Skip to comments.Hypocrisy From The 'No Slut Shaming' Crowd
Posted on 06/16/2014 5:47:28 PM PDT by Faith Presses On
As a teenager, I'm used to facing peer pressure. Everything from T.V. and magazines to parents and teachers tell me how to live and act. Don't get me wrong, many of those influences are positive and uplifting, but a new pressure has completely blindsided my friends and me. This new pressure, namely liberal feminists, accuse me and other teenage girls who wear purity rings and pledge to save sex for marriage, of valuing our virginity too much. Umm, what?
Tracy Clark-Flory wrote an article, The Virginity Fetish, that compares young women like me who believe in saving sex until marriage, to Natalie Dylan, a young woman who sold her virginity online to the highest bidder. Clark-Flory claims that young women saving their virginity for marriage "auction off [their] virginity to the person with the biggest ring."
The person who compares love and self respect to prostitution obviously doesn't understand what a purity ring, or even virginity in general, represents. As a teenage girl, I can not disagree strongly enough with this portrayal of young women who have committed to preserve their virginity until marriage as greedy, unscrupulous women seeking to purchase financial security at the price of their own bodies. The irony that these are the same women who accuse conservatives of waging a war on women is not lost to me.

The sluts lose in this game of life and death. You can be sure of that..
Up is down. Strong is weak. Right is wrong. And slavery is freedom.
People were all worried when school sex-ed was “if it feels good, do it”
Today it has become “You are strange and stupid for not doing it”
Those who want kids to have sex generally want to have sex with kids.
Spot on. It’s grooming all the way.
Oh yes, Jesus is victor. He IS love.
Jesus is in Heaven and Satan, once Lucifer, the light bearer, is in hell.
i reject the premise. what punk guy is offering rings to girls today for their virginity? most don’t have to offer anything when it’s being given away for free.
teaching women that their virginity is something to be casually tossed away, it’s a damn shame. no value placed on it. not a wonder why so many gals have regrets.
keep looking up, Jesus is coming back any day. take comfort in that fact when you see the whole world turning to sodom.
not yet he’s not. he’s loose running around like a lion devouring anyone he can as he knows his time is short.
The Bible tells us that our bodies are the temple of the holy spirit and that we should not defile them.
It also tells us that fornication does defile them.
