Time for some Muslim "honor killing" horror...

By Cracked of all people. That last paragraph is a downer. And I'm serious about that! Even the commentators are freaking out over it.


And I can not blame them.

Read that the other day. Terrifying. Family dinners must be especially awkward when your own parents are stalkers that want to kill you. I used to think that animals that ate their young were sick and twisted, but heck, they're just hungry. Parents who have an itchy stabbing finger every time they see their daughter near a boy without their approval, now that's a truly demented type of evil.

The article made it sound like she talked about her fears that her parents were after her to lots of people, and then she disappears after going fully public. That's the stuff of horror movies.
Such potential!

Not evil, a commonplace. They would think you evil.

Point is that a multicultural POV that accepts all other POVs as "legitimate" wallows in a moral morass. Sometimes you have to say "I'm right, you're wrong and I really don't give a rats ass about your rationale".

True enough. I wonder if that point of view has as many proponents as you think.
"If fighting is sure to result in victory, then you must fight! Sun Tzu said that, and I'd say he knows a little bit more about fighting than you do, pal, because he invented it, and then he perfected it so that no living man could best him in the ring of honor. Then, he used his fight money to buy two of every animal on earth, and then he herded them onto a boat, and then he beat the crap out of every single one. And from that day forward any time a bunch of animals are together in one place it's called a zoo! (Beat) Unless it's a farm!"

Thing is I'd say it regarding a handful of basic human rights issues: speech, right of assembly, marriage, big stuff. On a college campus that importance is given to things with wobbly importance: microagressions and the like. Yeah, I think that social justice warriors would agree with what I am saying they would just co-opt it to cover their banal issues.
