Dove Has A New Father’s Day Ad And We Actually Don’t Hate It

Hey look, Dove made an ad that doesn’t make me want to rant about it! The compilation of YouTube videos features 13 guys finding out they’ll be dads for the first time. The ad was inspired by Dove’s findings that 82 percent of men find fatherhood to be an emotionally transformative experience, a statistic that really…

Dads Raising Daughters: On Teaching Girls They Are Strong, Beautiful & Powerful

Last year for Father’s Day, we ran a series of interviews with real-life dads divulging their wisdom on raising independent, vibrant girls. Dads Raising Daughters turned out really lovely, so I’m making a fledgling Frisky tradition of it! This year for fatherly parenting advice, I turned to Josh, who has two girls ages eight and five; Jim,…

Girl Talk: On Redemption In Fatherhood

I’ve written candidly about Mother’s Day and all the ways I think the commercialization of it fucks up our relationships with our moms. My own relationship with my mom has been easy because … well, she’s awesome. But my complex relationship to fatherhood makes both talking and writing about it difficult.

There are…

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’…

Dads Raising Daughters: Wisdom On Love, Dating & (Some Day!) Sex

Last year for Father’s Day, we ran a series of interviews with real-life dads divulging their wisdom on raising independent, vibrant girls. Dads Raising Daughters turned out really lovely, so I’m making a fledgling Frisky tradition of it!

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Winona’s Dad

I love the idea of doing a fashion post inspired by my dad because his complete and total disdain for fashion is one of the major reasons I became interested in it. My dad’s style outlook can be summed up as “function over fashion.” He chooses his outfits based on two factors: comfort, and strategic…

Father Knows Best: Our Dads Solve Our 8 Most Pressing Dilemmas

We’re always running to our moms for advice and wise words, but you know what? Despite their mysterious, often silent presences, our dads possess loads of wisdom too. We rounded up some of our most pressing existential queries and asked our dads to give us their takes. First, let’s meet the dads:

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Rachel’s Dad

In honor of Father’s Day, we thought it would be fun to draw some style inspiration from the most unlikely of sources: our dads. Our fathers’ lifestyles — and fashion senses — vary greatly, but one thing’s for sure: all our dads definitely have a look that’s all their own. Let’s kick things off with…

Hitched: My Dad At My Wedding

My father didn’t walk me down the aisle on my wedding day, but he did help me up some very steep stairs. That’s not a metaphor for the next iteration of my life as a married lady: there were actual stairs, my high heels were ridiculous, and I didn’t want to fall over as I…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Jessica’s Dad

Here at The Frisky, we’re celebrating Father’s Day in style by taking some unexpected fashion cues from our dads. First up was Amelia’s California dad’s amazing ’70s denim-on-denim look. Jessica’s New England-based dad is up next. Here’s how Jess described her computer programmer papa’s style:
“My dad wears shirts or pants with holes i…

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…

Unlikely Style Inspiration: Amelia’s Dad

My dad had a number of signature looks over the course of my childhood, aspects of which I did not and still do not think are cute, like the yellow tinted Lennon-glasses and the pair of Birkenstocks permanently on his feet (with socks in winter). (I did, however, always dig his vintage T-shirt collection.) But…

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…

6 Tips For Having Deep Convos With Dad

My dad can shoot the shit for hours with strangers at Starbucks about pretty much any topic. Why blonde roast is better than French roast. He can have a full on conversation with the TV screen during a basketball game. Why the hell did you do that, you idiot?! He can even carry on a…

Girl Talk: My Single Dad’s Strange Advice Turned Out To Be The Greatest

My father gave great, yet strange advice to me when I was younger. “My advice to you is this,” he said. “Let’s go be bad, let’s go poot in public.” Clearly, my dad is not a man who’s embarrassed of his actions. The only reason he said he wanted kids was so that he could…

Ridiculous Beyoncé Bought Jay-Z $40 Million Learjet For Father’s Day

Beyoncé reportedly bought hubby Jay-Z a $40 million Learjet, with its own kitchen and two bathrooms, as a first Father’s Day present. Bey, you’ve got a problem if you’re making Mariah Carey look normal. [PopCrush]

Ronan Farrow, Woody Allen’s Estranged Son, Serves Up Epic Diss On Father’s Day

Just in case you are unclear about the sordid back story, Ronan Farrow is the 24-year-old biological son (who was accepted to Yale Law at 15) of Woody Allen and Mia Farrow. Woody famously left Mia for their adopted daughter — and Ronan’s adopted sister — Soon-Yi. I particularly like the fact that Mia retweeted…

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…

Father’s Day Field Guide: Dad Music

Most dads–even the weird ones–have one thing in common: their taste in music. After being lectured about the underrated glory of certain bands and seeing them go crazy with their steering wheel drum solos while driving us to soccer practice, we feel we have a pretty good sense of the “Dad Music” genre, and we…
