I think "daddy daughter dances" are creepy (edit)

I don't mean just a dad dancing with his daughter spontaneously listening to music at home or a wedding or party or something.  That alone isn't creepy.  But where I live they seem to advertise these a lot as an event thing (called sappy things like "sweethearts ball" where dads get tickets and dress up and have a "date" with their daughter.  That weirds me out.

Yes I am super sensitive because I have unfortunately seen too many cases of sex abuse, so it gives me a wary mindset, but  the truth is it *is* a problem sometimes and in some families and I really don't like any kind of romantic overtones pushed or encouraged with dads and daughters.

If it was even a family dance where everyone could come and boogie it wouldn't bother me so much...but they get so weird with it here, imo.  Thoughts?


EDIT:  Not that this will stop the bashers and people who seem to relish calling me sick and taunt me about how I must have been abused (nice guys!) but no I don't think everyone who goes to these is a child molester waiting to happen.  I just find it creepy how its promoted.  But now I also find it creepy how if you even suggest something weirds you out you get totally torn apart and mocked for possible abuse in your past.  Wow thanks guys!

Where the hell are you from?

Father daughter dances are sweet and innocent where I come from.

You have issues. I don't have girls but I have no problem with the father daughter dances. I think your minds in the gutter.

I love that they have dad/daughter dances. It's nice for dad and daughters to spend some time without mom around.

LOL I expected to be bashed.  I don't know why I'm "sick" when I'm not doing anything to abuse children, just super wary because I know people who have been abused and have volunteered with abused kids.  I understand some people have led more sheltered lives and don't have twitchy worries about things, but it does weird me out, and thanks for having a kick at me for it.  That's really "sweet and endearing" of you.


Quoting atyou:

I see your point, but for the majority, it's adorable.
