No, you're right. Women can wear pants and still be women, but men can't wear dresses and still be men. (Excepting kilts.) Women can earn money and still be women, but men can't raise children and still be men.

Minerva can be a tough, intelligent, often powerful witch and still be a strong character; but when Hagrid (arguably the toughest, manliest man physically) shows his motherly side, he's comic relief.
