Amenable (adjective) means “capable of being performed by men.”

In scientifically conducted surveys employing very large sample sizes, it has been found that men believe that the set of amenable activities is 78.34 percent larger than women thing it is.

However, there is at least one exception. When the survey was conducted during a football game (North American football in North America or European football, i.e. soccer, in Europe) or, in Canada, a hockey game, men estimated that the number of amenable activities was 97.86 percent smaller than they said it was when there wasn’t a game on. Women’s estimates of the size of the set of amenable activities didn’t change under those circumstances, however women became furious on learning that men’s estimates decreased. Go figure.
