Re: [Provocateurs] Elizabeth Smart blames abstinence-only education

Good observations.  Just watched the LNN movie on the Elizabeth Smart story.  They showed her listening to the searchers calling her name as she laid in her camp with the kidnappers. It also portrayed her as being very submissive, even to the point that she would not admit to the police officer who questioned her that she was Elizabeth Smart.  She just said "I saith, what you saith."

However there is a you tube video in which she tells the chewing gum story.  

I question if the Jesus type garb and religious type talk of her kidnappers also had some influence on Elizabeth. 

And of course there were the threats on her family's lives had an influence.

Absolutely...there are any number of justifiable reasons for her not to escape...including the well known Stockholm syndrome. i don't blame her for that by any means. i just think that it can't all be attributed to the fact that a teacher told her she would be like a used up piece of gum.

Anna, the only justification she needs is that she was afraid. Unless you've been in that situation, you don't know how you'll react. -Lynne

Who is "they"? I have never in my life heard a comparison to a stick of gum, or any other metaphor even close to that. In any case, I'm sure she is trying to find ways to justify not escaping in her own mind. It must be terrible guilt to have to deal with.

>I was watching the Melissa Harris-Perry Show today, and they showed a recent clip of Elizabeth Smart talking about abstinence education. In case you don't remember, she was the teenager kidnapped and raped for months. She was talking about how they teach that a girl is like a stick of gum and sex is being chewed/used and if you are used too many times, no one will want you. So she thought what is the point of trying to escape....she felt worthless. I knew AO was wrong for being ineffective, but I had no idea how truely evil it could be. What a horrible thing to say to girls, and what a terrible message to send to boys about the worth of girls/women.
