Yesterday, we heard from real dads about teaching their daughters that they are smart and beautiful. Today, real dads tell us how they teach their daughters that girls can do anything boys can do.
For advice, I turned to Tony, the father of three girls under the age of nine; Adam, the father of two daughters under the age of four; Jim, the father of a nine-year-old girl; Joe (AKA Frisky commenter _JSW_), the father of two girls under the age of twelve; and Jesse, the father of three girls under eight. Over the next several days, I’ll be sharing with you some of their fab (and adorable) advice.

Last night, domestic abuser and homophobe Chris Brown got in a brawl with someone who was possibly in Drake’s entourage, supposedly over Rihanna, and he lost a bloody piece of his chin in the melee.
This morning, The New York Post reported xoJane writer Cat Marnell is leaving the blog to smoke angel dust and “write a book.” Like, she actually said that to a reporter. This is the new plan because she doesn’t want to stop using drugs, as she has been asked to do by her employer.
Then, this South African couple told the Daily Mail about how they keep an adult pet Bengal tiger inside their home as a pet and he sometimes chews up their sofas. This couple also owns several tasty-looking pet dogs.

This is the Palin Conundrum: ignore them and hope they go away, or pay attention to the insipid things they do in order to mock them, thus contributing to their tick-bite hold on the public psyche.
The good news is that in Bristol Palin’s upcoming Lifetime reality show “Life’s A Tripp,” girlfriend may just encourage you to stop paying attention to her out of sheer apathy. The attempts at plot drama — paparazzi are taking photos! some man confronts Bristol in a bar about her mom! — are the kinds of “drama” that would have ended up on the “Real Housewives” cutting room floor. The best part is when Bristol tells her sister “I wouldn’t wish this on anyone,” which is usually the feeling of someone who does a reality show. So grab yourself a double espresso and check out the series trailer. At least Tripp is cute? See an extended clip from the show, featuring mom Sarah, after the jump! [MyLifetime] Keep reading »
