Why do we consider sex as ultra-important and some kind of ridiculous rite of passage? (self.AskMen)

I'm a 21 year old virgin. I've had two relationships, neither of which have developed to the point of me actually having any sex. As far as this is concerned, I'm really not at all surprised. I'm overwhelming, overweight, and an übermensch of geeks and nerds everywhere (seriously, D&D, science facebook posts, and pokemon4lyf. I even grow a disgusting neckbeard, as a result of being blonde).
That's not what I'm here to talk about, though.
Being a virgin doesn't bother me at all. The fact that men do some kind of virgin shaming bullshit, not unlike slut shaming for women, strikes me as genuinely pathetic of our entire gender. As if someone's self worth should be legitimately generated from their ability, or lack thereof, to stick their dick into somebody. That's just fucking ridiculous. Yet, we still do it! Why do we do that to people? For a long time, I WAS a little ashamed of my situation, but that changed when I stopped and thought "holy crap of all the stupid fucking things to get upset about." I don't see why I should care if women don't like me. I don't see why we should antagonize other men for that. Someone wanna tell me why we should?
