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

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

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!

I think they're creepy too but I was sexually abused as a child so you can't go by me.

There was a daddy daughter dance at my elementary school, my dad was encouraged to take us but was utterly creeped out when people acted like it was a dance and not a bunch of dads giving their wives a night off while they compared the cuteness of their kids dancing the hokey pokey.
