    You show a talent for extraordinarily fine nuances, King! 🙂
    Let’s start with #6 and see what we can do with your deeply intriguing premise.

    Virginity is a social construct highly valued in culture, religion, and society that has a presumed invisible superiority over an individual’s physiological interpretation.

    —I like the audacity of suggesting that virginity is anything other than physiological.
    —I notice you haven’t specified “female virginity.” I wonder if you’re planning to draw distinctions between male and female virginity or even consider male virginity.
    —Mostly I presume you’re fixated on female virginity because of your claim that it’s highly valued. You’d have to convince me that male virginity is highly prized.
    —Your premise might be too broad if you’re planning any extensive comparisons among the Cultural, Religious, and Social values placed on virginity (especially if you’re planning to compare multiple cultures and religions).
    —You’re responsible to explain who PRESUMES the superiority.
    —You’ll also be responsible to explain what’s INVISIBLE about virginity’s superiority. Does it have anything to do with the supposed visible evidence of female virginity? [I just saw a moment in a movie set in the 1970s in which a mother says to her daughter: “You’re not graduating from pads. Try convincing your new husband it was just a tampon.”
    —Most importantly, you’ll need to explain what you mean by an individual’s “physiological interpretation.” To me it seems you might mean “psychological interpretation.” Do you? Are you suggesting that an individual could be technically (maybe physically or physiologically) a non-virgin but feel psychologically otherwise? Or am I missing the point completely?

    I know it’s only been a day or so since I left the note above, but you haven’t responded. We’ll chat later today in your Zoom conference. Don’t forget.

      Hello,
      I hope I am replying to your comment correctly (only time will tell). As you know, today, I talked with about adding a new perspective to my hypothesis. And as you also know, I am in the process of revising my hypothesis to make it worth wild. To remind you, and myself even, my new perspective being that “society is subconsciously objectifying women.” I made this comparison to the NPR podcast, “The Island of Stone Money.” Now with that said, I also want to stick to the three pillars of my hypothesis (focusing on female virginity, how men define female virginity, and how men define female virginity in a Western culture). Now my challenge being, how do I turn my three strong pillars and new perspective into a strong and counterintuitive hypothesis? Thanks a million!
