This week’s Podcast Question of the Week is about, well, misandry:
Have You Hired, or Would You Hire a Male Babysitter?

Most people would kneejerk and say “sure, why not?” But, obviously this is a real issue. So much so that even Friends had an episode about discomfort with a male nanny (screenshot vandalized above).
Would you hire a male babysitter? Have you? Why or why not?
