Sometimes a good dose of humour is needed to get us through another busy day of parenting and these memes from the Man Who Has it All have the Babyology office in stitches.
No one knows who is behind the social media accounts of Man Who Has it All, but whoever it is has a great sense of humour. By a simple trick of swapping the genders in common advice given to working mums and delivering it to working dads instead, this witty account has revealed the ridiculousness of gender stereotypes while having us in fits of giggles.
Each post cheekily picks apart the common phrases we hear about women who want to become a parent while keeping their career. There are gags about beauty standards, housework, entertaining others, and finding “me time” among it all.
But when it comes to gender stereotypes, the door swings both ways and Man Who Has it All has both camps covered. While many of their side-splitting memes talk about society’s unrealistic standards for women, they also speak to our low expectations of fathers.
We forget sometimes that talking about dads as the “extra kid” or over-praising for completing simple tasks is just as destructive as saying mums cannot keep their career. But the Man Who Has it All keeps us in the know and wraps it all up in a good belly laugh. I just can’t get enough.
