Mother proudly teaches her five daughters that "there is no such thing as virginity"

The mother admitted that people question her about her methods and ask whether her daughters will be "promiscuous" this way.

For many, figuring out their parenting style happens on the go. But one mother seems to have it figured out after she was praised for teaching (or rather not teaching) her five daughters about virginity.

Author, Cayce LaCorte, went viral for the response she gave when @nevadashareef asked TikTok users to "name something about the way you raised your kids that people think is weird but you think is healthy."

"I'm raising my five daughters to believe that there is no such thing as virginity," the mother said in her response, as quoted by Mirror. "It is a patriarchal concept used to control women and serves no purpose other than making women feel bad about ourselves."

"Just because some guy randomly sticks his penis in you at some point in your life, it does not change your worth, it's not changing who you are. It doesn't do anything other than it happened," the woman from South Carolina went on to say.



 

The writer clarified that sex certainly is a big deal but placing so much importance and meaning on the "first time" was unnecessary.

"Sex is important, it's a big deal, it should always be a big deal," she added. "It has nothing to do with your first time and it's just ridiculous."

LaCorte admitted she does get a lot of questions and raised-eyebrows when she talks about her unconventional parenting practice.

"I get a lot of c**p from other mums saying 'Oh well don't you think that will make your daughters promiscuous?'" she shared. "I was like, no. I'm raising them to be good people and have solid foundations and like make your own choices and make smart, intelligent choices, not because some book says not to."

The mother's video racked up 67 million views on TikTok and was flooded with comments both praising and questioning the idea.

"OMG!!! As a therapist, there is much praise I want to drop here for you!!": one commenter wrote while another said, "We need to normalise this!!! You just shifted my perspective in 15 seconds, it makes so much sense. Thank you so much."

Another social media user said, "Love this, always taught my daughters that it is more important to protect their credit score than their virginity."

"Why do I feel the same way but didn't realise I felt that way until hearing this?" one commenter wrote.

Some admitted how this challenges everything most people are taught their entire childhood. "Wow, I have no idea how to feel about this honestly, it goes against everything I was taught but my mind is blown and I kind of love it," one commenter said.

Among those who questioned LaCorte's idea was one user, who asked, "How do you teach your daughters this? What about when they go to big school and it's all everyone talks about?"

"I think virginity is a legit thing," said another. "People tend to put other meanings behind it tho and make it more than it actually is."
