Dad wearing shirt with feminist message goes viral
A photo of a father rocking a shirt with a feminist message on the back has gone viral. And CBS anchors think he's pretty awesome for wearing it, saying, "The shirt supports his 20-year-old daughter's views on feminism."
The shirt reads, "I don't make the rules, You don't make the rules. She makes the rules. Her body, her rules."
On Father's Day, Kristine Speare posted the photo of her dad on her Tumblr page. In less than a week, the photo got more than 207,000 likes.
Kristine spoke with NJ.com and said her father, Chuck, is "very supportive of me and the decisions I make for myself; he cares so much about me and my passion for feminism. He completely agrees with the shirt's message."
But not everyone is loving this shirt. A writer for PJ Media, a blog that reports on media issues, wrote, "By declaring that his daughter makes the rules and he is not responsible for her, he is signaling to every male predator out there that his daughter is available for victimization."
But it's not as if non-feminists don't have a shirt of their own.
A shirt listing the "Rules For Dating My Daughter" is sold online at The My Father Daughter Store. Rules include "Understand I don't like you," "You hurt her, I hurt you," and "Get a job."
They always say there's a time for everything, and apparently there's a T-shirt, too.
Some dads wear feminist shirts and some write crazy texts.
