Double Standard?

My friend has a set of twins. One boy and one girl. They are 4 and have both been diagnosed with different degrees of mental retardation, thus they aren't potty trained yet.

Both sides of the family freak out if my friend's dh changes his daughter's diaper because she's 4, but no one cares if my friend changes her son's diaper and expects her to do all the work with both of them?

Does that make any sense to you?

Nope, no sense. And it's dumb.

I think people really don't understand that dads are supposed to parent...and that means all the duties, but what you describe is common.  

Apparently with our current "rape culture" instead of elevating our expectations that men can control themselves, we have lessened men to being nothing more than their sexual urges and it gets projected everywhere.

No not at all. Unless daddy is a secret pervert or something this makes no sense.

So what do all the single dads of the world do???

It really sucks for all the good men to be lumped in with child molesters. I think that's why a lot of guys shy away from changing their daughter's diaper or bathing her or even potty training her. Someone sees a man doing all that and assumes he's some sicko.

Some people are so weird about dads changing their kids. Just because they are male does not mean they are going to molest children. My SIL freaked out when I let my DH change my daughter. I just told her to grow up. He helped make them, he can help raise them and that included changing diapers.
