DM – We have long been told that our unhealthy diet is why we are all too fat. But now, when it comes to women at least, researchers have a rather more controversial explanation for rising obesity – they are not doing enough housework. Women are piling on the pounds because they have cut down on the amount they are cooking and cleaning, a study has shown. They are burning up to 360 calories less a day than their parents did because they are so sedentary around the house. Women have also used the hours gained from time saving technology like washing machines to spend twice as much of their lives sitting watching TV than they did in the 1960s. The findings are likely to outrage working mothers for whom there is still a gender imbalance when it comes to housework.  The study was carried out in the US by Edward Archer, a research fellow with the Arnold School of Public Health at the University of South Carolina. Similar studies have also shown the same result. He studied thousands of ‘time-use diaries’ provided by American women every year beginning in 1965.

 

You know, here at Barstool we say a lot of things that might be considered sexist by some people. Things like women belong in the kitchen and bedroom and housework has and always will be a chick’s job. We say these things because first of all, they’re true. But second of all, we just want you ladies to be as healthy and slim as possible. Every girl wants to be slender, right? Fat bitches aren’t real people. Well why do you think guys have been telling you to make them a sandwich and do their laundry all these years? It was for you. We did it for your own benefit. It was keeping you slim and healthy so you’d feel good about yourself. Blowjob + egg sandwich + dishes + sweeping = the best exercise going these days. And that’s coming from science. Yes, the science. A very respected and credible organization.

So next time you think it’s sexist or disrespectful that your man makes you do all the cooking and cleaning while he sits on the couch and drinks beer with his hand in his pants, just remember: we’re only doing it to help you out.
