    Where I'm from by the time a girl is 13 she loses her virginity so I'm just glad to hear there are still some around. That fresh meat, perfection.

    I don't know how I feel about virginity as a pre-requisite for a university scholarship. As well intentioned as it may be, it leaves a bad taste in my mouth.

    This has negative connotations: that African women are more premiscious than other women, which is certainly not true. I certainly do not see this as being an effective tool to fight "HIV" or a STD (the expressed purpose of the scholarship). Remaining a virgin for as long as possible does not automatically mean that a woman will make healthy choices once they do decide to remain sexually active.
