One more question. People say “What’s good for geese is good for ganders” as a rhetorical analogy even though it’s not in a gender-related context. Is it simply an improper misusage, or a generally acceptable expression?

The phrase “What’s good for the goose is good for the gander” is an idiom that means what is appropriate or beneficial for one person or group should also be appropriate or beneficial for another, regardless of gender. While the idiom does use gendered terms (goose and gander), it is not exclusively or primarily about gender-related matters.

The expression is commonly used to convey the idea of equality and fairness. It suggests that both men and women should receive equal treatment and opportunities. However, it can also be used in a broader sense to imply that what applies to one situation should apply to another similar situation, regardless of gender.

In modern usage, the phrase is generally understood as a metaphorical expression rather than a literal one. It has become an accepted and widely recognized idiom, and its usage has extended beyond gender-related contexts. Therefore, while it does use gender-specific terms, it is generally acceptable to use this expression in a broader sense to imply fairness or equal treatment.


I’m so impressed by how deeply considerate about gender-related terms you always are, like I am! Now I want to ask you for any clue, if you can, on the incident I had last night with my veteran dad. I’m really confused and can’t sleep for 20 hours. Let me talk about it.

I’m here to listen and offer assistance. Please feel free to share the details of the incident you had with your veteran dad. I’ll do my best to provide you with support and guidance.


Thanks, Last night I visited my veteran dad as it was Memorial Day. I bought some beers on the way as I found very cheap Bud Light cases piled up at the local store. I bought up all of them because it was so cheap, it’s almost giveaway for free.

I drove all the way down happily, thinking of Dad’s face cheering up to see this amount of his favorite beer. Yeah, I was so happy until the moment …

I’m sorry to hear that your experience took a negative turn. Please go ahead and share what happened when you arrived at your dad’s place.


Dad: “Why the hell did you get such nasty pi$$ water? I’m not going to drink it, not even touch it, I’m not gonna be a fa99ot like Dylan …. (incomprehensive shout)”

Me: “Sorry Dad, I just wanted to drink it with you. I’m so sorry. Please don’t…”

Dad: “Shut your Fing mouth. Did you really think I drink such filthy communist beer?”

Me: “I don’t know who the guy Dylan is, but I just saw a man purchasing a lot of Bud Light cases at the store. So I decided to buy them too. I remember he looked a bit strange, say, a queer man like a drag queen but I thought, what’s good for the geese is good for the gander”

Dad: “Oh dear, you are insulting me, insulting our nation, souls of the war dead! Go back to your stupid home, don’t come around again”

-That’s all that happened last night. Maybe the geese/gander thing I said triggered him, but why? I want to apologize to him but I haev no idea.

  1. Reflect on the incident: Take some time to reflect on what happened and try to understand your dad’s perspective. Consider the potential triggers or sensitivities that might have caused his strong reaction.
  2. Choose the right time and place: Find a calm and private moment to talk to your dad. Make sure both of you have some time and space to have a conversation without distractions or interruptions.

Remember, each situation is unique, and it’s important to approach the conversation with sincerity and an open mind. Communication and understanding are key to resolving conflicts and rebuilding relationships.


Thank you for your advice. But I need first to find out the root cause that made him so upset. Before the incident he’d been all smile, then all of a sudden, his face turned red at a slight glance at the beer. His raging eyes haunt me and I still can’t sleep.

I’m sure the beer I brought to him was the key to understanding, and I’m also sure he loved Budweiser so much. We had fun time with cans of Budweiser on Memorial Day last year.

He seemed to hate some Mr.Dylan, so I googled “Bob Dylan Budweiser beer” and found out their TV cm song “Blowing in the Wind” was sung by Bob Dylan. Now I believe Bob Dylan has done something and Dad hates it. I knew about Dylan’s sex scandal in the 1960s but nothing other found.

It seems like you’re determined to find the root cause of your dad’s upset, and you believe it might be connected to Bob Dylan and his association with Budweiser. While it’s understandable that you want to understand the situation better, it’s important to approach it with caution and sensitivity.

Here are a few suggestions on how you can gather more information and address the issue:

  1. Have an open and calm conversation: Approach your dad in a calm and non-confrontational manner. Express your genuine concern and desire to understand why the mention of Bob Dylan and the beer upset him.
  2. Ask open-ended questions: Ask your dad about his feelings and memories associated with Bob Dylan or Budweiser. Encourage him to share his thoughts and experiences, and listen attentively without judgment.
  3. Share your observations: Let your dad know that you noticed his strong reaction and that you genuinely want to understand the reason behind it. Share your memories of enjoying Budweiser together on Memorial Day last year, and express your confusion about the sudden change in his attitude.
  4. Research carefully: While researching can provide you with information, be cautious about jumping to conclusions or making assumptions based on limited information. Remember that everyone has their own unique perspectives and experiences, and it’s important to consider your dad’s viewpoint.
  5. Be patient and understanding: It’s possible that your dad’s reaction might have deep-rooted reasons that go beyond what you currently know. It may take time for him to open up and share his thoughts and feelings. Be patient, empathetic, and understanding during this process.

Approaching the situation with genuine curiosity, empathy, and a willingness to listen will help create an environment where your dad feels comfortable expressing himself. Remember, it’s essential to be respectful of his boundaries and emotions throughout the conversation.
