If a man can do it, then a woman can, too.

It is believed that men and women are already considered equal in our society. Before, women are just left in the house taking good care of the kids while the men work outside. But it has been changed throughout the time. Women have been given important roles. There are even cases when men are the one who are left in the house and the women serve as the provider in the family. But not everyone can accept the modern norms. Some find it humiliating in the part of the men if it is the women who are working for the family. Have you done something that was only meant for men or for women only before? Were you criticized or admired?

I think today the concept has not changed so much yet. Namely it is fine for man and woman go to work. It is also OK that a man go to work and the woman is a housewife. However, people will look down upon the man if he is a stay home man. They feel sorry for the wife since she has to go out to work and support the family.

I agree with you. Some still minds it but for those who have open mind it is something acceptable already. In here, we use the term "houseband" to refer to those men who are left at home doing household chores and taking care of the kids. It is not an easy task to be left at home and do everything for the family. I salute those men who can do it for their family.
