Unnormal Normalcy

Just News and Ramblings From Your Average Author

Promoting Poor Choices

Rant begin:

While I was at the local grocery store, I happened to notice that the magazine rack had quite a few magazines (one of them was “People” but I don’t remember what the other two were) with headlines about the “Teen Mom.” The TV show. About girls having babies at 16 or something, and still living normal teen lives.

Are you kidding me?

It’s one thing to make a mistake and to do what you feel is best for you, your baby, and your family – whether that be adoption, abortion, or keeping the child. It’s another to get knocked up at 16 and go on a TV show where you get to make your life complete fiction. Now 16-year-old girls think it’s okay to get pregnant because those girls on TV did it, and they still live pretty normal lives. If you’re going to be that stupid, at least get on a show that will actually educate other teens. Show them that you actually don’t get to live like a normal teenager when you are a mother and still in high school.

TV is not real life. Not even “reality TV” is real. Now I am going to have to pay for you to get food stamps and WIC until you hit menopause because there is no way in hell you will get an education for a career that will enable you to raise this child on your own, since the guy rarely stays around. And your family is not going to support you for the rest of your life.

If you can do it, yay, kudos for you. But, more likely, you will not make it. Cold, hard facts of life. If you want to have sex that young, it’s your choice. I don’t deny that. Just use your brain, and actually pay attention in your health class.

And, for the love of every god and goddess known to man, don’t watch a show that tells you that it’s okay to have babies at 16!

Rant end.
