Women are weak I swear (and before you go hatin', I'm a female). This study is just embarrasing, it's like we can't take anything.
Is there any way anymore where men and women are actually ALIKE? So tired of these studies that always have men and women different in EVERY freakin aspect in the Universe.
How about us single dads? My kids were 1 and 6 when their mom left. My responsibilities included travel to and from day care, cooking, cleaning, shopping, laundry, lawn and house care, dressing the kids, buying clothes, emotional needs, etc. Plus the demands of a high pressure job in IT. Plus as they grew older sports, scouts, school meetings plus everything a growing child needs. The single moms at my office were given a lot of leeway when dealing with child issues. I was told I needed to make the choice between my children and my job. Try telling a woman that. Single parents have a lot of stress male or female. There is a lot of support for women that are single parents - just try and find programs for single men. Stress and depressions - been there, done that. Also have no family to provide support or help.
Here, here! I totally agree! I wish there were more support for men like there is for women; it seems women are given a lot of "hand outs" but when men are in that position, they are told to "suck it up", it's ass-backwards and unfair. I salute you for your commitment to your family and hope things get better for you.
Too many woman feel its their job to keep a home together, the kids taken care of, and most any other chore that has to be done too. When I was younger, everything was up to me, not my husband. He worked 40 hours a week, and that was it for decades. I took care of everything else even mowing the grass, and cleaning out the garage, washing the cars ect. This was mostly my fault, I allowed him to get by with it for decades, then I got tired.Yes, woman do feel stress more then men do, we are not as strong physically, but have more to do.
It's both their jobs to keep the home together -- if women are gonna whine about it, then don't have kids.
In way too many areas commuting is not a straight door to door shot. It involves several highways/streets and using more than two buses or subway trains. Include in this that home may be in one suburb and the job may be 3 suburbs away. Ergo the commuter is going through three zones with their own culture (big on senior commuters in one zone to big on freakin' noisy school-agers in another, etc.). None of this isin any way relaxing.
Childbirth would be another area.
I have to agree with the author of this article 100%..I had an interview the other day for a management position and during the entire interview all I kept thinking about was whether I could make it home on time to start dinner, who'll walk the dog, what time can I work out and most importantly, what if my child needs me during the day while I'm at work... IMO these are just a few things that stress out most women who have to commute to work..And where I live out in the sticks (actually Buda,TX) there are no jobs "close by"; all of the jobs in my field require a fairly long commute...
OH my! Please use THAN when comparing items....not THEN
OH my! Don't you have anything better to do THAN to correct people's grammar!
No, and I get paid for it, too!
No, you don't have anything better to do THAN be the grammar police? How sad:(
You know why men die first? Because we want to! Men and women are just hard wired differently. Nothing wrong with that. As a matter of fact it is a good thing and in a good marriage/relationship we complement each other. I hope everyone takes the above joke in the light it is intended.
well if we werent meant to be fitting partners wed all be gay LOL
It is no secret that women have it 10 times harder in general at life than men. I see it in every couple / relationship that I know of. Guys if you want to sit there and complain about our bitchin', then try helping out a little more for a change. That might suffice. The ironic thing is that most women would be eternally greatful for a little extra help, so get off your lazy ass_s and help. There are some women who get everything and still complain, but honestly that is very small percentage.
Not to nitpick, but I wish women would quit asking for men to "help out". That implies that it's still the woman's responsibility, instead of these jobs being a household responsibility. It's not "helping out", it's doing the work that's needed to create a successful household. Everyone in that household needs to be responsible for that, not just the woman.
