When You Have A Misogynistic Father

Sometimes, I pity him

I’m not saying it’s right or wrong. I’m not trying pass judgment on myself for the feeling. It just is what it is, and what it is is this: sometimes, women will be hard on my dad for accidentally breaking one of today’s rules. Sometimes someone will lecture him on not calling her “Doll” or “Hun,” and, honestly, it makes me sad. They don’t know what I know about my dad—about all the sacrifices he’s made and all the ways he’s been there for me. To them, he’s just another old man with outdated opinions who needs a lecture. But…that’s my dad.
