Scott Mackintosh, Utah Dad, Wears Short Shorts To Teach His Daughter A Lesson

Scott Mackintosh, Utah Dad, Wears Short Shorts To Teach His Daughter A Lesson

Commented Sep 13, 2013 at 01:57:25 in Parents

“You only agree with them having their own style - if it is something you find acceptable. Also since most teens wear shorts in the spring or summer because it is hot out and they are comfortable in them. As a parent I am not offended by shorts. I am offended by children who bully, are cruel to animals, steal , abuse themselves or others. I am also offended by other parents who are offended by my allowing my daughter to wear shorts yet leave their teens unsupervised to do God knows what because they both need to work so they can have iphones, new cars, expensive vacations etc... I am here every day for my daughter - her dad works hard. We watch our daughter. And if other parents watched their children we wouldn't have to worry about our daughter's being bothered because of what she wears.”

“No one said her cheeks were out - just that they were short. We are not talking about Miley here - who is a disgrace to girls/women everywhere - but not because of what she wears, because of how she acts. My daughter wears shorts- not Bermuda's - regular shorts to school. I drive her and pick her up. I am also a stay at home mom. My daughter is never allowed to stay over a friends house - yet her friends are welcome here. It is funny that I am being attacked by so many for defending a teens right to express themselves thru dress, music etc... when everyone who knows me will tell you I am the most protective mom they know. I have 17 nieces and nephews and have been trusted with caring for most of them many times over the years. They all think I am too strict.Teens are facing a lot of challenges today and we cannot tell them no to everything, because then they will tune us out completely. They are young adults and we have to be give them some respect if we want them to respect us.”

“I didn't mean to make you feel like I was attacking you. I'm sorry. You made it sound like teenagers have a right to wear short shorts. Shorts are fine. I just think this dad did good because his daughter's shorts must have been too short and apparently what he did worked. I don't think he was dumb at all. Every parent is different on how they handle teenage issues. We know our kids more than anyone else knows them. He knew what he had to do to get his point across. It's not fair for you to judge him or call him names for what he did. I think that's why some people were upset with you. You attacked him and called him dumb for the way he parents. Yes, he embarrassed her but it worked. I rather embarrass my kid any day than find her wearing skimpy clothes that disrespects herself. And I'm not saying this about you or your daughter. I know you're a good mom. I know you're daughter has self respect. My comment is about this dad and his daughter. I read something the other day that said something like "If I ever catch my daughter twerking, I will learn how to do it myself and go to every school dance she has and twerk." LOL!! I doubt any mom would do that but still, I'm sure it would have the desired effect! Again, I'm sorry you felt attacked. That was never my intention.”

“To get respect you have to give respect. Something that you don't seem to agree with based on your comments. You expect the youth of today to obey their parents and not speak up for what they believe in? By the way, I was severely reprimanded when I was a teen- my dad was very strict. I would gladly take a few hits before I would do something I didn't agree with. Thank God MOST parents today realize that hitting a child is wrong.I really hope you do not have children because if you do I feel sorry for them.”

Fbodfather on Sep 16, 2013 at 22:22:44

“First - I never said anything about hitting a child. I don't necessarily believe that to get respect you have to give respect. That statement is much too broad. I don't have a problem with youth 'speaking up' within limits. That said, youth usually don't have the experience or the deeper understanding of life...and I believe they could learn more if they'd stop to listen and to understand that parents and grandparents learned from mistakes - and that they can avoid problems and heartache if only they'll sit down and LISTEN to what their parents, aunts, uncles, and grandparents have learned over their lifetimes. What I do have a problem with is youth showing no respect for others. You can dress any way you wish - but that also means that I may not hire you based on the way you dress.”

“What planet are you from? You and this man are embarrassed by a teen wearing short shorts - really - with all the trouble some teens get in- drugs, drinking, gang activities, bullying. stealing,unprotected sex etc... He should thank his lucky stars if the only issue he has with is teen is that he is embarrassed by her attire.”

“My child does wear booty shorts when she dances - she is a dancer. She wears jean shorts to school, as to a lot of the girls.I can assure you I don't wear either. But I am not a teenager - that is my point - teens have a right to express their style as long as long as they are not hurting anyone. Short shorts do not hurt anyone.”

moniqeva on Sep 13, 2013 at 01:29:07

“It hurts the girl who wears them. What is the point other than sexualizing teens. It sends an early msg that this is how to get attention. It devalues their self image. I agree with them wanting their own individual style but you should not be half naked while expressing it. and if they do it says something about them and their parents..”

“Dumbest dad ever. He thinks because he looks like a fool in short shorts that teenage girls will they think they look like fools too,I do not want what has he been smoking? As far as public shaming goes - it is wrong especially to do to someone else. I allow my daughter to express herself in dress. If I feel she crosses the line I will point it out to her. But I do not want some other woman saying nasty things because she does not approve. It is non of her business. And if someone does, they have this mama lion to mess with and trust me you don't want to do that.”

“Girls that wear short shorts that show their butt cheeks DO look like fools. They have no respect for themselves and they are showing how ignorant they are to the world when they dress like that. Skimpy clothes is expressing that she wants people to look at her. And whether we like it or not, rapist and sick pedophiles are looking at these young girls as well. Yes, women should be able to run around naked and not be scared of men or the consequences but that's not how it is. That's not real life. There are bad people who will see something they like and take it, no matter what.”

“your grammar is appalling. Not the dumbest dad ever. "Honor thy mother and thy father" are wise words.

She is rude to guests and has no class at all. Barbra is too boring and Whoopi I can tolerate most of the time.

“You are not going to say the The Basketball Diaries were not the influence behind Columbine - it was a small movie not seen around the world - until after the killings.”

RD2007 on Jan 11, 2013 at 22:55:38

“There's no question that people with serious mental disorders might and probably have obsessed on specific violent movies. But it's a huge jump to claim that the violent movie caused the mental disorder. If the shooters involved with Columbine had not obsessed on The Basketball Diaries, it's probable that they would have obsessed on some other violent movie or book or song. The main difference between the US and other places in the world where violent media is readily available is the ease with which people with serious mental disorders can obtain deadly weapons in this country.”

“What happened to freedom of speech - She made no threats against the president - saying you don't care if someone kills someone may not be nice but it is not a CRIME. Also using the N word is not right but it is not a crime. And saying it is okay for someone of a certain race to use that word is not okay. I am Italian I do not want anyone using the many deragatory slangs to attack me regardless of their nationality.”

Michael Junius on Nov 11, 2012 at 16:19:31

“Having the freedom of speech also means you have to take responsibility for it. No one took her right away. What you're upset about is the backlash she received. You get praise or backlash for your freedom of speech. She deserved what she got for her stupidity and racist comments. It says if her threats where legit, she can face a crime. Obviously, her threats weren't legit, just stupid, immature, and deserving of a firing from her company because people were going to boycott the business. She said what she said, now she has to live with the moronic things that came out of her mouth.”

paganmist on Nov 11, 2012 at 16:19:07

“Angrily mentioning the President of the country alongside assassination is potentially a crime, for the obvious reason that Presidents are prime targets for being killed and have been throughout history. That's the crime people refer to, though they really shouldn't be using that word.

Using the n-word, on the other hand, is considered hate speech. A company has every right to fire an employee who publicly engages in hate speech in such a way where that company's reputation, brand, and income are damaged. Coldstone Creamery has worked hard to create a brand to appeal to a diverse customer base. Keeping this woman on staff will destroy that. They're not required to destroy themselves to support a customer who's engaging in socially unacceptable behavior. Furthermore, if the owners of the store disagree with her perspective and consider it to be indecent, they're allowed to fire her specifically because she signed an agreement saying they could.

Virtually everyone signs an agreement like that before being hired, though few people actually read it.”

“Based on what the testimony is we don't even know if what she say is true. Don't you find it unusual that one of the boys tried to get to perform oral on him and when she wouldn't, he didn't force it? Or the fact that they had digital penetration instead of intercourse, that maybe they did what she was ok with, but when they wanted to go further, she might of said no so they didn't force it? Not that any type of sexual contact is ok if she said no or if she was to drunk to consent, but I never heard of a rapist who stopped at any point without forcing for more than just digital penetration. Maybe this is one of those instances where she's not being honest like her friends said she isn't. Maybe she's crying wolf out of humiliation or fear of getting in trouble since the encounter was posted. I think if the prosecutors really believed in their case that they would have charged a 16 and especially a 17 year old as adults. Her selective memory doesn't help either. She remember what works against them, but don't remember what would make her look bad, when it all was from the same accurance.”
