This message needs to be spread. I am glad that Nicole had the courage to speak out.
I hope her message is told to vulnerable high school girls from ages 12 to 18.

This is why I'll never let my daughters go anywhere with a male until he pays me a bride price of 30 bags of coffee. Also why I'll teach her how to shoot guns once she turns 3 and enroll her in martial arts. Also why I'll be sure to give my children an opportunity to make money. Nobody likes to be broke; if they can't get money in a legit way, they'll resort to unspeakable ways.

It is more important to set an example of a virtuous life for your ckildren, particularly faith, hope, charity, temperance, and chastity. I took Karate lessons, and some of the adults and children did not set good examples.

That's one of the reasons virginity until marriage is so important to me and my potential future wife. No child is going to listen to their parents about sex if they were fornicators in the past. Not even I would. That's hypocrisy. Setting a good example now, even in single life, is important to me so that my Jamesian offspring can't accuse me of hypocrisy.

Because no one makes mistakes? Like you, I'm a product of pre-marital sex - does that mean I can't listen to my parents about morality because they sinned in the past?

In my case, yes; I wouldn't listen to them.

Their morality advice isn't very Christian--probably due to them fornicating and having me. They told me that fornication isn't really a big deal and that God will just forgive me. I'm all alone in staying virginal.

Are women really that cheap and worthless to you?  At least in the old country dowries involve gold, lands, property, etc.  Would you really sell off your daughter for three hundred dollars worth of Dunkin Donuts original roast?

Please note.


That goes for 6.99.  The Dunken is 8.99


That makes your (thankfully) not yet conceived daughter worth 210 dollars.


Please print this out and save it for her 18th birthday so she can then kick her no-good father somewhere deserving.

Coffee is the way to a man's heart; along with General Original snus. Well, at least to my heart. Give me a woman who can prepare fine coffee, uses tobacco, is blonde and Orthodox, and I'll treat her like a queen.

uses tobacco

Tobacco makes your breath smelly. Not something one would appreciate in a woman.

All these stories have only furthered strengthened my semi-serious, somewhat exploitive idea of just waltzing into an impoverished Orthodox country and having like 10 Orthodox fathers offering to give me their daughters in marriage, then choosing the most pious (and attractive) one.

Perhaps Egypt. I hear size matters. My wrist tattoo is larger than most. The Coptic women will go mad in a love drunk frenzy once I unveil it.

The thing is, I just can't do the have-children/treat-me-like-a-queen Godly family religious woman thing. I find such things detestable. At least an atheist girl won't want children and isn't as emotional and clingy.



then

Genuine honestly slightly exaggerated. I don't ever want children, so if a particular hobby can increase my chances of not having them, I'm all for it. But I wouldn't go out explicitly trying to make myself infertile.



It's fine at your age to not know what the heck it is you want.

but until you do....perhaps you should learn to not BS back and forth on it every time you feel like getting a rise out of people.....it just makes you look foolish

This is why I'll never let my daughters go anywhere with a male until he pays me a bride price of 30 bags of coffee.

Are women really that cheap and worthless to you?  At least in the old country dowries involve gold, lands, property, etc.  Would you really sell off your daughter for three hundred dollars worth of Dunkin Donuts original roast? 

How many goats are YOU worth? Tongue

10. And I got compared to George Clooney. I call that a win.

In all seriousness though, I hope they'll be able to do something about the trafficking. Lord have mercy!

No, i really don't. Wink

There are plenty of reservations where you live. Buy tobacco down there. I don't have any relatives that grow tobacco. I could send you smoked fish, but I don't think you will want to actually smoke that.

That was actually a compliment. Regardless of how much I enjoy irritating you, and how repulsed you are at me, you're one of the more goat-worthy females around this place.

Our daughter would fetch 9 goats apparently.

Any boy that wants to date our daughters will have to deal with:

1) Going on a long hike alone in the woods with Dad.
2) Deal with the fact that our daughters are proficient at throwing knives and screwdrivers at targets.
3) Make it thru 5 other siblings that might possibly hate you.

True story:

One night Ari woke in the middle of the night and declared "I need to cuddle with Darth Vader!" Her sister handed her a stuffed Pinkie Pie, Ari threw it on the floor in disgust because it wasn't Darth Vader. Then she found her large, stuffed Darth Vader, cuddled up to him, and fell back asleep. She has loved Darth Vader since she was 6 months old. We have zero idea why she loves him so. All she can say is "he's cute."

All three of our daughters are pretty awesome. I never thought that I would dig having daughters this much. Smiley

We are seriously puzzled by her love of Darth Vader. Her older sister loved baby dolls from around 6 months of age. That isn't as strange loving Darth Vader. She loves little girl things like My Little Pony too. She likes to say that she is Leia, and her dad is Darth Vader. My husband balked at the idea for awhile. He grew up watching and loving Star Wars, and he never rooted for the Empire. Now he goes with the flow. The few shirts he owns that aren't solid/plain have AT-AT's and Darth Vader on them in honor of our eldest son and youngest daughter.

She is about 2 in this photo:

This forum has all content available to the general public. Most forums I participate in require people to be logged in if they want to see photos. I am fine with everyone at OCnet seeing photos, I am not fine with everyone on the worldwide web seeing them. When you do an internet search for my children's real first names, this forum is one of the few pages that pop up. Our little Darth Vader fan has exactly two internet postings with her name on them. One is the battalion newsletter from my husband's deployment, one is a post from when I was figuring out what to name her.

I actually check the internet presence of myself, and all our children every couple months. So I am aware of what is out there, and I am also aware of what can be done. My husband worked extensively in that field the entire time he was in the military. I go thru and remove all our info from sites every few months.

I want our kids to reach 18 without an internet presence. There are ways to keep google robots from snagging photos too Wink

Ladies(Arachne), I'm single.

I'm off the market, but just watching you and James duke it out would be worth at least three billy goats gruff. Tongue

Lord have mercy.
I think I'd win, but let's put that one to rest.

EDIT: We Copts is some tough people to kill. If I had a dollar for every time the "Lord/angel of the Lord healed him/her from all his/her wounds" or "Then the governor grew weary of torturing him/her/them" in our Synaxarium, I could bail out the USA deficit.

As an added bonus, if they want to marry our youngest daughter they would have to deal with a girl that is literally obsessed with Darth Vader.

How young are we talking about here? (The Darth Vader thing sounds like a bonus to me)

She's almost 5. Smiley

Oh. Well, that explains the Darth Vader obsession.

If only I could find that quality in a woman of more suitable age...

Hooked on Star Wars, where else?

The subject matter in the OP is too much for some folks.

You and me both.  My girlfriend probably couldn't tell the difference between Han Solo and Hans Ulrich Rudel.

Sounds like you need to add some roleplay to your life, my friend.

I had a teacher once, who worked in India as a young woman. Once, while walking down the street with two male companions (they wouldn't let her walk the Streets alone) they came across a rich fellow, who offered to buy her for three elephants.


WOW!  That must have been some fabulous teacher!

I have worked as a waitress, a financial auditor, a computer programmer -  but never as a young woman.   What does a person working as a young woman have to do?

Love, elephant

I think telling her that I'll be Rudel and she can be the Stuka would probably bomb.  Dive bomb.
