A critique of purity culture (part 1)

“On the conservative end of the purity spectrum, the one overarching message can be summed up in a single word: ‘don’t.’ Don’t lose your virginity. Don’t kiss, don’t touch anything, don’t feel your feelings, and don’t date until you’re ready to get married. While these may seem like extreme measures to take, without a positive, working definition of purity, the only alternative seems to be to run as far away from any and all things that could even potentially lead to someone losing their status as pure.”
