关于 guānyú regarding
最近貌似“女主外男主内”的情形越来越普遍,我的朋友圈儿里好多对夫妻都是这种模式。丈夫在家洗衣做饭带娃,太太在外叱咤风云。

Recently it seems like situations in which wives go out to work and husbands stay at home are getting more and more common. In my circle of friends many couples follow this model. The husband stays at home and does the laundry, makes dinner and looks after the children, while the wife makes her mark in the working world.
诶,这让我想到一年前看到的,一篇关于美国演员对于男生公厕没有换尿布台抱怨的报导,很有趣,但也反映出想要积极参与养育孩子的奶爸所面临的诸多障碍之一,真该改进了。

Huh, this made me think of something I saw a year ago. It was an article about an American actor complaining that there are no baby-changing facilities in male public toilets. It was very interesting, but it also reflects one of the obstacles facing these stay-at-home dads when taking proactive moves to participate in raising their children. There should really be some progress.
话是没错,可是我这个人吧,就是有那么点守旧的观念,一个大老爷们在家呆着算怎么回事儿啊,还是觉得女性把家整理得井井有条,把孩子养得白白胖胖比较可以接受。

You're not wrong, but I'm a little bit more reactionary. How can a dude just sit at home and zone out? It's still more acceptable to me that a woman cleans up the house spick and span and raises the children to be round and chubby.
这也是人之常情,绝大部分人都会有这样先入为主的成见,觉得家庭主妇是比较容易被接受的,而接受不了家庭“煮夫”,但其实无论父母谁在家照顾孩子,对孩子的早期发展都有所帮助。

That's a very common feeling. The majority of people have this bias fueled by their initial impression. They feel it's easier to accept the idea of a housewife, and can't accept househusbands. However, whether it's the father or the mother looking after the child in the home, both can be helpful for the child's early development.
