Feminism and Cleaning

Yesterday Lileks pointed out this blog post about how women having higher domestic cleaning standards than men is an example of patriarchy and male privilege.

I would rather die alone than spend one hour married to someone capable of seeing patriarchy in the dusting arrangements.

I don't mean that as some sort of punitive, "I shall withhold my manly charms from the feminine world" thing. I don't have that kind of ego. I'm just saying, if a woman is so hypersensitive to perceived gender-based slights that my failure to clean the bathtub up to her standards can start World War 3, how likely is she to understand my need for nasty, ass-bangin' hookers?
