Debate Question: “Is it Sexist to Want a Female Babysitter?”

1

January 9, 2015 by JImbo

I’ve heard this quite a few time from parents. It’s just assumed that girls make better babysitters than boys. Not just better, but “less creepy.”

Isn’t that a bit sexist?

On both sides?

And why would an old woman be considered a good choice for a babysitter, but an old man be extremely creepy?

Not a lot of old guys as nannies out there…
