Brilliant parody blog gender-flips advice given to working mothers

rexfeatures_822105a.jpg

A parody blog and Twitter account has set about flipping the inane advice regularly dished out to women juggling motherhood, a career, a social life and more, by putting men on the receiving end instead.

Though the author has decided to remain anonymous, A Man Who Has It All - the ‘lifestyle blog for super busy dads’ - has already gathered a large following, thanks to tongue-in-cheek blog posts such as ‘Career or fatherhood?’ and ‘3 reasons why dad is so busy’.

Taking direct aim at the barrage of pressures heaped upon women, the blog’s About page reads: “I’m a busy dad with three children, an awesome wife and a hectic full-time job. I offer intelligent lifestyle advice for the thinking man, struggling to juggle kids, housework and career.”

In one of very few interviews, the British creator of A Man Who Has It All tells Huffington Post that they wanted to highlight the “crap” messages which are constantly pushed at women by lifestyle magazines and adverts.

Delivering the interview in character, the blog’s creator says: “Don't get me wrong, I'm absolutely fine with dads who work. It boosts their self-esteem and gives them an identity beyond just ‘dad’.”

From beauty routines and housework expectations to the way mothers are often treated in the workplace, the A Man Who Has It All Twitter account shares expertly flipped one-liners, which have captured the attention of over 26,000 followers so far.

See a few examples of the account’s brilliant posts below…
