Adorable dads.

The writers Marisa Crawford and Lizzy Acker started this blog a few months ago: http://adorabledads.tumblr.com/

This is their mission statement:

sometimes dads do really cute stuff.  like hold babies or kitties or make you mac and cheese.  we support that kind of behavior so we (marisa and lizzy) created adorabledads.tumblr.com.

 

I think it is totes feminist and totes awesome. As a former nanny, and current teacher of youth, I have  sensed the stigma of males working with/being around children. “You are a professional babysitter? (guffaw) Seriously?” It sometimes seems that the prevailing school of thought is: Adult male+kids=Pervy. Or at best: Adult male+ kids=Weird. I like that this blog features dads being great. I also especially enjoy the vintage dads doing vintage things. Like biting their baby’s ear.

 

Check out Bob Glück and son. Being adorable is a serious matter!

 

They’re looking for submissions. If you’re a dad, or mother, or child of a dad, find some adorable pics and send em in. It’s a fun and easy way to break down gender stereotypes.
