I don't see it as all that creepy.  While I am no fan of the whole purity concept or Christianity in general these are just photos of dads with their daughters playing dress up.  While I may think they have a few screws loose I have no doubt these dads love their kids and are doing what they think is best for them.  All the comments implying some sort of sexual thing going on are what is creepy.

ArgusRun: FTFA:  All the photos depict the girls and their fathers, who glow with pride at the thought that their little girl won't be despoiled until someone puts a ring on her finger.

No one there is glowing with pride.

Do you  know what glowing with pride looks like?  Every picture of my father and me, where he is smiling, and happy and we're glad to be there together.  This has all of the creepy tones that one would expect from something where you not only pledge your chastity, but you "give" it to your father for safekeeping until he hands off your hymen to your husband.  Because that's what's going on here.

The serious father pose only works with infants.  They look serious but loving at the absolutely helpless baby and contemplate their new responsibility.  Once they are old enough to talk, you should be happy, loving and joyful with your kids.  Not this.


Ya well I'm sure most of the fathers in these pictures have all the personality and social skills of a bag of wet hair.

And what do they do with their teenage sons? Take them drinking and then go pick up hookers!

Ha! I had the same thought. Mean, but I can't help it.

maybe it's the context, just looks like shots from a father daughter dance.

heidinoele: Boojum2k: heidinoele: /I was always taught that my vagina belonged to me and no one had the right to touch it without my permission.

I hope the rest of your body was also included in that statement, otherwise there's some unfortunate implications there.

Well yeah. They weren't all "your vagina belongs to you, but your boobs are open season."


Just making sure. There are strange people on Fark, and that seemed an oddly specific lesson to be taught.

MatrixOutsider: At least these guys had sex.


Yes, but they're not supposed to be having sex with their own daughters!
 
2014-05-03 11:14:09 AM
Uhm, yeah, Sally? It's me. Look, my dad's making those funny faces at me again. I think he wants to ask me to go to the purity dance.

Bermuda59: And what do they do with their teenage sons? Take them drinking and then go pick up hookers!


The drinking part, yes, but they take their sons to meet the other girls who also posed with their dads, secretly.  It's more of the old way of using daughters for political and financial bargaining tools, somewhat like medieval times.  So the photos serve a purpose of advertising the girl, and here is the guy you have to bribe.  He cuts you a deal at the dealership he owns, you cut him a deal on landscaping because your kids are together.

/If the kids marry, they don't have to stay faithful, because that would be asking too much.

Given the hilarious Baphomet statue I want to see the Church of Satan's response to purity balls.
 
2014-05-03 11:22:53 AM
I know a guy who took both of his daughters to a purity ball despite not being really religious (he's a wedding and funeral go to church type of Christian).  With him I feel it's less pedro-bear activity and more trying to dodge "what comes around goes around".  In his youth he was a giant d-bag who treated sex like a numbers game (I'm assuming that is not unique among teenage boys, not sure, I was homeschooled) according to his wife.  He proudly ruined a lot of girls reputations and broke their heart is the meanest way possible.  His best friend at the time was also a serial date rapist but like everyone else he didn't think the captain of the football team who got the team to state could do anything wrong.  At the time he saw those girls as sluts and cock-teases who had it coming.  He got older, knocked off the d-bag attitude, got married and had two daughters.  Now all of sudden what he did to other father's daughters he doesn't want to happen to his.  Not to mention he is very fearful that they could end up with a guy like his best friend and get raped on date.   He knows better than anyone else how low some boys will sink to get their dick wet.  He sent a lot of girls crying home to their dads, he doesn't want his daughters coming home crying one day to him.  I'm going to go out with the theory that for some of these guys it might be the same.  It's all fun and games to treat girls like notches in your bedpost until you get older and figure out that your daughters are now prime targets.  That's why this guy won't even let his daughters date or be friends with boys, college should be interesting for them.  It might work out for them, I never was allowed to date and my marriage was pre-arranged by father.  After I got out of my marriage and my parent's crazy religion I was able to figure things out.  It's not completely hopeless for them I hope.

Cataholic: BarryTheMasterOfSandwich: Why are religious people so obsessed with sex?

Why are non-religious people so obsessed with religious people?


Because a good number of the religious people are trying to force their beliefs into the lives of the non-religious or otherly religious, and they say things like "ours is a Christian nation" when the founding fathers did not frame the Constitution in that way at all.

madgonad: Nobody has mentioned the flip-side of Purity Balls.

Quinceañera

The generally quite religious and Catholic Hispanic culture actually celebrates a fifteen year old becoming a Woman and being 'open for business'.

This reinforces my belief that Purity Balls are just an extension of the Anglo trend to want to control women at all times. It isn't about God. It is part of this weird system that they try to impose on the nation in which women are possessions - to be passed from one man to another - from birth to grave. Suffrage, careers, education, and birth control are other fronts on their struggle to control women.


You forgot about the coming out party or cotillion the rich white version of the Quincenera

All of the ones where the dads, and especially the ones where both, have their eyes closed are creepy as all get-out. They look like they're thinking about a deep dicking with one another.

Why are non-religious people so obsessed with religious people?


Genuine curiosity over their mentality and motives.

And concern about fundies who wield political power trying to assert their idea of morality, largely based on a bronze age text, on the rest of us.

rbuzby: When Muslims start trying to get their religion taught in schools instead of science, they will get the same crap that Christians get for it.


There are Muslim "charter schools", and yes, I object to them getting public funds every bit as much as I object to Christian schools getting public funds.  There aren't very many Jewish schools getting public funds, but I object to them, too.

Here's one GIS result about purity and boys:

"As we have been given the opportunity to share about the importance of the father daughter relationship through the Father Daughter Purity Ball, we have also been asked how we call our sons to the same standards. Every year we invite the sons to attend the Ball to watch the way their fathers treat young women, and have had many attend with their families because we believe this standard is also important for young men to live out in their lives. But some specific ways we have also chosen to call our sons into manhood has been through ceremony, wise mentors, and modeling manhood to them.


The Manhood Ceremony
We believe that manhood is passed from the masculine to the masculine, and because the defining line between childhood and manhood is often indistinguishable in our world, we wanted to show our sons a clear line they can cross to enter into manhood. We chose to mark their step into manhood at the age of twelve--the same age Jesus first questioned rabbis and discussed the Scriptures in His Father's house--with a celebration called  Brave Heart of a Warrior.The purpose of this celebration is to mark in time, to raise a monument, that testifies that our sons have crossed a threshold that separates boyhood from manhood."

cptrios: Son of Thunder: corronchilejano: I don't see why this is creepy.
(Not that I aprove of the concept)

Me either. We've had enough "bad family photos" threads around here that these ones barely rate a flicker on my creepometer.

It's what perception researchers call top-down processing. Perception is influenced by prior expectations, attitudes, and situational cues. So we start off with the "scary" tag and subby's "creepy" headline, follow it up with TFA's "creepy" headline, and TFA itself loading the reader up with the message that we will now look at creepy Christians looking creepy while at this creepy Christian thing because they're creepy, it's not surprising that a collection of blandly-awkward father-daughter pictures make some farkers say "wow, that's creepy".

The Force can have a strong influence on the weak minded.

I'll give you that the article prepped me for creepiness - but it had nothing to do with the word and everything to do with the "Purity Ball" idea. The  only way these pictures wouldn't have seemed creepy to me would have been if you'd told me they were pictures of dads and daughters at their moms' funerals.


I disagree. Daddy groping his daughter at mommy's funeral somehow makes it twice as creepy as daughter giving her virginity to daddy.

Just an FYI, your friend is still treating the women in his life like objects, he's just swung the pendulum around the other way.

But as with all the best photography, these images speak for themselves - as Magnusson himself says, he hasn't aimed "to belittle or glorify the ceremonies... the interpretation is all up to the eye of the viewer."

Oh please. The photographer is the one who had these people pose like that. Don't tell me that he's not making these people look bad. He chose the pictures to publish.
