I think this is the dumbest thread, I've ever seen on this forum! Men are men, and women are women. . .I am a man, and damn it! I love women! If people get so low as to get into discussions over garbage, and dishes, I think you just don't have enough to do, and/or to discuss! Who gives a damn as to who does what? If it needs to be done. . .DO IT!
Maybe the woman is too tired to do the dishes. . .Then, MEN. . .do the damn things!. . .I don't think it was ever meant that the household chores were to be "gender specified"! Sharing a household means just that. . .SHARING!
Personally, I don't like dirty dishes in the sink. . .Since I don't like dirty dishes in the sink, I feel it's just easier to take a couple of minutes to clean them, rather than "playing sandbox", over who's duty it is to perform, such a menial task! And. . .Taking out the garbage. . .Wow! That should take all of 3 to 5 minutes???
Has nothing to do with who's smartest, who's in charge, who's the dumbest, or who wears the penis, or the vagina. . .It's all about a matter of respect, for those we love. . .Mike 13:13, Verses 1 through 13 :-)
