Getting to the point (and can’t spend hours on this), organized religion is still actively abusing girls from puberty to adulthood, destroying millions of lives, and America (land of free) is one of the biggest sources of abuse. It is not overt abuse, but repressive and emotional abuse (e.g.: shaming) at worldwide institutionalized levels, and it is all focused to subdue the female and make them a sexual toy for males in most parts of the world (including USA). Yes, I am dropping the reason like an A-bomb, and making is sound like it is everywhere. But it is! Even those readers who are more concerning and open minded to talk about sex are influenced by the sub-conscious effects of organized religion. Now, let me be clear, it is not necessarily the religion itself! The Bible for instance does not once mention masturbation, but it is vilified using loose interpretations, many out of context, some stretched to point of lunacy. Nudity is also vilified, however God made Adam and Eve nude, lived happily in Eden nude with God’s blessing (also often depicted naked). It was only after disobeying God’s rule eating the “fruit of knowledge”, might I add “the original sin”, did trouble and covering up (ie: hiding) begin (eating the fruit is actually a trespass, a far, far more important subject in Christian religion). So what is happening is these (supposedly) religious people are repeating ancient dogma designed to suppress females to be subservient to men, not unlike slaves. Think about it, there is plenty of examples of action harmful to women who where victims, not the criminal. Example 1 from NPR news (I have heard of similar types for years, this is just latest) Brigham Young Students Claim University Punished Rape Victims For Reporting Example 2: Clinical psychologist Peggy Orenstein interview dozens, maybe hundreds of girls, and reports the suppression of girls sexual development. Latest and more personal reports of what has been reported for decades. It is striking (not really) in her interviews with American girls they are far more likely to be coerced into sex at far younger age (14 year old), opposite to European countries where open discussion of sex yet has much delayed sexual activity (17). These 2 topics in last 5 days, but easy to find many more such articles. I don’t have time to continue to this, but will look when I can. Reiterate, suppressing sex education for girls (and boys) is promoting sexual abuse.
