Yesterday, I experienced the privilege and honor of speaking at the Rethinking Virginity Conference at Harvard University. The seminar had been arranged by Lena Chen plus the Harvard Queer StudentsвЂ™ Association, and brought together a very diverse and impressive band of feminists, whom dropped some knowledge that is serious all things virgin-themed. Probably one of the most interesting components of the panel had been learning simply how much misinformation exists around dilemmas of virginity, intercourse, and our anatomies. IвЂ™ve compiled ten myths uncovered- and debunked- at yesterdayвЂ™s meeting:
Myth # 1:
The hymen could be the marker that is definitive of. There is absolutely no one trait that is physical indicates virginity or intimate activity- not really the clear presence of a вЂњhymen.вЂќ I put hymen in quotes because IвЂ™ve started to discover that it is an entity that is nebulous.
