@MrNeutron – I’m sorry, are you trying to assert that masculinity is so fragile it can’t withstand the act of moving a dish from one spot to another? Or that caring for your own child is “mixing genders together”? What about single fathers, who by necessity must do all the household chores and work outside the home? Are they some strange chimera of the 4 archetypes you mention, and therefore lacking in some way? I get the sense that you don’t have a working understanding of gender or psychology. Perhaps you are an alien who stumbled upon this book you cite and thought it gave a full description of human gender expression. I think you’d be better served by just not being a jerk and helping your spouse whenever it makes sense. Either that or moving on to a more pragmatic philosophy of human relationships.
