yeah it's like totally going against nature and confining oneself. religion is always about control and never about freedom.

Suppressing things usually tends to make things worse.

Just goes to prove....

What the ğck is the point of this? Denying your own sexuality is unhealthy. This sounds like some Amish took over the world stuff. There has to be something in the water that's making these people zombies.

i think it's not something in the water... i think most people have some sort of internal desire for predictability. they don't seem to like unpredictable situations... belief systems give them the comfort of a controlled environment where things are predictable. of course other people have seen this and use this desire to control people. my 2 cents.^^

True that. I've not had any teenager with my kids, but then I didn't suggest any purity pledge either.

During my teenage years, I was popular within three varying groups in high school (the badduns, the athletes, and the goodytwoshoes), and through observing the badduns (not participating) I learned some of the truth's of promiscuity and ruination for the girls only. So, I chose purity throughout high school and with the thought that I would save it for true love, I then entered into the working world at 17 years old.

In the world of disco, blind dates, and all night partying, I still kept true to the thought of finding the right one, but ALL my female friends were promiscuous and started needling me about it. Some were quite ruthness calling me frigid, 'something is wrong with you', and this from a divorced friend who said 'there is no such thing as love'. So, I started believing them because after all they were more experienced than me about this subject, so I gave it up to someone that had no intention of forming long-lasting ties to me, but that did care about me.

My point is here, that, on the one hand, while I am not sure if this verges on brain washing of very young children/teens, I can't help thinking that, in this day and age, purity should be an important consideration and discussed in detail with young people. So, how and where are these discussions to be? I had nobody to turn to for reassurance and community.

It's not easy to teach the kids about purity when popular media advocates promiscuity, casual sex and trash in general. 13.gif

Now, I am all for women's equality but I feel what is missing in the feminist opinion below is the disregard of the individual's desire, or intelligence to choose to believe that remaining a virgin is for the health (mental, physical) and emotional well-being for themselves (as I believed for myself).

It's one-sided to look only at the teachers/leaders of this movement and lay negative accusations, while not even giving the girls and boys their due respect of choice.
