So it appears, my newly moved in Neighbours here in Elbonia finally have enough grass to mow.

However, the guy being quite a lazy person, has decided to send his wife out mowing the lawn.

Have you ever seen a lady mow the lawn, something which I traditionally thought was done by the men when living as a married couple.

No, can't remember ever seeing that.

I have seen questions with question marks, though... but not in this thread.  Wink

That's terrible.  Sad Go round there and give the lazy sod a piece of your mind.

The only lawn a woman should mow is located about 8 to 10 inches south of her belly button.

And I say that because mowing the lawn is a man's job. Having his missus mow the lawn is like asking her to hold the door open for him. It just isn't right.

Isn't it a sexist comment? Isn't the woman capable of mowing the lawn ?  Wink

Is gender equality all about breaking down the barriers to various jobs? If a man can help in the kitchen, shouldn't the woman help in mowing the lawn? stirthepot

I've done the lawn for years. It's a good little workout, a great way to catch some rays and you get the added bonus of a tidy front lawn.....

My mother always mowed the lawn on Saturday mornings when I was growing up. She would put on her bikini and use an old fashioned push mower (no engine). In this way, she could get some sunshine and exercise at the same time.

The 4 boys were tasked with cleaning the house on Saturday mornings. 1 scrubbed the kitchen floor, 1 cleaned the bathrooms, 1 vacuumed the carpet, and the youngest dusted.

All the time, sheesh!! It isn't hard, my wife used to do it all the time. She liked getting out in the sun. She was good at trimming the bushes to. She likes all kinds of yard work. Our son cuts the grass now, along with other chores. He has to earn his allowance somehow....


Quoting IFEMaster (Reply 5):

Sure it is.... just like vacuuming, doing the dishes and laundry is women's work.  Yeah sure Hell, I'll do the laundry any day of the week. I cook and clean the house too. Marriage is a partnership, especially when both husband and wife work. We both are the bread-winners, so divvying up the chores around the house only makes sense.

Past age 35 or 40 many women are in better physical condition than their husbands, and in such a couple it might be safer for the wife to handle the task.

I see women out mowing lawns all the time. One lady I know loves to mow her lawn because she says it is like a break for her. An escape from her busy schedule with her tape playing Walkman and riding mower.

You can't compare vacuuming and cleaning dishes and clothes to mowing the lawn. Unless my wife volunteers for the job, I won't let her mow the lawn. Why? Because the back breaking work in my house is my job. I happily vacuum, wash dishes, do the laundry, and they are shared tasks, but heavy yard work...respect for my wife stops me from letting her do that.

It's called chivalry. Familiar with that concept?

Why is chivalry a one way concept, that is courtesy towards women? It should be a two way street. A man is expected to pick up heavy tasks because it is chivalrous, but wasn't the underlying assumption there that the women will struggle to do it and so a man should offer to do it himself? Smile

shouldn't that be a medieval concept now that everyone believes in equality? Why should a man open a door for a woman? Or offer to do heavy tasks? If that person, man or woman is not able to do it due to some physical limitation, they will ask for help.

If a task helps a woman, it is chivalrous, if it is against them, it is chauvinistic?  Wink
