It’s called Obamacare because Obama Cares about your health.
[TW: graphic/violent depictions of childbirth]
“ I am very well known for my horrific childbirth scenes. All twelve of my published fiction books have them somewhere. I don’t really know why I do them save that they’re great dramatic value — and none of…
here are my thoughts.
first off let me tell you this. i am a feminist. i believe that women have rights in the matter of their body, career and being treated just as men are. but not only that, i believe in females rights in general. i think that just because we are under the age of being legal, we should still have rights just as those we look up to do. and for the most part, we do.
so here i posted this photo of the 16 and pregnant series logos.
everyone of the teenage mothers chose to be aired on the mtv show. and that’s their right. hoorah for them, they made a decision to be on television for all of america to see their struggles in a brand new life to come that they clearly cannot handle. but i’ll still applaud them; they’ve gotten just what they wanted. fame. just until it all falls a part. but by then, its too late.
okay, so obviously i watch the show. but not on a weekly basis. when it’s on and i happen to be slumped on the couch with nothing else to do, i’ll sit and watch. but i’ll tell you this, im not faithful.
so i have a question. where would these girls be if they weren’t on mtv? the best possible answer i can come up with, is this. a few of them may have not ended up in jail. well. janelle may have. but thats janelle. she’s something else anyway. they wouldn’t be getting boob jobs, becoming an abusive partner, leaving their children behind because they think its okay, tearing relationships a part because noone knows how to be civil for a 2 year old. its not that difficult. just grow up. that’s the answer. really. thats it. but of course its easier said then done. they’re famous now because of all the dumb shit they do.
so now for the audience.
its inappropriate in the first place. now for teen-agers to watch it is just as wrong. i personally don’t like to watch a show that glorifies pregnancy at such a young age because in the end, it all works out. and for the most part, that’s correct. but its wrong. totally completely wrong on so many levels.
back in the day when our parents were our age, you wouldn’t ever hear a word about sex. of course this doesn’t apply to every parent, but for the most part, this is the case. it just wasn’t okay to talk about sexual relations and activities outside of the relationship. here’s another question. would you like america to know and see that you have sex with your partner? would you like them to watch you struggle at being a parent, and become famous because of one little mistake you made? i sure as hell wouldn’t. so why would you watch it? because these girls are okay with it, they obviously don’t care, they signed up for the show. yeah, that’s what i thought. but do you really think thats why they signed up for the show? give them atleast a little credit, they were in it for the money, for the fame. they were just unfortunate to not see the outcome of it all.
so here i’ll try to conclude my thoughts.
i don’t think sex and pregnancy should be advertised in any way. we learn about it in high school, and while that may not be enough, there can be something done about it. condom advertisements, abc family’s secret life, mtv’s teen mom series, the list can go on. it all needs to go.
we’re teen-agers. clearly we can’t handle sex. it gets in the way of everything we do. so why set us up to fail, and fix the morale that could seriously help our generation and more to come.
