Or more specifically, should a man who doesn't have a biological relationship with a child change it's nappies?
The reason I ask is because I've ended up in quite a few conversations lately about this, particularly in the context of male ECE teachers and their work. Most people seem to think it's ok for a father, or grandfather, to change the nappies of their child/grandchild. But things get trickier for some when you take things wider than that.
For me it's very straight forward; there should be no gender differentiation about who can change nappies. If you are happy with a woman changing nappies then having a man change nappies should be no different.
And further, if you box men out of changing nappies then you intrinsically box women into changing nappies. Which is definitely Uncool.
So what do you think dear readers, are you hip to the jive of men doing the dirty work?
