The photo got more than 40,000 shares in just a few days. What is wrong with a dad who cares enough about his daughter to protect her? When you consider that many dads aren’t there at all, this dad is actually showing up and putting in the effort to care about his daughter.
I have no doubt this dad loves his daughter very, very much, so much that he took the time to print a kitschy shirt to prove how special she is to him.
I was at the beach a few days ago with my family, and my dad pointed out a shirt that he thought was funny. It’s not “just a joke” when it reinforces stereotypes about how girls need to be kept safe and virgin through no choice of their own.
Not only did it have that phrase on it, it had a shotgun and words in small print that said, “shoot the first one and they won’t come back.” I didn’t think it was funny. Why would I think a joke about killing my boyfriend is funny? It’s not “just a joke” when there’s a part of the joker that really means what they’re saying.

On the front of the young girl’s shirt is a picture of her dad, ripped and flexing.Researchers in Iceland said last year that the child of a father aged 40 had two-and-a-half times as much DNA damage as a 20-year-old, increasing their child’s risk of conditions such as autism and schizophrenia.Every few months, we see a viral Facebook post like this: A picture of an overprotective dad with rules or warnings for dating his daughter. The photo depicts a very physically fit dad and a very disgruntled teen daughter.I’ve dated a number of guys over the years, and over time I’ve learned how to figure out what I want from a guy. Because, really, we’re not talking about daughters dating girls here. It’s promoting the idea that girls need to be kept safe and secluded. And he said, because girls are the ones who can get pregnant.I’m probably not all the way there yet, but I’m a lot closer to understanding myself and my relationships than I used to be. That comes with it’s own slew of problems, but fathers toting shotguns isn’t one of them. And I said, but a boy can get a girl pregnant, so why don’t you stop boys from dating? (For reference, my dad only has daughters, so the question was hypothetical to begin with.) Because no where did I see a shirt that said “dads against sons dating” or “moms against sons dating.” For daughters, fathers worry about them dating.
