Male University Students Get Out The Vote

Ugandan male students will turn out in droves this next election. Why?
KAMPALA (Reuters) - A Ugandan member of parliament has pledged to reward girls for their chastity by paying their university fees if they are virgins when they leave school, a local newspaper said Wednesday.
To add insult to injury, the plan would only be offered to women.

Bbaale County MP Sulaiman Madada said any girl in his district who wanted to take part in the scheme aimed at promoting girls' education would be given a gynecological examination by health workers to check they were virgins.

"The criterion is that a student must be a virgin and from Kayunga district," he told the state-owned New Vision. The MP did not extend his offer to young men.

Everyone say it together now: "But I'm still a virgin. That happened when I was riding my bicycle!"

The proposal is an AIDS prevention measure in one of the former highest AIDS places in Africa.

You can buy sex. Can you buy virginity?

Virginity is for sale? I thought that was illegal.
