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!
I have two beautiful and intelligent daughters, and eventually a boy smart enough to see it was going to come calling. My daughter and her boyfriend spend almost every free moment they have in our house.
Rule 1 : If you pull into my driveway and honk, you better be delivering a package because you're sure not picking anything up.I would like to offer a couple of thoughts in this regard. I have a passion for my family and have learned a few things along the way.In our case, when Brittany was young, we wanted to instill a modest dressing policy. 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.Please don't take this as an insult, but you & your friends are complete idiots, if you show up at my house like this I will force you to leave.
