Riles for dating my daughter dating transgenders in prison
Luttrell caused a sensation on Facebook by posting a list of requirements that any potential match to his daughter should meet.
The post has been shared about 4,900 times and “liked” by over 39,000 people.
Luttrell is certainly thinking ahead — his daughter is only 2 years old!
Okay, so in part, he’s joking and over-exaggerating.
He asks that anyone who wants to date his daughter should, “Paint the house, mend some fence, cut the lawn, rope a tornado, bottle up a hurricane, and put out a forest fire w/ a squirt gun.” But the heart of his message is a very serious one, and it is, I believe, why the post has become so popular.
At it’s core he’s talking about control: restricting whom his daughter can see based on fear that she’s going to get hurt or make a choice that he doesn’t agree with, a sentiment he wraps in the guise of fatherly love but which is actually disturbing and sexist. First, he says that any boy — and his list assumes that his daughter will want to date a boy when she begins dating, though at the age of 2, it’s far too early to tell her sexual preferences — will have to meet and get the blessing of all of his Navy SEAL teammates while they show him the armory.
Through the magic of Social Media, it was by far the most read, passed around and commented on blog in the life of this little project.

A New York Times bestseller, the book has proven popular for parents, teenagers, and former teenagers everywhere.
It just so happens that due to my experience as a Young Life leader and as a parent, I might have a thing or two to say about being a Dad.
