Domesticity

Men and women clearly have different opinions on the way a household should be run. This modern age of protean gender roles has brought a new form of conflict to the lives of men. I often wonder if the reason we don't do housework well is due to our origin as hunters. Out on the plains throwing pointy sticks at mammoths you didn't have a lot of needs, just a fire, a soft patch of grass and a couple of buddies to pass the time with, hurling good-natured jibes at each other. No need to do the dishes; just drop the bones where they lay and move along.
