“Virginity” is a social construct used by men to assure potential ”buyers” of the sexual “purity” of their female merchandise, in the form of daughters meant to be sold via dowry to a suitable prospect. It was codified in Judeo-Christianity as a result in order to give a “god sanctioned” stamp of approval to the process.
For women, it meant that the presence of a hymen was used to gauge virginity. Since this goes away naturally and isn’t even fully present in many women, a woman had to bleed during “consumation” or else the deal was off.
The imagination can tell you how this process went for women…..
This continues to our time and age to keep women in line and make young females feel bad over their own sexuality. It’s time we throw out religion (that is mainly controlled by men) and it’s oppressive attitude towards not only women, but all peoples natural sexuality.
This shouldn’t be a thing at all. If someone wants to try sex … fine. If someone doesn’t want to … also fine! But putting labels on it and shame people that’s when it’s time to fight it. Let women choose to do what they want, when they want.
MEN SHOULD NEVER BE ALLOWED TO SET LAWS OR RULES ABOUT WOMEN’S BODIES.
