It was a fine thing if one was dumb and had no alternate prospect. Otherwise it’s a damn waste of a good brain (bad for everyone). The majority of their homeworking hours were taken up on things now supplanted by electronics – beating rugs or running errands, there are documentaries about the way it took up a whole day by hand, so we can never go back without a total grid down scenario.
Similarly, dumb men should be banned from most occupations. There’s no shame in manual labour.
I wonder, if it is as “easy” as some males say, why they don’t want to become house husbands?
If it is truly ‘doing nothing’, ‘woman’s work’ aka easy and they’re hamming it up? Where are the guys flocking to it, then? Aren’t men supposed to be the lazier sex? If you’re twice as capable, and could do it in half the time?
