Re: Is Sailing Sexist?

I find that women who do most of the housework in their marriage then tend to generalize about the rest of us.

I do as much , or more housework and domestic duty than my wife does. My wife has never done my laundry. I'm also the primary household money earner, mechanic and builder and sailboat captain. By captain I mean slave of course. I am sure a lot of guys are like me and some are different. But I don't doubt that there are marriages where the wife does all the menial work and the husband is lazy. I'm just not in one and I tend to resent the generalization that women are doing the work because I haven't seen it.
