This Revolting Promise Ring Might Be the Worst Pinterest Pin Ever

Illustration for article titled This Revolting Promise Ring Might Be the Worst Pinterest Pin Ever

Did you know it's possible to make the concept of promise rings even more gross? I would have thought, "No, a father giving his daughter a fake wedding ring to remind her that he — well, he and Jesus — are the most important men in her life so she better not even think about fooling around with anybody else is about as gross as it gets," but unfortunately, as this Pinterest post shows, I was wrong and it does indeed get more shudder-inducing.


Accompanying the photo of a gold ring shaped like a crown is the following caption:

A Father gives his daughter this ring for her 16th birthday (when dating is officially allowed) to wear on her left ring finger—to remind her that she will always be HIS little Princess first— and to remind her to only date boys who will treat her like a Queen—the way her Heavenly Father sees her!!


BAAAAAAAAAARF. Oh, barf. I can't even — just barf. Barf barf barf.

Why do these dads want to own their daughters' vaginas so much? Come on, dads! Leave your daughters' vaginas alone! If they're about to fool around with their boyfriends, you are the very last thing they want to be thinking about and if that's NOT the case, then something is very very very wrong.

Also, what is going on here? Is your daughter a princess or a queen? THIS POST HAS LEFT ME VERY CONFUSED AND NAUSEATED.

I commented on one of those. Something to the effect of "Oh great, a new way to let your impressionable daughter know she's a piece of property! She "belongs" to her father until he decides to let someone pork her? Great way to let a young woman know her worth!"

It was not well received among the Pinterest community.
