A man caused quite the stir on Twitter earlier this week when he asked women (and only women) to rate their ironing skills.
A user with the handle @Unkle_K faced a backlash after he posed the question on the social media platform, asking: "Women rate your ironing skills out of 10 let's go."
Naturally, thousands of women piped up to clap back at the OP, with the responses ranging from livid to utterly hilarious.
Women rate your ironing skills out of 10 let's go- #ENDSARS (@Unkle_K) October 17, 2020
Some users were angry that this question was aimed at women.
"This is quite presumptuous," one person responded, while another sarcastically added: "Men, rate your house building ability out of 10 let's go."
"Men, rate your misogyny out of 10 let's goooo," added another.
One woman made a sincere yet sarky attempt to actually rate her skills with an iron.
"Three - have to take supplements," she responded.
While some other girls in the chat offered some genuinely useful advice to avoid busting out the ironing board.
"If you shake out the creases as much as you can while it's wet and hang it up and fold properly you don't need to iron most clothes," one woman pointed out. "And that is feminist praxis."
"Don't iron anymore," another wrote. "Just toss a damp cloth in the dryer with wrinkled item. Set dryer for 10-15 mins on high heat. Finish getting dressed."
Soon, the responses became increasingly chaotic.
"What's an iron?" one Twitter user asked. "My irony skills are 10 though."
"Ironing is a social construct and unnecessary," a second user curtly said.
"No-one will know until I try," a third chipped in. "Which will be never,"
It wasn't just the ladies who gave @Unkle_K a tough time, with several men pointing out that ironing should not be considered a women-only job.
"I'm a dude," said one man. "I don't trust anyone else to iron my clothes, nor would I expect them to. I like my shirts a certain way, so I learned."
"I've been ironing my own clothes since I as 14," said another. "Ironing is not a gendered skill."
You said it.
