OMFG. Echidne posted a link to blinkytreefrog, who found a book from about 1951 called “On Becoming A Woman”. Which is very fortuitous, as the Human Life Alliance has put a PDF of their abstinence-only rags “Just For Girls” and “Just For Boys”, which are similar to this 1951 book to the degree that they could be plagiarists. Except I think that woman-hating, sex-phobic nuts basically eat and shit this stuff, so it’s less plagiarism and more the fiber of their beings. Shall we do a dance of comparison?

I like those last two. You can hear the adults writing these things congratulate themselves. “Ah ha! With this dating advice, we’ll have them in public where they can’t have sex, and they’ll never know they’ve been had. Mwahhahaha!”
