But what fails me is the fact that no one seems to see the values of virginity testing. Firstly it instils a sense of pride about maintaining one's virginity - as opposed to the West's "Oh my gosh, you're still a virgin!" taboo. Secondly this testing also plays a pivotal role in HIV prevention. The more virgins the less HIV right? Right!
And don't tell me about other intravenous methods of acquiring HIV - rural girls in Harding know nothing about swapping needles and shooting up coke. So I ask could virginity testing really be that bad? Considering the fact that it largely leans towards yielding the positive.
Really now what does the West want us to do? Those girls are proud to be virgins and you now want to come and remove that sense of cultural pride and breed communities that think being a virgin is taboo.
