To the Boys Who May One Day Date My Daughter - Video
This is awesome
Am I the only one who thinks that this is fucking creepy? I mean, I guess good on you for making your possessive, aggressive bullshit non-heteronormative, but it’s still creepy, possessive, aggressive bullshit.
Eh. “I’ve been teaching her love all her life and all I ask is that you continue the lesson” is the crux of this to me. Not “never hurt her”, not “don’t touch her.” Show her love. He’s not being possessive of his daughter, he accepts that she may one day want to date someone. He just wants that person to treat her well. Hell, I’d say the same to someone who wanted to date my best friend. That’s the whole origin of the shovel speech. Not because I own them but because their happiness is important to me.
