Ah, Twitter didn’t disappoint us tonight. But really, it’s some amazing men who didn’t disappoint us.
Let’s start from the beginning.
Piers Morgan decided this was a good comment to make after seeing a charming photo of Daniel Craig carrying his newborn on his chest. You know….. being a father.
We don’t need to explain the aloofness (read: “idiocy”) of this comment, and why it shows Morgan is either completely out of touch or just a complete jerk (probably the latter).
But, in true form, it brought out the best in many. We took a few liberties below (we couldn’t resist, some were just too good not to put in here). We’re super pleased to see all the men out there who feel even more masculine when they’re being dads. Get ready for some cuteness.

Farmer's walks with 32kg kettlebells & my daughter strapped to my chest. I got a question of my own...— Simon Peter de Veer (@spdeveer) October 15, 2018
Do you even lift bro? pic.twitter.com/5BZX0o5vJa
Ahaha, Piers, you flaccid old dick. I’ve seldom been happier in my life than when walking around with my babies strapped to me. What a loss for you that you’re too much of a man to be a dad. pic.twitter.com/PE6V5OrXBn— Nathan Fairbairn (@nathanfairbairn) October 15, 2018
I also cook, clean, do laundry, tuck the kids in, wash them, readnto them, do homework with them, hold them when they are sad and laugh with them when they joke. I’m not as much of a looker as Daniel Craig, but I’m happy i’m in good company pic.twitter.com/jH7q9A71dw— Jonathan Whitney™ (@digitalArtvark) October 15, 2018
Carrying my son the first 2-3 months not only was the only way to get him to nap while my wife rested, it was the deepest most meaningful bonding time I had with him in those early days. A real man cannot be emasculated by his own actions.— Darren Mitchell (@Darrenkmitchell) October 15, 2018
This is a weird friggin’ thing to brag about, but I’m infinitely more manly than you are. Here are three reasons that I proudly take with me everywhere I go. I’m no James Bond, just a Dad. pic.twitter.com/Sqe6MA5T2y— Scott Baker (@thecachinnator) October 15, 2018
There’s no higher sign of male virility and success than a dad who can spend time with their kid. We should all wish we were that lucky— mike🌵black (@kurtruslfanclub) October 16, 2018
Also, he could floor you in an instant, if that’s worth anything to you (it shouldn’t be, but you’re apparently tweeting from 1801)
Does the level of emasculation increase if you carry more than one kid or if you wear one and push another in a stroller? What happens if we look after our own kids all by outselves? I’m just trying to figure out if there is a scale or point of no return I should be aware of.— ChrisFarleyRatcliffe (@DadGoesRound) October 15, 2018
I took a month off work last year to care for my newborn baby girl. I carried her in a bjorn, and she and I hiked all over California. I don’t find it emasculating to carry my offspring for dozens of miles while we both have fun. You need to check yourself.— joshuahmel (@joshuahmel) October 15, 2018
I’ll carry these 2 until I am no longer able. pic.twitter.com/n4r3ON1lX5— Enrique R. Lopez (@EnriqueRLopez) October 16, 2018
Good thing no one says, “Piers Morgan, now that’s a man’s man.” pic.twitter.com/qEQCPrEESo— Joe Perez (@JoePerezSports) October 16, 2018
Don't suppose you've thought about the fact that it may be a) more practical than a pram, while b) still being able to see the baby and c) replicates that closeness you get from say, laying with the baby on your chest when you're on the sofa. Get over yourself! #papoose— Paul Williams (@williams_pd) October 15, 2018
Imagine when, as a man, your view of fatherhood or manhood doesn't include carrying your child. That baby-wearing emasculates a man. That wearing a child against your chest makes you less of a man.— John Lam (@AnxiousPenman) October 15, 2018
Imagine what kind of "man" it takes to believe that.
Masculine men take responsibility for the life they helped create. It's beautiful bonding you a$$.— banana!SAM 🍌 (@the_endverse) October 15, 2018
Proud to wear my kid all day every day. If you’re not secure enough in your masculinity to wear your kid, well... there’s something wrong with your idea of what it is to be a man.— Ron Robinson Jr (@ronrobinsonjr) October 15, 2018
Piers Morgan should challenge Daniel Craig to a fist fight to see who is more masculine. All proceeds go to charity.— Eric Rosswood (@LGBT_Activist) October 15, 2018
You really wanna talk emasculating lifts? pic.twitter.com/SIUCDcjqVu— mike mulloy (@fakemikemulloy) October 15, 2018
Yeah but that last one…….!
We had to stop scrolling (so good, seriously go look at the comment stream… and a few R-rated comments we couldn’t include!), and we won’t even get started on Morgan’s responses to the backlash (a decided lack of class… he tried to walk back his comment by saying it was about the papoose looking unmanly – not much better of an argument), but if you see any more great responses, let us know!
