I have a mancard revocation review coming up :\

I was with some friends at the store and they were shopping for swimsuits. One came in and said "what about this one?" and I pointed out:

"That's not a swimsuit, that's a ballet specific leotard".

Everybody looked at me weird and I had to quickly correct...

"No no no... hold on... I have a daughter who took ballet and gymnastics and bla bla bla..."

They still put me up for revocation review...

Dad knowledge is exempt from mancard revocation review. Your knowledge falls under dad knowledge.

Ha. I know more about girls' clothes than my sister, since she has no eye for what her kid is actually wearing.

Better still, I used to go shopping with my best female friend all the time. I know so much about dresses, pants, and even bras that my wife questions me sometimes. But, hey, I was single and got to watch a platonic friend try on clothes several times a month. My friends may have thought I was a little odd, but how many of them had a platonic female friend ask, "can you see too much if I bend over in this tank top?" Or, "can you see my underwear if I sit down in this skirt? I am really trusting your opinion here," or even "is this bra see through in this lighting?"

Thanks for the support. I will invoke the Daddy Exception Rules when I present my case before my local ManCard Revocation Committee. I also read that the "Daddy Exception Rules" where created to cut down on the number of women out there that grow up with daddy-issues. Women with daddy-issues are bad for us all and therefore Daddy Exception Rules must prevail.

That shall be my defense.

Sometimes it's OK for a stout dude to prance around in the privacy of his Florida home in a ballet outfit while listening to the "flight of the bumblebee"
Lessens the pressure of a hectic life in todays economy.

I wear pink dress shirts and bowties and still have no mancard revocations.

If I can do that, then your daddy knowledge is 100% safe.

You should stick to black and white.

I guess as long as your shoes and man purse match the shirt you're good to go.

I believe anything done in daddy duty is pretty much exempt. My soon to be 14 yr old step-daughter can attest to that. I spent 3 hours in the mall hair salon while she got her hair bleached before her cousins wedding. And the younger the child, the more you can get away with

Not only does being a good dad exempt you from mancard revocation review in such circumstances, it adds bonus points for when you might actually be subject to a valid review. Being a good dad is the pinnacle of manhood and manliness - especially when dealing with little girls and their girly needs.
