Real virgins lose virginity
The fact that this dude had never done it was, for some reason, headline — worthy news. But why is this such a big deal anyway? Why do we, as a society, care so much that this man has never had sex? The problem starts with the fact that so few of us realize virginity is nothing more than a social construct. In other words, the fact that Colton Underwood made headlines for being a virgin was no coincidence — he was going against a norm that says men are supposed to get high fives for losing their virginity as soon as humanly possible, while women are supposed to sit around with their legs crossed tightly until they find The One.
