"It's your shining glory!"
"It is the ultimate honor." They say.
I was taught to hold on to a precious gift.
I was told that it would be given to the one I wed.
If any scoundrel proposed anything amorous, it was up to me to decline.
Purity was treated as being equal with the sacrifice of Christ Divine.
I am fallen though. Not from my faith,
But in knowing that even though I'm a sinner, I am saved by God's Grace.
That is my only redemption.
Because I am human, I will give into temptation.
I am neither an angel nor an animal.
I'm human and by natured, carnal.
This isn't a license to sin at all.
This is merely humility after a fall.
For many years, I felt trapped on a pedestal.
I was also judgmental.
After going on a journey where I questioned the notion of Purity,
I found myself becoming more free.
Although God has given commands,
I am not responsible for the acts of a man.
Men and women both are to be pure in God's eyes.
But the desire to seek control over this sin has become idolized.
It's become an obsession
That disproportionately falls on women.
I realize it is a sin,
But men and women equally have desires and are only human.
I'm still on this journey and have no regrets at all.
But I know He will be there to pick me up when I fall.
Only Human
This is something that I've written in light of this journey I've taken to unlearn purity culture. The main thing I have learned is that sexuality is healthy and there's nothing wrong with them unless you're a pedo, into necrophilia, or into animals. But other than that, it's fine.

The second thing I've learned is that the church has made an idol out of making sure people (especially women) remain sexually pure. It's a noble cause, but the truth is, 90% of Christians fall sexually. You can lecture someone about abstinence until you're blue in the face. It does. Not. Work!

I hate to be "that girl" who brings her breakups up again and again, but I just noticed a freaking weird coincidence.

I mean, I already told you that the day my last boyfriend broke up with me was the same day my first boyfriend and I got together 5 years prior. Now there's another weird coincidence. The date that I broke up with my first ex the first time was the same day my last ex and I got together!!! Wtf!?
What are the odds!?

So you know how my grandpa just recently died?

Well, we had another death. One of his sons (he adopted my father after marrying my father's mother) from his previous marriage just died.

I wasn't close to him and frankly, I don't think anyone else was. He had a major drinking and drug problem. So it's possible he OD'd. Not only that, my poor grandfather had to take care of him until he himself passed away.

I don't know what to feel. One one hand, I know he was troubled, but on the other hand, he was the black sheep of the family. So idk.

So in this video, she talks about fangirls and why some of them are hated.

She was saying that some of it is due to sexism.

I don't think so. I have been a fangirls for God knows how long and still am at the age of 24, and I can tell you from personal experience why people hate some fangirls.

Laci only touched a small part of it by saying if they're hurting someone, but to expand on that, some fangirls are fucking rabid!

Perfect examples of this include Justin Bieber fangirls and Twilight fangirls.

How many times have we heard about them getting violent on people who don't like Justin Bieber or Twilight?

Not only that, have you seen some of the stupidity that they spew on social media? That's another reason why they're hated! The stupid ones are. It's not because of their gender, it's because of their actions.

Furthermore, Laci fails to touch on some of the hatred associated with fanboys. But of course, because most of them are white and cis, they're privileged and deal with no problems, and therefore, are not worth discussing.

Wrong. All kinds of names have been given to fanboys of all fandoms. Sure, there are stupid, douchey, and creepy fanboys, but not all are like that.

Here are some of the names and other things I've seen people call fanboys:

"Loser."
"Virgin loser who can't get laid."
"Basement dweller."
"Faggot"
"Sucking (insert creator's name here)'s dick!"
"No life"
"Fat fuck"
"Pizza-faced loser."
"Fap master."
"Faps to fictional girls instead of real women"

The list is endless. So while Laci does bring up an interesting conversation that needs to be had, it's flawed. This is just my opinion.

Hey guys! Sorry I wS gone for so long! This move was crazy!! We're still not fully settled in, but we got the big stuff out of the way. Now it's a matter of taking care of the small things.

I like where I am now because it's not as hot as the other place was. My new room is a lot cooler than the old one.
I'm back!
