  • If it was my dad, i would. if it were my mom, no.

  • I'd find it very hard to resist if they tried killing me. Animal instincts would overrule rational judgement.

  • I don't know my parents, so for me, it would be just as if anyone ells attacked me. If any of my other sets of parents, tried to kill me, the yes still I would fight back with every thing I have.

  • If I was in immediate danger: I'm pretty sure I could take both of them in a fight, and I'd simply find a way to subdue them if I could. But if they were both trying (which is impossible because my father is already dead), or they had weapons, I might have to resort to lethal force.

  • If they attacked me, I might kill them in self defense, but not in cold blood.

  • I don't believe an eye for an eye would solve it, I believe you can understand why they did it and overcome this situation.

  • I'd report them and let law enforcement deal with it. (It's not like my parents would ever do something that stupid) However if I couldn't defend myself without killing them during their murder attempt, i'd probably have to kill them.

  • I would try to detain them. I would only kill them as a last resort.

  • I'd definitely incapacitate them, but it would take a LOT for me to kill my parents.

  • I would run like hell but I wouldn't kill them on if I really had to yes

  • I could outrun both my parents with ease.

Why are they trying to kill their children?

@PetersSmith some parents are not the sane type.
tajshar2k says2015-09-26T21:22:26.8106986Z
It happens alot in the middle-east.
stargate says2015-09-26T21:23:44.0177035Z
I would maybe hurt them but I would never ever kill them. They are family and family and friends are to important to allow them to die.
UtherPenguin says2015-09-26T21:24:15.4837018Z
@tajshar2k More common in Pakistan,Central Asia and the Indian subcontinent.
PetersSmith says2015-09-26T21:32:36.5106901Z
Tajshar2k: That doesn't explain "why" they want to kill their children.
tajshar2k says2015-09-26T21:33:31.8010608Z
Because they disagree with something they do.
UtherPenguin says2015-09-26T21:36:16.7834880Z
@PetersSmith Honour killings I think. For example one case in Pakistan in which a Husband's family killed the wife due failure of paying dowry. In Canada two years ago Afghani parents and a son were sent to Jail for honour killings of three daughters. It's a cultural thing.
PetersSmith says2015-09-26T21:45:53.3971820Z
UtherPenguin: I'm talking about in context of the poll. Tajshar2k says that the parents are not sane, and then says you disagree with something they did and thus that's why they want to kill you. What did you disagree with them on that provoked them so much they had to kill you?
tajshar2k says2015-09-26T21:47:00.5375522Z
That depends on the reason. The poll isn't asking anything about that though.
tajshar2k says2015-09-26T21:47:26.2003877Z
For example, if your parents find out you are dating somebody they do not like, they would kill you.

@tajshar2k They do that in the middle east? Of course -_-
PetersSmith says2015-09-26T21:56:05.7464573Z
Tajshar2k: You can't just break up with them?
triangle.128k says2015-09-26T21:57:13.6382221Z
@PetersSmith I bet you'd try to infantcide against your child if you had one and they were a male. Sometimes crazy barbaric farmers in China and India do it if their child is a male...
Hannah.Vanderbur says2015-09-26T21:58:01.3188738Z
Petersmith: If you really like the person and your parent doesn't, why should we have to break up with them just because our parents doesn't like the person we're dating?
tajshar2k says2015-09-26T21:59:00.5844135Z
PetersSmith: If your parents are about to knife you or shoot you, you don't have to time to "break up"
PetersSmith says2015-09-26T22:00:07.5459073Z
Triangle.128k: Nice strawman.
PetersSmith says2015-09-26T22:00:21.6638168Z
Hannah.Vanderbur: Fear for your life.
Hannah.Vanderbur says2015-09-26T22:01:28.8028638Z
I'd rather fear for my life then break up with someone that i really like. Lol.....
Midnight1131 says2015-09-26T22:01:44.4967656Z
This pretty much comes down to would you try to kill someone if they were about to kill you. Whether or not they're your parents has nothing to do with it if they try to take your life.

This bloody doublepost...
triangle.128k says2015-09-26T22:03:43.8213210Z
It depends on the context of the question though. If in this crazy scenario one were to survive their parent's attempt of murder, then I would probably just let law enforcement deal with it.
PetersSmith says2015-09-26T22:03:44.8041147Z
Hannah.Vanderbur: Yes, but they're actively trying to murder you should you continue to date that person.
Hannah.Vanderbur says2015-09-26T22:06:08.8126485Z
I have legs. I can run.
KnowledgeGuy says2015-09-26T22:07:21.9587227Z
Clearly these parents must be insane.
Midnight1131 says2015-09-26T22:08:10.3701861Z
This is what happens when you don't specify...
UtherPenguin says2015-09-26T22:08:19.3663547Z
Parents trying to kill you? Just surrender, it worked for the French.
PetersSmith says2015-09-26T22:08:48.6015673Z
Hannah.Vanderbur: This isn't about "running away" this is about killing your parents.
Vox_Veritas says2015-09-26T22:09:29.2861065Z
Would this be in self-defense or just because you're mad that they tried to kill you?
triangle.128k says2015-09-26T22:10:22.9727361Z
@PetersSmith But you said you think males are inferior and sexually hungry and aggressive. And you want men to have lesser rights and roles in society over their gender.
Hannah.Vanderbur says2015-09-26T22:11:15.5224255Z
Deez nuts
PetersSmith says2015-09-26T22:11:37.5182845Z
Triangle.128k: So that automatically means I would kill my own male child? That makes total sense (sarcasm).
triangle.128k says2015-09-26T22:12:30.1619820Z
I'm just mocking your views on female supremacy, I doubt you would actually do that. (But I have suspicion you might)
Hannah.Vanderbur says2015-09-26T22:34:19.2611565Z
If my parents tried to kill me i would tell them to suck on DEEZ NUTS. Even tho i'm a girl and i don't have nuts
TBR says2015-09-26T22:56:47.7978894Z
Right... I need more on this. Like have I done something, or are they just psychopaths?
Heterodox says2015-10-01T19:27:59.0456614Z
I voted yes, but really what I would try to do is capture them and take them to someone for study. They are both dead so if they tried to kill me, there might be something to learn.
