Hi Edgar, The original meaning of the word virgin was a woman who is not under the dominion of any man - as in Vestal Virgins. The prostitutes at Aphrodites' temples were also referred to as virgins. Besides, I figured if Queen Elizabeth the 1st could reclaim her virginity, so can I.
I've always been a lesbian. It just took me a very long time to figure out that wanting children didn't make me heterosexual. And there was almost no cultural support in such matters for young people when I was growing up. Zen has been a big help to me in this, by the way.
