Madonna/Whore: T.I. Edition

Content Warning: Talk of Sexual Politics 

By now, you’ve heard rapper T.I. requires virginity checks of his daughter, even after she’s 18. Apparently, she has some magical hymen which can be checked.  

It’s okay, he thinks. He just does not want his daughter to be a whore. 

Because whores are ruined forever. 

Because he suffers from Madonna/Whore syndrome. 

Madonna/Whore Syndrome is a predominantly male (yes, women can suffer from this too) train of thought that a woman must be a virginal Madonna (originally given to the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus) to be worthy of love. Any sexual contact at all, even a kiss on the cheek in some circles, makes you a whore. You are either a Madonna or a whore. 

And a whore is ruined forever. 

There is no grace for the whore. 

There is no forgiveness for the whore. 

Does he understand that, in the Bible, the very book he probably uses to justify his behavior; MEN must adhere to the same exacting standard he is subjecting his daughter to? The Bible is no respecter of gender or sex.

Funny how sexual sin only seems to apply to women.

Question: Why do I get the feeling T.I.’s daughter will marry the first guy who gets close enough to her and never speak to her father again?
