If you’re smart, you’ll keep that in mind and not piss me off.
Clearly, with teenagers in the house, dating happens.
My son is a child, and no child should be tortured with thoughts of you harming yourself. My son is involved in school activities, and cannot be with you 24/7. I am a realist, and when my boys get older and find "the one", I want to have a great relationship with my daughters-in law. For a list of my other posts, please visit my Chicago Now page!
Luttrell is certainly thinking ahead — his daughter is only 2 years old!
Okay, so in part, he’s joking and over-exaggerating.
He asks that anyone who wants to date his daughter should, “Paint the house, mend some fence, cut the lawn, rope a tornado, bottle up a hurricane, and put out a forest fire w/ a squirt gun.” But the heart of his message is a very serious one, and it is, I believe, why the post has become so popular.
At it’s core he’s talking about control: restricting whom his daughter can see based on fear that she’s going to get hurt or make a choice that he doesn’t agree with, a sentiment he wraps in the guise of fatherly love but which is actually disturbing and sexist. First, he says that any boy — and his list assumes that his daughter will want to date a boy when she begins dating, though at the age of 2, it’s far too early to tell her sexual preferences — will have to meet and get the blessing of all of his Navy SEAL teammates while they show him the armory.
There will be no trysts during the school week or after 5 p.m. By the way, National Potato Day and similar culture specific celebrations do not count as special occasions. Therefore, if my son is enjoying spending the day with his brothers, we may not invite you. Oh, and when this happens, please refer to rule #2. Please refrain from using foul language, and dressing like you have a future in the sex industry.
We don't need the short skirt AND the belly bearing top.
I never thought I would have to sit down and come up with a list of rules, but here you go.
Before I start, there are a few things you ought to know.
Luttrell caused a sensation on Facebook by posting a list of requirements that any potential match to his daughter should meet.
