If anyone is still holding on to the idea that abstinence only education isn’t all that bad, check out this quote from kidnapping and rape victim Elizabeth Smart:
Smart said she “felt so dirty and so filthy” after she was raped by her captor, and she understands why someone wouldn’t run “because of that alone.”
Smart spoke at a Johns Hopkins human trafficking forum, saying she was raised in a religious household and recalled a school teacher who spoke once about abstinence and compared sex to chewing gum. “I thought, ‘Oh, my gosh, I’m that chewed up piece of gum, nobody re-chews a piece of gum, you throw it away.’ And that’s how easy it is to feel like you know longer have worth, you know longer have value,” Smart said. “Why would it even be worth screaming out? Why would it even make a difference if you are rescued? Your life still has no value.”
Wow. It’s so dangerous to teach women and girls that their instrinsic value is tied to their virginity. I am not a chewed-up gross piece of gum! I hate gum.

!!!!!!!! <—- this is all I got.
ARE YOU SERIOUS? Also, this doesn’t make sense at all. If women act like men and men act like men, then we’re all acting like men, so shouldn’t we all be eligible for men to have sex with us? I’m confused.
