Dear Kevin Hart, I Bathed My Kid

Kevin Hart needs to learn that it’s not the 1950s anymore.
Watch his monologue from SNL on December 16, 2017.

Ha ha. Very funny. But what’s that bit about “I gotta give it up for the women”? “You take care of the bathing” or whatever the hell it is?

Dude. I hate that I have to keep saying this but MEN DO THAT TOO. And I don’t just mean in general. In my case, I was — and am still — the primary caregiver.

What I would have preferred he say is “I gotta give it up for my wife.” Would that have been less funny? I don’t think so.

Just so there’s no confusion, I am not hyper offended. I’m not even offended. I would just prefer that the idea that only women can take care of kids, as in not work and take care of kids, would stop. It’s not going to. But I’d like it if it did.
