he'd wash the dishes. And there were times that I chopped the wood for our wood stove. There were no man's jobs or woman's jobs...we did what needed to be done for the welfare of the family and our roles were not ruled by gender or foolish societal limits.

In an effort to want women to be seen as equals, I'm afraid some folks have gone way to the other extreme and lost the true heart of what a family is...no specific roles, just whoever was available and could do the job...did the job. What mattered was keeping the family going. And everyone was grateful for it and proud of each other.

Sure, society made narrow rules in the past and, to some extent, still does, but in hundreds and hundreds of real families, everyone pitches in without worrying over gender roles. It's how families survive.

Ree Young you have just told the story of my family as well. I grew up on the farm. Sometimes my mom drove tractors and sometimes my dad helped with the household chores. But every decision that was made was made together. They were equal partners and had mutual respect. They both worked hard from sunup to sundown at whatever was the task at hand, without complaint, and still found time to make a great family life for their children. I am truly blessed to have been raised by them. And as others have said, I find this trifling caption to be indicative of only the authors own tainted viewpoint.

On occasions like Christmas or Thanksgiving, my Dad, who never did anything “housework-y” (not a crack... Mom and Dad both worked full-time jobs and raised 5 kids) would announce that he would do the dishes.

He would stack them, clean them off, fill the sink with practically boiling water and enough soap to wash a battleship, carefully wash each plate and dish, knife and fork... and then load them into the dishwasher...

Dad DID take care of us when my Mom was in hospital when my sister and brother were born and was recovering from the Caesarean Sections, and when she had to have surgery once.

Dinner was always charred steak (Dad liked his steak VERY well-done), canned string beans and reconstituted powdered potato flakes. Mom was not a GREAT cook but we were always glad when she was able to cook again.

Everyone wants equal rights, but only at their convenience. I always have carved the Turkey. I guarantee most women wouldn't do outside what I do year round. Not to mention what I do inside the home cleaning house. Without be asked or nagged. It's my home as well.
