I hope I didn't inadvertently offend anyone. I thought it is a ridiculous enough statement that the intended humor wouldn't be missed.

Thank you for clarifying. I don't know you well enough to know that was intended as humour. In that case, no offence taken.

There is currently an ugly backlash to feminism, think gamergate, and I'm a little more sensitive right now. I've been called a man hater because I don't think that women should be groped on public transportation. Yes, I know that it's not all men. I even know it's not the majority of men.

Whew! Addie jumped to the conclusion that I am a female, and I thought that an Archie Bunker response would be amusing. I'm well aware that us males are in a minority here, and this is a very friendly forum. Again, apologies to anyone I might have offended. I really don't want to be the forum jerk.

I was surprised that Addie thought you were female. I had guessed male. I try to check a person's profile before writing he or she.

Why not? How else do you expect to get men to ride on public transportation?

In some homes (like mine), if the woman wants to eat, the woman has to cook. Himself can muddle around in the kitchen just fine, and didn't lose any weight when I would be gone for weeks restoring my parents' out-of-state home before putting it up for sale, but now he restricts his cooking to "the grill".

Rest assured, too, that you are not an endangered species here as a male cook. Many of the members are both men and accomplished home chefs. Now could all you guys please gang up on Himself and convince him of the joys of joining the club?

In many households, especially where both work, meal preparation is viewed as a chore. The reason why my wife's friends, mostly working teachers, laugh and agree with my seemingly sexist comment is that they would welcome their husbands assuming more household duties. I also think that in most households duties are divided, rather than shared. We divide duties mostly along traditional lines, except that I also do food and windows. I don't know any couple where both cook, except where the guys do the grilling.
