In which you've got textbook daddy issues and when your tool of a younger brother brings a sweet doe eyed girlfriend home for Thanksgiving and you end up offering her a ride home, you meet just the man to fix them.

A quick rant on "daddy issues"
Ok so in my technical writing class we were talking about language today, specifically idioms, colloquialisms, and other words/phrases that can't be directly translated from English to another language without confusion or offense (ex: “bite the bullet”). We do one general exercise, and then one exercise targeting language that might appear in a business/professional setting.
During the broad exercise, I got a lot of good responses, but I found it interesting that the women in the class nearly all chose gender or sex related language like “wife beater” (referring to a undershirt or tanktop), “make an honest woman of her,” “man up,” “grow a pair,” etc.
And one girl says, “I really dislike the phrase ‘daddy issues’ and the way my boyfriend’s friends have used it, like: love a girl with daddy issues, but I’m not sure how to explain why I dislike it so much. Do have any thoughts about that?”
And I was like. Oh boy. Shall we discuss this? And the class was like yes. Because they love a good tangent.
And I’m still sort of heated about it, hours later, so now I’m sharing it.
Here’s my problem with men who use “daddy issues” when indicating appreciation. Using this phrase has several implications:
1. They recognize the fact that when a father neglects or otherwise traumatizes their daughter, this creates psychological problems for the adult woman that child becomes.
2. They simultaneously recognize that fathers neglecting or traumatizing their daughters is prevalent enough that there is an incredibly well-known and well-used colloquial phrase referencing this behavior.
3. They—fully cognizant of 1 and 2—are planning to capitalize on the neglect or abuse perpetrated by other men in order to enjoy sexual gratification.
Tl;dr the reason you hate the phrase “daddy issues” when used in that context is because the man is essentially saying, “I love that some other man mistreated this woman as a child so I can now use her trauma for my own benefit.”
And frankly that says a whole lot more about the man using the phrase “daddy issues” then it does the girl he’s talking about.
