Is it creepy for daughters to bathe with their dads?

Apparently, some do it even in high school!

I'm not going to make a judgement call on different culture. Especially one that has a different perception of sexuality.

It's not uncommon for families to bathe together in springs, there, either.

Not at first. You wanna make sure your kids don't drown themselves somehow and while you're there you may as well take a bath too. Your kids probably aren't experts at cleaning themselves either.

When they are tots, no seeing that somebody needs to bathe them and to ensure them that when they get older, they can bathe themselves. At that age, they are quite clueless about everything and somebody needs to teach them the importance of showering and bathing. But when they get older, definitely and is certainly sexual harassment if the daughter objects to it as expected. It's all about thinking from a practical standpoint since this is just going to be something they need to learn. As long as the father doesn't do anything other than what needs to be done, then it's fine. Not ideal, but it won't be traumatizing to someone that young.

I've bathed my daughter many times.... but it was never necessary to bathe WITH her.

To me never. Why? Because is just a bath Jesus people. Stop making everything sexual.

No. This is a normal thing in many other cultures/countries. They are just bathing together. I am half Finnish and it is normal in Finland for entire families to sit together naked in saunas. In fact, it is just a normal thing in Finland to sit in any sauna totally naked - even with strangers. Don't believe me, here is a link for more information. Saunas are a big thing in Finland!

Where nakedness seems to be a big issue is primarily in North America. It's like we feel the need to associate all forms of nakedness with either sex or something simply inappropriate (like daddy is bathing with his daughter - he must be a closet pedophile).

Sometimes I think everyone should just be walking around without clothes on so we can all get over ourselves and our stupid obsession about how nakedness is somehow wrong or inappropriate or something to be ashamed of or be embarrassed about or something you only do if you are looking to be sexual. Really, we are all just a collection of various cells stuck together in various ways that function together as a whole (as tissues and organs) so we can live. The stuff we get all fussed about is just skin - that superficial collection of stratified squamous epithelial cells that covers our exterior.

Just curious, but does anyone think it's weird if a mom bathes with her son or can this weirdness only be applied to when a dad bathes with his daughter?

Not exactly sure, but there was this Tiger & Bunny episode when Kotetsu's daughter didn't want her dad in the bathroom with her.

To each their own if the daughter is ok with it and the father isn't a incestuous pervert than it's only an issue if you make it an issue.
