My List Of TV & Movie DILFs Leaves Nothing To Be Desired

Like every other red-blooded American, there is nothing I love more than a hot DILF. And like every other red-blooded American, there is nothing I love more than a Hollywood celebrity, because who really needs normal, boring friends when you could watch significantly more attractive people on a box in your living room anytime you…

Father Of The Year Gets Small Child’s Likeness Tattooed On His Face

It is taking all my effort to rise above and laud this dad for being a committed father, instead of judging him for going with only a subpar tattoo artist for his totally normal and not at all strange full-face tattoo of his child.
Perhaps one day I will love something my body produced half…

“DILFs Of Disneyland” Delivers Pictures Of Hot Dads Straight To Your Instagram Feed

If I were to actually wish upon a star as Disney so commonly pressures us to do, one of my wishes would definitely be regular access to a plethora of hot dads — not to approach, per se, just to admire from afar. Luckily, dreams occasionally do come true, and mine has arrived in the…

Feminist Dads Pretend To Breastfeed For An Awesome New Campaign

Photographer and father of two, Hector Cruz, believes that dads should know just as much about latching, pumping, mastitis and nipple cream as new mothers do. That’s why he founded Project Breastfeeding, an organization whose mission is to destigmatize public breastfeeding, educate men about what a vital role they play, and empower and support women.

Photo Of Baby-Toting Dad Doing His Daughter’s Hair Goes Viral

It’s not hard to understand why this picture went viral: 39-year-old Doyin Richards and his kids are pretty damn cute. As Doyin explained on his blog, Daddy Doin Work, his wife usually does his two-year-old daughter’s hair in the mornings but one day she was running late. He was on paternity leave in October, whe…

Girl Talk: Assorted Thoughts On Being Raised By A Single Dad

Here is a collection of memories from my childhood.

I am in kindergarten, it is story time, I am wearing a turtleneck that itches at my neck and I am not feeling well. I throw up on the rug, in front of everyone, sobbing hysterically, and my father leaves the campus where he’…

13 Things Our Dads Just Don’t Get About Us (in GIFs!)

Our wish this Father’s Day is that we can make it through an entire 24-hour period without our dads looking at us with that perplexed face they make sometimes. Like when you say, “I need to run to the drugstore because we’re out of lotion.” Then he’ll be like, “But we have four bottles Lubriderm…

7 Fictional Father Figures Who Helped Raise Me

I’ve written before about why my dad is awesome, but looking back at my childhood, he definitely wasn’t the only father figure in my life. Being the imaginative weirdo that I was, most of my alternate dads were completely and totally fictional, but that didn’t make them any less integral to my emotional development. It…

This Wall Street Journal Article About Stay-At-Home Dads And “Masculine” Parenting Is Annoying

The Wall Street Journal published an article this week about “a new model of at-home fatherhood,” spawned by the rise of stay-at-home dads and inclusiveness of fathers in the day-to-day parenting.  While the WSJ wasn’t quite arguing that parenting is all duded up and bro-ed out, it did argue that stay-at-home dads have put a “distinctly…

Nerd Girl Porn: Super Hot Dads Holding Super Adorable Babies

Most would probably agree that the sight of a dad holding a baby in one of those swaddle things is basically the hottest thing ever because it touches on two primal urges — the desire to f**k and the desire to procreate. I’m not saying all women want kids, but a glimpse of a hot…

7 Reasons I’m Glad I Have A Weird Dad

Whenever Father’s Day rolls around I’m reminded, once again, that I don’t have a “typical” dad. He doesn’t own a tie. He’s never worked in an office. As far as I know he’s never touched a golf club (except maybe to use it as a weapon?). My dad, in a nutshell, is weird. He spent…

Father’s Day Gift Guide: Dadcessories For The Modern Man

So Father’s Day is this weekend, as well as my dad’s birthday, and the only thing he says he wants is flip-flops. Fortunately, my dad is a pretty easy guy to shop for, because you could get him anything and he’d still feign like he loves it. Socks! Off-brand polo shirts! Gloves! No puppies, though…

Dating Advice From My Dad

My dad is a very wise man. He knows when to keep his mouth shut, which is pretty much whenever it comes to my love life. On other fronts he is and always has been very vocal — even a little bit hot headed. It’s the Brooklyn in him. In high school, when I got…

Girl Talk: My Dad Was My Menstruation Role Model

When I got my period for the first time, my mom wanted to throw a party. She had the whole thing planned. There would be a circle of women — many of them her friends, who would talk about womanhood with me, share their womanly wisdom, and tell rousing tales of menstruation. My mom would…
