abstinence and ridiculousness
something my co-worker pointed out to me from the nytimes today:
“You have to look at why sex was created,” Eric Love, the director of the
East Texas Abstinence Program, which runs Virginity Rules, said one day, the
sounds of Christian contemporary music humming faintly in his Longview office.
“Sex was designed to bond two people together.”
To make the point, Mr. Love grabbed a tape dispenser and snapped off
two fresh pieces. He slapped them to his filing cabinet and the floor; they
trapped dirt, lint, a small metal bolt. “Now when it comes time for them to get
married, the marriage pulls apart so easily,” he said, trying to unite the grimy
strips. “Why? Because they gave the stickiness away.”
oh, all is lost! i've given away my stickiness! now i'll never be able to be in a committed relationship! woe is me!
