Dear daddy i will be called a whore

Please watch: As a father of a boy and a girl this video broke my heart and made me cry. The reasons for my tears are numerous:
1) Did I treat girls this way as a young and stupid boy?
2) Was I one of the boys that said things to them that objectified them?
3) Did I allow other boys to speak to girls this way and not say anything about it?
4) Am i teaching my son to be a different kind of man; one that will not treat woman in this manner and one that will stand up for what is right?
5) Am i teaching my daughter to stand up for her herself, to not victimize herself if something is said or done and to not blame herself if some stupid boy does something they shouldn’t?
6) Am i the kind of father my children will talk to and let me know if someone hurts them?

Young women face many obstacles today.  Articles like this are important – if nothing more than to increase awareness.

Thanks for posting this!

Agreed. Really makes you stop and think about the words we use and the words we allow others to use around us. I cringe thinking about this in regards to my daughter

#4 On your list of questions is the most frightening.  It’s OUR jobs as parents to prevent this sort of misogyny and poor morals.

Agreed. This is where it starts. Teaching our boys to respect woman without compromise
