Lindsie Chrisley's Strong Words For Girl Dads Has Fans Talking

Former Chrisley Knows Best star and podcaster Lindsie Chrisley's latest social media post has fans buzzing. The "Coffee Convos" host shared a photo of herself and her son Jackson to both her Twitter and Instagram accounts, accompanied by the caption: "As a boy mom, I hate when a dad of daughters says, 'I can't wait to pull a shotgun on my daughters boyfriend.' .F.Y.I — My son comes home & tells me you pulled a gun on him && I'm burning your house down, Jeffrey."

"Girl dads don't stand a chance against boy moms. PERIOD," one fan wrote. Another pointed out the double standard of comments like the one Chrisley referenced, writing: "What kind of a jack*** says that about their daughters boyfriend? I have 2 girls and 2 boys. All of them had better be respectful to the parents of anyone they are dating. It must be a pretty small minded adult that would pull a gun on his daughters boyfriend just to get a laugh."

Chrisley may be a girl mom soon

Jokes aside, it's been pointed out that comments like the one Chrisley referenced can actually be harmful to girls themselves. For example, a 2012 Forbes article about how to set up your daughter for a successful future suggested making sure your daughter spends time around both boys and girls from an early age.

In 2018, The New Yorker took a more humorous approach with an article titled "If You Ever Hurt My Daughter, I Swear to God I'll Let Her Navigate Her Own Emotional Growth." As the article noted, it "infantilize[s]" girls to imply that they need a man to jump in to save them in situations they're capable of managing on their own.

As for Chrisley, it's looking like she may be a girl mom in the near future. As US Weekly reported in June 2020, the former reality star said she and her husband Will Campbell are ready to try for a second child. Chrisley also shared that not one but two mediums have told her that "[her] next child is a girl."
