Breaking: Christine O'Donnell has had sexChristine O'Donnell

Stop it with all those “41-year-old virgin” jokes, OK? Delaware Senate candidate and anti-masturbation activist Christine O’Donnell has totally had sex. She admitted it in 2004, to the Wilmington News Journal, in a piece about her lawsuit against the Intercollegiate Studies Institute for gender discrimination:

And while people who recognize her from TV may think she’s always been a Christian leader and activist, that wasn’t so. Her family was Catholic, but her parents weren’t strict.

It was in college at Fairleigh Dickinson University in New Jersey that O’Donnell did things she regrets — drinking too much and having sex with guys with whom there wasn’t a strong emotional connection. But it was also during college that she found her faith again and chose to live a life of chastity.

And I guess it was those terrible experiences that led her to spend her life telling girls never to feel lust, which is a sensible and realistic thing to recommend.

Despite her post-collegiate ban on lustful thinking and gross touching, O’Donnell has gone on dates. Earlier today, we learned that O’Donnell isn’t married yet because she is too much like Eowyn, shieldmaiden and White Lady of Rohan.
