=Disastrous Effects of Wrong Teachings= 

 

What disastrous effects wrong teaching which inoculates the minds of 

our women with wrong ideas may have, the following three cases 

reported briefly in _The Critic and Guide_, will show: 

 

=Case One= was a girl of twenty-four, of well-to-do parents, a college 

graduate. She was engaged to a really very nice, sympathetic young 

man, who undoubtedly would have made her an excellent husband. But 

during her last two years in college she became imbued with the single 

standard stupidity, and "chastity for men, votes for women" became her 

slogan. She asked her fiance if he had been absolutely chaste before 

he met her. He did not want to play the hypocrite, and he told her the 

truth that he had not. But he assured her that he had never been 

infected and that his general and sexual health was in excellent 

condition. Being then in an exalted mood, she impulsively broke the 

engagement, declaring that her husband will have to be as "pure" as 

she was. She soon regretted her step, because she loved the man; but 

pride did not let her take the initiative towards a reconciliation, 

and in the meantime her former fiance fell in love with and married 

another girl. After four years had passed, and she was in danger of 

becoming an old maid, she married a man considerably beneath her 

socially and intellectually, and in every way inferior to her former 

fiance. Her marriage is not a happy one. 

 

=Case two= is similar to case one, except that the young lady in 

question--now not so very young--is still living in single 

blessedness, and the chances of her ever being a wife or even 

somebody's sweetheart are rapidly vanishing. I might add that her 

fiance whom she discarded because of his lack of virginity was a very 

bright young physician, who is now very successful and very happily 

married. She I hear is a very unhappy person, in danger of sinking 

into a permanent state of melancholia. And she had been of a very 

jolly disposition. 

 

=Case three= is peculiar in that the fiance _was_ absolutely chaste. 

She asked him, and he told her that he had never had any relations 

with anybody and he never had a trace or suspicion of any venereal 

disease. The young lady was not satisfied. She wanted her fiance to 

bring her a certificate from a specialist testifying to that effect. 

The young man told her that it was foolish, that he would not subject 

himself to the expense and annoyance of a number of tests when he 

_knew_ that not only did he not have any venereal disease, but that 

there was no possibility of his getting any. No, that did not satisfy 

her. She became suspicious. "If you have nothing to fear, why do you 

object to bringing a certificate?" "I have nothing to fear, but I
