It's a choice god dammit. Who cares if someone is a fat churchie, an atheist, skinny or whatever. It doesn't matter. If someone chooses abstinence good for them, if not, shut the fuck up.
Shut the hell up you whiny bastards. Abstinence is a choice that you can't force people to make. And for the sake of argument, I'm still a virgin so you can't say I'm on the side of having sex either.
