Keith Cunningham-Parmeter’s analysis of Obergefell v. Hodges underscores what remains to be done for full LGBT rights. In this commentary on his article, I explore taking his analysis of employment discrimination law, and the potential of stereotype analysis to create workplace equality, back to family law, and work/family intersections. I particularly focus on what this might mean for men. As a group, men are constrained by masculinities, or male stereotypes, regarding care both at home and at work. Therefore, undermining work stereotypes might impact men’s relationship to caregiving both at work and at home.
