    Research: Women will be doing the housework until 2050

    Research: women will be doing the housework until 2050 - Telegraph

    The opening: "Household chores are a frequent source of domestic disputes between lazy husbands and their hard-working wives, but women have been warned not to expect men to pull their weight any time soon. "

    And this is a MAN that wrote this tripe! Notice that there's hardly any mention of these "lazy husbands" holding a job! Nope, just whining that they don't do "their share" of the housework!

    I found it pretty offensive, because my husband busts his butt at a stressful job, and I don't expect him to help--especially since I feel my job (housewife) is so much easier! I used to work where he does, so I know what he has to deal with.

    "Household chores are a frequent source of domestic disputes between lazy husbands and their hard-working wives, but women have been warned not to expect men to pull their weight any time soon. "
    *twitches*

    I love everything my hubby does around the house he works hard. I work hard to provide money and food for the household. Would this article claim that I'm lazy because I don't do my "fair share" of housework? No! They'll have the nerve to call my hard-working husband a deadbeat.

    Gods, it's like I'm supposed to want to be entitled whore that has everything and I'm not allowed to appreciate what I have. I am so fucking sick of this attitude.

    Re: Research: Women will be doing the housework until 2050

    My mother worked and my dad was disabled. Had he been able to work, he would have done so and Mom would have stayed home.

    I never heard my mother complain about him. She worked to supplement his disability income and she took care of him. He died 11 years ago and I've heard her say that she misses having him to care for.

    That article just honked me off, though. Taking the Supermom thing and totally twisting it around.

    Alexandra well done!
    I know of a bloake who labors all day, only to home to fix the supper than do the housework, wifey is out spending money they do not have, she has filed for divorce three times.
    A man wrote the article, we know there are male feminists who some have labelled manguina, there are men with deviant agendas secretly in place, there are many who seek to distract us.

    Might it not be lovely to find a contact at the Telegraph and call the AM members to joint task, writing the telegraph to complain?

    I heard female "news" casters blathering about this the other day:
    Study Shows That Men Relax More When Women Do All Of The Chores ...

    It's amazing how feminists, in the name of "equality", expect men to do half of the housework, apparently even when the man works outside the home and the woman's job is to manage the home. Are these same women willing to help with half of the home repairs and yard work? Men change light bulbs, fix the sink, clean the garage, cellar and gutters, mow the lawn, and take care of the car etc. Women do the dishes and laundry, vacuum, dust and cook. Which is harder?

    According to empirical studies, men already spend a few minutes more (like between 8-15 minutes if memory serves me well) on working per day. It is hypocrite to make 'demands on top of that.

    Re: Research: Women will be doing the housework until 2050

    I know my dad used to get frustrated at not being able to do a lot of stuff because of his heart condition. I got enlisted to help him assemble furniture, waterproof the deck, clean the gutters, and mow the lawn. My sister copped an attitude or did a shoddy job, so she hardly lifted a finger. Or she conveniently disappeared over to a friend's house.

    I'm good at assembling furniture, I hardly need the manual! :P

    So will there be a headline about Men Doing Work Until 2050 as well, regarding the fact that more women opt out of careers much earlier than men?
    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

    So, come 2050, who will be doing the housework?

    I have been doing my own housework for the past ten years or so and never once has a woman volunteered to help.

    It would seen from the article that if I live until I am 106, I will get a break.

    Re: Research: Women will be doing the housework until 2050

    Maybe I should start calling my ex wife a lazy person for not helping me out when I re-shingled the roof, or when I fixed the appliances or kept the cars in working order, or when I put wood-flooring in all the rooms, or when I remodeled the kitchen and bathroom, or when I built my kids room or when I made all three meals a day for twelve years cuz she can't cook. My son now tells me she still isn't cooking, her boyfriend has taken that also as chore, while she does what she does. I can still recall that every sunday I would make a quick study of the house and whizz through it making it spotless for the week to come. Come to think of it, I did most of everything, and worst of all, I believed I wasn't doing enough cuz of feminist crap like this article that was bombarding me left and right, until my separation, that is.

    The Parental Alienation that followed opened my eyes WIDE to everything, from family court to legislation to false rape etcetera(the list is too long)

    Loosing all my hard earned woodfloors and all was nothing compared to the dismemberment of a loved one. That is how I compare having my son taken away from me for two full years. It was like having a limb torn off. hurt just as much I suppose, just in a different way. Maybe I'm just lazy!!

    Re: Research: Women will be doing the housework until 2050

    My children's mother isn't too different, Nick. When we were together I worked the day job and would come home to clean up. She would attempt cooking, and for several years lived on greasy burgers and chips (fries) because she rarely bothered to attempt any proper, nutritious meals. Since living on my own, I've kind of been forced to learn to cook - and yes, I do cook burgers and chips and yes I do buy junk foods from take-aways and all that - but I have learned to cook proper meals too.
    One of the days, after cooking a full Sunday-roast, I used some bread to soak up the gravy on my plate. My kids looked a bit 'gone out' by it so I asked them if they use bread to clean up their gravy. The younger one replied to say "We don't have gravy", so I asked how come and they both replied "We don't have these kinds of meals at moms". I pushed further and asked what kind of foods they do eat. I asked this because when their mother and I had been talking about food, she had claimed to me that they all ate healthily these days, and went on to mention fruits and vegetables.. So I was expecting to hear a reply along the lines of roasts but minus the gravy. But no, instead they listed items like waffles, burgers, chips, and so forth. So much for healthy eating claims. Since then, I've been teaching my kids to cook proper foods, but I only get them one or two days out of every 14. It's a shame that the one has the opportunity to teach them so much chooses not to.
    Similarly, while I can't complain about the 'general' state of her home, I do have some room. Often, when dropping the kids off or collecting them, I'll go in for 1/2hr or so. Rarely is there a seat available due to piles upon piles of washing and rubbish (and yes, I mean rubbish) being dumped on top of them. I've been given a drink in dirty, stained cups and it begs the question what state do the children eat and drink from? I've seen piles and piles of dirty plates, cups, filthy work-surfaces, and all that in their kitchen - and the absolute worst, was when I asked to use their loo. It looked like a damn speckled hen. I don't know how long it had been since she'd thought to clean it, but I couldn't go near it.
    I spoke to a special line for child-neglect and got the impression they aren't interested in mothers who sit on their arse all day & night. Apparently, as her ex, who she has tried to alienate from our children, it is better that I offer to help her out than report her for neglect. Don't get me wrong, I don't want to report her - and I do help her out (I get some groceries now and then to ensure she has some decent foods in for the kids). I recall one such occasion, I asked her three weeks one whether she had one of the bags of veg I could have back to use (I didn't actually want it, just wanted to see if they'd been used yet)... she told me herself, she'd still got all of them.
    The most offensive thing you can do to a feminist is treat her with FULL equality.

    If we're so bad, then stop forging relationships with us, ladies........oh, no, you probably won't, because who would then take out the rubbish, do the garden, the decorating, general D.I.Y., walk in the rain to get food, ferry you around, pay for everything, and generally do all the 'manly' stuff that is okay to lumber us with?

    Frightening, Marx. I do hope your children's mother is at least educated in the proper way of preparing and cooking meat. Preparing meat is crucial for a pain free digestive experience. Serving food on dirty plates or surfaces that have not been washed prior to slapping a pork chop and then using said dirty surface to cut salad is not safe fore salmonella and other bacteria.

    On the cleaning point of things, I can only imagine things are as they were with my ex. Which means adequate. Were I worry, is the inactivity of my boy. But that is for another thread.

    I wonder if the feminist movement considers mowing the lawn or snowblower, and other necesary household chores such as this when coming up with nonsense such as this article. When one spends almost 4 hours mowing and raking the lawn, I would consider this work on the same page as mopping a kitchen floor.

    Now of course, if the article talks of a mother who stays at home and cares for the kids, while her mate goes out for a 40hr/week job, I just don't get the complaints. Even if the male didn't mow the lawn and let her do it, I would still think it equal. I mean how much work is invovled in cleaning house. If one were to clean an average house all day every day for 40hrs a week, I would imagine this place would having the protective coating of the floor rubbing off. I have been single for 5 yrs now. I manage 40+hr weeks, clean house, dishes, cooking, clothes washing etcetera, and still find time to do social and hobbies. I might add my place of residence is spotless, obsessively so. Since I work in a grubby environment all day long, I do not want to see filth in my personal space. The calluses of my hands do hate the dish washing though.

    I think too much fast food makes my son act up. I've been giving him healthier stuff when I can...bread that's not overly processed, fish oil, juice with no sugar added...and I made a folder and put recipes in it. I need to get back to making bread again...my husband LOVES my cheese bread!

    Anyone have a use for a knitted sweater, US boys' size 6/8? My son outgrew the one I made for him.... LOL
