I think we all know what the stigma here is: To be seen driving a minivan is to admit to a kind of shameful domesticity, an existence of postsexual nullity and a state of parental slavery, ever orbiting from school, to grocery store, to ballet lessons, to games, like some suburban Flying Dutchman.
However, as the father of twin 3-year-olds, I have never suffered from minivan embarrassment. After all, nothing says “stud” quite like a minivan.

Yes, indeed, the lure of a minivan is primal. WSJ.com
