The community of dads on social media should never be underestimated. The decision to keep a child close to our hearts should never be second-guessed.
That’s what British TV host Piers Morgan found out earlier this week, when he was promptly put in his place by flocks of fired-up Twitter fathers with fast fingers.
Morgan, a former judge of America’s Got Talent and a media personality was the source of a Twitter kerfuffle on Monday afternoon. He tweeted a photo of actor Daniel Craig sporting a baby-carrier to wear his infant daughter on his chest.
His choice in hashtags is what made the skyfall.

But enough about Morgan, let’s focus on a small sample of the legions of dads who had Bond’s back.
Justin Bingham laid out some simple rules:
There are a few simple rules with children. If a 4 year old hands you a plastic toy phone, you answer it. If you’re invited to a tea party in a princess castle, you attend it. If you make a child, and are a good father, you carry them to the end of the earth and back. #nuffsaid

Then Captain America went on defence for double-o:
You really have to be so uncertain of your own masculinity to concern yourself with how another man carries his child. Any man who wastes time quantifying masculinity is terrified on the inside. https://t.co/9jsHZ3WKRn

Sebastian Lanlois doubled down with some baby-wearing and a little house work:

Nic Curry put the lie to the emasculation crack:
Thank you Daniel Craig for making me feel cooler about baby-carrying…
Actually, baby-carrying was always cool and masculine.

And former WWE wrestler Adam (Edge) Copeland went even further:
This is me wearing an Elsa dress after Lyric asked me to wear her Mom’s Halloween costume. I look ridiculous. But who cares? That’s what you do for your kids. I’m sure @piersmorgan would find this emasculating. I say only if you’re uncomfortable in your masculinity. pic.twitter.com/kDOvnw4pz2

Dads of Twitter, we salute you.
