Quote of the day

posted at 10:00 pm on January 23, 2009 by Allahpundit

“When I learned this, it became apparent to me that idealized virginity is just a tool to keep women in their place. But then I realized something else: if virginity is considered that valuable, what’s to stop me from benefiting from that? It is mine, after all. And the value of my chastity is one level on which men cannot compete with me. I decided to flip the equation, and turn my virginity into something that allows me to gain power and opportunity from men. I took the ancient notion that a woman’s virginity is priceless and used it as a vehicle for capitalism.

Are you rolling your eyes?”

Women have been using their sexuality for economic gain for quite a long time. In fact, it is the oldest profession.

I’m convinced. I want a poontang bailout.

I think the thing between her ears is also pristine and unused.

Doesn’t seem like you should spend that kind of money on something that you could get for the price of a pizza and a case of beer. I guess you have to know where to shop.

tool to keep women in their place

I’ve got your tool. It might be a tight fit in such a new box…but I bet we could work it out…in , out, in…

Oh this is just silly.

Gee, she had to go the college to figure THAT out? Girls been doing that for a few million years.

Bill C, men have always been using their money and power to get sex. Women use sex to get money and power. Both are corrupt and both are wrong.

The good news is not all people are as scuzzy as either scenario.

Huh….mutually satisfactory arrangements worked out between consenting adults are corrupt and wrong?

Let’s get the government involved! A camera in every bedroom! A monitor on every mind!

Oh stop with post-modern pseudo-intellectual twaddle, hun. With fake boobs like that NOBODY is going to take you seriously. Anyway, in my opinion she is not from this planet. Clearly a Hooterian probe.

An instance where she is going to learn the true price, but have to clue to the value.

See, what this prostitute isn’t thinking about is that the loser whore-purchaser doesn’t have to be gentle. Until he gets his, she is his slave.

Monetary value is a tool to keep prostitutes in place.

I’m really really really tired of looking at this girl’s boobs every time I check in…..just sayin’

NewJerseyGirl on January 25, 2009 at 3:03 PM

Men don’t ever get tired of looking at boobs … sorry.

Ditto on all the loser comments … paying $3m+ for bad sex is just insane. I hope he has the sense to defraud her, and skip the country bill unpaid.

Betcha he backs out if she insists on her choice of escrow.

Kristopher on January 25, 2009 at 3:37 PM

It’s telling that this deflowering will take place in Nevada. A whore by any other name… is still a whore.

I bet her parents are quite proud they sent her to college.
