Why aren't men required to prove their virginity. Women's virginity has been a bone of contention for eons. Virginity has been prized across religions and cultures, and doctors note that only a few generations back European brides also had to furnish documentary “proof” of virginity but today? This is ridiculous. Will women and girls ever get agency for themselves, will they ever be in control of their own lives and adults. It's hard to imagine that.
