The recent controversy surrounding T.I.'s comments about keeping tabs on his daughter's virginity has caught the attention of two New York lawmakers, who are looking to make the practice a felony. Democratic pols, state Sen. Roxanne Persaud (D-Brooklyn) and Assemblywoman Michaelle Solages (D-Nassau), introduced the new bill.“These examinations are not only a violation of women’s and girls’ human rights, but in cases of rape, can cause additional pain and mimic the original act of sexual violence, leading to re-experience, re-traumatization and re-victimization,” the two argued in the proposal.

Assemblywoman Michaelle Solages addressed T.I. comments directly in a phone interview with The Post, “I was horrified to see this was happening. If a celebrity can impose his power to ensure his 18-year-old daughter gets checked, imagine what can be done in households across New York state?”
