Does this remind anyone of that Friend's episode where Ross and Rachel hire a male nanny (played by Freddie Prinze Jr)? Thats the first thing that came to my mind.

Wait, Friend's probably isn't cool on Fark, is it?

Mixing two words like that to create a fake compound - now, that's not good for anyone.

As a guy who used to work in childcare back when I was in college (I think I've held down every crap job out there), I find it interesting that the tide of male caretakers for children appears to be changing. The reason I say this, is because most people I know think it's unusual for a man to actually like kids. I always have, which is the reason my wife and I now have four of our own and why we're also talking about adopting a baby from Africa. Many people automatically assume that you have some sort of nefarious purpose. But, it's interesting that this sort of thing is becoming popular.

Example: I found a little girl lost in the mall and tried to help her. I had my four children with me, as well as my wife. When the lady showed up, she ran up and yelled at me "THAT'S MY CHILD! WHAT ARE YOU DOING WITH MY CHILD?!" I calmly explained that my wife and I had spotted the child and wanted to help. She looked at me like I was the devil and walked off in a huff.

Well, not all girly-men can be flight attendants, hair stylists, fashion designers, or interior decorators.

You would have to be completely stupid to do this job. It's only a matter of time before some kid would say "bad touch" and you're off to PMITA prison, do not pass GO, do not collect $200.

Sorry, but I'm not letting some sissy boy take care of my son. Well, it'd have to be somebody I knew VERY well, I actually have zero problem with homosexuals.

Obviously Britney needs a male nanny because cletus would be hitting on Mrs Doubtfire. Duh

You're not wrong, as GodBlessTexas illustrates. But then I'm some over reacting wacko as determined by the "mum banned by the pool people for changing kid" thread. :)

Guys don't do that anymore. That domain has been completely taken over by goodlooking ( and not so hot) female teachers.

I tried to hire a fairly hot 21 year old nanny with an ass-tatoo.
I was vetoed and ended up with a 55 year old Filipino.

I know what you are talking about. I have one and another on the way and was even a stay-at-home dad for a few years.

I like kids, but when I was in my 20s I noticed that it seemed like people women just wanted me to drink beer and fart. It was as if I was supposed to not like kids.

I think women feel threatened.

/very secure in masculinity
// still think I am better with kids than some women

Maybe the fact that you know she had an ass-tat had something to do with the decision. just maybe.

I get laughed at for being in nursing school and being male. I get called "Murse" from time to time.
Of course, I got laughed at for being a high school teacher and being male.
As far as I can tell, caring and helping people makes your sexuality questionable.

Caring: The new ghey.

Edz: "Nowadays we can do what the women can do, pregnancy is next". Hehehe!


Well hell! When that happens will someone please be sure to notify me?? I want to be on that list that will allow my hubby to go through 9 months of morning sickness, papsmears, engorged breasts, etc... and all in the summer heat... only to end on a climax of extreme pain and a tiny voice crying.

Although still a bit controversial, I'd love to have a "Manny" for my kids. My hubby on the other hand agrees with gopher321

The bets babysitter I ever had was a guy. It was awesome having someone that would play outside and was good at Nintendo. The best part was he was awesome building stuff out of Legos.

I did some babysitting on occasion. Apparently lots of kids do like having a guy.

/I only took the easy high-paying jobs.

I read in a magazine that Mark Burnett, the Survivor producer, was a manny after serving as a British paratrooper.

I'm not sure quite what to make of that.
 
2006-07-23 11:41:55 AM
i dunno, i would think this would be a great way to get some older tail (from the lonely overworked mom). I have a female friend who is an au-pair, and from her stories her jobs go really well until the husband inevitably starts hitting on her, which is when she moves on to the next family.

Richard Simmons once said:

I might as well be gay. And not just because I love rhinestones and Barbara Streisand. But because I'm a sensitive person who is supportive of gay people the same way I'm sensitive to grossly obese people and ugly people.

I think being suspicious of men because they are into "caring" professions is shiate, to be honest. I would have zero problem with a man taking care of any future children I have-- even a *gasp* gay man. Maybe this is because I know so many gay men and exactly none of them are pedophiles, but all the pedophiles caught in my school district (among other places here in my city) are married men and women.

My neighbors have a live-in manny. He's 24 year old Spaniard ~ he's beautiful. Our neighbors have two boys ages 6 and 10 so the he plays soccer with them, makes dinner, helps them with the homework, until the folks get home. It seems like a great set up for a family with boys.

That said, I don't think I'd ever hire a male nanny because of pedophilia concerns. So we'll stick with our boring, middle aged, Jehovah's Witness and female nanny, with whom I'd trust with my life (and my husband) (and my kid).
