Remember the man-scolding Gillette commercial from a while back? Well, it wasn’t all bad. There were some wonderful scenes from real life in there that one might think would warm anybody’s heart.
Except for the terrible people trying to ruin daddy-daughter dances. What joyless scolds. What ideologically useless weenies. This trend has been going on for some time now because progressivism is cancer. The latest odes to awful come from New Hampshire and New York.
Thankfully, folks in New Hampshire are proving to have a little “Live Free or Die” spring remaining in their step; they told the mother who came to the dance with her boyfriend, son, and daughter to take a hike.
Which brings me right back to that Gillette commercial, which featured a dad and his little girl standing in front of the mirror, with the girl repeating “I am strong” upon her father’s encouragement. Because – Truth Bomb alert! – that is exactly what a daddy-daughter dance seeks to accomplish as well! A chance for a father’s love to imbue in his daughter her singular worth as an individual. Her uniqueness. Her beauty. And, yes, her incredible strength.
Or, you can just let the dumb flow like wine, like this New Hampshire mom, who said, "In this day and age, it's not like your gender should define what type of parent you really are."
