When Captain America comes to the aid of James Bond…

The day before yesterday (or yonderday as I’d like to call it because why, English, why), British supervillain extraordinaire Piers Morgan, armed with supreme stupidity, verbose bigotry and lots of poop to fling tweeted a pic of Daniel Craig doing one of those normal thing people do like taking the baby for a walk to play Pokémon Go. OK, I made up the Pokémon part, but apparently, an image of a dad doing dad things was really too much for poor Piers.

Oh 007.. (sic) not you as well?!!! #papoose #emasculatedBond

The tweet got picked up by Chris Captain America Evans who rightfully called out Morgan for his attempt to literally shame a man into not caring for his child.

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.

And for once, go read the replies which are full of dads posting pics of them carrying their kids.

    The responses all over that thread are so perfect. ♥
    (I do have a bit of a crush on Chris Evans, even though he is not my usual type.)

    * #1 Charly He’s a morning show host who I firmly believe is kept around purely for the spectacle, as one might a life-like diorama of a gory road accident.

    Piers Morgan is an ass. A comedian guesting on Pier’s morning show today gave him a pie in the face this morning on behalf of all papoose wearing dads. Piers’ response was to turn around and pie-in-the-face his female co-host who had simply asked if he was alright. The guesting comedian apologized to the co-host, but Piers had no response.

    The hallmark of a very masculine man is to react to a perceived or real wrong by another man by taking it out on a woman.
    Though, given that they made the pies just before that, it seemed staged. What would have been perfect would have been if the comedian, when asked by Morgan if comedy wasn’t hard these days because everybody got offended so easily, to reply “yes, you wouldn’t believe what people get offended about. Just a few days ago a guy completely freaked out when he saw a pic of a guy carrying his baby in a papoose.”
