Complete And Utter B.S. “Study” Claims Women “Secretly” Love Housework
3:30 pm, June 7th | by Amy Tennery
Roughly one in three women “secretly” adores doing house chores, according to a recent “study” completed by “chartered psychologist Dr. Jane McCartney.” Yep. That’s the big “secret” that women are keeping. We’re just mad about dusting. In fact, if a woman tells you she hates housework, don’t listen to her! She’s making that up. She secretly loves it — she just didn’t want to tell you because she’s so embarrassed about how much she loves freaking cleaning.
McCartney explained her “findings” to the Sunday Express:
“There are a growing number of common misconceptions about cleaning, however women can and do get a great deal of satisfaction from it. There is a therapeutic routine or sense of control in creating a home environment.”
Question: How minimal do your problems need to be that laundry time constitutes as “therapy?” I want those problems.
The “study” goes on to explain that women like some chores more than other chores (diversity!), noting that women are less fond of cleaning the oven and the toilet.
Tasks that required too much time or effort or were labelled “disgusting” were most likely to be left to their other half.
Women. Can’t live with them, can’t get them to scrub away fecal bacteria.
I don’t want to startle you, so I’ll try to break this next part as delicately as I can: This “study” is total, utter crap. Never mind the fact that the study only surveyed 2,000 women and (inexplicably) no men. The whole thing was sponsored by a rather motivated party.
The “chartered psychologist,” as it turns out, was “chartered” by a company called Zoflora, which, despite it’s name, is not a Zorro-themed flower shop. It’s a cleaning product company. A cleaning product company commissioned a study to promote the hidden truth about how much women love cleaning.
Ladies, this is our Watergate.
