Thank you, thank you very much. I'm so honored to accept this award for Hypocritical Sexist of the Year. I really appreciate that clip you all showed, because that scene captured the actual moment of my sexism. Where Bambina's preschool friend (whose father is her daytime caregiver) wanted her to come over for a playdate, but I had to be home for an appointment, so I said we'd reschedule. Then when he countered that I could just drop Bambina off so the kids could still play, and I had an utterly visceral "Not an effing chance in hell!" reaction, well, you can see the acting I did as I politely demurred. The truth being that, as truly nice as this man seems, there is no way on God's green earth that I am leaving my 4 year-old unsupervised with a man not her father, uncle or grandfather. I recognize that this is deeply sexist. I know it and I own it. But I'm still not going to do it.
Thank you, god bless you, and god bless all the awesome dads out there I'm nonetheless unapologetically distrusting.
