I am a virgin, and all my life I've been avoiding wearing tampons, taking ovules, putting anything inside of me, in order to protect "my virginity". My family gives too much importance to virginity and they made me think that I had to wait until marriage to pop my cherry. Why though? So my husband can be proud of me? so my husband can respect me as a woman? so my husband doesn't feel disappointed? so he believes he's the one and the last for me? so he thinks I truly love him for letting him pop my cherry?
I don't know what goes through these people's minds, but I know I strongly disagree with their view.
Why men can't have the same celebration we do when we say we are virgins? Why are they looked down? Why do people trust female virgins more? Why do people make fun of male virgins? Virginity is nothing but a way to show your innocence. Men and women can be innocent, why can't people accept that?
The amount of girls who have told me they wanna wait till they get married is big, also... many of these girls are afraid of masturbating. Why though? Why do society makes us believe that masturbation is wrong? Why can't we explore our bodies? I mean, it's my body, I can touch it if I want, is it a sin? Why though? I've been told I can masturbate as long as I don't pop my cherry. Why though? I can pop whatever the hell I want. It's my body. I've been told my chances of getting married depends on how pure I am. Because men marry the good girls.
At this very moment, I couldn't give less fucks about what men wanna marry. My goal in life isn't having a family and cooking for my husband everyday, but many girls dream about this and they see it as their life goal. Why though?
Yeah sure, we all want different things, but I just think it's sad people don't want to go any further.
So, now that I have my goals clear, what am I waiting for? A parade? Nah, that won't happen if I wait for marriage or if I pop my cherry by myself. What's the freaking prize of waiting, can someone explain this to me?
And to don't make this any longer... Girls and guys, virginity is just a word, letting it take an important part of your life is your decision because society shouldn't give a damn about what do you do or you stop doing. Do what makes you happy and remember life is way too short to wait.
