Now On Sale: European Hymen Restoration for Muslim Brides

At what price chastity? Unable to use the traditional ‘A spring came loose in my bicycle seat’ excuse to explain away a broken hymen, an industry of plastic surgeons specializing in virginity restoration is growing in Europe, pandering largely to Muslim women about to get married.

There’s no real need to emphasize the barbaric, misogynistic stupidity of this, is there? I hate to break it to Islam, but believe it or not, women are human beings who largely enjoy sex as much as men, and by god certainly have a right to do with their bodies whatever they please. I suppose that includes getting their hymens stitched together, but you know what I’d rather see? More hard drinking, smoking, swearing and screwing girls in hajibs, and less superstitious misogynists oppressing them while counting their self-righteousness by the number of virgins they’ll get to screw in heaven.

Save the emails: I know there are moderate Muslims. Those aren’t the guys we’re talking about here.

On a lighter note, the linked article mentions that, outside of getting your hymen repaired, a woman can also invest in a virginity certificate. Doesn’t that sound like a great job? “Hello, Mr. Al-Masoud? John Brownlee here. I’ll be your daughter’s virginity inspector.”
