Hi there all. I was asked yesterday why I put the men in parentheses when describing the work I do. I had written that I “help women (and men if they are so inclined).” My response was that women have traditionally been the cooks in the family and therefore are the ones who are feeling the conflicts and seeking me out when they are struggling. Yes, men have begun taking on the role of cooking for themselves and their families more and more, but it does not seem to be expected of them by society, and therefore they don’t expect it of themselves in as much of a deeply felt way in my experience. Thoughts?
