When you hear the term “daddy issues” what do you think? You can admit it. You think of someone who is emotionally unstable, needy, or perhaps even unable to love. If we can get very honest, you might think of someone who has gone into the exotic dancing profession. People have a lot of negative and close-minded ideas about this term. Funny enough, men have the luxury of accusing women of having daddy issues because when they say the term, they’re usually just referring to someone who hacked into their phone or stopped by their home unannounced. You don’t often hear women talking about men with mommy issues because, well, most of those men are locked up on death row for crimes far more abominable than reading someone’s text messages. I’d like to de-stigmatize the parental issues thing entirely, though. Here is the other (positive) side of daddy issues.
