Virginity Pledges

Whenever I hear about these virginity pledges they ask kids to make, I think about the really nerdy kids. That kind of talk must be like putting salt in a wound. Like asking me to pledge not to buy a Lamborghini Gallardo until they make a hybrid version. Sure, okay, I'll make that pledge. Whatever. As if.

This episode was kind of thrown together to replace one I did about today's national call to service. While it wasn't horribly offensive, it felt a little too snarky about an idea I like. If you'd like to see that outtake, you can find it on the Deadpan Inc. fanpage on Facebook.

Just a reminder that you still have five days to throw together your version of the Blind Man song. (See last Tuesday's posting.) If you don't think you can make a good song out of those lyrics, don't let that stop you. Nobody is expecting great songs here. No matter how bad they are, they're bound to be entertaining. So c'mon, join the party. Have some fun with Blind Man and let us hear your awesome talent.

I made that same pledge to myself!

Actually I feel that I am lucky that I didn't have sex until I was an adult because I think there would have been a pregnancy. I thank Hashem that I didn't have sex until I was on my own with a job and stuff because I got my wife pregnant fairly easily and it was easy for me to take responsibility and get married since I had a place of my own and a job.

I used to be a high school special ed teacher. I took a group of my students to an assembly where some young actors touted the benefits of celibacy. They passed around the pledge, and all of my students signed it. Once we got back to class, I think only two of the dozen or so kids had any clue what they had signed! They just went to the assembly and signed the oath because it was something to do instead of being in class.

I think that is why so many high school kids get pregnant, too -- it is something to do. My wife is an HS teacher and, at her school, the kids actively involved in school don't get pregnant, just the seemingly bored ones.
