(Purity) Balls

Although they are nothing new, Purity Balls are definitely worth posting about. For those of you who were blissfully unaware, a Purity Ball is a father/daughter dance with a disturbing twist. Not only do you have to spend the night acting like your dad is your prom date, he then pledges to protect your virginity "in mind, body, and soul". Ew. And you pledge to stay a virgin until you marry [a man] and the property switches ownership.

As to be expected with things related to men controlling womens' bodies, the religious are behind this one too. Shocking.

me too! we are sick, sick people.

oh and check out this new study saying that having sex does not harm the mental health of older teenagers.

purity is the only way to save our girls...from their own sexuality.

I used to have purity balls. I guess I don't any more. (I'm not trying to be obnoxious just funny)
