From an article about a clampdown on women's gyms in Saudia Arabia:

"Football and basketball are sports that require a lot of movement and jumping," Sheikh Abdullah al-Maneea, member of the official Supreme Council of Religious Scholars, said in a religious opinion published in Okaz newspaper Thursday.

He said such excessive movement may harm girls who are still virgins, possibly causing them to lose their virginity.

My brain is flatly refusing to process this. It's syntactically correct. All the pronouns and such agree. However, I cannot get my head around the distortion necessary for it to make sense.
