if my daughter wanted to date a muslim boy

Posted by Anonymous   + Show Post

(she is 16)

I would not be happy! And I would probably do anything I could to stop her. 

Would you be happy if your child dated a muslim?

Edited: It has nothing at all to do with the color of his skin!

Of course. But in America it is not the cultural norm to treat women like slaves, beat them, stone them, rape them.

In Afghanistan, and many other Muslim countries, it is.

That is why you see all these Muslim women in this thread saying the mistreatment of women isn't religious, it's cultural. I DID specify that an American born Muslim would be ok.

I do not want my daughter marrying a man from a Muslim country.

The end.

Quoting scarletmeshell:

 Did you say anything about seeing it when walking down the street? No you didn't. Do you understand there are good and bad people in every country?


Quoting Anonymous:

Oh? You walk down the street and see this happening? What part of America do you live in?




Quoting scarletmeshell:


 Do you realize those same things happen here by American men?



 



Quoting Anonymous:

I hope she doesn't. I would not be happy. Well, I think an American born Muslim would be ok. I don't have an issue with the religion, per say, it's the cultural differences of many Muslim countries. I would probably die if she chose to marry an afghan man. Friends who have been there have told me about them. Raping little boys, beating women, shitting wherever they please, sexual relations with animals.


I want no part in that.

I can imagine.

What do you do, if I may ask.

Quoting Val99:

Thank you.  My husband is starting to get nervous about me going.  I'll have a security detail with me 24/7 though and I'll only be there for a month.  It is a little worrisome beause I will have an apartment there, and soft targets are actually prime targets right now.


Quoting Anonymous:

Good luck!

There was a man in my company who was born and raised in Afghanistan.  He was a caring and thoughtful husband and father.  I hoped my daughter would find someone as nice as he was.


I fly out to Afghanistan myself in May.  I can't wait to learn more about their culture.   I know three Americans who live there full time, and the stories they tell about what the American serviceman have done there is horrendous.  I will be attached to NATO forces, so hopefully the residents don't judge me based on what Americans have done there.

That's not what my fully Muslim ex said.

Quoting -spork2.0-:

5 percenters and ANY relation to NOI are not real Muslims and it is offensive to real Muslims to try to say they are.



Quoting cmorris0217:

It's called 5 percenters. Google it.





Quoting -spork2.0-:

Lmmfao. You cant be a percentage of Muslim. Its all or nothing.







Quoting cmorris0217:

SO is 5% Muslim and I grew up in a catholic home.

Not always. are you really that ignorant?

Quoting Anonymous:

I agree with you because those women are treated so inferior to the men.

As long as the other person loved my dd/ds and treated them and our family with respect they could be from Neptune and worship the banana slug for all I care.

I will be happy for my children if they are happy. I would be sad for my children if they were unhappy. Religion, race, culture has nothing to do with any of it. I will never sabotage any relationship my children have because it is not my place. I hope that the people they love are good people with healthy families.

So being a Muslim, automatically makes you a bad person? As long as that person treated my child well, it does not matter what religion they are. There are good people and bad people in all religions and ways of life.
