Licked cupcakes and ABC Gum
In one of our previous discussions on the site, we got to the topic of male and female sexuality and whether the church is harsher on one sex or the other when it comes to sexual immorality. I don’t know what all we concluded, but I guess one conclusion was that the church harps on both sexes about the importance of sexual purity…and there are some interesting analogies used for each gender. I have remembered a lesson once about the importance of not …doing something…to my factory…or some such. I’m not quite sure I even knew what was going on then…but I know I have never had a lesson about licked cupcakes.
But as I was reading another article on another site, about the need for parents to talk with children about sex and bodies earlier (in a nevertheless age-appropriate manner)…something that I agree with…I was surprised to see the example of already chewed gum.
I don’t know which is worse. At least most people plan to swallow the cupcake icing they’ve licked. But after gum is chewed, most people spit it out when the flavor is gone. If you become a piece of chewed gum, you’re liable to be left high and dry on the sidewalk or under a schoolhouse desk.
Unless you have that awesome stride gum or gum that changes flavor (Berry to Mint!?!?) In that case, let your flavor shine forth?
