Reddit user throwaway_192i932, 21, who is expecting a baby boy with her 28-year-old husband took to the site to reveal the quandary she’s in. Her husband is thrilled they’re having a baby but says he’ll never change his son’s nappy because he thinks touching a baby boy’s genital area is ‘g*y’.
She wrote on the social media site that her husband had told her that nappy changing was ‘her
responsibility’ and that it would be ‘g*y’ for him to do it. The mother wrote:
‘I didn’t have the best mom and I want the best for my son. I’m an only child so I don’t have much experience on child care so I want to be over-prepared. I heard that raising a baby is one of the most stressful times in your life so I’m learning all I can right now because I’m a slow learner according to my husband.’
However, I told my husband that when the baby comes he needs to use baby wipes on the groin and butt as a precaution since it can be pretty bad.He stopped me and said that I would be changing all of the diapers, that he doesn’t want to touch anything because it’s gay and that it’s my responsibility.
‘We got into an argument because I really want his help in raising our son. I’m planning on breast-feeding him so I won’t be getting a lot of sleep and so if he helps me change the baby it would help me a lot.I don’t understand why my husband thinks like that. Our baby is our son, we need to take care of him. My husband stormed off so what can I say to change his mind?’
In a plea for help on Reddit she wrote:
‘I’ve been married to my husband for three years. But we’ve been dating for two years before that. He’s honestly the best person I’ve met.’
