I’m One Of The Coolest Dads On The Internet??

Today I found out that I was listed in the Top Five Coolest Dads on the Internet by People Magazine!  They ranked me number 3!

Here is what they wrote:

When Evan Dolive, a reverend from Houston heard about Victoria’s Secret’s Bright Young Things collection, he wasn’t exactly running to the mall. Based on observations of the collection – which ranged from polka-dotted hipsters screen-printed with the phrase “Feeling Lucky?” to thongs emblazoned with the words “Call me” on the front – he was worried the iconically sexy retailer was targeting middle school-aged girls. And so he thought of his daughter, a 3-year-old who loves princesses, peanut butter and jelly and drawing pictures for people.

“I want my daughter (and every girl) to be faced with tough decisions in her formative years of adolescence,” he wrote in a March letter on his blog. “Decisions like should I be a doctor or a lawyer? Should I take calculus as a junior or a senior? … I want my daughter to know that she is perfect the way she is; I want my daughter to know that no matter what underwear she is wearing, it does not define her.” –Written by Alison Schwartz on people.com

I am honored to be selected for this list.  As I have said many times before (and will say many times again), I never thought that my letter to Victoria’s Secret would ever garner this much attention.

Thanks to everyone for reading and supporting me on this journey!

A BIG THANK YOU TO PEOPLE.COM AND THE AUTHOR ALISON SCHWARTZ!

A Letter to Victoria’s Secret- Update Part IV

On Saturday March 30,  an interview that I recorded  was shown on Headline News; this was my first national interview.  Click here to watch it.

Yesterday was my interview with CNN with Don Lemon.  As of right now I do not have a video link to share.  I have inquired about an online video but so far nothing yet.  I do have a transcript  of the interview.  Click here to read it.  Be sure to check out the pictures of my interviews below.

Thank you for all that you have done to support me in this endeavor.  Please continue to share my letter and my updates.  I want the conversation about the unattainable standard of sexuality and beauty that Victoria’s Secret and others are setting for our young people to continue.  I believe that this is vital conversation that needs to happen in the public sector.

Thank you for your “likes”, comments, shares and questions.

I am truly humbled by it all.

In Christ,

Rev. Evan
