Here’s a little ad being circulated around Ryerson University. What a surprise–it’s being torn apart in the comments section. It seems it isn’t politically correct to refer to your personal values as “more honorable.”
But let’s be honest. If saving yourself for your ideal mate is the motive behind the celibacy, is that not more honorable than, say, a one-night stand?
Oh, right! We use the remote to change the channel, order food that’s ready in about a minute, and use high-speed internet. What makes me think waiting for sex in our instant-gratification society will be a very popular idea?
And yet, I’m decidedly optimistic.
Andrea doesn’t want to be mean yet she wonders: Whether some of these people are celibate by default, not honourable choice. Nothing against Star Trek, but…
Brigitte doesn’t mind being mean: Holy Corny Cheesy Cringe-Inducing Terrible Clip, Batman! Is this for real? I’m all for sexual restraint (sorry, I don’t think celibacy is necessarily for everybody, but between that and indiscriminate hooking-up, I’m sure there’s a healthy middle), and I am not always as pessimistic as I sound, but golly, this video is so awful it would have pushed me far away from celibacy…
Andrea again: Apparently, the clip, having been torn apart in their comments section, will now be torn apart in ours. Perhaps we should take it down. I don’t want to be responsible for someone running out into a torrid and inappropriate affair because of bad celibacy advertising–no booze required. I once heard someone say it’s fine to be celibate: You should, however, refrain from advertising publicly. Proof positive.
