Real Men Do “Manly” Things
According to a new Time Health study, men who work in professions dominated by women are likely to spend more time doing typically masculine chores, as a way to assert their manliness. For instance, guys who are teachers may spend Saturday afternoon working on the car, mowing the lawn or fixing things around the house. Experts were surprised at these findings; they thought that men who worked in female-dominated fields would spend more time doing housework generally reserved for women, like cooking and laundry. We say, who’s complaining? At least they’re helping out. The study also found that women are doing fewer hours of housework per week these days, while men are doing more.
