An American dad’s Facebook post on the “rules” for dating his daughters has gone viral. J Warren Welch, who is raising five daughters in Jonesborough, Tennessee, posted a set of his “rules” on Facebook that have since been shared over 27,000 times in less than a week. Here’s the number one rule a potential suitor must abide by in order to date Mr Welch’s daughters: “You’ll have to ask them what their rules are.” This feminist approach is winning Mr Welch so much love on the Internet.
“I’m not raising my little girls to be the kind of women who need their daddy to act like a creepy, possessive badass in order for them to be treated with respect,” writes Mr Welch on Facebook. “You will respect them, and if you don’t, I promise they won’t need my help putting you back in your place.”
