Uganda Lawmaker Offers Scholarships To Virgin Girls
Interesting. The article says the scholarship offer will help to prevent the spread of AIDS and promote education.
But, I wonder... why only girls? Are they solely responsible for the spread of AIDS?
And, I worry about this part:
Girls who want to take advantage of the virginity scholarships will have to agree to medical exams to confirm their chaste status.
That's pretty invasive, just to qualify for a scholarship, isn't it? Whatever happened to essay contests?
Also, I seem to remember something from sex ed or something that it's impossible to know definitively if a girl is a virgin just by a medical exam. And, what about rape and incest victims, they're not entitled to this offer? And born again virgins?
So, obviously, there are a few a kinks to work out... but it's an interesting offer to be sure.
