VIRAL PHOTO: This Feminist Father's T-Shirt Says It All!

Posted June 20th, 2014 @ 7:05am by Chilli Amar


A photo of a dad in a "Feminist Father" polo shirt that states the "rules" of dating his daughter has gone viral on Tumblr since being posted by the man's proud 20-year-old daughter on June 15th. Kristine Speare told Yahoo Shine about her dad, who's a New Jersey restaurant owner: "He's very supportive of me and the decisions I make for myself; he cares so much about me and my passion for feminism.

There were some critical postings of the shirt, however, with one person saying, "What a terrible way to parent. Kids need rules and boundaries set for them." Yahoo Shine notes that a columnist for the conservative website PJ Media slammed this shirt back in January after seeing an image of it on Facebook, calling it "pathetic and disturbing" and saying it's, quote, "signaling to every male predator out there that his daughter is available for victimization."
