Yes, I do know what shame is. It’s being told that being sexually active is wrong and dirty and sleazy and slutty. And I can also sympathize with feeling shame around not being sexually active. But that’s what this entire piece was about. That since there is no biological marker for virginity, it’s purely a social construct (in other words, it’s all made up bullshit for the purposes of causing shame!). I’m not sure you even actually read this article at all. It sure doesn’t seem like it because you are tilting at windmills.
