I'd like to point out that while popcornpuffs is taking a decidedly religious approach in expressing her opinion, the idea of virginity before marriage is not just a Christian thing. It exists in the traditional mores of cultures all over the world. How many times have you watched an anime where a girl exclaims "now I'll never be able to get married!" because she's done something or had something done to her that she thinks compromises her purity?

The idealism of monogamy and pre-marital chastity seems to be pretty universal. If you think about it, there are many practical advantages to society when people choose one mate and stick with them... STD's don't have much of a chance to spread, children would usually grow up with two parents, and young people wouldn't have their lives derailed by a sudden pregnancy or the trauma of an abortion or adoption process. Technology has provided us with many ways to mitigate the risks and consequences of a sexually free lifestyle, but none of them are foolproof, and if you take a quick look at our society, there certainly seem to be a lot of fools.

It's always been fashionable to sneer at tradition, but often traditions are the results of hard lessons learned by our forebears.



This guy knows what he's talking about.

I agree 100%

Seriously people, what the heck? Nowadays, I see people talking about having sex with their bf/gf or not even with their gf/bf with random friends or people, like it's nothing. Sex is supposed to be special, and you are only supposed to give your virginity to your husband or wife. And don't give me that BS about moral relativism. No offense, but I think that society has become too liberal. I mean, sex is glamorized in the media which gives the wrong message to children. Deep down in your heart, do you honestly think a twelve year old girl having sex is okay? It's getting ridiculous. Anyone else agree with me? The media is like encouraging children and teens to be promiscuous. It's nasty.

Girls saying that their role model is Beyonce or Lady Gaga. Like stfu! My only role model and idol will forever be Jesus Christ! He keeps it too Real and when he keeps it too real people tend to just hate!
I know right, out of all my guy friends they give me alot of crap for saving it for marriage, but I know it will be well worth it. yeah todays morals have gone right out the window and I dont know if there is any going back from it. hopefully I can find a girl who is going to save it for marriage as well, since girls are now starting to throw away their virginity like its no big deal

Very true, this is a breath of fresh air

I like the way he managaed to keep his post unbiased. The OP could learn from this.

Yes, many traditions are there for a reason. This is assuming a person would want to live that lifestyle. I mean, sex may or may not be something we should only parttake in after marriage, despite your reason for waiting. I feel like the OP didn't acknowledge the different ways people choose to live their lives and their reasons for doing so.

Right and wrong is viewed differently in the eyes of another. I actually agree with you. The media does glamorize sex and I do believe children are influenced by it, but to put it bluntly what can you do? Not everyone goes by the same belief system as you do.


^ My answer. About children being influenced by sexual content, it's up to the parents with discussing to their kids about sex, its affect in tv, magazines & etc. Also to mention about making the right choices when it comes to this topic. To me, teens are a bit responsible as well too, with the actions they commit.

people can be influenced by manythings to do stupid things ... i am a prime example of that but i do agree people also need to take responsibility for what actions they decide to do. Hiding behind things never solves the problem for one's self.
