Well, I don't think his assumption is odious- just a product of the times in which he lived, and I find myself in agreement with an earlier commenter that it does help him, quite poetically, get to the heart of the point he is trying to make. That being said, in my house I and my husband share the responsibility - though, to be honest, I am the one that concerns myself with the state of everyone's hair, which may be a function of roles we have been socialized to assume, or may be a function of our personalities...not something I care about-- we all get along fine and everyone pitches in generally.

We have most definitely achieved a great deal with our social safety net, but more needs to be done-- a living wage would be a good start. The implementation of that would be a revolution in itself.
