I find it somewhat creepy that girls pledge their virginity to their fathers, and that they do it at a "Purity Ball." Don't know what a purity ball is? From Glamour, "It’s like a wedding but with a twist: Young women exchange rings, take vows and enjoy a first dance…with their dads. “Purity balls” are the next big thing in the save-it-till-marriage movement."
That's wonderful. I could feel better about these events if there were some kind of balance to them. Why should women always be the ones fighting for our purity, our "flowers"? It's bullshit. That's why I would love abstinence moms to organize a "Keep It in Your Pants Dance", where mothers and sons got dressed up and shared some quality time together. And moms would take vows to defend their sons' virginity from known whores in their town. And the evening would culminate in boys taking the "I'll keep it in my pants until after my wedding dance" vows. And they could buy abstinence merchandise that's so popular among the girls, baby-tees emblazed with the slogan "Not Boning 'Till Marriage".
Let's have this be a two-way street.
