Fish Necklaces Made Out of Gold Mean Down On You, She Won’t Go

I already had two posts scheduled for today, but I really wanted to talk about this because it struck a nerve with me. So, by the end of today, there will be 3 posts up. Sorry for the deluge! I just tend to write/plan most of my posts a few days to a week ahead of time. 

“I just have one thing to say about promise rings. It’s not bad to wear a promise ring because not everybody – guy or girl – wants to be a slut.” -Jordin Sparks at the VMAs
Now, I am going to make this quick, but I just wanted to at least mention this. Just because you choose to be sexually active prior to marriage does not make you a slut. Granted, we all know that I hate that word anyway, but if we are going to take “slut” for its colloquial meaning, then it is referring to someone who sleeps around.
Choosing not to wear a promise ring and not to save yourself for marriage in no way, shape, or form makes you a slut. You have the choice to do with your body what you want, and there are many people who do not abstain from sex before marriage that only have a few partners in their life, most or all of whom they were in a serious relationship with. Those people are NOT sluts.
So, sorry Jordin Sparks. You can defend your own right (and the Jonas Brothers’ for that matter) to wear a promise ring, but to call people that don’t “sluts” is just plain ignorant and idiotic. See? People like you are the reason that we don’t need sex education in our schools. Clearly abstinence only education worked for you, so surely it will work for the rest of America. Now go cast your vote for McCain. You are old enough to vote, right? Just barely? Oh, okay. Carry on, then. Just don’t come crying to me when you end up knocked up at 20 because then you will feel really fucking stupid. 
The same goes for Miley Cyrus, Selena Gomez, Julianne Hough, The Jonas Brothers, and any other moronic celebrities that made a public pledge of abstinence at the age of fucking 14. Remember when Britney Spears claimed to be saving herself for marriage? That turned out real well for her, didn’t it?
And no, I’m not even going to make a Bristol Palin joke because it is too damn easy. Le sigh.

    In my own personal experience (because everyone cares about that) I have found that the people who pledge themselves, do it because Mommy and Daddy want them to. So, they wear the ring for them and screw whoever they want.

    I had a friend who got pregnant and her mom said, "I would expect it from Fyrchk because she doesn't know that her virtue is sacred!"

    When I asked what she meant by that she said, "Well you won't wear a promise ring. Obviously it means NOTHING to you!"

    Meanwhile, I was the virgin and her daughter was screwing anything that threw a glance her way.

    Good times.
