Really, I hope to have taught my daughter enough about men, romance, sex, etc by this point that the idea of me standing between her and the gate to the dating world as an armed guard is an insult to her. These decisions will be hers to make when the time comes, not mine.
I’m going to teach my daughters to recognize micro-aggressions. I’ll leave it up to them how they respond, or if they respond. If I had to guess, I would say CFd1 is about 10 times more likely to call someone out than CFd2… but I want them to be able to ascertain sexist attitudes and beliefs in a person. That is just basic awareness, and will help them to form quality relationships.
Expecting common decency from children is one thing. We should expect that from every human being and children should expect it from us.
If someone is unable to force another against their will, the next tactic is to emotionally or mentally manipulate their way into consent.
When I say that I’m a feminist daddy, that carries a little different meaning than just being a feminist. For one thing I’m a man, which automatically puts people on edge, feminist or not. Male feminists are only recently finding their identity and embracing the role.
