Here are some real studies, and not some opinion pieces:

Married women unite! Husbands do less housework - USATODAY.com

Women Do More Housework, Men Less Upon Marriage

Female Scientists Do More Housework Than Men Do - Labor & Work-Life Issues - The Chronicle of Higher Education
Of course I read it, why would I post an article that I didnt read? I read those sophomoric articles that youve posted there already before. Those are the same outdated studies that people have been using to propagate the myth that I was addressing. The article I posted addressed both house work and employment work.

And of course it was partially done in Britain (it was actually conducted throughout Europe, but whatever). AND?...Whats your point? Are British not men and women? Is the fact that they are European supposed to render any data null and void because it didnt happen in our little American bubble? They have a more progressive society than we do, and they STILL found that men outwork women in some areas.
