Anyone heard of “honour killing” stories outside of movies from people you know IRL? This concept just seems so unreal to me. How does a parent kill their kid? Or do they not view them as their kid? Is there a history of dehumanisation happening before it gets to this point?

Unfortunately all this is very real. Watch “Crime Patrol” tv show, based on real life stories.

All over the news, all the time!

It is insane. Watch YouTube videos about Kohistan case. Four sisters and two brothers were killed just for singing and dancing in a wedding in Khyber Pakhtunwa province of Pakistan. Can’t believe that things like clapping to a song can get someone and their family members killed.

It's rare but real. Probably the worst thing to exist in the desi culture. The saddest part is that the larger community often protects the perpetrators all on the name of honor and culture.

I agree. Even 1 is too many.

Recent case of hyderabad -2018-2019 was live on cam, primary reason is the extreme distrust and class level that people associate with other communities. Girls father who got his Son in law killed garnered lots of support from like minded people and went on as a guest on several news channels

I don't think many on this app would know anyone IRL that is involved in an honor killing because typically those happen in more rural, "backwards" parts of India like rural Haryana, etc. where people are less educated But they definitely do happen IRL, for example Manoj-Babli case that is well documented

No, just conjecture that it may be the exception not the norm. Meant no offense by it

Our baby is due soon so we’ve made the decision that we will only have visits from vaccinated family members (not realizing it would be an issue) only to find out that my Dad will never be getting vaccinated, planned to lie about it AND asked other family members lie to us about his vaccination status too… when we found out and asked him about it, he started to FREAK out.

Which health insurance plan do you recommend for pregnancy and maternity care? Looking for switching during current open enrollment .

Also, if I get pregnant in December and switch to any other from Jan, will that works or the new insurance provider might raise a concern to cover the expenses? TIA!

34w pregnant and trying to discuss our visitor rules with husb. My preference is no one to visit the first 2 weeks, after I would allow visitors but I don’t want anyone unvaccinated to hold the baby for the first 2 months and to wear a mask if we allow them indoors. The problem is my entire family is vaccinated and my husb is not. They are also not taking precautions and going to big events constantly. Husb feels like I’m singling out his fam. Anyone else going through the same or have advice?
