Would you use a male babysitter?

 Would you? I use Care.com to find babysitters and have had great luck finding long-term babysitters with great references and clean background checks. However, they have all been female. A 20yr old ECE college student replied to my current job and they sound great...except that this person is male. I don't know why I feel weird about having a guy babysit but I do, no matter how qualified. What about you?

There are mannies out there. I wouldn't have a problem. My husband used to babysit for his aunts when he was younger.

I wouldnt have an issue with it if it was someone I trusted. My favorite babysitter when I was a kid was a guy....and I still talk to him to this day. He was awesome.

I would. Women babysitters are just as likely to hurt your child as a male is.

My kids' main babysitter is male. He's my best friend. I trust him with my life. So its only appropriate that he's who I'd entrust with my kids' lives.
