- Certification of Virginity for women.... and men??

I come across an article in today local newspaper about this private clinic in Paris that provide a medical service that getting popular among women, especially Muslim women. The popular medical service they provide is the ability to "restore" women's virginity for a price of about $4000. Actually quite a reasonable price for restoring one's illusion of piety.

The next question is.. why do you have to go thru all this? Are we in a state of denial? Though we never come across issue of annulment in marriage because of viginity issues here in Singapore. I wonder if the closet have been filled up with quiet dissent.

Not that I condone free sex among women, especially Muslim women but do Muslim men present indirect pressure to women with silent ideology about virginity? Medically proven, there are alot of other issues that can make women lose their virginity. So I dont think this medical practice will be in demand here... I sure hope not.

But you will never know, the next thing Muslim women are needed to submit before they get married, is the “Certification of Virginity”. As what the article claimed being requested by some Muslim ladies now for marriage purposes.

I am quite sceptiical that this article is done to highlight medical services but merely to mock the Muslim perception of issues pertaining to one’s practise as a Muslim. Nevertheless it is an issues that we must be able to openly discussed and not to let it be swept under the rug or the bed for that matter... lame huh?

Lame or not, to be fair to Muslim ladies, as a Muslim guy I wonder if there are any medical services in this world that can cater to prove men’s virginity to balance the proof of piety....?

Actually what is the theme of your blog? at first i thought it was about Design- phone design, graphic design, art. But it is disturtbingly interesting that you posted this. I also think it is partialy true that the article seek only to mock the peoples of the religion.
Your opinion abt how the local "muslims" here might respond, well i think they are far too advanced to bother abt such things. In fact they might be laughing along with the nonmuslims. Do u think? My sense is, they might even compete to proudly certify themselves as the opposite of "that" now.

Thks for your "plain" comment.. Well actually I dont have a theme for my blog. I just want "to convey ideas" or statement that helps to stirred up people's mind, especially if it touches on my community as a whole.
Well. may be you are right about the last statement. But I dont think that can be label as an "advancement".
