Sexist Study Claims Women Are Fat Today Because We Do Less Housework

Taken from here.

A group of so-called experts think they have finally figured out the real reason behind our obesity problem: Women just don’t do enough housework anymore. Duh, why didn’t we think of that?
According to a new British survey of 8,000 people, 60 years ago the average women’s waistline measured 28 inches. Today, we come in at 34 inches. That’s a full six inches more than our earlier generation. And the reason for that? The demise of the stereotypical 1950s housewife, of course!
Apparently, women didn’t know how slim and trim they were back then due to their apron-wearing, pie-baking, vacuum-pushing lifestyle. Researchers say the average female used to burn 1,000 calories a day keeping a clean house (with dinner on the table when her man arrived home, I’m sure).
Lead researcher, Dr. Ros Altmann said modern-day appliances have significantly reduced the time and effort women spend on housework these days:
When you think of the time that women had to spend cleaning and cooking, life is so much easier now – although obviously that has contributed to the bigger waistlines.
Of course, the average women also consumed 1,818 calories a day back then, compared to our 2,178 now, so that couldn’t possibly have anything to do with it.
Excuse us while we break out the bonbons, catch up on our soaps and let the new robotic floor cleaner tidy up.
