Men: do you enjoy doing womanly tasks? (Laundry, cooking, cleaning, etc.) Women: do you enjoy doing manly tasks? (Mowing, building things, fixing things, working on cars, etc.)

I dislike housework altogether, but I'm a neat freak, so I'll do it if she doesn't.

I generally dislike cooking/cleaning alone, but when I'm at my boyfriends house I instantly want to cook a ton of food and make his place sparkle. I think most of the sex "roles" are more incentivized by an actual relationship than any other stimuli.

I enjoy cooking, but I don't think of it as a womanly task. Take a look at the top chefs in the world, they're predominantly male.

I've noticed this with many tasks. Cooking is a "woman's job", but when it's culinary art, men are more involved. As for building homes - it's a "man's job", but when the appearance of the home is art, women generally take over the design.

In college I was once told "you cook, you clean, you sew. You're gonna make a great wife for someone one day". (-male)

Though my from-scratch cookies are awesome.

I don't think of things like that as either "womanly" or "manly." I enjoy doing some of both groups.

Hell, I don't even enjoy most of the "womanly" tasks. Cooking is the exception.

I love building, painting, repairing. I'm quite handy. Sadly, not to fond of the "woman tasks".

I enjoy doing some of the cooking and I occasionally start the laundry.

According to your list. Yes. Cooking.
Although I don't agree with the belief that its a womanly thing.

I like mowing and putting furniture together, but driving a car is so much more fun than fixing it haha

Lol it is in my house. My husband would starve himself if I didn't cook. Or he would eat junk food!

I do my own laundry and I cook. Cleaning is not my strong suit.

Tasks are tasks these days. It all has to get done.

You are absolutely right. But, that wasn't the question. It was, do you enjoy doing them?

I like to cook. The other things, not so much.

Not in the least. She's the same way about male tasks so it works perfectly.

Way to keep the genders divided. I didn't realize my love of cooking made me womanly...

And traditionally white people had black people as slaves. What's your point?

No gender specific tasks in this home.

I don't even divide them. I just call them "tasks".

I enjoy mowing the lawn, working on the car, and building stuff. I love getting my hands dirty; that and the finished results are like a trophy for me.
