OK, for the PC crowd, lets' review this logically:

1) Virginity is a concept that applies only to women.

Main Entry: vir·gin
Pronunciation: 'v&r-j&n
Function: noun
Etymology: Middle English, from Old French virgine, from Latin virgin-, virgo young woman, virgin
Date: 13th century
1 a : an unmarried woman devoted to religion
2 a : an absolutely chaste young woman b : an unmarried girl or woman
3 : a female animal that has never copulated


2) Women are objects that are to be "used."

The original post states: "...it's my understanding that a virgin is only virgin until she has been used." I fail to see that implication that the purpose of virgins is to be “used” but rather the statement implies that once a virgin has been “used” they are no longer a virgin.

Main Entry: use
Pronunciation: 'yüz
Function: verb
Inflected Form(s): used /'yüzd, in the phrase "used to" usually 'yüs(t)/; us·ing /'yü-zi[ng]/
Date: 14th century
transitive senses
1 : to put into action or service : avail oneself of : EMPLOY


3) Once "used," a woman is worth less.

Main Entry: virgin
Function: adjective
Date: 14th century
1 : free of impurity or stain : UNSULLIED


OK, now let's try this one:

“Statements like this, "...it's my understanding that a virgin is only virgin until she has been used." often give the perceptive reader a glimpse into the inner workings of the writer . . . I must still continue to question the counsel of someone who advocates this thinking! “


Main Entry: ad ho·mi·nem
Pronunciation: (')ad-'hä-m&-"nem, -n&m
Function: adjective
Etymology: New Latin, literally, to the person
Date: 1598
1 : appealing to feelings or prejudices rather than intellect
2 : marked by an attack on an opponent's character rather than by an answer to the contentions made
