Teen turns mom's s*xist argument against her 😎

Growing up with parents who have outdated beliefs can be challenging. It's even more frustrating when they use those beliefs to justify their actions, as was the case with this teen's mom. After getting scolded for wearing a pink shirt and being told that "men don't color their hair," the teen decided to use his mom's own s*xist argument against her when she asked him to wash the dishes.

The result? A screaming match and some unresolved tension. But who's in the wrong here? AITA? Let's dive into the comments and see what Redditors have to say about this family conflict.
