Utah Dad Wears Short Shorts To Teach His Daughter A Lesson

A Utah dad fed up with his daughter's short shorts decided to do something that would make her realize they might not be as cute as she thinks.

Scott Mackintosh, a husband and father of seven, recently headed out with his family for some bonding time, he describes on his wife's blog, Becky Mack's Blog of Mild Chaos. The plan was to go to dinner and play miniature golf.

Before leaving, he heard his wife asking his teenage daughter to put on some longer shorts. When the girl responded, "no," Mackintosh decided to, "make a 'small' statement on how her short-shorts maybe aren’t as 'cute' as she thinks!"

So, he grabbed a pair of jeans, cut them into a tiny pair of shorts above the pocket and threw on a T-shirt reading, "Best. Dad. Ever."

The family got stares at the restaurant and stares at the mini-golf course, but his daughter still didn't seem to mind. Finally, when they ended the night with milkshakes, she decided to stay in the car instead of going through any more embarrassment.

There was no, “Dad, I get it,” or, “Dad, you’re the best…. thanks for that awesome lesson.” I don’t think my object lesson of, “modest is hottest,” made the statement I had intended.

But, no matter if social media gets the story mixed up and twisted, my daughter will always know that her dad loves her and cares about her enough to make a fool out of himself.

His daughter posted the photo of her dad to her Tumblr, writing, "My mom told me to change my 'slutty' shorts before we went to dinner. I said, "no. So my dad cut his jeans to fit in. We went to dinner and then mini golf like this."
The post has since gotten over 130,000 notes. The photo also made it's way to the social sharing site, Reddit.

After the story got picked up by various news outlets, Mackintosh decided to clarify a few things about his purpose.

"I simply did this in hopes that my daughter would know of my great love for her and that she knows of her great worth," he said in a statement to Desert News. "Now that it has gone viral, I hope that young women everywhere understand their great worth. I will look like an idiot any day if that point gets across."

Mackintosh told Salt Lake City's KSL that he has not seen his daughter's short shorts since then.

"She's dressed a little bit better since then," he said. "Yeah, she has."

Mackintosh's story comes on the heels of a national debate about whether adults should be telling kids what to wear following a, "slut shaming," viral blog post written by a Texas mother.

While some parents shake their fingers at short shorts, other parents are fine with letting their children wear whatever clothing they desire.

As for the practice of public shaming, which involves potentially embarrassing one's child in a public manner as a means of discipline, some view it negatively.

"It's not just that humiliating people, of any age, is a nasty and disrespectful way of treating them," Alfie Kohn, author of, Unconditional Parenting: Moving from Rewards and Punishments to Love and Reason, previously said. "It's that humiliation, like other forms of punishment, is counterproductive. 'Doing to' strategies -- as opposed to those that might be described as 'working with' -- can never achieve any result beyond temporary compliance, and it does so at a disturbing cost."

I think so too. I love the phrase "Modest is hottest". I don't think that kind of shaming is damaging at all. (As opposed to making a kid hold a sign that says "I'm a slut/criminal/brat/etc.")I am sure parents accidentally embarrass their kids to a greater degree all the time. Might as well make the "embarrassing dad" bit serve a purpose.

haha, if only this worked on the female brain.

Pretty sure she will be turned out by all the "evil men" in college and beyond.

Re: Utah Dad Wears Short Shorts To Teach His Daughter A Lesson

I don't have kids, but if I did and one told me "no" like it seems this one did, I'd turn and slap the hell out of her. You don't disrespect your parents. If I'd had a few more sessions with a belt, I probably would have turned out better.

I'm all for public shaming.

It depends on what the child did. The girl was probably following a fashion trend.

Parents need to explain the pedophiles out there.

I'm for public punishment of criminals though

I thought of, "Uncle Buck," threatening to go to school to pick up the kids in his pajamas and slippers.

Re: Utah Dad Wears Short Shorts To Teach His Daughter A Lesson

I'm one of those people who would pull an "Uncle Buck". Personally, I'm of the mind that if I'm paying for it, then I have all the say in the world as to what you wear. I could slap my nieces for half the crap I see them wear.

Now, don't get me wrong. I work in the adult industry and I'm by no means a prude. However, I think you should only dress like a slut once you're old enough to vote and take care of your own responsibilities. If you don't have a job to buy your own clothes, then you don't need to be advertising.

Re: Utah Dad Wears Short Shorts To Teach His Daughter A Lesson

Wow. I've stopped my dad from going out in socks and sandals and cut off jean shorts before, but the shorts weren't this short. Of course none of my dad's kids ever tried to leave the house in booty shorts. I don't see what this dad did as slut shaming. And he would probably do the same thing to his son. At least he cares enough to try to get through to her even if he has to go out looking silly.

And she shouldn't have told her mother no in the first place.
