Sexual Equality, Sexual Decadence: The Emerging Menace of Female Predators – from The Other McCain – Also quotes feminists as saying Virginity Invalidates Lesbianism and is Hence a Terrible Concept
If you are a Christian person, please don’t assume other Christians are any better about this subject than secular feminists, because they are not.
I have a collection of links at this blog of Christians – yes, Christians – who “bad mouth” and criticize adult singleness, celibacy, and virginity. It’s not only secular feminists who denounce sexual purity / virginity but some Christians these days as well.
I will include a few links to examples of Christians who have bashed sexual purity and virginity at the bottom of this post, under “related posts.” It’s not just secular feminists who attack sexual purity, it’s Christians too, sadly.
I would say the guy at this Other McCain blog is not a fan of secular feminism, nor am I.
But, I do think secular feminists are right on some topics some of the time.
I am not in full agreement with Christian and conservative “modesty” teachings or always with how they are taught, or that males are excluded from such teachings (see for example these posts on that issue: (Link): Modesty: A Female-Only Virtue? – Christian Double Standards – Hypocrisy and (Link): Beauty Redefined Site Discusses Modesty: Modest Is Hottest?)
The blog page has a quote from some feminist author who thinks virginity is a terrible concept because it invalidates what she calls “queer sex.” So there you go, more virgin and celibate shaming from secular quarters.
I would encourage you to read the entire page below, of which I will only be offering a few excerpts:

- …. The Washington Post offers feminist Jessica Valenti op-ed space to argue that we need to keep talking about “rape culture,” coincidentally providing Valenti a chance to promote her book about “Female Sexual Power.” But what if female sexual power is actually a major contributing factor to rape culture?
This paradoxical possibility isn’t something anyone at the Washington Post is willing to consider, yet the celebration of aggressive promiscuity in the name of “empowerment” may be implicated in all kinds of unintended consequences:
[his points here can be summarized in my previous post here: (Link): Can Boys Be ‘Coerced’ Into Sex? (article from Daily Beast) ]
So, “girls are more aggressive sexually today,” which Jessica Valenti and other feminists would certainly applaud as liberation and equality, an exercise of “female sexual power,” no matter what the parents of young victims might say.
And in case you haven’t noticed, boys are not the only victims of “more aggressive” women. Careful readers may notice a recurring theme in the following stories:
[he then notes several examples of adult women who preyed on female students]
… Parents who invoke lost innocence in expressing disapproval of their teenage daughters having sex with lesbians are “bolstering up a highly heteronormative hierarchy,” as feminist Jess McCabe says, because “this concept of virginity, in a sense, invalidates queer sex,” as feminist Hew Li-Sha says, and as feminist Erin McKelle says: “Heterosexuality is the norm, and virginity just works as reinforcement to this.” The feminist message is consistent: Don’t be misogynistic homophobes, parents!
