This Video Of A 10-Year-Old Girl Making A Virginity Pledge To Her Father On His Deathbed Creeps Me Out

This Makes Me Uncomfortable

I’m just going to say it: a 10-year-old girl making an abstinence pledge to her dying father on his hospital bed is all kinds of emotionally manipulative.

I thought this YouTube video would be a touching, if extremely sad, occasion for Johnny, a gravely ill father, and his 10-year-old daughter, Nakeol. Gathered by family, they shared an approximation of the little girl’s wedding day that Johnny will not live to see; according to the YouTube description of the video, he is suffering from chronic obstructive pulmonary disease. Nakeol felt “sad knowing he would never be there to walk her down the aisle when she gets married one day.” So the family arranged a small ceremony at the father’s hospital bed. Sweet, right? Grab the tissues.

But then it got  uncomfortable on multiple levels. Nakeol’s father didn’t just give her away; the 10-year-old Nakeol promised her dying father in his hospital bed that she will won’t have sex until marriage. Keep reading »

10 Things Everyone Should Learn In Sex Ed

Hold onto your pearls, pearl-clutchers. Oklahoma’s Tulsa School District has just announced plans to implement an unprecedented sex education policy. Cities like Boston,  NYC, San Francisco and Los Angeles are already teaching comprehensive, medically accurate, LGBTQ-inclusive sex education to public school students. One by one, American cities are announcing a move away from abstinence-only curriculum or worse, nothing at all.

Sex education across the world varies so widely that chances are, you’re having sex with someone who received different sex education from you. Wouldn’t it be great if we could all enter (…heh) sexual and romantic relationships confident in each other’s baseline knowledge?

In an ideal world, this is what we’d all learn before we go forth and spread our love. Or seed. Or legs (I’M SORRY). Keep reading »

Dear The Parents Of SlaneGirl,

I can’t tell you how many conversations I’ve had this week about your daughter. You know her as a baby girl you brought into the world 17 years ago. The Internet knows her as SlaneSlut or SlaneGirl. This week, her full name and photographs of her performing oral sex on two different men at an Eminem concert made their way around the world. They were posted on every social media site you can think of and shared repeatedly (with little regard to the fact your daughter is under 18 and the images technically constitute child pornography). The two young fellas she fellated have mostly enjoyed high fives from the universe. But your daughter? She’s been called a slut, a whore, a dumb bitch — every stinging slur in the book. She was hospitalized this week from from her reaction to all this negative attention.

When I’ve been thinking about your daughter, I’ve really been thinking about you — her parents.  I’ve been thinking about what I would do or say if I were in your shoes, about you could possibly have to say to her about all this. Keep reading »

Indonesia Says No To “Virginity Tests” On Senior High School Girls

todays lady news
  • Indonesian officials have said “thanks, but no thanks” to a proposal to require female high school seniors undergo what is referred to as “virginity testing,” but really means forcing a young woman to prove that she has a hymen. An education official on Sumatra suggested “virginity testing” would discourage premarital sex — apparently because some punishment would befall women who were not found to have a hymen. [ABC News]
  • Spike Lee listened to his critics and added seven films by women to his list of essential films given to NYU grad school students. That’s still not very many women on the entire list. But I guess we’ll take it, Spike. [IndieWire]
  • The anti-street harassment organization Hollaback! launched an app to report abuse to NYC officials in real time. [Feminist.org] Keep reading »

MTV reality show about virgins

There’ve been teen moms. There’ve been “guidos.”  There’ve been rednecks. The next cultural subgroup to get the MTV reality show treatment are a little more, well, innocent: virgins. The hour-long “docu-soap” will follow a group of 18- to 25-year-olds who are remaining abstinent. Some will undoubtedly be tempted and struggling with their abstinence, while I imagine others will give voice to a segment of the population — young, cool and not having sex — who aren’t often portrayed on MTV.

Catarina Migliorini, Brazilian Woman Who Auctioned Virginity, Says She’s “A Victim”

Catarina Migliorini, Brazilian Woman Who Auctioned Virginity, Says She's "A Victim"

The woman who became an Internet sensation by auctioning off her virginity for $780,000 now says that she was tricked and exploited — and that she’s still a virgin.

Catarina Migliorini, a 21-year-old woman from Brazil, told The Huffington Post by email that the highly publicized Internet auction last October, organized by filmmaker Justin Sisely, has turned into a giant fiasco.

“I felt I was a victim … I was misled by Mr. Justin Sisely,” Migliorini said. “I believe he is trying to defraud me and others.” Read more on Huffington Post…

About That Time MTV VJ Kennedy Almost Lost Her Virginity To Michael Jordan…

Former MTV VJ Kennedy (you probably remember her if you were a loyal “Alternative Nation” watcher as I was) makes some outrageous claims in her new memoir, The Kennedy Chronicles.

In a chapter titled “MJ and the VJ” Kennedy recounts a game of dice back in 1995, when she was still a virgin. In the book, she writes about a dinner with Michael Jordan and Russell Simmons at the Bowery Bar. Allegedly, the basketball star broke out some dice and suggested they “play for something,” saying, “If I win, you come back to my hotel room with me tonight.” Kennedy flipped out worrying that Jordan’s potentially large dick might “eviscerate [her] from the inside out” (a valid concern when your hymen is still intact).
