Hello classy classmates,
In response to the discussion about females having all of the pressure to remain virgins before marriage, I would like to propose a reason for this. Back in the colorful days of Puritanism, it was widely believed that women were “more easily tempted by the devil” and, therefore, should be basically “ruled” by men after marriage to keep them from straying sexually. Maybe the supression of women has carried on? Or maybe women had to prove everyone wrong by remaining a virgin and the tradition lives on?
