That's not as bad as the straight Victorian level shiat one of my friends pulled on me earlier this week. I've been trying to find a way to diplomatically tell her that she's a damn fool and if she keeps acting like this she's going to hate herself and her husband in a few years. And she's nearly 10 years older than the girl in the link.

This is going to be a little vague. I have no reason to believe either her or her fiancee read this site, but no reason to risk it.

There's an absurdly big Christmas store down here, and my decoration collection is pretty small. We were talking about decorating for Christmas (and I should note here this woman is Church of Christ and yes she's a good friend of mine) and I mentioned that I wanted to head over there later in the week and invited her along. That morning I get a text that basically says she can't go because it would be "disrespectful" to her fiance to be around another guy without apparently him around. I more or less said 'what in the fark are you talking about' and I got back that she wants to be some kind of perfect fiance and ever be alone with a guy in any situation.

Like I said, I swear this text exchange came from farking Victorian England. And I'm pissed off because I read between the lines that she's afraid I'd try something which I think is incredibly insulting. I don't particularly want to tell her off on those terms, but I can't think of how to possibly say tactfully that you're insane and I'm incredibly insulted.

She said she views immodest dress as showing cleavage, showing one's midriff or one's shoulders. Immodesty also includes shorts, dresses, pants and skirts that are too short or tight

Temperatures are mostly in the 90s and low 100s in South Pasadena in September and sometimes part of October...I doubt that she'll convince most girls to stop wearing shorts and tank tops during the first few weeks of the school year.

I feel really terrible for both of these kids. Their dad wrote a book called "Raising a G Rated Kid in an X Rated World". I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that he's an authoritarian douchebag who's doing his level best to raise one miniature version of himself, and one subserviant girl who will grow up to be an obedient wife to another version of himself.

All I can really hope for these kids is that they get enough distance to think through these ideas themselves eventually. If they willfully choose to be like this as adults... well, more power to them I guess. But I tend to think these households are not actually very happy ones.

I wondered if the dude wrote that but it sounded like her. By the way, in case anyone is wondering, yes I'm aware this whole thing is absurd and stupid and more than a little high school. I've just never tactfully learned how to try to tell someone they are ruining their own life by wrapping themselves up in a cocoon that 10 years from now they're going to hate themselves for.

Elandriel: Oh. I can't help but wonder if it's not you she's worried about as much as herself.


Hell if I know. There is some subtext that if I chose to read it that way that could mean that. It's also the most logical outcome that a woman who wants to throw herself at me is engaged because that's just my life.

Anyway, didn't mean to jack a now green thread with incredibly mundane and stupid shiat.

I don't think that's an unreasonable response. A few years ago my wife caught flack from a coworker because she was met by a male friend for lunch. She was told it was 'inappropriate to be with another man unaccompanied' when she was engaged to me. She was so surprised by this confrontation that she couldn't really formulate an appropriate response beyond "I'm sorry, are you serious?"

I think I was more pissed off than she was. It's insulting to everyone involved.

Seriously, it implies a total lack of self-control and self-respect, that somehow you are now completely evaluated by how you are attached to someone else. Or that men apparently walk around constantly just throwing themselves at any woman. This isn't Victorian farking England.

I've never met the guy actually. I mean, sure I'd see if it went anywhere if she was single, but she's not so I don't give a fark.

Funny thing is, I've had a variant of this situation happen to me before. I was in a few classes with a completely different woman years ago, and apparently because she talked about me a fair bit, her husband tried to come kill me. Like actually waiting outside my apartment in the parking lot, which luckily for me I didn't go anywhere that night. Found out like six months later when she told me. Kind of amusing actually, you know, once he wasn't trying to kill me. I've never provoked that kind of response in someone before. On the other hand, I was pissed off because I wasn't even farking her, and as I see it, if someone is going to kill me for banging his wife I'd like to actually be doing it, you know?

So, anyone got any more Tales of Boring White People?

Pretty much. It's all sorts of farked up, unless you're part of some kind of ultra-orthodox religious community. It's still farked up there, too, but at least it's normal in that frame of reference. I still occasionally have an idle thought about whether or not the judgemental coworker goes through life avoiding one-on-one situations with men, or whether it's okay again once you're married.

Does she not know where to find tee shirts and pants? While I feel that clothing should allow you to be functional in the given situation you will encounter. I don't think dressing a certain way means you are dressing like a hooker. Especially since guys are allowed to go in public shirtless without being considered hookers.

I can see one of two outcomes here: the first is that the kids tow the family line into adulthood. The second outcome is that both of these kids hightail it out of there, leaving douchebag dad to wonder why the kids never call and send his mail back unopened.

Oh god I hate people who pull that shiat.. I had that once with a guy I know, whose girlfriend still thinks that I was "after" him all because I invited him over when my then-boyfriend tried to kill himself (they are both schizophrenic and my boyfriend needed support). That and sending a text to everyone in my phone book one night when I was high (I doubt it was even intelligible). Wow. Clearly I am a hussy who was out to get her man. Nobody else had a problem, but this guy biatched at me about it at a party months later ... after having originally curtly told me "they never go anywhere alone" at the time! I apologised and explained. That was over 10 years ago, but she is STILL putting it around as fact that I tried to "steal her man".

Some people really make my blood boil. I think the subtext is that there is some major insecurity deal going on. I know for a fact that there was in my example. I HOPE one or both of them reads this ...

She has already considered the possibility that you and she might be alone together, and considering this has come to the conclusion that the inevitable result would be physical contact between you. Since she cannot predict your response, she has come to this conclusion based on what exists in her head; therefore, she cannot trust herself around you. This is classic blame-shifting. The upshot, though, is that even if you were to have consensual sex, in order to maintain her "spotless" image she would always present herself as the "innocent victim" and you as the "savage predator", no matter how much she wants it, because that's the logical conclusion of the blame-shifting game she has already presented to you.

Funnily enough, most of the hookers I know dress very inconspicuously. The ones that work on the street, I mean. For one thing their addictions obviously take all their money, and I guess they don't want to attract the attention of the police etc.

Don't be incredibly insulted, just laugh at her. Say "I wouldn't let you try anything, because I now know you can't help yourself without Bob (or whatever his name is). Just know that I understand your weakness and it won't come between us". Then she will say "No, I was worried about you!" And you say "Well, that's no problem! You're kind of disgusting.
