Question are you still considered a virgin if your raped? - March 24th 2010, 11:42 PM

I really, really dont mean to sound retarded at all since i feel i should probably know this by now since im 13, But ive bene wondering.
You know how there is kids that get raped and are as young as 2 to 3 years old at times?
Do they just toatally lose their virginity once they are raped nomatter how old they are?
or are they still considered a virgin since they havent really gotten to make a choice when to lose it? and if they arent considered a virgin anymore then why? just a question i was wondering about.


Met you from a tie between u and me buddy,
Saw you from my wired eyes with a twisted little lie, and my mind told me negative when i had a wish to own you with my heart, buddy and you split like twigs, senses told her i fell for him, and she told me "i loved him, and go get him" And while i said "negative he said "correct" <3

Me and ? = 3 days which =correct

You're considered to have lost your virginity when you have sexual intercourse. And by that I mean penetration. As sad as it is, no matter if it was consensual or not, the person is no longer considered a virgin by definition. They can still call themselves a virgin, though, if they like. It's not like someone is going to be a jerk and call them out on it.

Technically no, it all depends on the person. You can be spiritually a virgin.

I don't personally see them as virgins as they've had intercourse. Obviously it's up to the person if they want to call themselves a virgin or not.

Virginity is totally a personal choice. Some people still see themselves are virgins because it was against their will, and that's okay. Physically, no, they aren't really a virgin. But mentally and spiritually? It's totally up to them.

"Virgin" is such a confusing, vague, and charged word that I think it's totally the individual's interpretation. You're not when you say you're not. Because the distinction--some people think it's vaginal, some people think it's anything sexual (even oral), some people think it's consensual, some don't. To be honest, no one should care if you're a "virgin" except yourself, so it should be up to you how you define.

I agree with the others, physically - no. But spiritually and mentally, yes, because the person didn't want to lose their virginity since they were raped. It's really up to the person and how they feel about it.
