“Knowing that he wouldn’t be there for her wedding, a terminally ill father walked his 11-year-old down the ‘aisle’ years early with the pastor sweetly pronouncing them ‘daddy and daughter’.
Jim Zetz, 62, from Murrieta, California, who has stage 4 pancreatic cancer, proudly held his daughter, Josie’s hand during their backyard ceremony on March 14 and placed a sparkling ring on her index finger.”
oh my god this made me cry
this is disgusting
How revolting. What a pig of a man. He can’t bear the thought of his daughter not being owned by a man.
Or maybe if she decides she WANTS to marry the love of her life he wishes he could walk her down the aisle you fucking idiots
Yes let us force heterosexuality and archaic rituals of the patriarchal exchange of property onto pre-pubescent children, wooo freedom of choice woo
And this is how people become anti-feminists. An innocent and touching story about a man who is about to die taking advantage of his last days by creating a memory for his daughter who will soon be fatherless is turned into some insane feminist diatribe.
And who the fuck ever said she had to be marrying a man to be walked down the aisle? No one even mentioned men at all? This could just as easily apply to a homosexual wedding. This could apply to a wedding of any kind, and if the little girl ever decides to get married, while she will have that “I wish my dad was here to see me” moment, she’ll also have a lovely memory of the day that he did get to walk her down the aisle.
Don’t be cynical. Look how much this means to both of them.
Oh and double fuck you to the idea that weddings are “disgusting” “patriarchal” and “an exchange of property”. Yeah that’s how they started out but weddings and marriage have changed and evolved and if someone wants to get married and wants to have a wedding, traditional or not, of her own free will, it’s her damn choice and you need to back the fuck up.
I’m really tired of the shit women get for getting married, having weddings, or being housewives. Yes, you’re an independent single business woman and that’s what makes you happy. Good for you. Don’t tear down fairytale marriage family dreams just to justify your lifestyle though.
