    marveloustransformer asked: How is a dad wanting to shoot potential male prospects with a shotgun sexist? That's a father he wants to protect his daughter men know how other men act it's not about being a princess it's about wanting your daughter to pick the right guy. A father knows his daughter is gonna mess up & if a boy breaks her heart he's going to be there for her unless he's a deadbeat dad who's an ass not everything is sexist or feminist but I do hate patriarchal attitudes but not this

    candidlycara:

    Are you kidding me? “A father knows his daughter is gonna mess up?”

    NO HE DOES NOT. THERE ARE PLENTY OF WOMEN WHO DON’T NECESSARILY “MESS UP” IN REGARDS TO THE MEN THEY CHOOSE TO DATE. AND MANY WOMEN WHO DO WHO WOULD NOT WANT ANYONE INTERFERING WITH THE MISTAKES AND LIFE LESSONS THEY’VE OBTAINED, REGARDLESS OF BLOODLINE.

    Sometimes, often, the “Daddy knows best” notion is WRONG because parents, like all humans, are prone to their own flaws, prejudices, biases, and incorrect perceptions.

    Also, threatening violence to a MINOR is really fucked up? And if the person in question isn’t a minor, like, you’re threatening to kill the adult decisions of your daughter?

    It IS sexist because the whole dad-with-the-shotgun thing is so ubiquitous to society that we DON’T EVEN HAVE TO EXPLAIN IT TO KNOW WHAT IT MEANS. There’s no “Mom with the carving knife” trope.

    If all dad’s spent more time teaching their sons to treat women like PEOPLE they wouldn’t have to spend so much time and money in threatening to kill other people’s sons.

    Also: Men know how other men act?

    REALLY?

    Then why do women still not have equal pay? Why do 1/4 women experience sexual assault? Why do you continue to support athletes, actors, teams, musicians who beat and rape women? Why do women still have to fight for reproductive rights? Why do trans women experience violence even more disproportionately than any one else? Why do women not obtain leadership positions easily? Why do women still get murdered simply for trying to obtain an education?

    You don’t care about your daughter’s well being if you think the biggest threat to her life is some snot nosed kid. What you care about IS controlling her sex life, about her being your perfect virginal princess. It’s a primal reflex, its repulsive, and virtually useless to women and society as a whole.

    If you REALLY care about your daughter’s well being you’d realize the patriarchy is the biggest threat to her well being. Worry about HER not only the sexual aspect of her life.

    If all this INJUSTICE is going on while “Men know how men act” then they certainly are doing virtually nothing to fight it and are complaint in inequality. You care about your daughters? Don’t shoot her boyfriend. FIGHT. WITH THE SAME FERVOR YOU CLAIM TO HAVE THAT WOULD BRING YOU TO SHOOT SOMEONE, FIGHT FOR HER EQUALITY. FIGHT FOR HER EVERY LAST RIGHT. FOR HER PROMOTIONS. FIGHT FOR HER RIGHT TO LOVE WHOEVER SHE WANTS. FIGHT FOR HER EDUCATION. FIGHT FOR HER VOTING RIGHTS. ELECT WOMEN INTO OFFICE. REMOVE MEN FROM OFFICE WHO WANT TO LEGISLATE HER BODY. FIGHT. WITH EVERY OUNCE OF ENERGY IN YOUR BODY.

    What should we tell our daughters? To wear longer skirts, avoid going out late and move in groups? Never to accept drinks from a stranger, and wear shoes you can run in? Or should we work to create a world where our daughters are as safe and respected as our sons; a world where they’re not seen as prey, nor living with a one-in-five chance of becoming the victim of a sexual offence?

    I’d tell my daughter to ignore the message that her looks are all she is, or that men value her for her breast size and sexiness. I’d tell her to define herself by her own parameters and nobody else’s — not to be a tomboy or a “girly girl”, but whoever she chooses to be. I’d tell my daughter that there’s nothing right or wrong about any career path she might choose, from nursing to engineering to bringing up a family. I’d teach her about generations of brave, inspirational, ground-breaking women whose names she wouldn’t find in her history books. I’d tell her not to let her dreams be dented by old stereotypes about women “having it all”, but to look for a partner, if she should choose to have one, who would shoulder their fair share of the domestic and caring burden.

    I’d tell her it’s not weird or wrong if she loves somebody of the same gender, or identifies with a different gender than the one she was born with — what’s strange and unnatural is a society that still struggles to accept this after having centuries to get used to the idea.

    Perhaps most important of all, though, are the things I’ll never tell my daughter: “That’s not for girls”, “Take it as a compliment”, “Don’t rock the boat”, “That’ll go straight to your hips”. I won’t tell her that “beauty is on the inside”, but question a world that tells her she must be beautiful in the first place, when beauty pales altogether in comparison to passion, humour, wit and wisdom. I’ll never tell her that she should “think yourself lucky, things were much worse in my day”, because the point is, she shouldn’t be facing inequality at all. I won’t tell her to get used to it because it’s just the way things are, to stop making a fuss, to sidestep her sleazy boss’s advances rather than jeopardise her career, or to walk home with her keys between her knuckles. And finally, I’ll tell her this: if you can keep your head when all about you suggest that men are the default setting… you’ll be a woman, my daughter.
