It Isn't Just T.I. -- Virginity Testing Is a Worldwide Problem

On Wednesday, the rapper T.I. horrified the world when he revealed that when his 18-year-old daughter Deyjah goes to her annual gynecologist check-up, he has the doctor “check her hymen is still intact.”

“We’ll go and sit down and the doctor comes and talk, and the doctor’s maintaining a high level of professionalism,” the 39-year-old rapper told the podcast Ladies Like Us. “He’s like, ‘You know, sir, I have to, in order to share information’ — I’m like, ‘Deyjah, they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you would not want me to know? See, Doc? Ain’t no problem.'”

T.I. went on to acknowledge that while the hymen can be broken in many other ways than sex — such as, for instance, gymnastics or horseback riding — he pushed for the procedure nonetheless. “I say, ‘Look, Doc, she don’t ride no horses, she don’t ride no bike, she don’t play no sports. Just check the hymen, please, and give me back my results expeditiously.'” When asked whether he applied such standards to his 15-year-old son, T.I. said he did not, and that he in fact knew his son was sexually active and OK with it.

T.I.’s comments seemed almost lab-engineered to piss off people on the internet, and piss off people on the internet they did. Many pointed out the outrageous invasion of privacy of forcing your 18-year-old daughter — an adult, in the eyes of the law — to submit to hymen testing; others focused on the double standard of T.I. going to such degrees to ensure his daughter was not having sex, while simultaneously applauding his younger son for being sexually active.

1. Child abuse and, I suspect, a neon sign for something even worse.

Men (or anyone) like this should NEVER have children. And the women (Mothers) that enable such acts earn nothing but contempt from me. They are accomplices to child abuse.

6. If he's still married ...

to the mother of this child and she agrees with this, then she's brainwashed. The guy is a complete control freak and would expect nothing less from his wife. I'm sure there are consequences for any dissent.

Make it a ritual in defiance of patriarchy!

3. Sick Bastard

I suppose he plans to have a real bonding moment with his future son in law. Eternal gratitude that he "kept" her pure and chaste for him, her "first".

This is so demeaning to this girl I'm beyond words.

10. Disown her?

Make her feel worthless? Reduce her identity to a servant and object for her husband and his pleasure? Oh wait ... he's already doing that.

8. Cultures are changing amazingly fast, but not everything

changes just as fast everywhere. It's not like there's anything less than 20,000 years old to virginity testing, probably more like 100,000-200,000.
