Virgin or Not-A-Virgin...

I came across this blogpost and the CNN article pointed to by it.... It is interesting that in Italy a man is subjected to a lesser sentence (than actually he would) since he raped a girl who was not a virgin... makes me wonder if the trauma of being raped differs according to your virginity... The verdict says that the damage done to the girl is lower since she is not a virgin and has previous sexual experiences... hmmm.. interesting...

  • I thought such cases existed only in the Mid-east and rural India...surprising...hopefully Uncle Sam will invade Italy and spread civilization there...

  • Contemplating on the more important issue alluded to by the event, I wonder why there is so much stress of virginity in all civilizations...

    ...it could be because the foundations of civilizations were laid by men (as they happened to be warriors) and since anything that could be controlled by man was *his*, he extended that principle to woman as well and tried to ensure that no other man would lay a claim on *his* property...
