This is great!

I could not agree more. My daughter has a great relationship with her father for many reasons. Not the least of which I have encouraged it from her birth. My father raped me. He abused my mother and my oldest brother. He was a fucking monster. But still: I wanted my daughter to love her Dad; to know that there are men who will love you for you. She deserved / deserves that. And I am so grateful that her Dad has done all that for her. I do not demonize men. I love the gender. I judge only by the person. And in my case? My girl is soooooo blessed. And I think it has in fact set her up to expect to be respected and treated like a valuable person in a relationship. I would NEVER dismiss the import of that.
