    Taboo* and you shouldn't have used "Not" as an alternative to "Yes", strictly speaking.

    Anyway, whatever, makes no different to me if a nanny is male or not. Only carries the same risks as using a female.

    Would you let your young daughter with a male sitter? At home, for several hours? The writer was afraid about him cleaning her or seeing her naked.

    It might help to write that in your first post, otherwise people won't have a clue what you're talking about.

    On-topic, if he wants a female nanny, he wants a female nanny. It's very much a private job so he can't face repercussions for refusing to hire him.

    It may even just be that the male in question is bitter and claims that this is the reason.

    I can't make any deductions without seeing the article first though.
