Over the past few days, Nigerians took to various social media platforms to discuss gender roles, especially in the home.

Reiterating the statement of the latter, a young man identified as @jayythedope has taken to the popular micro-blogging platform, Twitter, to tell his parent’s story.
The young man said that when his mum was pregnant with a child in her 40s, his dad had to step in to help with house chores because the pregnancy was not easy for his mother. According to him, his dad cooked, cleaned and did all the house chores including washing his mother’s clothes.
