There is no decorum anymore. Young girls are seemingly allowed to dress however they want. They wear yoga pants or leggings (or whatever they’re called) to school, and it makes me wonder if they even have fathers. I don’t have children, but if I have a daughter, she will not be wearing such clothing.
The first week I worked there, I turned to my boss and said, “Would you have let your eight-year-old daughter wear yoga pants?” He responded as a good father should: “Fuck no.”
A daughter’s wardrobe should have to pass her father’s inspection. A father should ask: does this make my daughter look slutty, homeless, or crazy? If yes, it gets thrown out.
I know where this desire to wear yoga pants comes from: adult women. These young girls want to emulate older women. I’m far from an expert on children, but it seems to me girls are more impressionable than boys. This is why fathers need to lay down the law because girls get no help from their mothers who apparently either don’t care what their daughters wear or who encourage their daughters to wear this shit.
The teachers are also very bad examples. As a man, I love seeing early twenties knockouts wear yoga pants. It’s great. The problem is the girls emulate these teachers, and now third graders dress like adult women, women who leave nothing to imagination.
My grandmother would tell me, when I would dress myself as a boy, “always leave the house looking respectable.” Skin-tight clothing on young girls is not respectable. Strong grandparents can help, but it must be strong fathers who put an end to their daughters dressing like harlots.
Maybe where I live this is more common, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it is common elsewhere. Does anybody see this where they live? Are there any fathers out there with daughters? How do you handle your daughter’s choices in clothing?
