I do believe that women have passed the men in the therapy profession now. I could be wrong, but I was sure I read that somewhere.

I'm not sure about consumers. I happen to associate with men who are very comfortable consulting therapists, at least short term, and there's no stigma. In this day and age, it almost seems to be the automatic thought to go to a therapist.

I think there is a theory, and of course this is generalized and doesn't apply to individuals, that women are more likely to seek answers in relationship with others, so might be more drawn to therapy. Indeed, although I know many men IRL who have no problem consulting a therapist, most have a decidedly more pragmatic approach to it than I do. I think my therapist might even specialize in men to a degree. CBT for the most part. At least half of his clients I've caught sight of are men, maybe more than half.
