I can’t think of a better word than ‘creepy’ to describe how this article about ‘purity balls’ makes me feel. It’s just... so wrong!

I think "disturbing" works pretty well too.

thing that gets me is that the *same* people who would actually take part in that drek are the folks who would point fingers at others and say that things like taharas hamishpachah is so devaluing, disempowering and "dark ages"...

I'm not sure that these people think that 'Dark Ages' is a bad thing...

I am sure that then end game (so to speak) will be spanking.

Oh, so scary. I'd actually heard about these dances on a Frontline report a few years ago. The woman who thought them up is the type of fanatic that scares the crap out of me. Just listening to her talk gave me the willies.

I couldn't get past the second page without gagging. These people should be worrying about real problems in the world instead of keeping their daughters "pure," whatever the fuck *that* means. Score one for misogyny.
