I still havent read anything but you think it's wrong and your religious. I haven't heard that it causes injuries or that is will cause one to lose limbs or cause the economy to fall or that sex causes gas prices to go up. I've heard nothing so concrete. Just that it shouldn't be done because you and your religion say so.Who's hiding behind religion? My religion is apart of my being, as I stated; I don't hide behind it as if I'm afraid to say what I believe, it makes up my belief!
Just because it's not a religious forum does not mean I should halt my views at every other thread; these threads are free for all to post in, whether their view is religious or not.
Saying that it's only a problem in religious venues sounds as if that's only being used to excuse the behavior from being wrong. So because people who state they have religion have a problem with it but within secular venues it's okay, that makes the secular correct? Based on what? Because they aren't religious? Now that's just simply stating bias and holds no water or "factual foundation".
Many people don't respect themselves in many different ways, but this was about virginity and why it does matter, so all else isn't necessary to state.
I've stated nothing about gold standards; you brought that in because of how you perceive my answer.
Some people "just like" a lot of stuff, but it doesn't make it right. Some people just like drugs, but isn't that disrespect to the body? Liking it has nothing to do with whether one has respect to the body.
If one runs all of the time, knowing that their legs are suffering for it, then that's lack of respect to the body as well.
No one is judging you or anyone, but the deed of promiscuity is wrong. People take it personally when the deed they commit is condemned, but they shouldn't. Aren't people more than sex? So why should they take fornication being viewed as bad as a swipe to themselves when they could give it up at anytime? Again, I've not made myself a judge of people, I speak on the actions. I've done many wrongs, and have been no less hard on my own actions for where I've lacked respect to my own body.
And yes, it's adults making conscious decisions, but the decision made isn't always right.
