A Reddit post went viral after a father shared how he knew how his daughter had been living a “fairly rich life” at the age of 25.
Redditor u/scaitai882 wrote about the situation on the “Am I The A*s**le” subreddit in a post that has been voted on more than 10,000 times.
The father writes that when the family asks his daughter about her income, he explains that she is investing, even though he “knows” that this is only half of her income.
“She does nothing but fans, Twitter and PH,” he wrote. “I am aware of this because [I] One man in his forties will admit he has needs, and [I] [recognized] As it is immediately. I clicked on a Twitter profile and her face was the profile picture. I blocked it, and I jotted down the names with that [I] no[sic] I’ve come across them anywhere else and felt kind of weird to myself, but [I] did not[sic] Bring it to her.”
The Redditor also said he kept this knowledge a secret for a year until recently when his daughter revealed to her family how she really makes her money.
In a 2018 survey, Gallup found that 43 percent of Americans think pornography is “morally acceptable,” a 7 percent increase from the previous year and the highest level since Gallup first began measuring moral perceptions of pornography in 2011. In The next two years this figure decreased, and in 2021 the figure jumped to 40 percent.
OnlyFans, which has become increasingly popular during the pandemic, is a site for “artists and content creators of all kinds” that “allows them to monetize their content while developing real relationships with their fan base,” according to the company’s website. Content creators can upload their own content for users to access for a fee and it can vary from photography, creative writing or recipes. However, the platform has become particularly popular among sex workers, NEWSWEEK reported in 2020.
After his daughter revealed the truth, the Redditor said he told her he respected her choice “as long as she’s safe and knows she’s okay with this staying online forever.”
“You really annoyed me and told me [I] should not be[sic] That watching these kinds of things and I[sic] Disgusting, despicable, etc.[sic] She’s talked to me ever since and I’m so disgusted with it, but is it really that bad that I never told her? ‘ asked the Redditor.
Several commentators supported him, and some called his daughter a hypocrite for her reaction.
One commenter wrote: “And let NTA make sure I understand her calling you disgusting and despicable for – checking notes – seeing self-produced porn. Your daughter is a hypocrite.”
However, others have concluded that part of her reaction may have been because the Redditor didn’t make it clear that he blocked her once he found out.
One commenter wrote: “NTA. You disrespected your daughter by blocking her as soon as she was recognized. She is hypocritical with the name calling her but probably assuming you saw her content.”
“…OP is an NTA, but I think the daughter misinterpreted what he was saying. Her reaction makes it sound as if her father has been watching her content for a year and not telling her what the opposite of what happened.. said another.
A commenter saw the daughter’s point of view and said that while the Redditor isn’t the “AH” to give her time to come in.
“NTA – but her response is understandable. Understand. Give her some time and when she’s ready to talk to you about it, tell her you made sure you never watched it. Then just support her. Although it may take a while,” one more sympathetic commenter shared.
