I don't think women are disgusting just because they pay for a mans dinner and I don't think it makes him less of a man for letting her. This isn't the stone age where it takes brute strength to provide a meal and many women make just as much or more than men.Fox News host Tucker Carlson on Tuesday asserted that men were not living up to their “manly responsibility” by letting women pay for dinner and by not participating in activities like hunting.

I also don't think it has anything to do with down grading manliness. You can still be a man and women can be women no matter who pays for the meal. Unless you are just going out with her for a free meal then that would make you a user.
Personally I think the person that did the asking for a dinner date should pay.
