Via Feministing and Ananova: Croatian lumberjack Stjepan Lizacic, 56, claims he started 'enjoying housework and knitting' after he was given a female kidney ... He says his life changed from enjoying heavy drinking sessions with pals to preferring housework after the operation."

As Lizacic told his local paper: "I have developed a strange passion for female jobs like ironing, sewing, washing dishes, sorting clothes in wardrobes and even knitting."

"He pointed out that before the kidney transplant he would not have been seen dead doing the housework, and expected his wife to do it all, but now found it both relaxing and fulfilling."

Insert "Let's give 'em ALL one of our kidneys!" joke here. Har, har.

Homophobia coda: "If the new feminine side to him is confined to housework I am very happy," said the man's wife, Ludmila. "I only hope he doesn't start looking at other men."
