Assimilation, not integration

Posted on May 20, 2013 by

Some of the ladies here — well, specifically, two of us — raised some eyebrows in the child bride thread when we suggested that immigrant women who wish to remain in the country should have to prove their good intentions by marrying a native man.


Instead of being shocked, take a moment to think about us. We both married Germanic Catholics, and converted and completely assimilated into their culture. We know what we’re talking about.

The idea that people can just move to Western countries en masse, take up residence, and just go about their separate ways, as long as they learn the native language, respect the laws, and hold down a job, is a seriously bad idea. Integration is multiculturalism. If you want to know how your resident foreigners really feel about your culture, find out whether they will let you marry their daughters. That is the one and only legitimate test of assimilation.

Furthermore, any group that marries your daughters, while refusing to let you have equal access to their own, should be regarded as hostile. Because they are.
