Yeah, Colton Underwood Is A Virgin, Stop Talking About It

We Get It, Colton Underwood Is A Virgin, Stop Talking About It

How would you feel if you were constantly being asked about something so personal?


"The Bachelor" is back, and it was definitely a bit of a shock when it was announced that Colton would be the leading man. To be honest, I was rooting for Jason, mainly because the man doesn't have one flaw, but I figured I'd give Colton a chance.

As the months led up to the premiere, and Colton started appearing on various talk shows, one thing about him was constantly coming up: his virginity.

Now, if you're a true "Bachelor" fan, you know that this isn't exactly new news. After appearing on Becca's season last year, it was revealed that Colton had never had sex before. It wasn't really a big deal, but Becca took a little while to get over it because it came as a bit of a shock.

TBH, I think she was just disappointed because she wanted to bring him to the Fantasy Suite.

Anyway, since Colton has been announced as Bachelor number 23, the talk about his virginity has gone wild. Almost every time he's in an interview, a question comes up about why he's still a virgin and why he chose to make that decision.

It isn't even just interviewers doing this; ABC is seriously milking it. He is officially nicknamed as the "Virgin Bachelor", and Chris Harrison sure doesn't stop talking about it on the air. All within the first episode, at least three of the women brought up virginity jokes when they first met Colton, and another's first conversation with him was asking why he's still waiting to have sex.

Like, damn, people, that's crossing the line a bit.

I understand why everyone won't stop talking about it. Colton is an extremely good-looking man, he's 26, he went to the NFL, and he is STILL a virgin. It's out of the ordinary, but Colton grew up in a religious family and learned that his virginity is something important.

There's nothing wrong with that, so stop diminishing him for it.

In this day and age, hookup culture is prevalent. If someone stays a virgin, people think that it's weird and there is so much stigma around it. Colton shared a very personal piece of himself, and people have blown it out of proportion.

Who cares if the man is a virgin? For Pete's sake, all we care about is who is getting the roses! The drama! The two-on-one dates! WHY does someone's virginity have to be what everyone talks about?

Colton has discussed that he isn't ashamed of his virginity, and it isn't something that takes up a big part of his life. It's important to him, so in my opinion, people should stop talking about it. We get it! He hasn't had sex! But it's no big deal, and ABC, the women on the show, and anyone else out there should stop making such a mockery of it.

How would you feel if you were constantly being asked about something so personal?

I swear, if one more "Colton is a virgin" joke comes out of my TV, I'm going to throw something at it. Leave the man alone and stop prodding him to expose more of his personal life. He's only human, and the decisions he makes about his life are for himself to judge, not you.

So, here's to another great season of "The Bachelor." One that's hopefully full of love, laughter, and no more virgin jokes.

We have all been there. Mindlessly scrolling through social media and then we see that post. We see someone we once saw a future with creating it with someone else. However this time it was really different. A lot of times when we say we are happy for someone we don't really mean it.

Affirmations affirm beliefs that we are in need of strengthening. They help up to focus on goals that we are striving for or on a powerful part of ourselves that we need a little reminder is within us.

They specifically focus on positive outcomes or belief systems that we're working to solidify, rather than solely focusing action on eradicating something "bad" or "wrong" from your life.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Some people are so good at downplaying their sadness that even they don't realize how much they do it. When you ask them how they are they will always say that they are good, even when they aren't. They exhaust themselves by plastering an energetic and carefree persona in the spaces that you watch them in because at least to you they can control how they appear. They can pretend to be the happy person they want to be when everyone is telling them how funny and bubbly they are all the time.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.
