Case in point: The Parent Rap. It’s a well produced, moderately funny song about the joys of parenthood - “we used to be cool”, “mom, mom, she’s da bomb”, “dad, dad, he’s the man”.
What does mom do? she stays home and cleans and clips coupons. And dad? he puts on a suit and goes out to work, to “support the clan.” Because “money doesn’t grow on trees.”
Of course, there are all sorts of families, and every combination of working full time / part time / staying at home is perfectly fine.
But isn’t it weird that the stereotypical family is still one in which daddy brings home the bacon and mommy cooks and serves it?
It’s 2012, but we might as well be living in the fifties. Enough already. It’s time for a change
