Her statement indicates assurance that she is not only strong, but also able to defend herself against any unworthy suitors. Here’s the problem with shotgun jokes and applications posted on the fridge: to anyone paying attention, they announce that you fully expect your daughter to have poor judgment. And don’t be shocked if she meets your expectation. Leadership is not about the strong looking for weaker people to lead.
You might want to worry less about terrorizing or retro-fitting prospective suitors and worry more about preparing your daughter to choose wisely.
