This video is one of the most straightforward CollegeHumor has ever produced -- and they should be commended for it. As the video points out, the incorrect belief in the infallibility of the hymen has led to women being denied jobs, prevented from making rape accusations, and even thrown in jail. It also led to the creation of the Cherry Poppin' Daddies.

Basically, the hymen isn't some magical membrane that can be used to prove much of anything, aside from a woman having a vagina. Some break from sex, some break from gymnastics, and some don't break at all.

Which is kinda like molybdenum, a very tough metal to break, even at high temperatures.
