Puritan mother: Oh my goodness! Put some clothes on before you end up spending the rest of your life in a brothel!

Girl: But look at Zack! He's shirtless and his jeans are so low we can practically see all of his boxers! Why is that ok??

Puritan mother: Because I'm a sexist bitch.

A person that's literally the king/queen of inferiority that they make themselves feel better by acting morally over the top that they expect everyone to be like them and anyone that dares to differ will be canceled
My puritan friends act like they better than everyone but when they walked downstairs, they saw that me, my friend, and the dog were in fancy clothes, they freaked the fuck out and had a temper tantrum.

The Puritans were members of a religious reformation movement known as Puritanism which arose within the Church of England. Puritans were the more extreme Protestants within the Church of England in the late 16th century who thought that the English Reformation wasnโ€™t far enough in reforming the doctrines and structure of the church. They wanted to purify the Church of England as it was too similar to the Roman Catholic Church. In the 17th century, many Puritans emigrated to the New World, where they sought a holy commonwealth in New England.
