My Issue With Daddy Issues

fullsizerender-3
This is the latest article I have written for The Odyssey. This is a topic that I’ve had to deal with in my life for quite some time and the term “Daddy Issues” has always made me cringe.
I just feel like this is something that’s not really talked about much, but really should. There are a bunch of statistics about children with absent fathers have to face. But no one really talks about the females without fathers unless it’s in a derogatory way.
You can read the full article here and read an excerpt of it below. Let me know what you think in the comments!

“’The possible side effect that women may recieve if her father has been absent in some part of her life, her father has abused or neglected her, or if her father has simply failed to fulfill his responsibilities/duties as a parent (physically or emotionally). Having daddy issues may cause the following-

• Acting slutily or whoreificly

• Dressing in a non-modest manner

• Going out of her way to grab an older man’s attention…’”

This is the most recent definition of Daddy Issues on Urban Dictionary. There are so many things wrong with this definition that I don’t even know where to begin.”
