New York State Legislators Aim To Ban ‘Purity Exams’ After T.I. Comments

0

New York state lawmakers introduced legislation this week that would ban doctors from performing or supervising virginity examinations, or “purity exams,” after T.I. boasted that he accompanies his daughter to a gynecologist each year to ensure she is still a virgin.

Doctors performing the exams typically check to see whether a female patient’s hymen is intact, even though medical professionals do not consider it a reliable indicator of past sexual activity. As a memo attached to the legislation notes, there is also no medical or scientific definition of virginity. Rather, virginity is a social and religious construct.

Do you feel this is a proper move on behalf of the New York State legislators? Let us know in the comments below!
