After talking about this in class and seeing how everyone reacted I do not think that you can define what it truly is. Virginity is what you make it out to be. You can be a reclaimed virgin as the book states or you can be a person who has never has intercourse of any kind. For me a virgin is someone that hasn’t had intercourse of any kind or messed around. This is where the topic gets touchy because no matter what you say or think about it you’ll end up pissing someone off. The reason I say intercourse of any kind is because I have friends that are lesbians and they don’t consider themselves virgins, but they have never had sex with a man. I also have a gay uncle and he has never slept with a woman and he does not consider himself a virgin. So in my mind a virgin is someone who has never had physical contact besides kissing with another person. Sorry if you do not agree with me, but hey that’s what a personal opinion is for and it’s much easier to talk on a board about it then to get criticized in class.
