I know this community has been dead for over 7 years now, but I just came across an entry in my personal journal that reminded me of its existence. And I couldn't help wondering, while looking over the old entries and laughing at some of the comments and posts, if any of the virgins we snarked back in the day had lost or "gifted" their virginity. And if so, if their entry into the world of sex was worth the wait and as wonderful as they imagined it would be. I think at least one of the prime "victims" for mocking finally got married, so congrats to him. But some of the others...I'm not so sure. I am sad to see that the community that brought us the most snark worthy material seems to have died off as well, though it lasted much longer than this community did.
Live Journal itself seems to have gone by the wayside as more and more people have joined facebook and twitter. But I'm glad I never thought to delete this community because it reminds me of the good old days when LJ was still in its prime.

For once I didn't have to go to an LJ community to find snark-worthy material...this time I found it in my own flesh and blood! And boy...do I hate my gene pool right now.
My cousin and I were talking, he's a senior in high school and is currently writing a speech to his school to make an "pro-abstinence" day at school, Valentine's Day to be exact. During the course of our conversation it came out that I was still a virgin, and the exclamations of "good for you" and "that's awesome!" started coming out. I half expected him to pat me on the head, were we not on IM.
I haven't heard the results of his speech, but I left the computer shaking my head. It wasn't so much the idea that he was going to do the speech, though I did wonder how on earth we were related, but just the pure pride he has in being a virgin and saving himself for marriage. I don't get it, I'm a virgin...it's just the way I was born and it just hasn't changed. It's not some special gift I was given, everyone was born one, I don't consider myself special or different because I haven't "lost" or "given up" or whatever term is popular this week for no longer being a virgin. And most people I've talked to who have had sex tell me they don't know what all the fuss was about, even ones that made a fuss about it beforehand.

A virgin named ... stiffie?
Howdy, kids. Just joined; happy to note my beloved aberrantvirtue
is a member here. It's a small eworld after all.
Anyway, please see this post
ASAP if you haven't yet. It is A+.
My favourite part?
As for me? I'm madly in love. Of course with God, but with my future husband, as well, whomever he may be. I've been writing him letters pouring my heart out to him, and it's been such a blessing to me. I know that when I meet him face to face (or if I already know him, when the time is right), I will be so in love with him and even more motivated to save my all for him.
It actually made me cry a little. Well, OK, because I was laughing so hard.

Hey, you guys. I hope I'm not trollin' on your territory or anything...but I just wanna let you guys know that I banned that Raven55 dicklick off of my sluts_are_ew community...he totally turned my community upside down...and not that its really that big a deal--it IS only the internet--it kinda pissed me off. Oh well. I don't really know why I'm posting here.

The part I don't get
The part of the common virgin attitude that I don't understand is the whole "gift" that is implied when one loses their virginity.
I see the phrases a lot. "I want to give this.." "This is a gift I'll share.."
I don't see virginity as a gift to be given to someone.. that's what multiple screaming orgasms are for. Isn't really good sex a "gift" as well?
There just seems to be an underlying unspoken thread to comments like this. That giving your virginity to someone is somehow better than sharing mutual sexual pleasure with a person.
Bah. It's like people expect that sex will be this chore once they start having it. I say, "Become really adept at blowjobs.. make -that- your gift to him."

Snark vs. Hatred
I posted this initially in my own journal and modified it slightly to post here.
DH (my husband) and I had a conversation about this last night. The background is that someone promoted a community in virgin_snark
. FW and I didn't talk about promoting communities when we created this one, so I didn't feel that I could delete it just because I felt it was inappropriate. (She has since added a new rule to the community.)
So I'm going to write about my thoughts.
I see a huge difference between snark groups and hate groups. To me, snark groups are all about mocking people for their stupidity. "We don't mock you because you're a virgin, we mock you because you're a moron... you just happen to be a virgin as well."
I'm all for mocking people for their personal stupidities.
Hatred groups however, those only exist to lump people together and insult them based not upon their personal idiocies. "We hate you because you're a virgin even though you, personally, might be a wonderful person. Since you're a virgin, we hate you."
I'm not all for lumping people together under labels and hating them for no other reason.
So, I find virgin_snark to be a lovely idea for a community, but virgin_hate would cross the line for me.
It's one of the reasons I find raven55
's accusations that I hate Christians to be particularly loathsome. "No, you fool, I think -you're- a moron. I don't think every other Christian is a moron. Just you."
Well, there are my rambled thoughts on the differences between snark and hate and why I find the former to be acceptable and the latter not to be.

I started my new community; it's called religion_sucks
. It's dedicated to snarking about self-righteous, religious, bigots. Current Mood: accomplished
Who thinks I should start a community called self-righteous_pinheads_are_ew? Would you join such a community?

Out of morbid curiosity I looked at sluts_are_ew
's comment to me. I'm glad I did because I found this community. Yes, indeed the slut community was fun until it became thumper paradise.
Does making any snark
community make you a troll, or does that only apply to anything the mental giantess livvylove
cares about? Current Mood: amused

I just went to one of our favorite "virgins for life" journal info page and discovered that she is a member of sextips
Now, I can understand maybe learning something for later use, but I must say, for someone -so- against pre-marital sex, she sure picked the -wrong- community to read in that one. Maybe she uses it to fuel her fire? *shrugs*
You're a troll!
"You're a troll because you created virgin_snark
First off, dear girl, faery_whisper created the community, I wish that it had been my idea.
Second, I'd be a troll if I made these comments in the community I'm snarking. Instead, I snark in an appropriate place and try to be helpful when posting to the virgin groups. Seems like that makes me less of a troll.
That being said, sluts_are_ew
is a fun community that is sadly overrun with raven55
and his cohorts.
I've also come to the conclusion that these people's world will implode when they lose their virginities. :P
