I caught this when I was at my dad's house the other night hanging out (we don't have a t.v. at home) and as I was channel surfing my little sister said "oh oh go back! You HAVE to see this, it's totally creepy and weird!"

It was BIZARRE! The way the girls spoke to the camera people was the way that people in cults sound when they're interviewed. Totally off the wall, incohearent, not necesarily factual answers. Inability to reason. Ick. The dads... oh my god. If my dad ever acted like that I'd have reported him

The whole thing is just wrong on so many levels.

This show is just another excuse to put men on a pedestal. And sons don't need purity balls as long as the girls have them. You see, if a boy has sex, then it is clearly the girl's fault for seducing him in the first place, duh
(Bolding is mine)

Oh, yeah! THAT makes sense...

And just think about how many girls a single boy could "deflower"! :

I liked the whole "I don't want them to get cancer" bs.

And the "it's in the 10 commandments" "which one is that?" "ummmmm"

I DO have to give a TON of credit to that interviewer!

ETA: The friend I watched it with (also a single mother) and I were both creeped out with the seemingly pedophile-like actions of the fathers.

And we were equally creeped out with the "A boy asked and we both decided he wasn't the one for me" comment! Both my A$$!! :

Anyone else know about the "oral sex isn't REALLY sex" thing that's been going on among teens for a few years now?
I was reminded of that epsiode too!

I don't feel comfortable with the idea of purity pledges and balls....but to each their own.

But I do agree with part of this statement it should be the mom talking to the girls. It should be both parents. Sometimes one parent is more comfortable. You know what I don't think the child being embarrassed by opossite gender really matters....My dh embarrasses the kids as much as I do. We both state and teach our beliefs about sex. My 8 year old dd about died when masterbation got brought up and I explained it to her....she would have been just embarrassed if it was her dad talking about it.
