Do you study false dichotomy as a degree or something?
What beliefs are being forced? What part of wanting to make your parents happy is embarrassing?
It's fine in a relationship with a significant other if it gets you off but not with your parents?
If somebody [in a world without consequence/punishment] said omg i want so bad to rape that girl but I can't because it'll hurt her but I'm sooooo tempted, you wouldn't be like 'omg go for it, don't let others force their beliefs on you'
You're just intolerant of Islam, believing the beliefs to be 'ancient and flawed' - Your objections have nothing to do with liberty.
What? Did I say it was embarrassing or are you twisting what I said? Or perhaps you wrongly paraphrased? I would read over what I said again if I were you.
Now, I accept that TSR is a lot of things and it attracts all types but I guess I need to accept that that includes the plain stupid. As we have the ability to think we have the ability to make judgements based upon what we see, yes? If her religion was more personally held she would have mentioned it more, instead of outright saying she is sick of the rules that stop her dating this boy, and it is easy to infer that it is her fear of disappointing her parents is the only reason she follows these rules. We can do this by reading the things she says.
Your qualifier of 'in a world without consequence/punishment' does not make the situations comparable. You are foolish for even proposing to attempting such a comparison. And may I add that the consequences of her dating this boy are imagined. Can you guess why?
Are you denying that Islam is ancient and flawed, because unless you are really ignorant I don't think you would. It wasn't ancient in the 7th century, but it most certainly is now. It was still flawed then though. All those major, monotheistic religions are but we are only talking about Islam right now.
