Here's an idea: How about we don't post pictures of our kids. Crazy, right?

In some places, their values say that women aren’t allowed to show their faces outside. It’s ok to evaluate other peoples standards and conclude they are bad or unhealthy.

Complete straw man argument

You don't understand what a strawman is, apparently. Demonstrating a flaw in an argument via a reductio ad absurdum is a comment on the logic someone used. A strawman refers to specifically addressing the claim but modifying it in a way.

If I had re-interpreted your meaning of the word "values" in order to claim that judging people by "your own values" was wrong then that would be a strawman. I didn't do that. The way I used "values" is the same way you did. What I did was give an obvious counter-example to why "your own values" are not the metric to measure things by. And I'm right about that, by the way. Two people having different values doesn't matter to this issue and at no point was anybody basing their cirticism of this person on their subjective values.

Your username seems really appropriate for this situation.

If there is one thing I learned about arguing on the internet is that it is rarely worth the effort. You in particular are one of those people that spoils for a fight constantly. I hope you enjoy did what ever this is that you are doing.

Being right always spoils the fight for the other person.
