Diaper Duty - Real Men Do It

I was getting a pedicure this weekend (yes, I do indulge) and while reading the stack of trashy tabloids, I came across a quote that I hope to god isn't true. When asked about the new baby he has on the way, Donald Trump, Jr. allegedly responded, "Trumps don't do diapers."

I threw up a bit in my mouth.

Parenting, at least, good parenting is about taking care of all of your child's needs - not just giving him money to buy his first Porsche at age 18. It seems to me that of all the things you could possibly do as a parent, changing diapers (while yes, sometimes gross) exemplifies how important you are in your baby's life. You are taking care of an essential body function - and without you - a baby couldn't really thrive.

Real men change diapers. Real men don't freak out when your breast milk spills on them. Real men want to engage in all aspects of parenting and not just the warm and fuzzy ones. I suppose my rant goes beyond the alleged Trump quote. I am angry at the women who allow their partners (male or female) to parent without actually partaking in quintessential parenting moments. This isn't 1950 and while women are still the ones to do it all, it is nice to know that we don't always have to.
