Some kids think parents live to embarrass them. One Utah father decided to live up to that expectation to teach his teen daughter his fashion motto: “Modest is hottest.”

Scott Mackintosh wanted his kid to know her too-short-shorts “maybe aren’t as ‘cute’ as she thinks,” so he sliced up an old pair of jeans to wear on a family night out. There were photos taken, and yes, they went viral after his daughter posted them on Tumblr.

I was absolutely going for shock value and a little bit of embarrassment,” the Daisy Dukes-wearing dad explained.

What do the femme-a-gogues at Jezebel think? Something to do with oppressive phallocracy or something. Also? Down with the “tyranny of modesty” for teenage girls!

Parents have a wide range of views on what’s appropriate for children, but even after reading the post, we’re missing what’s “dangerous” about wanting teenage girls to know that their worth doesn’t come from flashing underbutt when they walk.

Mackintosh wrote in a blog post that there was no “Dad, I get it” moment after he donned the skimpy shorts. But he also told the “Today” show that “his daughter has been better about her choice in shorts.”

“My daughter will always know that her dad loves her and cares about her enough to make a fool out of himself,” he wrote.

That is Jezebel’s idea of a dangerous agenda? Really? A household with age-appropriate expectations for children?

Breitbart News’ Mary Chastain and others took Jezebel to task.

          One of the functions of Disqus is that you have to be logged in to down vote.
          So, when you ban someone from an site, they can no longer leave comments, but they can down vote.

            (I might suggest, however, that any young boy watching a show like Toddlers and Tiaras might want to BE Alana, or one of those girls. Not that there’s anything wrong with that, if that’s the kinda boy he turns out to be– just a thought. “Keep a weather eye on the horizon,” though, all’s I’m saying.)

            Bud, my grandson is a little short of four months. I was making a joke based on his perceived interest in a TV show. If you have issues with the whole teeny beauty queen thing, then let me assure you neither he nor I have any sexual interest there. Also, speaking for someone who has yet to see his first baby teeth, I doubt seriously he has considered the gay option. Truly.

            Actually, I have issues with people like Alana, Mama June, and Sugar Bear allowing themselves to be made fun of as if they were somehow typical of rural Southern white people. They know they’re being laughed AT– they’re not stupid (really, they are doing much of it with a wink and a nod to begin with)– but they figure, the money they make will pay the bills, so who get the last laugh? Meanwhile, the elites on the coasts get to point to the Honey Boo Boo show and say, that’s the goober-Republican voter base for you.

    Feminists care about nothing other than the unfettered ability for women to screw as many people as possible without complaint, criticism, or consequence.

      I think the problem is…they’re NOT getting scr**ed, at least not by quality men, who will have nothing to do with them, because they’re quality and like quality female partners…. and don’t want their balls cut off. They’re stuck with quivering little Beta males who are scared to death of them. Probably lots of failures in the bedroom, if you know what I’m saying.

      This is why Jenna Marbles’ video “Things I don’t Understand about Girls; Sl*t Edition” got so much feminist backlash, but a mere 20,000 dislikes compared to 100,000 likes. They were mad she called them out, or “judged” them.

        Feminists are really just an inconsistent bunch altogether. They’re free to dress skimpy, but they get mad when a male draws a skimpily dressed woman.

    Post-modern feminism is no longer about ensuring that women are not treated as sexual objects. It’s to ensure that the entire concept of ‘morality’ is dismantled.

    I swear, the new motto is, “stop slut shamming!” They don’t get that the feminist movement of the 60s was all about being taken seriously as a person and not as sex object. Now it’s all about their body. Oh, but they still want to be paid more and don’t dare give them a compliment when they show off said body. Morons.

    • Bathing Suit Area

      It’s almost as if feminists think that being sexual shouldn’t disqualify you from being taken seriously. Crazy.

      • umad80

        Ah yes, because that’s *exactly* what I said. Women can’t be taken seriously if they’re sexual. That’s how I feel as a woman. *eye roll* What I was saying is that these girls today want to wear the sluttiest thing, have multiple partners, and be *nothing more* than that. That they’ve LOST sight of what the point of feminism is. They go on the slut walks with the skimpiest little outfits and then get bitchy when a man compliments them. What they SHOULD be doing is showing off their body AND mind. Because THAT is what makes a person. And more. A beautiful mind, a beautiful heart, a beautiful soul, wrapped up in a beautiful body. And it doesn’t matter what that body is… short, tall, fat, thin… doesn’t matter. And that’s how people should be taken. And they are. It’s so rare these days that a woman isn’t taken seriously unless they make themselves not be taken seriously. Which they are doing today.

        • Bathing Suit Area

          “and be *nothing more* than that.”

          No. That’s utterly untrue. The only reason you’d think that is if you assume that is if seeing a woman as sexual negates everything else she is and does.

          • umad80

            Utterly untrue? Go to tumblr once. They don’t care about anything else other than being able to wear slutty outfits and have multiple partners. One of the posts going around during the summer? A girl who *claimed* she couldn’t wear short shorts because the male teacher was “sexualizing” her body. Not because of school code or anything. In fact, there shouldn’t be a school code. She should be able to wear nothing but a bra and underwear to school if she so chooses. That’s what they’re aiming for today. I rarely see posts about women upping the ranks of the military. Or female scientists. Or women in politics (unless it’s a dem or they make fun of a republican woman). Or women in anything other than being a short miniskirt and getting upset if a man whistle’s at her.

            So don’t tell me it’s utterly untrue. While there are plenty of women fighting to be taken seriously as a beautiful woman (and they SHOULD be) AND a smart one, there are teenage girls and young adult girls who are doing the complete opposite.

          • Bathing Suit Area

            So because she wanted to wear shorts in summer but was creeped out by a teacher ogling her, she must not care about anything else?

            Teenagers’ tumblr pages can be pretty facile, but guess what, that’s the story of “damn kids these days” ever since humanity was living in caves.

What they SHOULD be doing is showing off their body AND mind. Because THAT is what makes a person. And more. A beautiful mind, a beautiful heart, a beautiful soul, wrapped up in a beautiful body. And it doesn’t matter what that body is… short, tall, fat, thin… doesn’t matter. And that’s how people should be taken. And they are. It’s so rare these days that a woman isn’t taken seriously unless they make themselves not be taken seriously. Which they are doing today.

      It’s almost as if feminists think that being sexual shouldn’t disqualify you from being taken seriously. Crazy.

    The purpose of Gender Studies classes is to get people to major in Gender Studies, a line of work for which there is no employment other than..teaching Gender Studies. It is a sort of educational Pyramid scheme…

    Love this Dad and reminds me of my own father and my husband. The biggest problem is the media, pop culture pundits and stores who make it impossible to find clothing that is acceptable for our daughters to wear! Wish more parents would push back and say enough already to sleaze!

    Dad wearing the old Magnum PI shorts. I wonder what this girl would think if she was able to walk behind herself and observe the underbutt hanging out. If we were all able to observe ourselves from behind–we’d be mortified!

    Tyranny of Modesty is probably the single most asinine thing I’ve heard from the Leftwingnut morons in quite some time. What’s next? The Curse of Respect? The Bogeyman of Competence? The Heinousness of Civility?

    Oh, I got it! The Domination of Manners!
