If your hymen could be gift-wrapped, what would the bow look like?

You know, sometimes they just make it too easy. The charming picture above is a billboard from CoolVirginity.com, a project of yet another crisis pregnancy center.
Also from the site: “Abstinence helps to ensure a more successful future, avoid STDs and to avoid possible life-long dependency on the welfare system.” And here I thought it was the lack of well-paid jobs that make women poor–turns out it’s just the absence of a hymen. (Does that mean if I get hymen restoration surgery that my income will magically increase? Nice!)
But seriously, I just lurve the idea that these folks think that promoting sexuality and women’s bodies as a gift is a fantastically moral idea. Are hymens the new graduation watch?
