Here's How Twitterati Reacted to the US Rapper's Statement:
A virgin is someone who’s never had sex. But “sex” means different things to different people, so “virginity” does too. Many don't care what it means or think it matters. Whatever you believe, the fact is you can’t tell if someone’s had sex by checking their hymen.

Rapper T.I. says that he takes his daughter to the gynecologist to make sure her hymen is still intact!

People Questioned The Rapper's Parenting:
T.I. is disgusting to discuss his daughters sex life
Then to have the double standard of being ok with your 15 year old son having sex. And like, are you gonna beat her ass if she did?
And this feels like that "I didn't want a daughter bc I treated women like trash" bs.

T.I. said, "So we'll go and sit down and the doctor comes and talk, and the doctor's maintaining a high level of professionalism. He's like, 'You know, sir, I have to, in order to share information'—I'm like, 'Deyjah, they want you to sign this so we can share information. Is there anything you would not want me to know? See, Doc? Ain't no problem.'" She added, "I will say, as of her 18th birthday, her hymen is still intact."

Just check the hymen, please, and give me back my results expeditiously.'"
