The media is full of hypocritical liberals trying to make “My body, my choice” the only acceptable slogan for the ladies. Now, a young woman from Hollywood is challenging the narrative by speaking out about her choice of abstinence.
Despite starring in a show titled Insecure, Yvonne Orji feels comfortable sharing intimate details of her personal life with fans—including the fact that she’s a dedicated Christian who plans on remaining a virgin until marriage.
“I’m open, because why not?” she tells PEOPLE in this week’s issue. “I’m grounded in who I am.”
She adds, “Before any of [the fame] happened, I sat down with myself and with God and thought, when I make it, how do you want me to represent you while I’m here?” The HBO star says she answered her own question: “It was like, OK, I know why I’m here. It’s to make you proud.”
Of course, the SJW trolls, who hate slut-shaming and fat-shaming, had to make their lard laden presence known.
Being a virgin at 33 not because you're asexual, or have an issue attracting partners, but because of religion is sad. Not sorry. https://t.co/xxVFXS90sR

So a woman decides to hold off giving away her flower until she finds a man she wants to spend the rest of her life with, and that makes her a bad person? #FemaleEmpowerment
Agreed. The shame, hypocrisy, & condemnation surrounding women, their bodies & choices under the guise of religion is control. Nothing else.

But it’s her body. What happened to her choice? If she wants religion to dictate her choices, what business is it of yours? She’s not telling YOU what to do with YOUR body.
I think we can let Yvonne Orji live her best virgin life and also discuss how virginity and chastity are constructs made up by men and…

Virginity as a construct? No. Virginity means not having engaged in coitus. And if one hasn’t engaged in coitus, one is a virgin. Dumbass.
Then, sane humanity came out and put micro brained SJWs in shallow Twitter graves.
Seems counter-intuitive that men would push women toward an ideal of chastity and virginity…

Good point. According to feminists, men just want to use women for their sexual desires. Encouraging them to be chaste runs counter to that narrative.
Yvonne Orji is prolly making so much noise because we've been told owning your sexuality only meant tweeting hoe stories all the time

Point made. And it’s excellent.
It's great that Yvonne Orji's virginity issue has turned into a learning exercise. Many women clearly didn't grasp the concept of choice.

I know, right?
Ayesha Curry: "I like to cover up"
Yvonne Orji: "I'm a virgin at 33"
Amber Rose: *post nudes*
Yall: "yasss girl!"

For the win.
Maybe there is hope for humanity after all.
If a woman’s body is her choice, then there should be no issue with that woman keeping that body chaste until she decides to engage in the love dance. But because our society is so sex-crazed, the horny men and women on social media see anyone who choses not to be sexually active as a judgement call on their lifestyles. And how DARE anyone else judge someone else! Except if you’re sleeping with whomever you please, then judge someone who’s deciding to sleep only with their spouse? You’ve just judged them. Often without them judging you at all. Related: Waiting till the wedding night – getting married the right way.
Feminists: some of the most judgmental hypocrites our planet has had the misfortune of hosting.
