Backpedaling on Purity Culture

…it’s important to know the difference between backpedaling and genuinely trying to change the conversation on sexuality. If you happen upon a website that claims they want to counter “shaming” messages on sexuality, I’ve found there are a few keywords and phrases that will quickly tell you of their real intentions.

The first clue that a blog or site is merely backpedaling is any sentence that starts with “in today’s sex[crazed/obsessed/starved/depraved/saturated] culture…” Anything that follows is usually promoting a one-sided view.
