“If you could display nudity, I can display chastity”
Faith Ehimare, a graduate of the University of Port Harcourt (UNIPORT), who is currently doing her one-year compulsory National Youth Service, has boasted of being a virgin.
Ehimare, in a post on Facebook a few days ago, said that since people are displaying their nudity, she can also display her chastity.
UNIPORT VIRGIN CORPER!! YES I AM SURE PORT HARCOURT DAUGHTER. I STUDY AT UNIPORT, I GRADUATED AT THE TOP OF MY CLASS, AND WE ARE STILL A LOT OF VIRGINS.
If you could display nudity, I can display chastity!! I know you have a reservation about the girls at Uniport, especially those staying at Alakahia and Aluu.
Well, this message might not suit you, because in our world, nudity is applauded while chastity is criticized. We are Christians but we keep quiet and let evil prosper. However, I owe humanity the gift of light. So I would share.
If you could remember, I had shared my story with you, about my school days. I told you how I became the female BGS in my department, Political Science and Public Administration U2016. I talked about the misdeeds, criticisms and hatred I was shown at school. I talked about how I was called a prostitute, a lesbian, and whatever else they chose to call me.
I wouldn’t lie, I had some terrible times during that time. Reason why, I would spend years with these people who tore me to pieces. I had times when I didn’t want to see their faces. I had times when I wanted them to see me for me and not the lies that clouded their thoughts of me. I wanted them to sincerely love me and not look at me with disgust. I wanted a real friendship. All I wanted was for them to see me differently.
I had so many desires from these people that I almost got lost and focused. I wanted them to listen to me, just once, to dispel misconceptions and bridge the gap between us, but I didn’t. I was caught between sticking to who I was and wanting to tell them how wrong they were about me. I literally wanted them to like me. Yes, I needed validation. Whose kwanu?
It’s laughable now when I remember those days. How tiring it was for people who will still put you down. People who believed premarital sex was normal and if you disagree, you’re either a liar or a pretender.
While some people are reading this article now, under their breath they are either really scared that evil might befall me as I spoke, some people think there is no need to claim a saint outside while others think I’m a liar.
And, I know, it’s taboo to talk about virginity in public. Of course, this does not suit you because you have a reservation about people who talk about their chastity in public. You think virginity shouldn’t be a public matter, but you can openly display and enjoy nudity. You believe that if spoken about, the person could be raped or even kidnapped and used for rituals.
I can understand your fears, but I have no intention of shutting up anytime soon. I share this with you because I know the pressure is real. We hear daily how a 22 year old girl has slept with hundreds and thousands of men in one year. Yabaleft goes ahead to help sell them, reposting them, and then people imagine the situation applauding them. You have no choice but to wonder if your private part is still working. My darling, you are a special specimen, forget the pressure, walk away from troubles of heart, mind, soul and body. Be chaste, it is possible!!!
If you could display nudity, I can display chastity. I believe we can have a society that once again applauds decency over nudity!
YES, I AM SURE DAUGHTER FROM PORT HARCOURT AND I HAVE SCHOOL AT UNIPORT AND WE STILL MANY WEY BE VIRGIN.
My name is Faith Ehimare, I am on a journey to wear virginity on my head as an akara. Please follow me on this journey and you are free to call me coper shun!!!”
