So THAT Explains Why We Don’t Want Top Do The Dishes!

retro-faucetASKING MEN TO DO CHORES MAKES THEM AGGRESSIVE: Asking men to do jobs traditionally associated with women, like washing the dishes, could make them more aggressive. Researchers from the University of South Florida found that men react aggressively if they feel their masculinity is being threatened. After doing tasks traditionally associated with women, like cleaning or housework, men will deliberately behave in a more macho way to restore their self-esteem. The researchers asked one group of men to behave in a way seen to be more feminine by braiding hair, while another group was asked to braid rope – a similar, but more masculine occupation. Afterwards, when given a choice between either punching a punch bag or doing a puzzle, the hair-braiders overwhelmingly chose the more violent option. (Daily Mail)
