I live with my parents. My mum and I work 40+ hours a week and my dad is retired. My dad does nothing but sit at home all day reading books, and complains at being asked to help out with anything, including making my mum a cup of tea after she's been at work for 10 hours.

Am I being unfair in expecting him to contribute to the housework just a little bit? He literally does none and then moans when we don't have the time to make the place look totally spotless. My mum says that I'm being unrealistic because "he's a man" and apparently this is a legitimate excuse to not lift a finger around the house. What do you think?
