To each their own. I find them ridiculous but I do have to admit that I love watching toddlers and tiara’s. It’s super hyprocritical, I know.

1886. In William Shakespeare’s play, “All’s Well That Ends Well,” the character Parolles makes an interesting speech about virginity, saying that “Virginity by being once lost may be ten times found; by being ever kept, it is ever lost…To speak on the part of virginity is to accuse your mothers; which is most infallible disobedience…virginity murders itself; and should be buried in highways, out of all sanctified limit, as a desperate offendress against nature. Virginity breeds mites, much like a cheese; consumes itself to the very paring, and so dies with feeding his own stomach. Besides, virginity is peevish, proud, idle, made of self-love, which is the most inhibited sin in the canon. Keep it not; you cannot choose but lose by’t…” What do you think of this?
I think he said it well. Virginity is over-rated. Not saying you should have casual sex all over the place (eventhough if you want to, go ahead) but the whole pureness thing and all that? Meh.
