WTF is it about a bit of skin (that may or may not still be there or ever have been there) that makes some men want to pay money and some cultures (still including remnants of our own) go apeshit?
If your stomach can handle it, please read the article, "Hymen Repair on the Arabic Internet" by Bjoern Bentlage, Thomas Eich, and edited by yours truly, for the International Institute for the Study of Islam in the Modern World. Bentlage and Eich essentially conducted a study on texts, position papers, and public debate on the Arabic Internet over the controversial issue of hymen repair, a surgical practice in which the remains of a woman's broken hymen are repaired or reconstructed. The surgery is used by women with a broken or torn hymen who are about to be married and must prove they are virgins.
Are you feeling nauseous yet? Okay, moving on. As you might assume, women with torn hymens face a wide variety of harsh societal consequences if it's discovered by their future husbands, so this surgical practice has become more and more popular for women trying to escape such persecution. Of course, the practice is highly controversial and hotly debated by Muslim men (and a few fundamentalist Christian men as well) everywhere, who are mortified that the practice deceives men into thinking they're marrying a virgin when they're not. Prominent Muslim doctors acknowledge that just because a woman has a broken hymen doesn't mean she's had pre-marital sex
I think the psychology is much uglier than that, but, I am a cynic and then some...
What right do you have to force your morals into someone else's sexuality?
