What is the Value of Violating the ‘Right to Virginity’?

Holy Hormones Journal: $5,000 for virginity. Let’s remember in many countries around the world a dethroned virgin is valueless period. Women are stoned, battered, abused and delhi_rape_capital_of_indiakilled for losing their virginity – even when they have been raped or a victim of incest.  The woman asked for $81,000 in psychological damages. Every woman I know who has been deceived into having sex and/or a relationship knows that there is psychological damage – and the cost of that is far more than the punitive worth of her vagina. There I said it. Who really is being punished here? The married man? hell, no. The woman who has been reduced to the court-evaluated worth of her vagina – not the mental/emotional duress she endured as a human being.

Not to mention the public duress and shame she has endured by going before the court.

The shame that will last a life time.
Is this a message to men or to all women?

How much do you think your virginity is worth?
How many women have been deceived by married men?

What is the value of the right to virginity in other places in the world?  Would $5,000 cut it in the U.S.? In India? In Syria? In Pakistan

Instead of an Equal Right’s Amendment maybe we should be pushing for a ‘Right to Virginity” Amendment and the right to punitive damages if violated. I would push for the $81,000 and call it the Chen Amendment. If women only had a voice in how the world was run instead of a price tag hanging from our vaginas.

Chinese court rules that a woman’s virginity is worth $5000

A Chinese woman received the sum after suing a man for “violating her right to virginity”

A CHINESE COURT has paid out $5000 (€3858) to a woman who sued a man for “violating her right to virginity” after he wooed her with false promises.

The two were dating but when the woman (surnamed Chen) found out her boyfriend was already married, she sued him for swindling her out of her virginity.

A spokesman for the Pudong New Area People’s Court confirmed the case and the judgement, but said the man had appealed the ruling.

The two began dating in 2013, later traveling to Singapore where they consummated the relationship – after the man (surnamed Li) suddenly broke off contact, Chen burst into his home and found him with his wife.

Chen accused him of violating her rights to virginity and health and demanded more than $81,000 in psychological damages.

The court found the original demand “excessive” but said in its ruling that the “right to virginity” should be protected by law as it was a “moral right” related to “sexual freedom, sexual safety and sexual purity.”
