well said. This is exactly my experience too as a father. So out of a sample of 3, it seems 66% of people asked found that the work was shared equally.
Are you including me as one of the three? Because if so, you've got 100% for your wee forum sample. Still totally doesn't mesh with the research I've seen though.

But the average nuclear family mother is no longer busy chopping wood and thus (potentially) has more time at her disposal . But getting enough sleep has always been a problem for the mothers of young babies, so I am thankful for the invention of autoatic washing machines, dryers, freezers etc.
No, but the average mother in a nuclear family still has to do the cooking, shopping, cleaning, washing, ironing, entertaining visitors, gardening all round the baby's schedule, and when she feels a bit "off" due to lack of sleep has no grandmother, sister, brother, aunt or uncle etc. to take the baby off her hands for a few hours or (absolute luxury) a weekend.

Does your "average family" not include a father to do this?

If not there already, then we'll soon be reaching that stage

It is no surprise that the breast is considered a sexual organ, which in actual fact it is not.
Ummm. Actually, I would argue that it is both. But, you know, I am a man... so my opinion my ahm, er... be biased...

No way. As a girlie, I'd agree. I feel sorry for the nipples of anyone who thinks breasts aren't sexual. I think their purpose is both for milk and sexual pleasure. If not the latter, then it wouldn't feel so *censored* when they are *censored* and *censored* and *censored*.

The problem is that for many societies, they are only seen as sexual in nature.
