Completing the circle

Via Instapundit is a tale of modern parenting in which the mother of a 13 year old girl is unwilling to let her daughter sleep over at another 13 year old girl’s house because there is a father in that house.

Isn’t this how shari’a style law gets started? Once you accept the notion that males are incorrigible sexual predators, burkas, veils, gender segregation, and permanent escorts for females would seem to follow.

On the other hand, it’s a good thing the concerned parent apparently hasn’t read The Vagina Monologues or she’d be worried about the mother as well.

But hey, it’s all liberating, right?

Certainly at least some “males are incorrigible sexual predators” and no doubt some of the shari’a style law provisions would reduce the amount of unwanted sex and molestation. The only question is at what point the cure is worse than the disease. From things like the Oregon butt slapping case, it seems that to some people any unwanted touching is so horrible that you might as well bring down western civilization rather than risk having it occur. That’s the attitude that enables shari’a style law to get started. I would hope girls and women are a little more resilient than that, but maybe not.

I suppose it is possible that the mother is lost in some uber-feminist fantasy world of uncontrolled lavicious males. It is also possible the father in question hit on her, made her daughter feel uncomfortable in some way or drinks too much and that the mother is trying to deal with it without getting personal.

“I don’t trust your husband” is still rather personal, no?

And yet, I can’t help but wonder about men who design their life so as to put them in constant contact with children.

You mean by becoming a father? I think we’re rather stuck with that.
