Just read this on someone's blog and it's so true ..
"Defining virginity ultimately has to be an individual journey. From a personal perspective I prefer to say that I was raped as a virgin rather than I lost my virginity to rape. My virginity was never up for grabs as it was always mine to choose to share with another. When considering how we wish to interpret the meaning of virginity perhaps it is worth considering its origin. The Greek work ‘virgo’ was used to describe the goddesses and was seen as a label of strength, independence and power – three qualities that every survivor has in abundance."

I'm sorry to hear about your experience. You've had a rough year :-(

Semantics, honey...once the cherry is gone, its gone...

That is an awesome way to look at it. I have felt the same thing, and the words you put it in are perfect for these situations.
