The only time I ever mock any bloke is when they most certainly and 100% deserve it. Take my stepdad - does his own washing. Great stuff! Bad news? He'll toss the wet clothes onto any surface possible, filling it to capacity with complete disregard to the fact that if they are put out crinkly, they will dry crinkly. We've told him MANY times, but he just can't remember to put them out properly. Bless him. And even HE laughs at himself for that. Otherwise - why mock the bloke? At least they are making an effort!
