"Dad Bod" — the internet phenomenon that just won't quit — got us thinking: One squishy Dad Bod archetype does not fit all. Do you have to be a parent to possess a Dad Bod? Are there niches of Dad Bods? And how do we bring those bods' struggles to light?
We are living through a golden age of Dad Bods. So much variety. And all are worth noting in hopes of promoting inclusivity in our discussions of Dad Bod.
- Baby DaddyBod
- Dadrock DadBod
- Cool DadBod
- Deadbeat DadBod
- Father Figure (priests)
- Mase DadBod ("Welcome back" your old pre-Dad Bod body)
- DadBod Longlegs
- Sugar DaddyBod
- Puff DadBod
- Big Poppa-Bod
- Soledadbod O'Brien
- GLADbod ('cause your body's trash)
- DadBob Saget
- Mrs. DoubtBod
- Daddity KaneBod
- Cherry Poppin' DadBods (this made us uncomfortable, too)
…Or we could just keep celebrating mom bods…
