No, you missed the point. Again. You’re just trying to dodge the question and the obvious double standard posited.

If someone is offended by someone leaving their faith, they have a serious problem. And if someone can’t see this girl’s family is being portrayed as fundie loons, they are seriously blind.

Kamala will face struggles outside her own head, including conflicts close to home. “Her brother is extremely conservative,” Ms. Amanat said. “Her mom is paranoid that she’s going to touch a boy and get pregnant. Her father wants her to concentrate on her studies and become a doctor.” Next to those challenges, fighting supervillains may be a welcome respite.

A father who wants his daughter to study and become a doctor is not a Islamic fundamentalist. And a mother’s being concerned about her daughter getting pregnant out of wedlock is not a fundamentalist concern. Keep your facts straight.
