Kim: Thanks for clarifying your chicoe of the Virgin as the name for the archetype you write about. While it makes eminent sense, especially when situated in a historical context, it is unfortunate that the word virgin has a relatively fixed and limited meaning in contemporary culture. Muddying the waters further is the fact that the word virgin is invariably applied if not strictly but almost always to females (the movie of about the 40 year male version notwithstanding!).I wanted to know if you have done any reading about the concept of differentiation , a term used to describe the balance between being true to one's own values while simultaneously committing to a relationship. I'm asking because it seems to me that that is what the Virgin's Promise is all about, i.e. adhering to his/her own inner values and still remaining engaged with the community be it family, partner or the broader society ( Bend it Like Beckham , Billy Elliot and so many other films you dissect in your book.I may be off base with this, but I'd really like your perspective.Thanks again, Kim keep up the insightful work!
