Manly men are on the brink of extinction, say Britain’s women.

Manly men are on the brink of extinction, say Britain’s women.

Just over a third (35%) of women believe men possess the skill to fix things such as faulty cars or slow computers, a new survey found.

Almost three out of four (73%) of women felt mending a car should definitely be taken care of by the man of the house.

But women say men are now likely to have only basic skills such as grass-cutting, putting up pictures or washing dishes, the Daily Express reported.

And men who took part in the poll admitted being useless at certain tasks.

More than half (51%) admitted lack of knowledge about upgrading a computer hard drive, while a quarter said changing the oil on their car was a big puzzle.

Computer upgrade specialists Crucial.com commissioned the poll of over 2,000 people.
