Is your wife more handy than you around the house? Do you do everything or does she help? I'm ashamed to admit she does all of the jobs like assembling furniture, plumbing, etc while I just handle anything related to the car.

What I find a bit weird is how often it ends up with men doing the handy work and women doing the cooking/cleaning. With all the woke foke nonsense about you would think it would be different but I have yet to find a woman who will change a wall socket or a man who could bake a meringue.
>>
>>2382730
You are looking in the wrong places or they‘re all taken.
My wife can change a wall socket and I can bake. Though we normally don‘t do it, due to preferences. She leaves the electrical installation for me and is using angle grinder, chisel and hammer to slit the walls and I keep away from baking and foraging and stick to beef wellington. Similar at metal stuff. Her preferred tools are the plasma cutter and angle grinder and mine stick and TIG.

Technically, men are better in the kitchen if they are getting paid. All of Occidental gastronomy is men.
>>
>>2382730
The number of men who can't do that sort of stuff is also abysmally high. It's just that many people are detached entirely from how the systems they interact with daily work, they've abstracted them away. On the other hand, there are many resources for learning how to do things, so if someone decides to gitgud at stuff and is not retarded, they can figure out the basics pretty quick from the Internet.

Women who have a knack for doing things are more attractive than their feckless sisters with equivalent looks. The only greater appeal is racial self-awareness with a properly fascist political devotion: fascism does not mean what it is popularly thought to mean.

Back when I had a wife, she was pretty useless with anything technical or maintenance related. As in, she could barely hang a picture herself and I took care of pretty much everything. I used to try to teach her basic shit like how to change a tire for a spare in case she needed it but she was adamant about not learning it. I couldn't figure out why she chose to be ignorant - she wasn't dumb by any stretch of the imagination and even had a degree in molecular biology.

I have myself a chuckle now when I catch wind from my kids that something has gone wrong with her house or car and she's had to hire someone to fix it because the guy she's with now is equally useless for that stuff. Of course I hammer it into my kids to know how stuff works and I try to show them as much as I can so they don't end up like that.

Your racial enemy hasn't left you in peace for 70,000 years. The reason you are on a board like this, pretending you are at peace is precisely due to the fact that you are under attack. This predicament of altruistic delusion extends deep into the technical, craft and knowledge base of the Occidental investiture. Technical proficiency and constructive production outcomes are integrated biologically within that history on a very long continuum of friend enemy distinction. When you plead as you have, the impression of a man unworthy of his tools and their history is left; or that of a jew mitigating true concerns by invoking the collective of the other under affected and false self-representation.

Learn to cook.

>>2383220
cooking isn’t that hard, it’s a skill you hone over time. it’s taking the time to learn the recipes, then the intricacies of whatever it is you’re cooking, and then adjusting it based on your personal experience. It also doesn’t help that modern women mostly learn their recipes through Tiktok and Facebook so most modern meals are mediocre at best while requiring a lot of input effort. modern women will try something complicated, realize they fucked it up and it tastes bad, and then never make it again

take spaghetti for example. overall pretty easy to make yourself, takes about 20-30 minutes. But if you’ve never fried beef before with onions in a pan it can be daunting and it’ll probably take you 2-3 tries to get it right the first time. then you learn that garlic cooks faster than onion, so you throw the garlic in later when the beef is brown and the onions are nearly translucent. Then you modify the recipe by adding oregano and rosemary to the sauce because it tastes better
>>

> inb4 have sex incel, touch grass, etc

my wife, her sister, their cousins, and my sister do this shit all the time. sometimes what they make turns out good, often whatever they end up making just isn’t worth the effort relative to the end result

Anons... my wife has gotten into homesteading because of Covid. In the last few months she's built a chicken coop, bunch of garden plots, and has been reading our county ordinance to see what milk producing animal we're allowed to own. She even showed me a picture of a "kill cone" which I guess you use to bleed out chickens. I don't know if the farming life is for me bros. What's it like?

Torx is good for screws that have enough meat on the head, but when it's too small for that, it's awful. Tiny screw, locktite, torx, and it quickly get chewed up so bad you've got to stop it out.

Why are you ashamed your wife isn't a useless peace of shit like most women? You fix the car and probably bring home the bills. Puttin' that bitch to work is based, you sound like a fag desu.

my mother is actually one of these women, she taught me quite a lot about DIY and residential construction growing up. she just decided in her 30's that she was tired of not knowing how stuff worked and how to fix it, so she just started figuring it out one thing at a time. now she flips houses as a hobby and has a little rental empire going on. she inspired me to get into the skilled trades (I'm an electrician). her mother was the same way but with gardening, she had a full-blown subsistence farm going on in her backyard for decades
