New duds for gay dads
Two things you’re pretty much guaranteed to spot on an afternoon stroll through the Castro: gay fathers with kids in tow, and gay boutiques displaying novelty t-shirts that should never be worn around the little ones.
What self-respecting gay father wants to provoke questions like “Papa, what does ’It’s Not Going to Suck Itself’ mean?” or “Daddy, what’s a ‘Three Beer Queer’”?
Enter East Bay graphic designer and stay-at-home father of two Josh Beatty, whose new line of 24-7 Baby-Daddy tees, offers a more child-appropriate approach to gag shirts (‘No Gag Reflex’ is not amongst this collection). Beatty says his shirts are for all the men who are shrugging off Mr. Mom stigmas, “from the 24-7 Baby Daddy that has just discovered he can fall in love with a baby, to the 24-7 Big Kid Daddy who’s running around and playing almost as much as his active squirts.” (There may be a crossover shirt that somehow incorporates the words “active squirts”).
