That seems a bit creepy to me.

Brandishing a gold ring, Ron continues: 'This is just a reminder that keeping yourself pure is important. So you keep this on your finger and from this point you are married to the Lord and your father is your boyfriend, and you know what you do with a boyfriend, right? Just remember, your mother doesn't have to know.'

Purity balls, in which a girl pledges to remain 'pure' until her wedding day, symbolically 'marries' God, and promises her father that she will remain a virgin until she's a wife, have become a phenomenon in America, now taking place in 48 out of the 50 states.

The balls resemble giant wedding ceremonies, with the girls - all around the age of 12 - wearing white gowns and dancing with their fathers who promise to 'protect' their daughter's chastity.

During the ceremony, fathers present their daughters with purity rings, which they wear to symbolise their commitment to virginity.


What the f*ck? I've daughters and there is no way in hell I'd do this to them. I remained 'pure' until I was married and it was stupid- I see no reason for it. I have tried to be honest with my children and teach them to be responsible, educated and aware of what is going on around them.

Future Church forum post:

"So apparently I was not supposed to put Ben-Wa balls up my daughter's hooha to protect her from the negro seed. My bad. The church's document was vague and confusing, and now she has started acting erratically and I can't get them out.Can we put together some IKEA directions for this procedure?"

That is an understatement,

This is when the girls are twelve?  I give it about two years before it's out the window.

/preacher's daughters were always the most fun

What's the big deal? I have purty balls.

The more daddy puts her pussy on a pedestal, the more she's gonna come apart when she realizes it's just another smelly twat.

The more you obsess on your daughters virginity, the more farked up she'll be in high school and college.

Indeed. On a variety of levels.

So we're still on the idea that a girl's worth is based on her ability to provide offspring that are demonstrably from the man who owns her.

Found a couple things while poking around google looking for some info on which denominations do this weird shiat:

1. Quote from another site: "... 88 percent of those who pledge abstinence at these Purity Balls wind up breaking their pledge and having sex before marriage, according to a study by Peter Bearman, the Chair of Columbia University's Department of Sociology, and Hannah Bruckner of Yale. "

2. This Randy Wilson who invented the concept is the National Field Director for the Family Research Council, so he's a crony of James Dobson and Tony Perkins and he wears a ridiculous toupee. He gives his daughters names like "Khrystian" and "Jordyn" which violates one of my many pet peeves.

Disturbing for a lot of different reasons.
 
2014-03-21 01:28:10 PM  
I thought purity balls were those things you put in your shoes to keep them from smelling

Although I can actually envision (sp?) my husband doing this. He's gone all "born-again Christian" on me recently. It's tough living with him these days.

From the comments:

I assume there isn't an alternative for the boys? Ah of course not, males aren't to be owned and controlled, just the girls then.

Thats just ........weird. I wonder if there is a guy out there that has a bunch of purity rings on a necklace that he gets from girls after he deflowers them. Wouldnt suprise me a bit.

"It's only sex if..."  If one prefaces their intimate activities with that line, it's sex.

With names like that, I'm sure their pet peeves have been violated plenty.

No creepier than, say, an orgy in a funeral parlor.

Yeah, these are a creep-fest... You know, Daddy/Daughter dances are one thing. A father pledging to protect his kids is fine, too. I see no problem with THAT part, if they stopped there, but the whole next step is just creepy as hell. When your daughter pledges her virginity to you to "safeguard", it's stopped being about a bond between parent and child, and started in on the Oedipal angle.

I dated two girls who grew up in that sort of environment - pledges of virginity, believed sex before marriage was a one-way trip to hell, daddy issues and so on.

They were both into some seriously freaky and messed up shiat when it came to sex.

Well, of course.  Boys will be boys, after all.

Purity Balls would be an awesome band name.

So does the purity ring mean she's OK with doing butt stuff?
 
2014-03-21 01:33:24 PM  
Every single aspect of this is royally farked up.
 
2014-03-21 01:33:25 PM  
Didn't the only person the Lord had a son with get knocked up while she was married to someone else?

We deserve everything that's coming to us, America.

My daughter is 12. no way in hell i'm doing this creepy shiat.
 
2014-03-21 01:34:49 PM  
The adults who advocate this sort of thing are terrible people.  They are setting these girls up for a lifetime of self-doubt and misery.  So what happens if a "pure" girl gives into her normal biological urges or is raped?  She is no longer pure, right?  "Sorry Sally, you no longer clean.  You have really disappointed your Mom and I and now we can no longer show our faces at church.  Thanks a lot."

These people should be deported to Saudi Arabia.  They would fit in just fine there.

I got big purity balls.  But they've got the biggest purity balls of them all.

I'm more interested in women with a NuvaRing.

The Daily Fail always puts this weird stuff up and say "It's sweeping America!"
No. No it's not.

Technically, she wasn't even married when she got knocked up.

girls giving their virginity to their father to safeguard until marriage

"It's OK sir, you can keep your daughter's virginity; I'm just interested in the box it came in."

Um, this might have been a news story a decade ago.  Are you guys really hearing about this for the first time?  One of the pictures in TFA is dated 2007, and the first father-daughter ball was held in 1998.

It was just the one time, it was consensual, it is a great stress reliever and the DVD sales offset the cost of the funeral.
