18 Reasons Why Dads Are The G.O.A.T

No dad, I'm not calling you a goat like the animal.

18 Reasons Why Dads Are The G.O.A.T
Caroline Hernandez

On June 18, we will be celebrating the other half that helped create us, who are best known as dad. Hence the day Father's Day falls on this year, I present to you the 18 reasons dads are the greatest of all time:

1. They never fail to make us laugh

As much as we say we "hate" dad jokes, we can't help but still laugh at them.

2. They give the best advice

Dads are brutally honest and they will tell you to use your brain, not your heart.

3. They always have our backs

When Mom says no, just run to Dad and he'll say yes.

4. They teach us to be strong and independent

"Don't you dare cry over that boy. You don't need him."

5. They send the most precious texts

Nothing sweeter than your dad making a "you're adopted" joke!

6. They are the best food buddies to have

Craving tacos? Dad will know the best taqueria to go to. Maybe you're feeling sushi for dinner? Bet he'll know multiple places. It's late at night but you're really hungry? You can count on your dad to take you to McDonald's to get some chicken nuggets!

7. They are our partners in crime

What else could be better than conspiring with your dad to pull the funniest prank on your mom? Even your mom is going to be laughing about it rather than yelling at the two of you.

8. They set the standards high for the boys we date

"I brought your mom her favorite flowers every day and I always gave her chocolate imported from Europe."

9. They push us to do and be our best

We can count on them to motivate us. Aside from our moms, they are our other number one fan. They will never stop believing in us because they know we can do anything we set our mind to.

10. They raise us to have thick skin

When people try to get under your skin, you just laugh because your dad taught you better than that.

11. They teach us about everything from sports to history

Thank to our dads for exposing us to sports because when boys ask us to name five basketball teams or footballs teams, we don't have to hesitate. Not only that, but we can also surprise everyone with our knowledge about different countries and their cultures.

12. They train us to be strong-willed

They emphasize the importance of hard work. They want us to have determination, so we can succeed.

13. They financially support us

Cute dress with an outrageous price tag or quick run to Chipotle, you can count on him to come through.

14. They keep us grounded

They may spoil us, but they still make sure we don't become foolish.

15. They have the best taste in music

One minute, we're jamming to "It's My Life" by Bon Jovi. The next, we're rapping along to Chance the Rapper's "No Problem".

16. They are always here to make us feel better

Sure, they're not always be sweet about it, but we know they mean well. Tough love, am I right?

17. They work hard to give us everything.

We can never thank our dads enough for all that they've done just so we can have what we need and what we want in life.

18. Most importantly, they love us no matter what.

Regardless of how many times we've disappointed our dads, they will never stop loving us. They are always there to help us back up.

Here's to all the dads out there. Thank you for being you!

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
