Back in the day Offbeat Mama used to have a post series about DILFs (yes, it stands for what you think it stands for — think MILF) being praised for their awesome sexy dad ways. The feature was fun, but also problematic as it was inherently heteronormative (what about sexy lesbian moms?) and nuclear family-focused (what about single parents? offbeat aunties?). Some people also thought it was tacky, but that never bothered us. We’re fine with tacky, but not so much with excluding lesbian and non-nuclear families.
But the FUN thing about DILFs was that you guys got to send in photos of your loves and tell us why and how they’re rocking parenthood, and then everyone else got to drool and/or celebrate the person in question. We really loved that the DILF series allowed us to recognize that sexiness doesn’t stop after parenthood. That’s well-worth celebrating!
After debating for a bit, we’ve decided to resurrect and rebrand the old DILF series — now it’s called EYE CANDY, a completely inclusive way for you to unabashedly gush about the caregiver in your child’s life that is the hottest of the hot. Hot moms, hot dads, hot aunties and hot uncles, hell: HOT GRANDPARENTS. We want to celebrate all the hotness.
So now we want it all: send us photos and details as to why someone is smokin’ and we’ll post it so everyone can ogle and gush. It’ll be FUN!
