Fatherhood makes men more sexist: do you agree?
Men get more sexist once they've had a baby. That what scientists say, after finding evidence that when men become fathers for the first time, they tend to adopt more traditional views about gender roles in the home.
After surveying nearly 2000 people before and after having their first child, researcher in Germany and Australia, found that fatherhood brings about a 'sexist shift' in many men, meaning they're more likely than before their baby was born to think women should fulfil the brunt of housework and care duties.
Does this ring true for you?
When you had your first baby, did your partner expect you to do more of the housework? Did you previously share the chores more equally?
And did your baby's father just assume it was mostly your job to look after the baby?
