Much of the time when men take on “female” roles, there is an excuse that they are doing so in a manly way.   Cooking is an example of this.

Men were able to get into nursing again after there were lots of drafted men from the military who were nurses.    The military also got men to wear wrist watches which were women’s jewelry before WWI.
