On Purity Rings

Leave a comment

I think I was in the 7th or 8th grade when I first heard about purity rings.  Even at my very naive age, I thought they were complete bullshit.  Really? I thought, you need a ring to remind yourself to not lose your virginity?  I found the whole notion quite silly.  Remaining pure till after marriage is a commitment you make to yourself; wearing a purity ring broadcasts your decision, and it becomes more a commitment to the public rather than one to yourself.  

Purity rings cause a problem to the wearer who changes his/her mind.  Our mindset and decisions and priorities are altered, even if just a tiny bit, on a daily basis.  Suppose you meet someone and decide to go ahead and have sex with them: you must take off your ring first.  Suddenly, the public eye is focused on your ring finger and its lack of a ring!  

In summation, I believe that a commitment does not need a ring, it only needs a determined mind.


Just felt like sharing an opinion.
