-Emily Timbol-Reeves points out evangelicalism's overemphasis on virginity. Money quote:
While there isn't anything wrong with encouraging young people to wait, there is something wrong when that encouragement is done by telling them how ruined their lives will be, and how much they've "lost" if (and most likely when) they do mess up.
