According to One Poster, If You Are A Virgin, You Have Wasted Your Life or Time
The following post contains crass language. I put that warning in here for any sensitive Christian readers who may drop by.
I was looking over SCCL’s Facebook page, and under a post linked to Christian sex advice (link to post), which is about a blog post by a 32 year old virgin Christian woman, was this comment by a Jill Millings:
- 32 year old virgin. I feel sorry for her. She completely wasted her 20s
- (link to her post in that thread)
Give me a break, Jill.
I notice that Jill has one of those Facebook rainbow personal profile photos, which people who are supporters of homosexual marriage adopted when the Supreme Court upheld homosexual marriage a few weeks ago.
So. Jill is all keen on supporting homosexual sex and marriage, I take it, but totally into (hetero) virgin-shaming? (One wonders if she would be just as condescending about homosexuals who choose to forgo sex?)
I believe there were one or two people in that thread who said they respect other people’s choices to remain virgins should they choose to go that route. Good for them.
But one of the problems of visiting these types of sites – where ex Christians or liberal Christians like to rant about problems they have with Christian culture – is that you will sometimes see a devaluation of, or ridicule by, some members of biblical standards or traditional views or practices of sexuality.
This is one thing that is so insensitive and hypocritical about these liberal, atheist, or ex-Christian participants on these types of sites.
They will support almost any and all sexual choices and behaviors EXCEPT FOR adult virginity and adult celibacy.
People who were virgins in their twenties did not “waste their 20s.”
I’m over 40 and still a virgin. My life is not a “wasted life,” you harpy.
What an incredibly condescending view, to invalidate someone’s entire life merely because they didn’t suck on dicks or have a dick in their vagina?
How is that any better or different than sexual purity church programs you types complain about, where non-virgin girls say they feel dirty after their teacher compares them to being a stick of used chewing gum, or a glass of dirty water?
I’m more than my vagina or libido, Jill.
I’m not less of a woman, nor is my life less than yours, nor is my life to be pitied, all due to my choice to refrain from having a penis in my mouth or vagina.
All this also goes for the one person who so far has clicked on Jill’s comment, a Marguerite Halversen.
You guys are just as judgmental against sexual choices you don’t like as are the conservative Christians you rail against on these groups, blogs, and forums.
