I guess I've never considered those things because I'm cool with them or understand that they happen.

If my kids like the arts, I'll support them. If they wanna cry, I'm here for them. If they wanna be stay at home dads, shit yeah. In fact, I was the bread winner for a while, and that worked out alright. I actually prefer to work!

I dunno. I guess I'll encounter all this as a mom to two boys. Mixed drinks though? People need hobbies instead of criticizing everyone for their preferences.

Oh, yeah, completely agreed. Its just the double standard of "Women suffer" without allowing for the fact that men do.

Basically agreeing with Metekillot on the "stop framing it as a joke or disregarding it" bandwagon. Men are allowed to have their own problems that, in no way, reduce a woman's problems.

I'm allowed to be depressed, hate my body, feel confused about my job and my priorities, and all that. I'm allowed to have my lifemate make more money than I do, I can be a stay at home dad, I can have no mechanical understanding of cars or motorcycles. However, if I do any of that, I'm 'less of a man' for making that choice.

If all that is true that is pretty terrifying.

Wish I'd seen this discussion sooner.  Sociology and "social problems" make up my major and I find this stuff fascinating.
