Honestly, I’m tired of the whole thing. We’re at a point where people were immediately being glad Kobe died despite the fact that there were a number of other people who also died in the accident. News of his daughter’s death as well got some to quiet down but it was still a bunch of memes about passing

Perhaps I am being naive but since Kobe Bryant has passed various people have brought up his sexual assault case as a defining issue which needs to be mentioned and discussed but I am trying to understand for what purpose? I am not trying to be a troll or contrarian but rather really trying to ask what is the

I’m kind of glad Shannon is one of the few people “suffering” through this.  She seems like a miserable person anyways.

“Girl dads are very different from “fathers” because they’re a specific type of cis man—and they are always men, because #girldad is not nuanced enough to include gender-nonconforming parents or children.” Read more

Spurned” is right. Way to take all the positives and turn them into negatives. You know there are countries where girls are still thrown in trash cans, right? And here, this hashtag is encouraging the guys who are happy to have daughters to be proud of that, and that’s a problem for you. Ok. Men (finally) learning to Read more

As a father, who is a girl dad, I would argue that to be a dad of a girl you need far more tools in your toolbox to raise her than one would as a dad of a boy. Read more

Giant assumptions made by the author makes me wanna believe that the author is sexist. This one is top of the crop - “A girl dad is a man who discovers the significance and abilities of women only after having a daughter.

I’ve never heard of a “girldad” before right now, but I doubt it implies all that this article says. I’m a father of a former girl (now a woman), and it didn’t make me a feminist. I was a feminist long before I had a kid. I never wished my daughter was a son. I never wanted her to be into sports. I think this Read more

I’m just not really sure if this particular critique of men who are expressing vulnerable emotions in this moment is the best way to combat toxic masculinity overall. Partially when this hashtag centers/has been used by many Black men, for whom the conversation about positive representations of fatherhood is Read more

It’s something that really resonates with MEN. So it needs to be destroyed.

Imagine reading an article criticizing an act of male pride and your takeaway being that everyone hates women...

It’s just a hashtag, there’s no award show or trophy you get just for sharing a story about how you love your daughter in the face of a tragedy where a man who loved his daughters died with one of them. i think people are just like...expressing their emotions.

Is it really necessary to pick something like that apart so much? Clearly it’s something that really resonates with people. There really is a different sort of relationship between fathers/daughters, and mothers/sons, and I’m sorry if people aren’t able to experience that for whatever reason, but it doesn’t mean you Read more

There was always a question posed to Kobe after the birth of every one of his daughters and it was always along the lines of “ are you going to keep trying for a boy?” He made it a point to encourage the 2 older ones to excel in their chosen sports....and I just don’t see the need to split hairs over a hashtag meant Read more

What? There seems to be a whole lot of projecting, or something, here. It’s pretty clear that “girl dad” is just a dad who enjoys being a father to girls, rather than, like, pushing to keep having kids until he gets a boy.
