There is an article in MSNBC this morning about re-virginization. For the low low sum of $5,000 you can have your hymen “repaired” so that you can give the “gift” of virginity.
“Have you already unwrapped the priceless gift of virginity and given it away?” asks the Web site for the Pregnancy Resource Center of Northeast Ohio, where Watts began working part-time after she reclaimed her virginity. “Do you now feel like ‘second-hand goods’ and no longer worthy to be cherished? Do you ever wish you could re-wrap it and give it only to your future husband or wife? Guess what…? You can decide today to commit to abstinence, wrapping a brand-new gift of virginity to present to your husband or wife on your wedding night.”
This type of crappy message has to be beaten down. The idea that not being a virgin could result in feeling that you are “second hand goods” and “no longer worthy of being cherished” is about the worst schlock to be passed off to our daughter who already have to deal with tremendous image issues. I think it’s this mentality that makes me hate the virgin widow trope with the heat of a thousand suns.
