Just Because I'm a Woman Lyrics
anonymous Dec 6th 2021 report
Dolly's husband was disappointed that she was not a virgin when he married her. She says she made mistakes before, but so had he, since he was no virgin either, when they married. However, there should not be a double standard. What is good for the goose is good for the gander. They both did not come to the marriage pure, and she shouldn't be treated worse for it because of a double standard. It is refreshing that it was at least looked at as a liability back them, and a "mistake." And yes, why should a woman be held to a higher standard than a man. They both should remain virgins until marriage, according to the Bible.
She intimates that she had sex with a man whom she thought would be faithful to her and presumably marry her soon enough, but he left her. That is sad that he left her, and perhaps she let him have sex with her because she thought they were going to get married anyway. However, this is not just a mistake. The Bible makes clear that it is sin, called fornication. She had no business having sex until she was married. May the Lord help this country get back to that standard, since virginity these days is sneered at, instead of treasured.
