Divide and conquer is a favorite strategy of Satan.  One area Satan has attacked humanity is the difference between the sexes.  There is no doubt we live in a fallen world and things are not the way they should be:

To the woman he said,

“I will make your pains in childbearing very severe;
    with painful labor you will give birth to children.
Your desire will be for your husband,
    and he will rule over you.”

To Adam he said, “Because you listened to your wife and ate fruit from the tree about which I commanded you, ‘You must not eat from it,’

“Cursed is the ground because of you;
    through painful toil you will eat food from it
    all the days of your life.
It will produce thorns and thistles for you,
    and you will eat the plants of the field.
By the sweat of your brow
    you will eat your food
until you return to the ground,
    since from it you were taken;
for dust you are
    and to dust you will return.”  Genesis 3:16-19

But modern technology has alleviated some of the curse.  Technology makes childbirth less painful and work less drudging.  And yet we complain.  Even one of the richest women on the planet (Melinda Gates) complained:

“For those who think it can’t be done, Gates offers an example from her personal life. Though Bill and the couples’ children would always help with after-dinner cleanup, she nevertheless was always the last person left in the kitchen, “doing those last few little things.”

Finally, she issued an edict: No one leaves the kitchen until mom does.”  From the Atlantic Monthly

There’s nothing wrong with everyone contributing fairly, but it is the anger that many women show that is interesting.  A quick search under ‘chores’ will pull up thousands of pages showing how men are lazy slobs not doing their fair share.  Women always get the moral high ground on this one.  Really?  Or is this a campaign to malign men?  How is it that a woman worth billions, who could hire a small army to do every single chore for her, is angry?  With modern technology, chores are a nothing burger!  (Excepting washing cloth diapers!) This author has had care of three children for a week multiple times while mom is gone on business.  Chores never take me more than an hour a day.  When is the last time you heard of men complaining about mowing the lawn?  Or that their wives “aren’t helping me”?  No.  Men for the most part accept their lot in life and do what they need.
