Photo of dad doing daughter's hair goes viral

Doyin Richards posted a photo of himself with his two daughters on his Daddy Doin' Work blog and it has gone viral.

He explained that one day while he was home on paternity leave with his younger daughter, his wife was running late for work so he did his other daughter's hair. The post is titled, "I Have a Dream: That People Will View a Picture Like This and Not Think It's a Big Deal."

While the image has received an overwhelmingly positive response on Facebook, there have also been less than friendly comments such as "He probably rented those kids. They don't even look like him."

Richards says he understands that the photo stirs emotions, but in response he wrote, "Memo to the small pocket of male haters I have: Why don't you put big boy shorts on and get in on the revolution of good fathers?
