[livejournal.com profile] lydaclunas has written a truly excellent, well-reasoned and thought-provoking essay about adult virginity which I think deserves much more attention than it's received so far. Here's a brief excerpt:
Why do adult virgins get such a raw deal? Judging a person based on their status as a virgin is reducing them to but one experience (not even a character trait) -- one which (in my observation) has little bearing on personality. Though sex is an important part of life, with responsibility and consequences attached, I do not believe the choice not to have sex makes one any less a normal, well-adjusted human being in our society. In my opinion, that is comparable to saying that I am a different person because I have not had the common and important life experience of purchasing and owning my own home....
She makes a lot of other good points as well. Go over and have a look, won't you?

(And of course I had to use this icon.)
