A Brigham Young University sophomore has taken to the pages of Cosmo to protest the school's approach on premarital sex.
In an article that appeared Wednesday on Cosmopolitan's website, Keli Byers argues that BYU's Honor Code codifies harmful beliefs that sexual women are ruined, and, with its rules about sexual behavior and modesty, effectively shames women.
"The truth is, I'm not a virgin. I'm a sexual woman and a proud feminist, and I don't feel bad about it. But it's hard to admit that, because women at BYU who aren't virgins are treated as inferiors and that's not fair," Byers said in the story.
