my kids don’t believe me when I tell them this selfie was the hardest thing I ever did

‘but you looked so fierce dad’

‘you were trending for 2 years’

‘most iconic selfie of all time’

‘you broke the Internet!’

looking at the photo now

I agree on my fierceness

was definitely slaying and serving DILF realness

but in that moment I was terrified

it was not my intention to be the face of the movement

I just couldn’t abide with those unfair and inhumane laws

we also deserve the right to be on social media

so what if they aren’t ready to deal with the reality of us

it warms my heart to see how far we’ve now come

take that Florence and the damn Machine

the dog days aren’t over
