If we have rules about how the young men are to comport themselves when they plan to date someone's princess, shouldn't there ALSO be a few regarding the behavior of the young women hoping to date our handsome princes whom we are sending out into the world to slay the dragon, protect the castle, defend the honor of the princess whom they hope to someday receive as the queen of their castle?
Thank you for your interest in dating my wonderful son.
She’s a girl asking to date your son, not a broodmare for your purebred stallion OK? We’ve learned that some people still think breeding, comportment and rigid gender roles are more important than what their own children might think of their relationship choices.
And it wouldn’t be complete without a sexist little Red State style stab at Hillary Clinton, who will soon be the nations first Lesbian Witch Vampire President. We’ve learned that son #1 will have a leg up on treating his eventual bride like “helpmeet”, ignoring her when convenient but holding exclusive rights to her time when he needs her.

What follows is a list of rules much like our previous example. Rule One: If you talk with foul words and dress like a tramp in shirts that are too small and pants low with thong showing, I will treat you like one. Rule Four: Do not be hurt when my son chooses sports or gaming over time with you. If I ask you where you are going and with whom, you have one chance to tell me the truth. He was raised that family comes first and until there is a ring on his finger, I am his family, not you. He does not have Hasbro, Mattel or any other toy company tattooed on his person.
This is attitude more appropriate for a medieval village or sepia toned small town than a modern industrialized society. A woman’s place is in the: ______________________________________ D. But on issues relating to my son, I am the queen of his universe. Rule Nine: Do not be hurt when my son chooses spending time with me over spending time with you.
Of course, the misogyny begins to really shine through in these two sections. They wouldn’t do anything to make Baby Jesus cry unless some trollop leads them astray.
