In a discussion on the politics of housework in one of my classes today, my professor was naming off a list of house chores that always seem to be assigned to women. And when she got to bedmaking, she barked, quite bluntly:
"Well, I would argue that no one really has to make the bed, anyway. What a waste of time for something you just get back into and mess up again. Pointless!"
And I knew right then and there that we were going to get along just fine.
