    When Kylie was 13, her parents took her on a hike in Lake Tahoe, Calif. "We discussed what it means to be a teenager in today's world," she says. They gave her a charm for her bracelet--a lock in the shape of a heart. Her father has the key. "On my wedding day, he'll give it to my husband," she explains. "It's a symbol of my father giving up the covering of my heart, protecting me, since it means my husband is now the protector. He becomes like the shield to my heart, to love me as I'm supposed to be loved."

    she is going to san jose st. on a volleyball scholarship which i believe is a party school. i give her virginity a semester...

    The fathers need to learn that they don't own their daughter's sexuality. It's not the father's to give to another man.

    How come they never obsess about their son's purity like they do their daughters?

    Fathers taking an interest in their children's lives. Fathers trying to be good role models for their daughters. Fathers teaching their children to make wise sexual decisions....

    Yeah, real creepy [​IMG]

    They need to, but what (from this article) suggests that they don't do the same for their sons?

    They are not spending thousands of dollars on a party celebrating their virginity is one...

    I think there's a way to teach self-respect, restraint, and moral values without turning virginity into a fetish. This isn't it. Yes, it is creepy for a dad to be so focused on being the Holder of the Key to the Daughter's Almighty Hymen.

    Maybe they should have purity balls for their sons called Blue Balls.

    These dads are, like, totally losers. I mean, like that is stupid, cuz like the girls are gonna have sex anyway. What a bunch of kooky Christians.

    Instead of focusing on their daughter's sexual purity they should, like, buy them sexy clothes from Victoria Secrets and, like, other, you know, like sexy stores. OMG HAVE YOU SEE BRITNEY'S NEW MUSIC VIDEO ON TRL?!?! IT IS LIKE SO FUNNY LOL!!

    so far i've won the child lottery. two boys. thank god.

    as for this - this article is creepy. the pictures are creepy +1. good god. teaching a girl self respect and realizing the difference between today's world and the medieval world are all very important things.

    virginity isn't as prized anymore as it used to be, and you know what? that's fine. people can learn a lot from sexual relationships - the key is that you don't want your daughter boning the football team her freshmen year in highschool. a good way to prevent that is to teach her self respect and teaching her the importance of intellect over image. do that, and your kid will be well along the path to a positive self-esteem.

    fathers of daughters need to realize that their princess will, at some time or another, probably have sex and regret it. IT WILL HAPPEN. best thing to do is not turn it into the end all be all. it's dramatic enough for a girl to lose her virginity without all the hullabaloo from the dad which takes it into the stratosphere.

    I'm talking sideways here but in my experience this sort of nonsense leads young women to believe that the vagina is tradeable commodity. Vaginas should be shared.

    That said my opinion will become immediately invalid should I ever have a daughter.

    Not sure if I agree with these purity balls, but giving them the name of a bad porn actress doesn't seem like a good thing.

    Talking to your kids about keeping themselves pure... not freaky.

    Calling said events.... 'purity balls'. FREAKY.

    Am I the only one here with a problem with that adjective?

    If you have a problem with your daughter becoming sexually active before marriage, that's fine. There are plenty of reasons to have such a problem (e.g., religious reasons, safety concerns, simple gross-out factor). I personally don't think those reasons are sufficient for me actively to prevent my kid from having sex before marriage, but to each his own.

    But regardless of what position we may have on the issue, what century are we living in when we couch a woman's sexuality in terms of "purity" and "impurity"? I mean, if your little girl becomes impure, aren't you supposed to take her to the gates of the city (or the outer loop, perhaps) and stone her to death?

    Seriously--what. the. ****? Purity? I don't ask that everyone enter the 21st century. I just ask that you leave the 19th behind.

    purity balls soon to be followed by public stonings. they'll stone their daughters to death for dishonoring the family. [​IMG]

    i do find it fascinating that segments of different religions are getting more fundamental and bat **** crazy. maybe it's a natural reaction to the seediness that's become of popular culture. i blame rap music.
