I'm sure those poor girls will be getting a taste of dad's purity balls soon after the dance is over with.

By middle of their freshman years in college those chicks are going to be pulling so many trains they'll have job offers on the table from Union Pacific*

Is it just me, or do half of those girls look like they're already pregnant?

Yeah I'm sure the photographer had completely no biased. The article before it is even, "Hey look how creepy this is."

Don't agree with the religious ceremony. But if that 1st picture were taken at the daughters wedding it would look sweet. With the context of the ritual right there it makes them look sick.

At least one of these girls is a latent lesbian so I guess Daddy won't have to worry too much about boys.

Yeah it is creeping me out too. The fact that they have the exact same face, with the surreal incest laden vibe, and that sweeping majestic, oh so empty background. This one is going to stick with me for a while

I agree. Considering she appears to be a pale, soulless ginger, and her father is as white as a sheet of paper; the photographer probably should take lessons instead of applying a generic Adobe filter to all his works,

When you think about the fact that about 40% of child molestation cases are perpetrated by family members, it becomes even more creepy.
 
2014-05-03 09:20:42 AM  
I love how these balls reinforce the idea of girls as Dad'd property until they become hubby's property and are the only ones required to remain "pure". No Moms and sons?

The photos are a bit creepy because they look too much like date photos, not father-daughter fun dance photos.

CSB; I have 2 coworkers with college age daughters, one's a religious nut job, one's a decent guy with hippie leanings,  guess which one's daughter came home after her freshman year pregnant, covered in tats, and with 2 arrests for possession.

Photo editing software.  A simple clone/heal brush could take care of that, considering it's a nice even pattern that is easy to blend in.  So if they came up the back side of the hill, it would have been really easy to cover the tracks.

sonofslacker: Maybe if they tried smiling and stopped using prom poses...just saying


Agreed. Some of those poses reflect a romantic relationship, not a father-daughter relationship. #3, where daddy has pulled daughter close to him from behind, arms clasped around her waist and #4, where daddy has pulled her in close from behind with his hands firmly on her hips, head down nuzzling into her neck.  Those are sensual poses and the serious looks on their faces suggest a certain intensity.  Eww.

Has he explained to these girls what it is they are promising not to do when they take the purity pledge?  Yes or no, either way the results could be hilarious.
 
2014-05-03 09:25:24 AM  
1 - Meh, wouldn't say overly creepy
2 - Well, at least he's not holding her waist
3 - Dear God, he's holding her around the waist...
4 - What the fark, let go of your daughters waists
5 - Whew, back to awkward poses
6 - Seriously, you could move them three feet to the right to avoid the water tower being in the background.
7 - Actually not a bad portrait.
8 - .... wha...
9 - That guy collects doll heads.
10 - They look like they are dating.
 
2014-05-03 09:25:40 AM  
I just realized, I think part of the problem is that most of them appear to be from the wrong century. Apply a sepia filter and some weathering and tell me they're from 1890s Arizona and I'd probably think they were normal.

They'd have to be sitting there for a while to erase any signs of footprints, or one hell of a breeze that would have left them blind from flying sand.  I'm still leaning toward a quick clone brush.

The funny thing is I've known the hippie guy for since his kids were born (we've been bouncing around the  same industry)  you would expect his kids to be like him and his wife, pot smoking party animals.  Nope his teenage daughters are both level headed responsible young people.

the hippie's daughter already had tats and two kids and did not go to college because she dropped out of high school and was following a local band on their limited North American tour.  at least she didn't end up with any possession charges, yet.

What is the occasion of the Clinton photo?  Because Bill has a sort of a sad smile I would associate with daddy's little girl getting married or moving to the other side of the country or something like that.  And Chelsea is happy--none of the girls in the purity photos seem to be.

As for the Cyruses, they're like, they want everyone to know they are sex symbols.  Totally different vibe than the purity prom photos, creepy in a totally different way.

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.

corronchilejano: I don't see why this is creepy.

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".

Oh I could say I need you but then you'd realize
That I want you just like a thousand other guys
Who'd say they loved you With all the rest of their lies
When all they wanted was to touch your face, your hands
And gaze into your eyes

Creepy is the word I use to describe
All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside

 Creepy is the word I use to describe
All the feeling that I have hiding here for you inside
You don't know how many times I've wished that I had told you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could hold you
You don't know how many times I've wished that I could
Mold you into someone who could
Cherish me as much as I cherish you

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.


Here's what's creepy.  When you look at a good number of them, they look like prom photos.   Like they're a couple.  And you go, okay, cute couple.  Or poor kids, prom photos are so awkward.

Then you remember that this is father and daughter, and it suddenly feels dirty.

Pretty much this.  Even as an amateur portraitist, I could tell you that this was a bad way to pose father and teenage daughter.  These would work for a wedding situation, with bride and groom.  Not to much father-daughter.

But then, he also had some issues with exposure, with people's skin tones so blown out that you can't even see their legs against the sand, so I suppose posing might be the least of his technical issues.

Because at the same time someone was writing down what Jesus was saying, another guy was in the back ground putting the trap door on the coffin he was preparing for Jesus.. this was rather distracting as Jesus was attempting to talk over this guy and his hammering.. so goes the story, and I quote the original text of the bible entry here..

"and Jesus said to the people, Hey! quit farking around!..."

through poor translation, the correlation of sex and marriage was created.

I think Barry was referring to the fact that they feel the need to do these elaborate ceremonies and celebrations of these girls promising to not have sex until the magical moment that God says it's ok.  You know, for Jesus and stuff.

Conservatives are obsessed with controlling their daughter's sexual activities and appetites, what consenting adults are doing in their bedrooms/kitchens/garages/sex dungeons, and OMG the gays are trying to get married!  They are far more concerned about sex than anyone else.

Daughter: Yes dad

Dad: So do you want to go to the ball remain a virgin, or burn eternally in a lake of fire since you are not a virgin anymore?

So you're going to tell me Jesus approved of this kind of action, huh. I'm an atheist, but, I was raised Catholic and they failed to mention this part.  Maybe something he said during the Sermon on the Mount, "Go ahead and pork your daughters!  I recommend you start when they're 13, but hey, it's your call.  Anybody want some loaves and fishes?"

/I seemed to have read somewhere, that in ancient Roman culture, dad broke in the daughter and mom had broke in the son.  I only saw this mentioned in one place and I can't remember where, it was a long time ago.  Maybe the 70's.  Could have been a well respected journal like Penthouse Letters.  I was in an "altered state" for most of the 70's.

Ye gods... I've rarely seen more creepy pictures, and that's saying something. I don't think even /b/ could come up with more farked up shiat.

Now I mean, I love my daughter. She's got nearly as much of an invective filled vocabulary as I do, and her big dream in life is to be the person who discovers what dark matter and dark energy really are (and frankly, considering her determination and skill at math / physics at the young age of 14, I have little doubt she may just do it). But I'd be fooling myself if I thought my making her sign some silly piece of paper would keep her from bedding some boy when she decides it's time. Sure, I educate her, sure we've had very frank discussions, and no I don't exactly make it all that easy for her to get a chance to do anything at this age. But when she finally does, I'd like to think she'll do it safely, without guilt or fear, or this barbaric, medieval concept that it makes her "dirty" or "impure".

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.

Eh, it's no so creepy.  This feels more like an excuse for liberal and anti-Christian people to bag on religion.  Still waiting for the anti-Muslim/anti-Islam crowd to show up on Fark, but it's not PC.    Is there a purity ball for Muslim fathers and their daughters?  Or are the daughters even allowed to go to school / leave the house?

It's both funny and sad how far out of their way libtards will go to bag on anything Christian and simultaneously defend Muslims.

They are and on many levels.

Yup, and the second they are out of the house.....

CSB; I have 2 coworkers with college age daughters, one's a religious nut job, one's a decent guy with hippie leanings,  guess which one's daughter came home after her freshman year pregnant, covered in tats, and with 2 arrests for possession.

Is this a trick question? It's the hippie one, amiright?

The funny thing is I've known the hippie guy for since his kids were born (we've been bouncing around the  same industry)  you would expect his kids to be like him and his wife, pot smoking party animals.  Nope his teenage daughters are both level headed responsible young people.

Ha, this hits close to home. We were closer to the hippie stereotype then the religious nut job when our kids were born. They both are fairly responsible young people now and have told me to turn the music down more than once.

Subjecting your children to "Freedom Rock" at high volume is a form of abuse.....


Hey, i was always told you should "turn it up man!"

My dad simply told me, "not too many men want to marry a woman who's easy to get in bed too soon. Don't be a slut, respect yourself and stay away from disrespectful guys". I listened to dad.
Why the need to make such a big todo about this stuff? Sheesh...

So you're basically trying to say purity balls shouldn't be mocked because, hey, at least they're not cutting off little girls' clits? That's setting the bar awfully low.

Now I mean, I love my daughter. She's got nearly as much of an invective filled vocabulary as I do, and her big dream in life is to be the person who discovers what dark matter and dark energy really are (and frankly, considering her determination and skill at math / physics at the young age of 14, I have little doubt she may just do it). But I'd be fooling myself if I thought my making her sign some silly piece of paper would keep her from bedding some boy when she decides it's time. Sure, I educate her, sure we've had very frank discussions, and no I don't exactly make it all that easy for her to get a chance to do anything at this age. But when she finally does, I'd like to think she'll do it safely, without guilt or fear, or this barbaric, medieval concept that it makes her "dirty" or "impure".

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.

And you're a liar, because we bag on Muslims for being backwards and anti-woman all the time.  Somebody upthread already mentioned them, in fact.  Now, we're not going act like conservatives and spout off about how the dirty camel-jockeys are all evil and out to kill us, but we take our jabs.

What's funny and sad to us is that your first reaction to having something about your religious/political group (and I assume you are one) called out, is to point to another religion that you consider bad and say "look, they do it too!  Why aren't you complaining about them more?"

Regardless of the context (horrible), they are still lousy photos, unless his intention was washed-out vintage color like a 1930's Kodachrome today.

I've only been using lightroom for a month and I can do better than that.

They all look more or less like you would expect purity ball parents and kids to look, he's a control freak and she's repressed already.

Like I said above, he probably made the color balance weird in an attempt to made the tone feel pure, clean, and white.  You know, all that symbolic stuff.  Personally, I think it fails when you are in front of a background that's already so bright and white.  If you are going to use that kind of background, you really can't rely on natural light alone.  Just blows everything out.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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."

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.

Purity Ball Events

The event itself is an evening full of formalities, dinner, and dancing. Typically, after dinner there is a dance to be preformed by Purity Ball members. Following the dance swords are presented and fathers and daughters take a knee beneath the swords; the girls place a white rose at the base of the cross while the fathers quietly recite a blessing. The dancing than resumes, and around every half an hour there is a intermission so that fathers may bless their daughters in front of the crowd. (2, 4)

Positive Affects


Purity Balls give fathers and daughters a chance to have unique bond. It allows young women to take a pledge, which ensures they will be chaste and safe from the harms of premarital sex. Furthermore, it gives these young women a chance to give their faith a purpose and goal. Randy Wilson's daughter, Lauren Wilson believes it was the best decision she has ever made. She does not find it to be an intrusion on her rights as a women or her privacy. (7) In an article from Marie Claire she answers the tough questions that come with the decision to remaining pure until marriage. To read the article click here.

Negative Affects


The negative affects range from person to person. Some girls feel a terrible constraint in such a promise. Feminists tend to believe the purity pledge is an infringement on women's rights, and it is a setback from the achievements, which have allowed women to reach a higher status. Perhaps the most drastic negative connection with Purity Balls is the fact that 90 percent of girls who claim they will remain pure break their promise. (5) In addition, those who oppose the movement claim that it reduces eduction on safe sex for young women and men alike. Shelby Knox is an advent opposer to the Purity movement. She took a pledge when she was younger and speaks out against it's affects in her movie, The Education of Shelby Knox.

Ima4nic8or: 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.


These purity balls are explicitly about sex. No one has to imply that sex has anything to do with them since sex is the entire point.

And yes, it's creepy and implicitly incestual to be so obsessed with your daughter's vagina that you'd make her sign pledges and have a big ceremony about it. Women are not a man's property and those dad's are creepy as fark.

unchellmatt: Ye gods... I've rarely seen more creepy pictures, and that's saying something. I don't think even /b/ could come up with more farked up shiat.

Now I mean, I love my daughter. She's got nearly as much of an invective filled vocabulary as I do, and her big dream in life is to be the person who discovers what dark matter and dark energy really are (and frankly, considering her determination and skill at math / physics at the young age of 14, I have little doubt she may just do it). But I'd be fooling myself if I thought my making her sign some silly piece of paper would keep her from bedding some boy when she decides it's time. Sure, I educate her, sure we've had very frank discussions, and no I don't exactly make it all that easy for her to get a chance to do anything at this age. But when she finally does, I'd like to think she'll do it safely, without guilt or fear, or this barbaric, medieval concept that it makes her "dirty" or "impure".


That's awesome. Wish all dads were like you.

That's another element of creepy about these purity balls, though. Apart from the horrifying daddy incest angle. If the daughters are taught to think sex outside of marriage makes them dirty, and only allowed when their bodies "transfer ownership" from daddy to husband, these young ladies are ripe to blame themselves and fail to report it if they get raped. Especially if an older man or someone in a position of power (like the pastor) does the raping.

The funny thing is I've known the hippie guy for since his kids were born (we've been bouncing around the  same industry)  you would expect his kids to be like him and his wife, pot smoking party animals.  Nope his teenage daughters are both level headed responsible young people.


Similarly, I was raised Catholic, but once I hit high school and started to have serious questions about my orientation and about civil and medical rights, I decided the Church could go EABOD.  It's been amusing (and a little scary) to watch as all my heavily religious peers/former classmates on Facebook, invariably, got pregnant before they got married.

Sure, it's much better to teach your daughter that an intact hymen means she's a "good" girl and highly sought after as a commodity when she hits marriage age. Here's an idea,stop equating a female's worth by how many sexual partners they've had. You know,like we do with men.

And THAT's the one that will live on the internet forever...

I showed the wife the pictures with no introduction or explanation. She was struggling to determine context and pronounced them "odd." I told her to ignore the exposure and explain why they were odd. She thought many were father daughters and some were couples but she noted that they all seemed so sad. Yet they were dressed up for a wedding.

Once I told here they were all father daughter combos she looked through them again and pronounced  several  "inappropriate."

So there's an unbiased view from a conservative but not particularly religious female.

Just an FYI, your friend is still treating the women in his life like objects ...

Oh I agree, that why it bugs me but neither myself or his wife can make him see that.  He does have a son and my friend's issues do extend to him.  On the plus side he has drilled into his son's head to get clear consent and if the girl hesitant to back off and play it on the safe side.  On the other hand a lot of the stuff he hears from his dad about the evil of teenage boys to his sisters I think is affecting him.  The boy is the middle child, just turned 15 and I think it's starting to get into his head that his father sees his peers as the scum of the earth which cannot be helping his self esteem.

And THAT's the one that will live on the internet forever...

I showed the wife the pictures with no introduction or explanation. She was struggling to determine context and pronounced them "odd." I told her to ignore the exposure and explain why they were odd. She thought many were father daughters and some were couples but she noted that they all seemed so sad. Yet they were dressed up for a wedding.

Once I told here they were all father daughter combos she looked through them again and pronounced  several  "inappropriate."

So there's an unbiased view from a conservative but not particularly religious female.


Being married to you must be extravagantly fun.

oryx: 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.


He also chose to manipulate the colors to give it that washed out look with a very cold color palette.  And the poses are stilted  in a way that even the most anal retentive people don't normally maintain.  When I do portraits I am always, constantly trying to get people to relax and smile a bit when they 'clam up' in front of the lens.

He's a pro, he knew the shots he was taking and the effect he'd get.

Or maybe sick f*cks think looking solemn while they make a production out of their own refusal to accept their children's inevitable sexuality is a sign of maturity.

They are and on many levels.

Yup, and the second they are out of the house.....

CSB; I have 2 coworkers with college age daughters, one's a religious nut job, one's a decent guy with hippie leanings,  guess which one's daughter came home after her freshman year pregnant, covered in tats, and with 2 arrests for possession.

Is this a trick question? It's the hippie one, amiright?

The funny thing is I've known the hippie guy for since his kids were born (we've been bouncing around the  same industry)  you would expect his kids to be like him and his wife, pot smoking party animals.  Nope his teenage daughters are both level headed responsible young people.

Most of my friends who were raised in non-religious households are the most well-adjusted and successful among my group.


Of course you're right.  In my case, I was raised somewhat religious.  I say somewhat because my upbringing was by "old-school" Catholics.  Go to church on Sunday and pretty much don't talk about it the rest of the week.  I mean if you're gonna be religious, this is the way to go.  A ritual performed on Sunday, done!  (of course the fact that I'm no longer religious and I declared my non-belief to my parents when I was 18 has nothing to do with it - they weren't terrifically happy but they accepted it)

unchellmatt: Ye gods... I've rarely seen more creepy pictures, and that's saying something. I don't think even /b/ could come up with more farked up shiat.

Now I mean, I love my daughter. She's got nearly as much of an invective filled vocabulary as I do, and her big dream in life is to be the person who discovers what dark matter and dark energy really are (and frankly, considering her determination and skill at math / physics at the young age of 14, I have little doubt she may just do it). But I'd be fooling myself if I thought my making her sign some silly piece of paper would keep her from bedding some boy when she decides it's time. Sure, I educate her, sure we've had very frank discussions, and no I don't exactly make it all that easy for her to get a chance to do anything at this age. But when she finally does, I'd like to think she'll do it safely, without guilt or fear, or this barbaric, medieval concept that it makes her "dirty" or "impure".


about halfway through this I was sure it was going end as a troll  with her dating a black guy. I think I need to take a break from the internet for a bit since it has clearly jaded me:(

on a serious note, I think a big part of being a good parent is setting your kid up to be an independent adult. parents that raise their daughters to be a good wife are failing miserably at this, worse than parents who financially support their kids beyond the age of 20.

I'll tell you why I can get obsessed with religious people.  Because my non-belief doesn't creep into their lives at all, but their beliefs are creeping into my life on a daily basis.  There is not one thing I can say to a religious person other than telling them that I am Atheist, that makes them think of my non-belief, yet just about everyday, some one of religion says something that makes me have their religion in my head.
I can't not avoid religion, yet they don't have to avoid my non-belief.

Pretty obvious.  His daughter has big tits and he has grabbed one (almost in a nipple pinching position) and is joking around about chopping her boob off.  I get it, LOL.

Would've been funnier family fun if she was spread eagle and he had one leg up over his shoulder and was doing that to her crotch, because, the whole "ax wound" euphemism and all. Would've made more sense.  Who chops off a boob.

Unenlightened people are awkward... due to lack of life experience, and lack of insight.

Farkers [most] are quite painfully awkward, its like they don't have the foggiest how this family stuff works.
Maybe they do live in basements... i always thought that was a joke, or meme...but now, i see the naked truth.

Those portraits are awkward because of the formality & ritual laid onto what should be Instinct.
If family life is to be successful, and "breeding" is a big part of that; then it is up to the commander in chief of the Family to ensure intelligent matching.

Raising kids is very serious!
Failing to raise good kids is a disaster for society.
If humans want to be the arbiters of natural [genetic] selection, then there is a lot of work ahead.

Maybe you can understand it like this;
Hugging one's daughter is like licking your kittens...
not personal at all, its actually a chore.

Aaand, after years of marriage,
the licking is always a chore.
 
2014-05-03 02:41:30 PM  

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.


The only piece of information you need to find these photos creepy is that they're father-daughter. Even without that context, these photos were taken in a style usually used for prom and wedding couples. The age difference would therefore tend to creep most people out because the style suggests they're sexually involved. You know. Because they look like prom and wedding couples.

Knowing that this is a Christian "purity ball" fixating on the high sexual trade value of a young girl's virginity acts only as a multiplier of the creepiness which inheres in these photos. These are creepy photographs of creepy fundamentalist men doing creepy fundamentalist things with their pasty fundamentalist daughters.

Phineas: Eh, it's no so creepy.  This feels more like an excuse for liberal and anti-Christian people to bag on religion.  Still waiting for the anti-Muslim/anti-Islam crowd to show up on Fark, but it's not PC.    Is there a purity ball for Muslim fathers and their daughters?  Or are the daughters even allowed to go to school / leave the house?

It's both funny and sad how far out of their way libtards will go to bag on anything Christian and simultaneously defend Muslims.


We're not talking about Muslims right now, that's where there's no anti-muslim crowd in here (other than you, apparently.)  We're talking about creepy christians.  Pull it together, man.

Pyramid Peak in Washington. Highest spot you can hike to with a trail (8200 feet). My Dad was a lookout here in 1944. My brother, daughter and I hiked here in 2010 to honor his memory.

strife: I never saw or heard of these things happening during my time as a Christian (I saw a bunch of other warped shiat though). I think sex-ed classes and/or a heart-to-heart talk would probably be more emotionally and intellectually honest.


Emotional and intellectual honesty aren't things religion does very well.

unchellmatt: Ye gods... I've rarely seen more creepy pictures, and that's saying something. I don't think even /b/ could come up with more farked up shiat.

Now I mean, I love my daughter. She's got nearly as much of an invective filled vocabulary as I do, and her big dream in life is to be the person who discovers what dark matter and dark energy really are (and frankly, considering her determination and skill at math / physics at the young age of 14, I have little doubt she may just do it). But I'd be fooling myself if I thought my making her sign some silly piece of paper would keep her from bedding some boy when she decides it's time. Sure, I educate her, sure we've had very frank discussions, and no I don't exactly make it all that easy for her to get a chance to do anything at this age. But when she finally does, I'd like to think she'll do it safely, without guilt or fear, or this barbaric, medieval concept that it makes her "dirty" or "impure".


Let me just say your daughter sounds wonderful.
I love her ambition. I hope she succeeds. For Science!

Congrats on doing a good job.
I have a little math lady, too, she's 13. She's smart as a whip and tough as nails. I hear ya on the invectives- I'm terrible- I guess if one is going to be a bad example, you could do much worse!
My parents told me nothing about sex- I was determined to be the opposite, so we've had frank discussions as well.
I just want her to be informed.

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

I'll tell you why I can get obsessed with religious people.  Because my non-belief doesn't creep into their lives at all, but their beliefs are creeping into my life on a daily basis.  There is not one thing I can say to a religious person other than telling them that I am Atheist, that makes them think of my non-belief, yet just about everyday, some one of religion says something that makes me have their religion in my head.
I can't not avoid religion, yet they don't have to avoid my non-belief.


I don't see a bunch of religious people proselytizing, or mocking someone who doesn't believe as they do, in this thread.

1. Sex
2. Drugs
3. Music
4. Religion

Photo editing software.  A simple clone/heal brush could take care of that, considering it's a nice even pattern that is easy to blend in.  So if they came up the back side of the hill, it would have been really easy to cover the tracks.

Or the wind just blew and they have not been moving around a lot.

I don't understand why none of those fathers look proud of their daughters. I mean, since their daughters signed the pledge and all, shouldn't their fathers be proud that their daughters are attempting to taking their values seriously?

#6 doesn't look so bad. It looks like he is comforting his daughter and that she is his baby that is growing up.

#7 looks like a photo taken on Easter Sunday. It isn't bad but the girls look kind of grumpy because the material on the dresses look scratchy.

Even though I think the idea of purity balls is silly, it seems to me like it should be considered more of a joyous celebration.

All I did was a Bing image search for awkward father daughter. It was one of the first ones to pop up.

I still can't grasp what the fark is going on.

Pretty obvious.  His daughter has big tits and he has grabbed one (almost in a nipple pinching position) and is joking around about chopping her boob off.  I get it, LOL.

Would've been funnier family fun if she was spread eagle and he had one leg up over his shoulder and was doing that to her crotch, because, the whole "ax wound" euphemism and all. Would've made more sense.  Who chops off a boob.

I agree that parents (if both are still available for the child or children) have what could be stressful, easy, and everything in-between job of not only explaining the basics of maturing and becoming sexually active.  I don't think this is a very smart way to go...

I guess, if you, as a parent, want to basically have a pact/contract with your child about this matter, I guess it's probably not the worst thing to be connected with other families doing the same thing - as it can provide advice, discussion, support, an outlet, etc. for both the adults, and the children (or teens in these pictures).

My gypsy parents let me watch TV with them growing up, and I have a very young memory (7? 8?) of watching some silly, animated take on sperm fertilizing an egg (HBO's late night animation block, I think)  - which my parents were lol'ing at, and, hell, it was animated, so I tried to follow along, none too successfully.  My immediate inquiries led to the rather scientific, and unabashed "sex-talk"..... and I was 7 or 8.  It worked well enough, and of course, many other factors ended up shaping my views as I grew up.  We were Lutherans then and I did the Church/Sunday school thing until I was 11 (I then started studying world religions for years and landed on Taoism @ 17-today).  It sure wasn't graceful, but it all worked out!

In summary, if your parents participate in your life, but don't have a totalitarian or dictator-like, and presented, need to control your life, things generally should turn out okay.   So, I can't tell if this is a moment of dedicated participation?  Or a real, rather unhealthy, bid for control?

JSTACAT: Unenlightened people are awkward... due to lack of life experience, and lack of insight.

Farkers [most] are quite painfully awkward, its like they don't have the foggiest how this family stuff works.
Maybe they do live in basements... i always thought that was a joke, or meme...but now, i see the naked truth.

Those portraits are awkward because of the formality & ritual laid onto what should be Instinct.
If family life is to be successful, and "breeding" is a big part of that; then it is up to the commander in chief of the Family to ensure intelligent matching.

Raising kids is very serious!
Failing to raise good kids is a disaster for society.
If humans want to be the arbiters of natural [genetic] selection, then there is a lot of work ahead.

Maybe you can understand it like this;
Hugging one's daughter is like licking your kittens...
not personal at all, its actually a chore.

Aaand, after years of marriage,
the licking is always a chore
.


Sounds like the yenta did a terrible job.  It's supposed to be a joy as long as you can keep fit.

queen biatch of the universe: 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.


Sounds like you must have some crazy stories.

CSB; I have 2 coworkers with college age daughters, one's a religious nut job, one's a decent guy with hippie leanings,  guess which one's daughter came home after her freshman year pregnant, covered in tats, and with 2 arrests for possession.

Is this a trick question? It's the hippie one, amiright?

The funny thing is I've known the hippie guy for since his kids were born (we've been bouncing around the  same industry)  you would expect his kids to be like him and his wife, pot smoking party animals.  Nope his teenage daughters are both level headed responsible young people.

Kids tend to strive to be different than their parents. My parents were kinda square, i was wild, and my oldest daughter is in the army, lol.

I think she helped scare me into keeping my virginity until after high school by constantly encouraging me to go out and get laid. When i was 14.

Yeah, I know they were a myth.  There have been warrior women, Boudica  comes to mind.  But a straight up women-dominated warrior culture was a scary story to tell children, and future cultures used it as an example as to why women should be controlled.

What I fund the most creepy is that these men truly think that they can... or should... control the sexuality of another human being, even if that human being is their offspring. Being taught that your body and sex are dirty at 10 years old and that your father is the only man you can trust doesn't bode well for healthy future relationships

One more thing... where the fark are the "Purity Ball" pictures of fathers with their sons? Seems that the guys are at least half responsible for whatever happens.

In some organizations, the sons are invited to observe (so they can "learn how to treat a young lady").  There are other programs for boys that don't involve any kind of dress up dance.

I'm not religious, but based on the little bit of internet research I did, the mother plays no part.  The father takes the daughter to the purity ball, and the father also passes on the duties of masculinity to the son.  Not at a dance, something else where there may or may not be pictures.

I think the fundamental principles of it all are screwed up, but I don't besmirch them trying to raise their children in a way they think is healthy and right.  I don't agree with their methods or beliefs, but kudos for being involved with your child's life, at least.

There's involved and then there's "involved". Not all involvement is psychologically healthy.

poodebunker: My dad simply told me, "not too many men want to marry a woman who's easy to get in bed too soon. Don't be a slut, respect yourself and stay away from disrespectful guys".


Why does "respecting yourself" always seem to revolve around doing what other people want to do?

I like to fark. I make sure to select casual sex partners on whether or not they treat me with courtesy and decency.

A man having casual sex with a consenting woman isn't disrespecting her. He's only disrespecting her if he looks down on her for enjoyment of casual sex, and if he does so, he's a hypocrite for his double standards.

My sluttiness does not detract from my humanity and my capacity to be a decent person, and anyone who thinks it does isn't worth marrying in the first place.

queen biatch of the universe: 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.


Or, he could, you know, maybe teach boys not treat women like shiat and not lie to them to get them in bed and not to rape them and teach girls to watch out for douchebags and fight the rape culture that allowed him and his buddy to do these things  instead of justifying his slut-shaming by adding a Christian veneer to it. He's still got a douchebag attitude, now its just been whitewashed.

Teaching girls that their fundamental self worth is tied up in whether or not a cock has been in them is misogynist, disgusting, and sick.

Period.

Rape is not about sex, it's about power. Pay attention.
