Dad’s short-shorts modesty shocker

Dad wears SHORT shorts to prove a point to his daughter.

A US man has caused an online sensation by wearing short-shorts (or “Daisy Dukes”) in order to prove a point about modesty to his teen daughter, according to Gawker.

There’s a bigger story behind the shorts picture, says the man himself in his blog:


Scott Mackintosh said it was his wife and daughters who shared the now-infamous picture, but he stands by the intention he had in wearing the cut-offs.
He says he has been called old-fashioned, but that he loves his daughters and sons, and that he believes that the clothes we wear send a message about ourselves. He suggests that the way one of his daughters had been dressing was inappropriate and immodest, and for that reason he had donned the shorts on a family outing to a restaurant.

He admits that wearing the shorts as a lesson probably didn’t teach his daughter what he’d hoped- about modesty- but rather it had proven the point that at least he loves her enough to make a fool out of himself.

Do you think his short-shorts lesson was effective?
