Abstinence Now! - for $15

My friend Noah has brought to our attention an organization relevant to every young adult, be he male or female, gay or straight, muslim or buddhist, black or white. It's called the Abstinence Clearinghouse, and its purpose is to "serve as an association for the abstinence community." Absurdity abounds here. I'll list some of it.
  • The premise that the cause of abstinence is faciliated by a social network.
  • The "Abstinence Online Store," i.e. the assumption that abstinence propoganda is something that people will pay money for rather than something you will have to force down their throats
  • The very idea of "faith-based information" used in product blurbs
Peruse the site for the products. Here are some good ones
The Casualties of Kinsey booklet: "the truth about the founder of spiritual decay in America." Special introductory price timed for the release of the movie whose release it deeply regrets!
God's Gift to Women: "...Eric Ludy challenges you to forsake modern male mediocrity for Christ-built, warrior-poet manhood-manhood that will capture the heart of a woman and change the course of history." In other words, Eric Ludy challenges you to come up with four words that are more mutually contradictory than "Christ-built warrior-poet manhood."
'Keep It' Underwear: "Keep It Underwear aims to approach the serious subject of abstinence in a light-hearted way by letting teens show their statement of choice - even if it's just to themselves." Features cool and tactful "STOP!" signs right on the front.
The Princess And The Kiss: "Contains faith-based content. The Princess and the Kiss is a wonderful fairytale with beautiful illustrations that convey the message of purity with beautiful symbolism. Kit comes with the book, coloring book, crayon and tiara. " I guess everything people teach kids is basically indoctrination right, so why do we have to be so careful anymore? On the plus side, it claims to have faith-based "content" not "information."
