Virginity’s value?

As outrageous as her actions may be — even if it’s all a hoax — the Internet virgin has at least proven something:

Laura Gallier, who runs a Texas-based abstinence education program, was dumbfounded by the news that bidding in the online auction of a California woman’s virginity had reached $3.7 million. “When I communicate to young people that their virginity is valuable, that’s not exactly what I have in mind,” said Gallier, author of Choosing to Wait.
Yet if 22-year-old Natalie Dylan has proven nothing else, she has demonstrated that virginity — though not exactly innocence — has market value.

That’s from my latest column at Taki’s Magazine and you should read the whole thing. But as I warned my friends at AmSpecBlog, any critic who accuses me of “cherry-picking the evidence” will be pun-ished.
