A man doing chores isn’t “whipped.” He’s doing part of the housework. All genders can clean.

    The words “helping out” are also problematic, because they imply that the default is women doing housework; we wouldn’t say, of an image of a woman vacuuming, that she is “helping out”.

      hmm. You are very right. I didn’t think about that. I didn’t mean that when I wrote it, I would have said anyone was helping out, but the language is problematic.
