Re: time to vent now gender/work

With all this gender talk, I thought this might be of interest.

Don't know what folks would call west central IL...but here, most of the women mow the lawn. I have steadfastly refused to do so, as I know DH would happily cede the job to me...and I most emphatically don't do lawns. With 2.5 acres, the planting and weeding are quite enough thank you!

Well, I've never lived in the Bible belt and probably never will, though
since I left western Massachusetts I somehow keep ending up in very
conservative counties/towns. There are a LOT of people out there who think
dad brings home the paycheck, fixes the car, and mows the lawn while mom
keeps the house, fixes dinner and raises the kids; or if that's not how it's
happening, it's the way it should (always) happen.

Around here, as far as yard work and snow shovelling, it certainly is more
convenient to stay warm and relaxed inside while the men do the work... why
do I have to have my own snow shovel? <LOL>
