But first, I think it's really important to listen to Smart's awesome & brave comments in context. It's about twelve minutes. I think it's important mainly because most the news media coverage makes it sound like she didn't escape because of an abstinence lesson—which I think is disrespectful to Elizabeth who says the reasons are complicated. The truth is that she discusses a couple of factors that parents, leaders, and other youth stakeholders could use, practically, to better prepare kids to face crises of fear and manipulation. One being the fear for her family, and the other being an absolutely ridiculous object lesson about abstinence.
As Mormons, it's a great opportunity to think about things we say that might seem "normal" because we've heard other people say them, but actually don't teach doctrine. In fact, some of these phrases and analogies teach the opposite of doctrine. Her comments regard her rape which wasn't her fault, and really highlights how teaching a principle of the gospel of Jesus Christ out of fear is always wrong. God wants us to teach principles out of love.
Clearly, I have more to say about this. But, I'm still thinking.
