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.You will respect them, and if you don't, I promise they won't need my help putting you back in your place. However, Welch’s intentions are in the right place and far more feminist than most other “rules for dating my daughter” that have come before it.. But the kind of posturing by fathers of daughters I was specifically responding to had nothing to do with that 'protective instinct' and everything to do with asserting their dominance over women and reinforcing a belief that women need men to take care of them.”Like Welch said, there is nothing inherently wrong with parents being protective of their children.Like, ugh, we get it: Your daughter isn’t just anyone’s property; she’s ~*your*~ property.However, this dad’s “rules for dating my daughter” recently went viral for reasons that are on the right track. Warren Welch, who is raising five daughters, posted a set of his own rules on Facebook and Instagram that have since been shared over 17,000 times.
I don't think I can take much credit for that, but you'll never know how proud I am to be your dad. A post shared by Jeff Welch (@j.warren.welch) on ‘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.
They are a welcome departure from the shotgun-slinging threats shrouded in toxic masculinity that are typical of these kinds of fatherly lists.
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.
They have never had religion forced upon them though. ‘That’s just who they are right now, and it might always be that way.
I’m usually a hard pass on any dad-written “rules for dating my daughter” that make the rounds on the internet.
