Immaculate Deception

This will date me more than my 1980’s scrunchies, but back in the day we talked about a Virgin-Whore complex. It was always a good conversation starter for we head-up-our-asses graduate students and guaranteed to get a rise out of the Gender Historians among us. Tempers boiled and the fool who stirred that tautological turd was summarily chastised. Still, these gals were less radical than their Women Studies aunties who came before them, who sacrificed family and motherhood to study working class women and the evolution of speculums. Because of them both virgins and whores can attend university with impunity.
