nonwhite, non-cishet dads (boost to find dads) 

thrilled with the influx of new users dads.cool has had over the last week since we moved to a new server and added local-only posting. However, there’s not the level of diversity in our ranks that I’d hope for.

If you know a dad who is a person of color and/or is non-het/has a non-cis male gender identity, my DMs are open for invites! Enjoy a helpful and friendly local for privately discussing parenting.

PS: Moms can be dads

Baby slept for 6 straight hours last night! What luxury!

If Thanos’ concern is depletion of resources, why doesn't he use his power glove to create more resources instead of killing half the population?

I’m enjoying They Might Be Giants’ kids albums, even if our week-old daughter doesn’t care either way.
