Here is an interesting documentary about young women who vow their purity. It's a Christian movement belief. What someone decides what to believe is their choice. I believe, it is VERY important for a father to set the example of how a MAN should behave and how to treat women with RESPECT. Now, if the parents choose whom the daughter/s are to marry is another subject. Treating SEX as a TABOO subject and viewing marriage as the ONLY allowed way to enjoy SEX is a narrow way to view it. (People NEED choices and young men and women are NOT aware of alternative lifestyles.) Here is the 48 minute documentary: The Virgin Daughters | Watch Free Documentary Online Tamaree at sexwithtamaree.co has her input. Here it is: Purity Balls: Creepy and Weird or Just Backwards and Sexist? Timaree | September 8, 2011 at 10:19 am Ok, obviously I'm a little prejudiced. So what is a Purity Ball? It's part of a growing conservative Christian movement of abstinence pledges by young girls. They may take a purity pledge in which they vow to remain chaste until marriage and even wear a purity ring to symbolize this commitment. So far, it's not a big deal. It's kind of nice, even: a young woman taking control over her body and destiny and choosing to commit to a course of action that she deems to be the best one for her health and future happiness. It's practically feminist. But here is the weird bit: it all has to do with her dad. He takes her to a Purity Ball, a father-daughter dance in essence, where the focus of everyone in attendance is on the virginity of the girls and their shared interest in protecting this "purity." The ceremony itself mimics a traditional wedding, what with the rings and cake and nice dress and dance and all. And most importantly, it harkens back to the origins of marriage as an institution not between a man and a woman (as anti- marriage equality advocates would like you to believe) but as an agreement between a dude and the father of the girl he'd like to buy. It reminds us of a sweeter, gentler time when the entire value of a female was encapsulated in her virginity and ability to bear children. And if the potential husband and potential father-in-law couldn't come to an agreement about the amount of money that would pass between them in the transaction, the young man (although he'd be much older than the girl) had the option of rounding up some of his friends to kidnap the girl and rape her. No longer a virgin, her value was so diminished that her family had to relent. And that lovely chapter of our history is still celebrated today in a much vaguer, milder form: groomsmen and honeymoons. Anyway. So this Purity Ball nonsense. You notice it's all about the importance of girls being chaste. No one seems nearly as concerned about young men getting some. And on another note: why can't you just hang out with your daughters like a normal person: without making them pledge to you to uphold your belief system so that when they inevitably get older and start thinking for themselves (and realize they may have other preferences besides sticking with a decision they made as prepubescents) that they don't have to feel super awful for having broken a promise to their dad?
