CFW Podcast: Dangerous Purity Culture Messages
Welcome back to Christian Feminism Weekly podcast with Ashley and Charlie!
Charlie and I are chatting about "purity culture". We have no issue with people choosing to save sex for marriage but some of the messaging coming from the church is dangerous.
"It really didn't make sense because in one breath they tell us that it is natural for boys to lust after us [girls] and in the next they tell us that it's our fault that the boys are lusting after us." -Charlie
"I think a lot of these purity culture ideas come down to men being able to regulat women's bodies, regulate women's actions because of the insecurities that some men have... there is an emphasis on supposedly "curbing" men's lust, over women just being comfortable." -Ashley
