Through $2000 Wedding (which is a cool blog, I recommend reading it if you aren’t already), I came across this article written by a woman who chose not to have her dad give her away at her wedding. If you read the article, you’ll see that her father was totally cool with the whole thing.
And then I saw the 600+ comments, the majority of which were HORRIBLY judgmental and mean. Some examples:
“That’s exactly what is wrong with so many people today. I doubt that you want to have any vows either. Let’s just live our lives as we want and when he cheats on you, oh well, there wasn’t anything there to begin with. How about dear old dad that worked his ass off all his life to make sure that you didn’t go hungry or live in your car, let’s not honor him in any way after all, it’s all about you.”
“It sounds to me like she has no respect for any tradition as it is. The fact the she has two cats and a P-whipped guy makes me wonder if he sould not be wearing the dress.”
“Why did you bother at all? For the wedding gifts?”
“If my daughter had done that to me…(That would hurt) I would leave her out of the will and leave the $$$ to ducks unlimited…you know…something not so traditional…what a little witch….”
“what a bitch. her poor dad having to put up with a wackjob like this. 10 yrs of shacking up? why bother getting married? I don’t want to go to that wedding!! I would rather have my saturday off to hang out with my wife and kids… pathetic story, pathetic author…”
“that is a really ugly dress. did you not look in a mirror? and as with most feminists, you are incredibly self centered. i find your actions very selfish. but don’t worry, i’m sure your dad will get another chance at your next wedding.”
“well good for you, i’m betting you’ll be 1st in line at your dad’s reading of the will, and still be pissed when you get nothing.”
“You are a blo hard and a witch. Feminazi employed as a blobag and as useless as they come. I hope one day an oil slick engulfs you and your penisless husband along with your whaleshit father.”
Honestly, I am livid about this. This was the comment I posted, in reply to all of the hate:
“It used to be a tradition to own slaves. It used to be a tradition for Roman men to fight to the death in front of an audience for the entertainment of Roman patricians. It used to be tradition for Samurai to disembowel themselves. Just because something is a tradition doesn’t mean that it’s the only way, and it CERTAINLY doesn’t mean that someone who chooses to break that tradition should be subjected to such disrespect and hatred.”
What do you think about the article? Do you think the writer was selfish? And even if you do, do you think that she deserved those hateful comments?
