Sexism lives

Is it possible for a news organization to cover the fact that the number of stay at home dads has tripled over the last ten years without a "Mr. Mom" headline?

Sexism is about ensuring that everyone stays in their defined roles. Reenforcing the defined roles of one gender serves to reenforce the roles of the other. If it is still demeaningly adorable for men to act as the primary nurturing parent, who do you think gets stuck with the job?
