A highly unscientific survey

This is inspired by a discussion in a friends locked post. Please tick as many boxes as seem relevant, but make sure to answer only the question applicable to your gender.

If you don't define yourself as either "male" or "female", that's wonderful and liberated of you but there is no space for you in my poll. Answer in a comment if you like, and preferably don't hate me. The reason for this is that LJ polls have no direct way to link answers in two different categories, and for this particular poll I'm interested in the people who are still part of the binary gendered majority.

Poll #846234 Post feminism?

Please only answer this question if you are male. In your household, who does most of the housework?

Me. I live alone.
13(48.1%)
Me. I care about it more.
1(3.7%)
Me. I'm better at it.
0(0.0%)
Me, for sound practical reasons.
0(0.0%)
Me, because that's my gender role.
0(0.0%)
We share everything exactly 50:50.
1(3.7%)
My partner.
2(7.4%)
My male partner.
0(0.0%)
Someone else in the household who is not my partner (eg platonic housemate, parents, children).

Someone we pay (eg cleaner, help, au pair etc).
1(3.7%)
Nobody ever does any housework here.
