  1. “College-educated parents and white parents were significantly more likely than other parents to say work-family balance is difficult.”

    “The survey also found that white parents were more than 10 percentage points more likely to express stress than nonwhite parents.”

    “..women still do the majority of the child care and housework… Just don’t tell fathers that. They are much more likely than mothers to say they share responsibilities equally.”

    And the award for saddest, weakest, complain-i-est, most delusional bitches of all time goes to… educated white American men. Congrats, dudes! We did it!

    • I would argue with the delusional part. I do think we do a shit ton more child & housecare than any fathers of any other generation ever and our corporate culture is way fucked and stressy. But I agree that we are great at complaining about it.
