Wow--surprised at a couple of negative comments here. For the record, the
phrase "modest is hottest" is in no way whatsoever about objectifying
women, but rather saying that their appeal should be in who they are rather than
how much skin they show. And to the poster who apparently thinks people have
everything figured out at 19 and need no further help, I'm going to flatly
disagree with you. I myself am nearly 30 years beyond that, and I wish that my
own parents had been trying their very best over all those years to both lead
the way and offer advice for what was ahead. Things would have been much better
for me if that had been the case; since I also love my daughter who is a
teenager, I most certainly will continue to help guide her when I think she can
benefit from it.
So his daughter is 19 and he's still telling her how to dress? Sir, you had
18 years to do that. Now let it go and let her figure it out.I'll be honest, DNews, I don't think this dad's behavior toward
an adult woman by mocking her shows respect and love. I have no doubt he loves
her and wants her to be loved and not objectified by others. I actually think
what he did is a poor example of how to handle this situation and instead
it's being celebrated and promoted. Too bad. While not as long
as the dad would prefer, I'd be shocked if her shorts were worth making a
public spectacle about.Just my two cents.
The MOST heartwarming part of this whole situation is to have our eyes opened to
the fact that MUCH of America DOES still care about modesty in public and
specifically in their teenage daughters who have become MORE objectified than
ever in the history of the world....(and now the targeted group is becoming the
female preteens!)Way to go Dad!!!
If her shorts were the same length as the cut-offs her dad wore, what's the
problem? He looked ridiculous in them, but that's a function of his age
and sex. A young woman can look perfectly nice in a pair of shorts that
long.Oh, and "modest is hottest" is ridiculous. You
don't want girls objectified for dressing in revealing clothing, but want
to replace it by their being objectified for dressing in non-revealing clothes?
Have anybody seen the pic of the guy in short-shorts? He is a pretty Hot Daddy,
with very sexy legs!!!!! :-)
How about showing that same thing to those guys who wear jeans that revel
undershorts on top?
Mackintoshes, not Mackintoshs.
I am happy for them, I really am. It got me thinking about how I do what I want
and not doing the things that I need to do because I've became lazy.
I'm trying to want to do the things I need to do. My motivation is my
heart. I have to exercises, motion makes motion. In order to do any thing you
have to do it. Doing things for others makes my heart feel good.
