I’m not going to threaten my daughter’s boyfriend

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.

Sexist Attitudes and Behaviors my Daughters will Probably Call You Out for

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.
