While poking around at Ladies Against Feminism I wandered back into the blog Loving Life at Home by Jennifer and a post by her daughter titled “Virginity: It It Really Worth Saving?”. Her daughter decided the best analogy to describe her decision to wait for marriage to have sex is comparing her virginity to holding onto a Beanie Baby. A mint Beanie Baby with it’s original tags in a box, untouched for years.
That’s just sad. It’s nothing like that. That poor Beanie Baby is unloved, uncherished, sad, lonely and useless. I would hope that a human being is none of those things, virginity or not!
Oh, I remember the craze well. I also remember my pastor speaking out against it, calling it a cult, something that no good Christian should indulge in. One of my friends had collected them all and after our pastor declaring them demonic she gave hers away to African children on a mission trip. I still remember the joy those kids exhibited after being given a small plush toy. I would not have dreamed it was a blessing, but it was to those kids in the bush.
But it still does not represent virginity well.
I hope she waits for a man who loves her, if that’s what she wants. But, sweet girl, saving your virginity for marriage is very different than keeping your Beanie Baby sealed in a package no matter what your parents have told you.
A child cannot possibly promise to that which they do not understand.
