'Call Her Daddy' Is Selling $30 T-Shirts That Say 'Cheat On Him,' And It's Anything But Empowering

I can assure you that this is not what feminism looks like.

'Call Her Daddy' Is Selling $30 T-Shirts That Say 'Cheat On Him,' And It's Anything But Empowering

If you haven't heard of "Call Her Daddy," it's a podcast hosted by Alexandra Cooper where she talks about sex and dating. It's owned by Barstool Sports and has grown tremendously since it was started in 2018.

The podcast's audience is generally college-aged females since Alex seeks to offer real and honest advice about relationships and sex from a feminine perspective. However, there has been controversy with the podcast in the past, and it seems as though it's in for another round of scrutiny.

The podcast released a $30 crop-top tee that reads, "Cheat On Him." I looked around in the comments section and on their site just to see if this was some sort of joke or spin-off, but it's not.

And quite frankly, I am disturbed.

I don't really know if this is supposed to come off as feminism, but it is so far removed from the premise of empowering women that I find it hard to believe that this shirt is even real.

The podcast has been called out before for trying to encourage women to manipulate men in an effort to beat them at their own game, and this shirt just seems to be another staple of that branding. But the idea is in no way empowering, and it shouldn't be displayed as such on a T-shirt.

Feminism isn't about encouraging women to disrespect others and then teaching them to expect no repercussions. It doesn't mean we get a free pass at acting terribly, and it certainly doesn't mean cheating on your significant other in the name of power.

Girls can be strong and confident and worthy without needing to be demeaning, disrespectful, and abusive. Associating feminism with this type of message undermines every effort made by women to be seen as strong and capable.

This shirt is unacceptable, and honestly, I can't find any excuse for this type of messaging.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
