Dads Not Fans of ‘Hookup Culture’

One of my big complaints about the existing literature on so-called "hookup culture" — including last weekend's New York Times article — is that it excludes men entirely. Men never write articles or books on the topic, and they're not interviewed for them either. They are only described anecdotally as the coldhearted exploiters of a system designed to keep women slutty and sad. Like the guy one woman from the Times story had “been making out with ... not sure how far she wanted to go,” until he stood up and said, “Get down on your knees.” Our heroine acquiesces, figuring “it will be over soon enough.” I’d love to know how her male peers feel about that exchange, but for now I’m settling for what a father of three girls, education-reform blogger, and Kase Capital hedge-fund manager Whitney Tilson (not pictured) has to say. He thinks girls who get drunk and/or hook up are “massively stupid” and he spelled out a five-point action plan for his daughters on his blog.

Remember, over 10 years ago they had an article in some woman's magazine about the father who drove his daughter to a hookup and paid for the hotel?

"drove his daughter to a hookup and paid for the hotel"

Sounds quite prudent. Didn't want his daughter to be hooking up in a sleazy one-night motel.

There might be some dangerous characters around up to no good.

"Father?" they misspelled "pimp."

What was Rush’s name for this? “Trickle-Down Immorality”.

4 out of 5 of “dad’s” responses advocate the daughter using physical violence. then he ends with saying he’d buy a gun and find the guy, insinuating he’d shoot the guy.

Not very smart of dad to advocate physical violence. His first idea, walking away, is the best one and he should have stopped right there.

Better yet teach your daughters not to be making out with every guy they date. If you are tonguing the guy on the first second, third, fourth date etc... you have already told him you are ready.

Our children practice courting not dating.

RULES:
Initial each Rule after reading.

Rule One: If you talk with foul words and dress like a bad ass, a punk or a wanna-be-gangster I will toss you right out on your tush.

Rule Two: If you date my daughter you date only her. She has a kind heart and I will not have you make my her cry; if she does, I will make you cry. You may only date ONE of my daughters. EVER.

Rule Three: You must know how to cook as well as I have taught my daughter(s) to cook. Frozen dinners do not count.

Rule Four: Do not be hurt when my daughter chooses a day at the spa with me over sports or gaming time with you. She was raised that family comes first and until there is a ring on her finger, I am her family, not you.

Rule Five: Do not date my daughter for her money because I am her bank. Do not expect gifts, she has been taught to be a savvy shopper.

Rule Six: Don’t sleep with my daughter; the only rubber you should be concerned about is out in the driveway and has Goodyear stamped on it.

Rule Seven: Do not lie to me. I may appear to be a pudgy, baggy-eyed, last-season, has-been. But on issues relating to my daughter, I am the queen of her universe. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth. If you do not I will ask her. Do not trifle with me.

Rule Eight: My daughter has been raised to respect herself, so keep your hands to yourself. Offending body parts will be removed by me with a dull spoon.

Rule Nine: Do not be hurt when my daughter chooses spending time with me over spending time with you. She was raised that family comes first and until there is a ring on her finger, I am her family, not you. Yes, I know this is also Rule Four. It is an important one.

Rule Ten: My daughter is not a toy. She does not have Hasbro, Mattel or any other toy company tattooed on her person. Hence, she is not an object for you to play with, manipulate, and discard at your leisure. I suffered through 42 hours of labor to have her, and will unleash an unimaginable amount of anger such that the movie 300 will look like an episode of the Little House on the Prairie should you cross me.

I SWEAR THAT ALL INFORMATION SUPPLIED ABOVE IS TRUE AND CORRECT TO THE BEST OF MY KNOWLEDGE UNDER PENALTY OF DEATH, DISMEMBERMENT, NATIVE AMERICAN ANT TORTURE, CRUCIFIXION, ELECTROC UTION, CHINESE WATER TORTURE, RED HOT POKERS, AND HILLARY CLINTON KISS TORTURE.

Pastor/Priest/Rabbi State Representative/Congressman

Please allow four to six years for processing.

Old saying: if you have a son, you only have to worry about one d***. If you have a daughter, you have to worry about every d*** in town.

Most Dads don’t want their daughters to grow up to be a Sandra Fluke. Even the liberal ones (though they won’t admit it).

I’d like to think you are right, but I have seen more evidence to the contrary than I’d like.
