This kind of attitude directly descends from medieval concepts that a woman is a man’s property, to be passed from dad to husband, with no autonomy of her own.Even if Luttrell is half-joking, this isn’t funny, and the fact that it’s been passed around so many times proves his sentiments resonate with many parents. We all want the best for our children, and letting them go off into the world and make decisions on their own — decisions which might hurt them, or cause us discomfort— can be a frightening prospect. We’ll keep you safe.” The thing is, we don’t always know what’s right, and we can’t always keep them safe.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.
Military is the first and best military dating site to provide military dating service for military singles and admirers in the world!The post has been shared about 4,900 times and “liked” by over 39,000 people.Luttrell is certainly thinking ahead — his daughter is only 2 years old!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.In other words, Luttrell literally has an army at the ready to defend his daughter!
