Dads and their daughters dating
Here are the rules by which any potential suitors must abide, should they choose to date Welch’s daughters:“You'll have to ask them what their rules are.
I'm not raising my little girls to be the kind of women who need their daddy to act like a creepy, possessive badass in order for them to be treated with respect. I’ll admit I’m not a huge fan of the accompanying Facebook caption, which reads, “I ain't raisin' no princesses.” The notion that femininity and strength must exists separately or that stereotypically feminine things are “bad” arguably isn’t the end-all solution for sexism.
Instead of just standing there, why don't you do something useful, like changing the oil in my car?
Like, ugh, we get it: Your daughter isn’t just anyone’s property; she’s ~*your*~ property.
Still, I want to be fair and open minded about this issue, so I propose this compromise: You may come to the door with your underwear showing and your pants ten sizes to big, and I will not object.
However, in order to ensure that your clothes do no, infact come off during the course of you date with my daughter, I will take my electric nail gun and fasten your trousers securely in place to your waist.
While that’s encouraging, it also reinforces the notion that women and girls are solely defined by their relationship to men.
It plays into the idea that women and girls should be protected, not because they’re human people who deserve to feel safe when existing in the world, but because they can’t do it themselves.
