This idea is compelling, but I found it infuriating that every example of people foolishly and violently throwing around honor involved brown people. If we are going to have a discussion about honor, we should be comprehensive enough to include examples from all over the globe - Including the United states, including European nations, including predominantly Christian cultures. Take, for example, the case of Brandy Martell, a transgendered women murdered days ago  in Oakland, CA after an altercation with a man who became enraged upon learning she was trans. This likely had everything to do with a perceived restoration of the honor of this man's masculinity and sexuality.
