Grammy-winning rapper T.I. has a true supporter in Rah Digga. The East Coast hip-hop artist recently revealed she monitored her daughter’s virginity.
Digga recently went online to explain her motivation and the aftermath of learning her daughter lost her virginity.
Digga also made sure to publicly show her support for the King of the South’s hymen checks.
A few days ago, New York lawmakers introduced legislation aiming to ban doctors from performing and supervising purity examinations following Tip’s recent remarks.
Doctors performing the exams typically check to see whether a female patient’s hymen is intact, even though medical professionals do not consider it a reliable indicator of past sexual activity. As a memo attached to the legislation notes, there is also no medical or scientific definition of virginity. Rather, virginity is a social and religious construct. (Huff Post)
Doctors would ultimately have to deal with penalties for going through with purity exams.
The New York Senate bill, S6879, is sponsored by state Sen. Roxanne Persaud and its New York Assembly counterpart is sponsored by state Assemblywoman Michaelle Solages and co-sponsored by Rick Gottfried, Andrew Hevesi and Walter T. Mosley. Their legislation would subject doctors to “penalties for professional misconduct” along with potential criminal sexual assault charges for performing or supervising the exams. (Huff Post)
