Say hi to Myley Mackintosh.

Myley likes to wear "Daisy Duke" shorts. According to Myley, "Mom told me to change out of my slutty shorts before the family went out to dinner. I thought I looked fine and told her so. Dad said 'really?'. Next thing I know he has gone up stairs and cut up a pair of his old jeans. We went to dinner and out to mini golf with him looking like this".
His wife Becky put this together for her blog which used to be called Becky Mack's blog of mild chaos, but in the last 24 hours has been renamed dadshorts.com. Scott wrote his explanation;
“I know the world has varying degrees of what is modest and what is not when it comes to clothing. In our family we have pretty definite modesty guidelines; No mid-drift or low-cut shirts, no short-shorts, short skirts and we even go as far as saying no sleeveless shirts unless playing sports or on the beach. Having raised four daughters and three sons, I’m a bit protective. Some may call me old fashion, but I call it “A Dad who loves his daughters” (and sons too) I know some of you may be rolling your eyes and that’s okay, my daughter does it all the time. I’m a firm believer that the way we dress sends messages about us, and it influences the way we and others act.”
Now that it's gone viral Scott told the Desert News; I hope that young women everywhere understand their great worth. I will look like an idiot any day if that point gets across." And with that he gets my vote for best dad ever.
