  • My husband takes it out, but I can do it if I want to. It's just that it is such a yucky job that if he is willing to do it, I say go for it. :)

  • I take the trash out. But rodents and dead critters are my hubby's domain.

  • Hmm, I coerce my man into doing it using my feminine wiles. Does that wreck my feminist image?

  • Idk, but I take the trash out, and the recycling, and I fix the toilet, fix all the electronic/computer problems, do the yard work, clean the garage (including the mouse traps), and just about everything else. He really has no patience for anything and is never home so I just do it to get it all done.

  • What does a feminist do if she is single and lives by herself? Does she take out the trash and mow the lawn, or does she hire someone to do all the 'manly' chores for her? LOL!

  • I'm a SAHM, housewife, devoted spouse, and a feminist. A feminist and her SO (who is probably a feminist too, meaning he believes in the equality of all people regardless of sex) would probably figure out who wants to do what, and what makes the most sense for THAT family, without worrying what traditional roles are. Dh and I are very much a team; I gather and pretreat the laundry, he washes and folds it, and I put it away. I make the grocery list and plan the menu, and find coupons or whatever, and he does the shopping, and then I put the groceries away. I gather the trash, he takes it out. If one of us is actually better at something, that one usually does it. If it is more convenient for one to do it than the other, that person does it. I am simply home a lot more than he is, so it is more sensible for me to do more housework. It's my free choice, and we do what works for both of us. That's feminism.
