    Gentlemen who are married or living with a romantic partner, how diligent are you with performing domestic chores around the house? Does your partner have to nag you before you do housework--or are you the one doing the nagging? What chores do you do--and what are the ones you hate to do?

    I could probably answer this post if you would be so kind as to explain what a REAL MAN is??? Do real men clean up after their own behinds?...is that the question? Do real men pick up their own clothes off the floor?...is that the question? Do real men wash the plates and bowls that they ate out of?....is that the question? Just what is this REAL MAN you're talking about here?

    LOL! Feel free to ignore the expression "real men" in the title if you're unsure about--or disapprove of--the term. There's still some substance in the body of the questions posed, which were...

    how diligent are you with performing domestic chores around the house? Does your partner have to nag you before you do housework--or are you the one doing the nagging? What chores do you do--and what are the ones you hate to do?

    I'd be very interested in your response.

    I've known both male and female friends who've expressed disapproval or embarrassment if someone outside of the household saw the man of the house washing dishes.

    Your responce says to me that you are not from Amerikkka or at least wasn't raised in a Black Community, cause black people in Amerikkka could care less what another black person sees them doing or not doing.

    Really? That's quite a sweeping generalization for millions of people--a very diverse people, I might add. No peer pressure in schools? No groups of black males influencing each other when they exchange views about females? No groups of black females influencing each other when they exchange views about males? No mothers advising their daughters? No fathers advising their sons? None of that?

    Hey...does that mean you're not going to answer my questions?

    I do it all
    Ain't nuthin to a boss
    If it needs cleaned, cut, washed, cooked, dusted, vacuumed, polished, swept, combed, braided, mopped, thrown out etc I get it done.
    My home is my place of peace and when its in order I feel more peaceful.
    The Men around me are the same.
    If I get home from work and my roomate (female) happens to be washing dishes I help rinse, if the living room needs picked up and vacuumed I'm on it, most times.

    No way to justly look at it as women's work.
    If it needs tending to and handled well then...
    handle it

    I grew up in a household with all brothers, so my mother made sure we all did housework.

    I cook (my lasagna is to die for) , vacuum, wash the dishes every day (by hand) and do the laundry every week. I wear a tie to work every day so I iron five shirts every Saturday night (I'm fussy; they have to be just so). My wife cooks, cleans the house including all three bathrooms--I hate scrubbing the toilets--and goes grocery shopping every Saturday--something else I hate doing.

    I hear you, cleaning the bathroom is probably the worst for me too. I have boys who aren't good aimers if you know what I mean.
    Lol
