A dad gives his daughter a challenge. She accepts it. Now his nails are fabulous.

Father-daughter bonding done right.

Doyin Richards knows what people are thinking when they see him walk into a nail salon.

He says he often gets odd looks from people wondering what a 6'2", 205-pound black guy is doing there.

It's simple: He's there to get a pedicure with his daughter. And he's completely unapologetic about it.


Let's be honest. Gender stereotypes are soooo 1955. Why should seeing a dad get a pedicure with his daughter be any weirder than a mom playing baseball with her kid? Or a dad playing with Barbies. Or a mom watching Star Wars with her son. Or a dad doing his daughter's hair.

Spending time with your kid, doing the activities with them that they enjoy?

There's a word for that: parenting.

Watch Doyin take his daughter to the salon (and use the opportunity to challenge her to eat her broccoli too) in this episode of "What Dads Do":

You could share this so it no longer needs to be shared one day. Totally your call.

There is a strange right-wing logic that suggests when minorities fight for equal rights it's somehow a threat to the rights already held by those in the majority or who hold power.

Like when the Black Lives Matter movement started, many on the right claimed that fighting for black people to be treated equally somehow meant that other people's lives were not as valuable, leading to the short-lived All Lives Matter movement.

This same "oppressed majority" logic is behind the new Straight Pride movement which made headlines in August after its march through the streets of Boston.

For most of us, the hypothetical question of whether we would stick with a boyfriend or girlfriend through the trials of cancer and the treatments is just that – a hypothetical question. We would like to think we would do the right thing, but when Max Allegretti got the chance to put his money where mouth is, he didn't hesitate for a second.

Where did we go wrong as a society to make women feel uncomfortable about breastfeeding in public?

No one should feel they have the right to tell a woman when, where, and how she can breastfeed. The stigma should be placed on those who have the nerve to tell a woman feeding her child to "Cover up" or to ask "Where's your modesty?"

Breasts were made to feed babies. Yes, they also have a sexual function but anyone who has the maturity of a sixth grader knows the difference between a sexual act and feeding a child.

The Me Too movement has shed light on just how many actresses have been placed in positions that make them feel uncomfortable. Abuse of power has been all too commonplace. Some actresses have been coerced into doing something that made them uncomfortable because they felt they couldn't say no to the director. And it's not always as flagrant as Louis C.K. masturbating in front of an up-and-coming comedian, or Harvey Weinstein forcing himself on actresses in hotel rooms.

But it's important to remember that you can always firmly put your foot down and say no. While speaking at The Hollywood Reporter's annual Actress Roundtable, Jennifer Lopez opened up about her experiences with a director who behaved inappropriately. Laura Dern, Awkwafina, Scarlett Johansson, Lupita Nyong'o, and Renee Zellweger were also at the roundtable.
