    Keeping house

    Currently, I'm sharing a house with a bloke who has been a friend of mine for several years. He came into this out of a relationship that sucked all the money and happiness out of his life ... but that's another story.

    We both work full-time jobs.

    We keep house. We cook, we clean, we each do laundry for ourselves on the weekend. The house is neat and clean and doesn't have piles of crap laying about on every horizontal surface. We have a couple of Ikea bookshelves, and personal trophies that we would like to have on display in the front room belong there. The kitchen is clean, organised, and and good to go; the toilet is decently hygienic. Both of us brush the thing afterwards. On Mondays, we have a group over to play boardgames - all blokes at present - and we cook for six people and clean up afterwards (that is: usually dude cooks, but sometime I have a go). Lasagna. Soup. 2kg of roasted meat, with veg. Slow-cooked stew: meat, rice, herbs and spices. Eat, scrape plates, into the dishwasher, play game for a few hours, unload dishwasher and put plates away.

    It takes almost zero effort.

    I have no idea where women get the idea that keeping house - if you don't have kids - is a full time job, an uphill climb, a trial, a battle deserving of a goddamn medal. Granted that kids is probably a different story. But bitches without kids are fucking ridiculous about how much work it takes to keep a house neat. Oh, the stress! Oh, the martyrdom! Oh, my partner (who works full time while I sit at home all day doing fuck all) doesn't help with the housework, the bastard!

    Don't cohabit with a woman. Just don't.

    They do it with everything. Even women that have a job make it look so that they are working to much, that it is difficult, and they are exausted.
    That is a preemptive strategy so that others dont realise how good they got it. They must always be the victim, its their primary strategy.

    Ya mean more dishes in the sink than in the cupboards?

    Ya mean more dirty cloths on the floor than in the draws and hamper?

    Ya mean the odor of moldy rotten fast food droppings in the car under the piles of trash?

    Ya mean a mountain of feminine hygiene products that resemble the Matterhorn in Switzerland?

    I think I know what ya mean...

    There is a LOT to say about this. Women make sure that anything men do in the house is wrong, even if men do things their way its never right.
    The reasoning is to make it look dificult, that only they know how to do it. They also love to put down men, so that men become more maleable and controlable. A bit like the CIA interrogation techniques...

    Re: Keeping house

    Makes me laugh how women complain that men see housework as a woman's job. Yet, by formalizing the complaints that men should help out, they have assigned themselves as housework director.

    Who made you the boss of the housework?

    You did, ladies.

    You are putting yourselves in charge of that department. The more you complain about the housework, the more you are showing ownership of the housework.

    Hard to see this, I know, when you are obsessed with changing someone else.

    Someday, maybe this housework complaint from women will go the way of that other tired cliche of lowering the toilet seat. It took 'em 40+ years but I think that stupid complaint has finally outlived its heyday.
    The two most important days in your life are the day you were born and the day you find out why. - Mark Twain

    Re: Keeping house

    I think maybe laziness and lack of incentive may have something to do with this.

    I’ve had a few periods where I have been unemployed and after a while things tend to get put on the long finger – washing clothes? Sure I can do that tomorrow, I’ve nothing much else to do anyway! Then it repeats. This is how unemployed housewives live their lives, and as time goes by they do less and less.

    But when I’m employed it’s a different matter. I know I don’t have the time to put things off and because I’m working I have greater motivation. I am unsure of the psychology of this but I know it to be true (for myself anyway). It’s like I’m used to doing stuff, so I keep on doing stuff. I get off work, maybe head to the local for a pint or two, then home for dinner. While I have dinner on I get most of the other stuff taken care of – cleaning etc., and after dinner the dishes get washed. All jobs done I can relax and enjoy the rest of the evening.

    At the weekends the flat gets a good going over. It takes about an hour, maybe an hour and a half, and the place is spotless.

    Housework? It’s a piece of piss when there’s no woman around gathering shit and leaving it everywhere.

    Years back a gal I was seeing would throw that shit out there that she was sooooo "exhausted"...

    Yeah, she has a job sitting on her ass for eight hours a day pushing paper, doing data entry in a computer, and talking on the phone. Real tough stuff, there sugartits.

    Meanwhile, I was out to the farm most every weekday evening and on weekends. I think I dodged a bullet.

    Re: Keeping house

    I've been living alone for years, it's an absolute doddle.
    I'd like to think I have a well presentable house also, not a shit tip.
    All DIY done by me, kitchen, bathroom, boiler, plumbing, flooring, electrical work, car repairs (just rebuilt an engine on one) and just completed a log store out the rear of the property.

    So woman's work and way beyond, and a full time job. Laundry and cleaning and cooking ain't that difficult at all, it's quite laughable really.

    Women like a man who's independent until they realise you're so independent you don't need them for anything and you can take care of everything yourself.
    "Whoever has trusted a woman has trusted deceivers." .... Hesiod

    If you don't design your own life plan, chances are you'll fall into someone else's plan. And guess what they have planned for you? Not much

    Women living in absolutely disgusting places. I have never understood what is hard about cleaning, with so much modern technology to help, it makes it a breeze and women act like its a second job.

    Or a first and only job.

    Yes I do. Sit about watching Dr. Phil or some such shit while sipping wine and thinking up ways to fuck up your hard working partner's life.

    Shame on you.

    Re: Keeping house

    My ex wife was an expert at avoiding housework.

    I was earning very good money and she decided that "we" didn't need her wage anymore and stopped teaching. The quality of the housework was going down and down until it was non existant and meals were done to her schedule rather than mine.

    I happened to pass comment one time and I was told that she was extremely busy during the day running her 2 Facebook groups and moderating 2 others. It got to the point where I was coming home after 12 to 13 hours and was having to clean the place and cook for myself as she had eaten a lunch with friends and the 2 teenage kids had fixed their own food. I guess that gave her plenty of time to chase after all the pussy she wanted.

    Now days it doesn't take much to keep the place clean as it's only tidy me there, I cook in batches so plenty of food with little work.

    I can understand that in the days before vacuum cleaners, washers and dryers and dishwashers it was hard work but now it seems to me that modern women complaining about house work is just something to bitch about and be the victim.

    Because western women have become so entitled and worthless that picking up after yourself has become this "intolerable task." The modern, western, parasite can't be bothered with such tripe. She's a princess because Disney said she was. She can also kick a 200lb man's ass because she has "sick martial arts skills with perfectly drawn fake-up".
    In the future there will be robots.

    Watching the degradation of western women is like watching an ecosystem dye from excessive pollution, we're to the point that the rivers are catching fire with acid rain killing the forests and slimming the lakes with florescent algae blooms, and visibility is less than a mile!

    Re: Keeping house

    Reminds me of my ex wife. i worked 50 hours plus a week. She didn’t work because we had twins. Then when they went to school, she had about 6 hours during the day that was free time. The reference above about watching Dr Phil and sipping wine while thinking up ways to f#$& up ,y life was her exactly. I did the majority of the cooking. I did the grocery shopping and I took the kids to soccer practice. I finally lost it when she’d do laundry for everyone in the house but me. I had to do my own while she was out drinking up with her girl friends at lunch time. It was amazing. Got out of that situation.

    You were hard at work everyday, while your ex was at home enjoying the easy life and she couldn't even do the bare minimum to make your life a little easier. Because, even the basic task is too hard for women.

    You summed up the situation very well. Hence, divorce. Best move I ever made.

    Was that the final straw or, did you have other signs at the time, that you had to get out of the relationship to save yourself?

    Re: Keeping house

    There were lots a reasons. This was one of many. As I tell people, you can kick a dog only so many times before it bites back. I was kicked enough times. Way too many times. In a much better place now. It’s been 5 years since I moved out. Divorce finalized 4 years ago. Learned a lot about myself and women. Life is good.

    It's only by the powers granted to women by the state that gives them such contempt, arrogance, and condescension toward men and society at large. Put them back on any footing they must provide for themselves, then love, kindness, and empathy will return to their hearts while hunger pains return to their stomachs. Unfortunately, for society, this will not happen without the utter destruction and collapse of that form of society.

    And who's actively working to destroy the same society that gave them every possible concession and privilege?

    When men listen to women, the man suffers, when society listens to women, the society suffers...
