Being close to your father is not creepy
I have no idea when this became a thing but apparently, a father being touchy-feely with their child is wrong while a mother doing it is completely fine and even shown as adorable. This is entirely the reason so many fathers aren’t close to their children because they don’t want people to think wrong of them. I could never understand why this is a thing as a parent showing their love for their child is beautiful no matter how old their kid is.
Just because you are a forty-year-old man doesn’t mean in your parent’s eyes, you aren’t still a kid who peed in his pants. I know many kids who would love to have this kind of relationship with their father but can’t have that for many reasons. So when a picture of Joe Biden with his father surfaced, some people called it creepy.
All I see is a Father being close to his son and that is it. So it is no wonder many people joined in with their own pictures to disapprove of that trolls world view.
This is the original picture that sparked a ‘debate’.
People are only saying that is inappropriate because of his place in the democracy and the fact that he is running against trump. if he was just an average man people would see this as an adorable father-son connection. -mysty
#1 Nobody can tell me that it isn’t beautiful.
#2 Just look at that heartwarming smile!
#3 Who is the father in this picture because they look like brothers.
#4 This has turned a sour day into a wonderful one.
#5 I mean how can this be wrong?
#6 Such a beautiful show of fatherly love.
#7 It’s lovely to have parents that believe in you no matter what.
#8 The only thing I can say is aww.
#9 Kids are naturally clingy and it is adorable.
#10 A perfect snap!
#11 You never know what you had until you don’t.
#12 I can see it is some sort of celebration? Perhaps a wedding?
#13 An oldie but a goodie.
#14 This is why you cherish every moment you have with your parents.
#15 Because you never know when you won’t have the luxury to do so.
Even strangers to these men would know what it means. All of us, after all, were once children. In this case, to know the circumstances in which it was taken is to know that it is a picture full of pain, love, forgiveness, and acceptance, and to look at it for even more than a moment is to experience at least some of those emotions, especially in the memory of our own parents or children. -Nichols
#16 As they shouldn’t have to!
#17 I mean how can this ever be considered creepy?
#18 It might be blurry but the love is clear as day.
#19 He definitely deserves the best father in the world mug.
#20 You know you have a great relationship when you have too many pictures.
#21 Okay the baby is adorable and the father is ecstatic.
#22 And I believe he accomplished that goal.
#23 Those are the best kind of naps after all.
#24 Sometimes words aren’t enough.
#25 And when you get someone tipsy, they will definitely turn touchy-feely.
More accurately, it is a child’s view of masculinity. Come on, Dad quit it, guys don’t kiss. This is the insecurity of the boys who did not learn that to accept a father’s embrace is part of becoming a man. -Nichols
#26 He is his father now. No changing that fact.
#27 Nobody is perfect but it enviable that you are trying.
#28 We all would love to do that with our parents who are no longer here.
#29 The baby is just as happy as him.
#30 Need I say more?
Don’t all the pictures bring a warming feeling into your heart? Don’t forget to share so others can experience it as well.
