That Was Stupid; Here’s Why.

Posted by candyposes on 01 Mar 2007 | Tagged as: that was stupid, here's why.

I’ve decided that if you leave something stupid in my blog, I’m either going to delete it or make a post mocking it in an entry called, “That was stupid; here’s why.”

That was stupid; here’s why.

The following comment was made in my blog:

“I enjoyed your photos and ideas.

I hope your family doesn’t murder you.
(I’m told there are about 5,000 “honor killings” a year in the Muslim World. )

and I thought MY family was a drag!

Good luck”

That was stupid.

Here’s why:

1. I live in the United States.

2. My family isn’t Muslim.

3. My parents know what I do.

4. And even if the three above statements weren’t true (and, keep in mind, all of these facts are present in my blog; you don’t have to read very far or very hard to find them), not all places in the Middle East are full of honor killings.  Not all (not most, in fact) Muslim families would kill their daughters for doing what I’m doing.  Have you ever been to the Middle East, or talked to a Muslim before?

That was stupid.  And that’s why.
