Remember the good old days when we spent hours speculating on whether Britney and Christina and Jessica had, you know, done a certain something with a gentleman?
Now, years later, our time and attention has focused on the likes of Miley, Lindsay and other young starlets! Miley? Really? I don’t know about you, but at 16, I still had my collection of Barbie Dolls under my bed; I was so admittedly shy that I didn’t want to talk about anything feminine, let alone the big, bad subject of s-e-x.
Hilary Duff is the newest star to defend herself, and I for one have to applaud her. Apparently, the poor girl claims she was misquoted in ELLE when the magazine said she was, indeed, still a virgin.
“You know what? I was quoted saying I was a virgin, but I absolutely did not say that,” Duff reveals. “”That’s nobody’s business but my own. Somehow it turned into a bad thing!”
YOU GO, MS. DUFF! You are absolutely right. It IS no one’s business. I am tired everyone and their brother speculating so publicly on a topic that should be a very private one for a woman. Leave us women some dignity, please. It’s very rare that we speculate if, say, Zac Efron, or vampy Robert Pattinson, has done the deed. So why the double standard? Oh, that’s right, because women are expected to be prim and proper and always remain in their place. What is this, the age of AMC’s Mad Men? I thought we had advanced farther on the evolutionary scale. It’s quite sad, actually. But Kudos to you, Hilary!
