Actually, quite a number of women on this thread have posted from their own experience, including me. Yeah, I don't like the notion that men should ask and pay "because they are men." That doesn't sit well with me. But, my experience is that, if I did the asking (which meant also the paying, because I think that one follows the other), I did not get treated properly in the relationship. I don't see why I should put up with a partner who is emotionally uninvested in the relationship, just so I can reject a tradition that someone else tells me is sexist.
Sexism is making decisions based on chromosomes instead of people. Rotely rejecting a sexually asymmetrical tradition can also be a form of sexism.
