As a conservative estimate, men lose an extra 156 days worth of free time compared to women over 18 years of child care

According to Pew, men spend an extra 4 hours per week supporting their families than women.

Over 18 years, this adds up to 3,744 hours, or 156 days.

Note that as children get older, they take less time to take care of, and the pew study appears to look at younger children. Which means the gap might actually be larger.

Without children in the picture, there is a deficit of 10 hours per week, which adds up to 22 days per year of free time lost to men.

Note that women still do more chores than men (at least in terms of time) but overall it's actually men who are getting a worse deal because they still work longer hours. And yes, men do in fact do more chores when their wives / girlfriends work. In particular, if the wife works part time, there is only a 3 hour gap. And if she works full time, it is only a 1 hour gap.

Still sucks overall if you're a man. And what's worse is there's very little recognition about this. Instead what people talk about is all the chores women do ("unpaid labor"), like men ought to be doing more even though they are already the ones who have less free time (and probably less energy) by comparison.

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
