Photo of N.J. dad wearing 'Feminist Father' shirt goes viral
A photo of a South Jersey dad wearing a shirt that supports his daughter's views on feminism has gone viral on social media, according to a report from Yahoo! Shine.
The photo has been shared over 190,000 times on Tumblr and has more than 14,000 likes and 20,000 shares on Facebook since it was first posted on Sunday by 20-year-old Kristine Speare.
The shirt is on-sale online and has the following text in capital, white letters: "Rules for dating my daughter: 1. I don't make the rules. 2. You don't make the rules. 3. She makes the rules. 4. Her body, her rules. — feminist father."
Speare, a part-time student at Burlington County College, told the website her father is sincere about feminism and the shirt is not a gimmick.
"He's very supportive of me and the decisions I make for myself; he cares so much about me and my passion for feminism," Speare said. "He completely agrees with the shirt's message."
Speare's father Chuck owns a restaurant in Cherry Hill.
