Anyone noticed this trend?
Posted 5/12/16
I noticed on social media platform, women like to write, "Wife, mother" in the description box beside their social media username.

I rarely see men write, "Husband, father" though. Is it my imagination, or have others noticed this, too?

It seems unnecessary. I mean, it's nice they take pride in being a wife and mother, but what else?

I do have a few followers that have "husband, father" on their descriptions. I think they do that for keeping up appearances though. They could be preachers or politicians or something.

I think they call it labeling some people feel the need to put a label on everything but i do agree with 1stladyent it does all seem rather unnecessary.

Lol yes!

That's something even I wouldn't do

Probably for the same reasons as guys who dont wear their wedding rings when they go out clubbing, b/c they don't want people to know they're in a relationship.

This is pretty common its also common to think this says something about a person's character.
I don't see it that way, I think it looks like they haven't accomplished much outside of their personal lives.

My educated guess is because of traditional values. Women used to be stay-at-home wives while the men were the bread winners. Depending on your country, this traditional value may no longer be followed. So why then do women describe themselves as "wife" or "mother"? I again have some educated guesses to this:

1) Wives and mothers are perceived in society as "more caring" or "friendlier", hence why wanting to label yourself. Women (and people in general) hate to be labeled, but seem to willingly label themselves when favorable.

2) "Wife" or "mother" provides an identity for that person. Because without some role, they may see themselves as "less useful" to society and/or others.

Please let me know what you think.

I like your points.

I'm more wondering why men don't do it, is it because writing, "Husband, father" is effeminate and not seen as a manly thing to do?

Thank you I think men may not label themselves as "husband" or "father" as much for one of two guesses I have:

1) Women are more open with their emotions than men. Just like women labeling themselves as "mothers" possibly to seem more caring, males may be more hesitant to reveal their soft side

2) It's hard to argue that many men care deeply about sex. By putting a "father" or "husband" label on, you're basically automatically declining women who may be interested. Some men are loyal, and some aren't.
