Sample text

Man, she rocks! They were utterly disdainful of girls who had different standards. “Yeah, Rachel Edmonds is really hot, but she's a total prude, man. She's one of those pure, religious girls. ” They burst into obnoxious laughter at Rachel's ridiculous reluctance to lose her virginity. My shock had reached its boiling point, and I found myself wishing I could rush over to them and demand an explanation for their debased behavior. But at that moment, the overhead bell squawked shrilly, and the guys quickly disbanded, leaving one another with a round of smooth high fives and fist bangs.

The next season of my life was the most hellish I have ever experienced. My desperate searching for a prince who would cherish me forever had become my demise. I had listened to the voice of the culture and become the young woman it convinced me to be, hoping that the result would be the discovery of a happily-ever-after tale. Instead, my heart was mercilessly trampled time and time again. My body was used for the animalistic gratification of guys who were as far from being gallant knights as Gumby is from being the Incredible Hulk.

Almost every young woman I meet has, to some degree, bought into this same lie. Like I did, many young women willingly offer their hearts, their emotions, or their bodies to anyone who seems like he might somehow fulfill that deep longing within—only to be used and violated and left holding shattered dreams. Others starve themselves or willingly become sex toys in the hope that, by doing so, they might be found beautiful and valuable. Some simply give up all hope and decide it is not worth trying anymore—they plunge into depression or drivenness and keep the pain buried under the surface for as long as they possibly can.
