On second thought , I will address this — loaded — honor killing “question”.
Never mind the father, I would rather put myself in the daughters shoes a minute.
First thing I notice, as the daughter , is that twice some guy suggested that you frame the question in HER context , according to HER circumstances.
And, so far, you have refused to do that.
Opting, instead , to insert a third party context and circumstances which may have little , or nothing at all , to do with her.
As her, then , I might be inclined to doubt that your expressed concern for me and my life is genuine.
As HER , that is precisely the problem.
Do you work , sacrifice, make compromises , for free ? For nothing ? Without a point ?
^ It sure doesn’t seem so .
What better alternative do you have to offer against what she has ?
Oh, yes, you would save her life.
— And as you have barged into her context and circumstances like a bull in a china shop, not bothering yourself with what that context might be, what those circumstances might be, hardly honoring any of it, not honoring her , it is very likely you might leave her life worse off than it was before .
Ok, so you will give her a better life ?
Great ! WHEN ? !
First thing tomorrow morning ? Next week ? Next month ? Next year ?
The meter is running. Life is short , you know ?
But then everybody knows that life is nasty, brutish , and short , except maybe for atheists, who dwell in Candy Land in the present , never mind an afterlife.
No, frankly, as her , I really don’t get the impression that you give a darn about me at all.
Anyway, since as her, you haven’t convinced even me, I figure there is a snowballs chance in Hell that you will convince my father of anything. More like you will insult him more than you have insulted me.
It comes as no surprise to me that , more often than not lately , when persons like this daughter are given a vote, they vote against the nothing you offer.
Even if that means burkas and honor killings.
