Just last week, 33-year-old actress Yvonne Orji told PEOPLE magazine that she is still a virgin and will stay that way until marriage. She has made a commitment to God to remain a virgin and will honor that. Now she’s getting ripped for it.
“I wasn’t going to hide it just because I’m on TV,” said Orji, who has always been very open about the subject. “I’m grounded in who I am.”
This is a strong woman who is very proud of who she is. Abstaining till marriage is her choice and has even has a clothing line that boats her stance on the issue.
“I have a clothing company called Rock Your Stance, and we sell shirts that say ‘Keeping it locked till I get that rock,'” Orji said.
“Entertainment chose me,” Orji continued. “Before any of this happened, I sat down with myself and with God. I said, ‘I know why I’m here. It’s to make you proud.’”
Normally when women take a strong stance they get tons of support from the left. They brag about how “empowered” women are. Well, this is different. Choosing to remain a virgin in order to honor God is obviously not something that should be praised, according to the left.
Being a virgin at 33 not because you're asexual, or have an issue attracting partners, but because of religion is sad. Not sorry. https://t.co/xxVFXS90sR

I think we can let Yvonne Orji live her best virgin life and also discuss how virginity and chastity are constructs made up by men and…

It’s good to see that there is another side of the coin where people put these condescending jerks in their place.
Ayesha Curry: "I like to cover up"
Yvonne Orji: "I'm a virgin at 33"
Amber Rose: *post nudes*

Yvonne Orji is goals mate. Not because she's a virgin but because she's unashamed to speak about it & link it to her faith in this day & age

Yvonne Orji is prolly making so much noise because we've been told owning your sexuality only meant tweeting hoe stories all the time

Feminists like to pretend that they are all about choice. Well, they are, as long as you make the choices that the feminists agree with.
Kudos to Yvonne Orji for taking a bold stance that is not popular in Hollywood, but is what she believes in.
