re: Men Take Time


An e-mail:

Loved this gem from the article you linked: “Excluded from these “core” housework hours were tasks like gardening, home repairs, or washing the car.” Funny how it’s just traditional men’s work that’s excluded. On the plus side, now I can argue that since it’s not recognized as work by a federally funded study, well…it must not need doing. I’ll be sure to use that line next time my wife wants the gutters cleaned or the lawn mowed. I don’t mean to diminish what women do to keep the family running – but clearly, the study authors aren’t afraid to diminish what men do.
