The tests check the girls are virgins, before they are allowed to start high school. This is not a requirement for the male school boys, please sign, to help stop this draconian exercise >http://act.watchdog.net/petitions/3799?n=33664018 .Ru5Uo2

Signed with steam coming out of my ears! So much of human society is male chauvinistic in the extreme.

Sadly signed...I remember the news stories and petitions on this, but that had to be almost 2 years ago!

My heart stopped as soon as I saw your headline...
Sadly, I assumed this horrible treatment of schoolgirls irlin Indonesia had been stopped.

I'm so sorry I wasn't as vigilant as I should have been :(

Noted and signed. This is an outrageous infringement on these student's rights and yet another step towards female suppression by government based on religious doctrine.

Obsessive, crazy focus on other people's sexual behavior (or absence thereof), in an invasive way, reminiscent of the old censorship practices, here, wherein the puritanical censors were the ones doing much of the viewing of possible porn, for the presumed sake of sparing the rest of us the horror!
And, yes, so much of the world's societies are/have been patriarchal.

Procedures such as pricking, piercing, incising, scraping, cauterization or burning that are carried out for non-medical purposes are classed by the World Health Organization as mutilation along with practices that alter or remove any part of the genitals. so these poor girls have already been mutilated and now must face annual humiliation.

Thank You Wendy and Patricia G

I previously signed the 2nd one yesterday. My comment is also posted where ever I first saw this last night. It's terrible, damaging to these young girls and we all know just riding a bike or regualr activity as a child can break the part of skin they would assume was done by a sexual method. I think this is disgraceful and worse.

Forgot to say - that this has nothing whatsoever to do with them wanting to make sure all the girl students are virgins (and what about the boys?) - but is clearly a measure put in place to intimidate girls and their loving families who will not want their daughters subjected to a near rape like this - this is child abuse by the authorities!

signed and noted. Something's wrong in the Philippines. Men are checked to ensure they're circumcised prior to getting jobs and now young girls are to be checked for virginity??? Such a thing can't even be checked accurately by any examination. All women are different.
