A few days back, a TikTok user named @nevadashareef came forward with a question for parents in her TikTok. She intended, for them to inform about one practice that they religiously follow, which other parents tend to avoid.
A woman whose name is Cayce LaCorte responds to this video about how Cayce teaches her daughter that there is no such thing called virginity. She says that virginity is nothing but a society’s tool to pressurize women and to put restrictions on them. Cayce said:
“It is a patriarchal concept used to control women and serves no purpose. Other than making women feel bad about ourselves.”
She went on to add:
Just because some guy randomly sticks his penis in you at some point in your life does not change your worth, it does not change who you are, it doesn’t do anything other than it happened. Sex is important. It’s a big deal. It should always be a big deal. It has nothing to do with your first time…it’s just ridiculous. The whole concept is ridiculous.
Cayce also puts forward that how other parents react and are worried when they hear from Cayce. They are more concerned about how Cayce will spoil her daughter, to which she answers, that she wants her daughter to be a good human being and make wise decisions.
“I get a lot of crap from other moms saying, “Oh well, do you think that will make your daughters promiscuous? Don’t you think?” And I am like no, I am raising them to be good people and have solid foundations and make their own choices and make smart, intelligent choices. Not because some book says not to.”
According to her the concept of virginity is nothing but a lost list of “arbitrary rules” thrust on women, which eventually diverts the focus from safe-sex practices to things that shouldn’t be anyone’s business.
Also, she raises her 5 daughters by following a different plan. She doesn’t believe in having that ‘one big talk’ and slowly breaks down things and put them forward in front of her daughters as per their age.
People hailed Cayce for speaking for such an important conversation
