(Good, Lord, I can’t tell you how long I’ve been waiting to use that title.) I am a stay-at-home dad, which means I’m the one who does all the volunteering at my little dude’s various schools. All of which means I get called a lady far, far too often.
I mean, sure, that’s not necessarily a bad thing. It means I look so very, very pretty. And that’s always a good thing.
It’s just that, when I think about it, I get a bit miffed that the people in charge always assume I’m a woman. I mean, sure, I look darn good in a dress (I mean really, really good), but it’s not something I wear all that often.
Most times, I let it go, but, now, it’s time for me to scream it out loud: I AM A MAN! Seriously.
Not everyone who volunteers to help out at a school is a woman. I feel like a disenfranchised minority and, as a white male, that’s pretty much a bit of a miracle. Especially considering I’m not a member of the NRA. (Seriously, don’t ask.)
So, if you’re working with a bunch of stay-at-home parents, don’t assume we’re always women. I mean, I might be ready to slip on my skirt and start stalking around the city and you really don’t want to see that.
