Earlier today I watched a documentary on the phenomenom of purity pledges, girls pledging to stay virgins until marriage. They had all these purity balls and stuff where the girls dress up and dance with their dads, who are the driving force for the whole purity thing. It's all a "religious" thing by fundamentalists.

Anyone else seriously weirded out this stuff? I mean these girls don't know anything about the outside world, and their dads put all these ideas about relationships and whatnot in their head. Most of the ideas are entirely made up and portrays every interaction with the opposite sex as evil.

The dads that really push these things on the daughters are pretty much borderline Joseph-Fritzl. Watch the dad around the 1 minute mark in the below video and you'll see why.

Here's a video on it that seriously creeps me out:

Anyone else going "What the fuck?" at this? Are the dads being pervy or what? If you have daughter, how would you approach the subject of sex and relationships?

in fact this is really weird, but I can't say I'm really weirded out, I have seen and hear so much things like this by religious groups that I have lost the ability to get impressed by this kind of stuff.

I have a daughter, and what weirds me out is the thought of her having underage sex with some teenage boy who doesn't give a flying shite about her feelings.
It weirds me out because I was once such a teenage boy, so I know how they think, and being her dad, I'm naturaly very protective of her.

But I wouldn't go as far as those guys. In the end, I have to respect that she's an individual with her own choices and mistakes to make in life. I can advise her based upon experience and hope that she takes notice of me but there's no way I'm going to lie to her and tell her that sex outside of marriage is evil.

I came here for purity balls, but when i read it I was thinking spheres not dances.

I had no idea wtf was going on...

It's a sweet sentiment, wanting to hold that for someone you truly love. It should be something that the kids think of, not the parents telling them.

EDIT: The way they call virgins "pure" is making me uncomfortable.

meh, this stuff is weird and a bit over-the-top, but I do know people who voluntarily wear purity rings and such, and that I find to be okay

Did that vid actually say that he took his daughter out for a date and give her a ring? If i was an onlooker i'd have probably thought he was a paedo or something.

Agreed.
Losing one's virginity is simply an experience, it can be a good, bad or indifferent experience depending upon who you do it with or your mood at the time.

The first time you buy something from a shop is also an experience. That doesn't make someone who has never bought something from a shop 'pure' though, it simply makes them 'inexperienced'.

Seems less like fathers keeping their daughters pure for Christ, and more like fathers keeping their daughters under lock and key out of jealousy.

You keep seeing songs like KoC, SMBH, and Hysteria showing up on games, but I want Micro Cuts on either Rock Band or Sing Star. I want to see numerous masses of kids staring at the tv wondering what the hell they're supposed to do.

If they were doing it out of their own free will I would understand and respect their decisions, but this just sounds like brainwashing to me.

At first I thought this was sick with a tinge of hilarity, until about 30 seconds in and they were all dancing with their daughters and were reeeeaaaaallly close and whispering in their ears and stuff....

That's just a little fucked up.

This is weird. But not extremely weird. I was taught to stay "pure" till marriage, and I went on daddy-daughter dates. But never anything creepy like the ring or close dancing. I have to say the part in the pledge about "being a priceless gift to their husband" made me palm my face though.

I think I'd be the same, but jesus christ the guys in the video... some of those girls are like 6 years old and their dads take them to these dances where they pledge they'll stay virgins until they're married. What. the. fuck. people.?.

The daddy-daughter dates should really set off some alarms to people.

Meh, all of the males posting here, I can almost guarantee that if you have a daughter you will seek to protect her with your life. You will not want her to give away her childhood and make the same mistakes you did. If you allow her to have sex, you'll probably be concerned that she uses protection etc.

But yes, virginity pledges are odd. Thankfully not very common in the UK however. I have met girls who are quite old and still virgins (mid 20s) and girls who are very young (13-14) who are not virgins. Fact of the matter being is, you generally do it when you're ready though I have been given the talk by a female friend on a night out that she regretted losing hers when she was about 13.

Purity promises and purity rings are all a bunch of crap. My church was trying to get everyone to do it. It's stupid. Making a 'pledge' to not do something isn't gonna help you in situations. You aren't gonna be half naked then say, 'oh i made a pledge, sorry'

Shit is ****ed up. I watched a documentary about it when I was at school and one of the preachers compared having sex to sticking a dirty tooth brush in your mouth.

I can't stand when people take religious views and alter them into obscure, twisted versions. I'm oddly fascinated by it but it still fills me with a lot of confusion and anger. Speaking of religious fundamentalists, I'm really keen to see that new Kevin Smith film Red State.
