to all the broohaha over her hat. oh by hat i mean bow. by bow i mean you could see through it. there has really been far too much made of this. my stance on the blogger/editorial relationship is no secret and tavi’s thoughts are very much in line with my own.
i also feel obliged to consider other teens out there these days. whenever i hear people criticizing somebody tavi’s age for taking an incredible opportunity (like haute couture week in paris, or something completely unique) i always recall the pregnant girls at my high school. they got pregnant because they were drunk and stupid, or worse. tavi has actually made something of her teenage exploits, something real and something that will serve her future. so lets at least acknowledge that tavi is not a casualty of high school antics and be thankful she’s not being cast for teen mom, or sixteen and pregnant or true life i’m a teen mom or some crap like that.
and also to tavi’s point…if she’s obstructing your view, fucking ask her politely to move. sheesh. read the whole thing here
This textbook person’s blog was “recommended” to me by tumblr and I just want to log in here to say that I think that this is misogynist bullshit. Not the part about tavi and her hat (right lady? kick as much ass as you can!) The part about teen moms.
Here is the thing. Teenagers have sexual desires. So they have sex. Sometimes they have sex with someone who can get them pregnant. (So nice of you to not mention the dads of these babies who have “stupid” “drunk” young mothers, textbook, you douche.)
GUESS WHAT THOUGH
ANYONE who has sex that involves putting a penis inside a vagina can get (someone else) pregnant. ANYONE.
Sometimes condoms or the pill or whatever just fails you. And it doesn’t matter how smart or drunk or whatever you are, sometimes birth control just fucks up. Sometimes you are young but you want to be a parent. I am not here to say that young moms aren’t great moms, or young dads aren’t great dads.
I am here to say SHUT THE FUCK UP if you think that attending fashion week is somehow a “better” accomplishment than having a child. Those things do not compare to each other. At all.
Also, a baby is “real” - really. I mean, so is a blog, but what are you thinking? - a baby is real.
So fuck you for implying that women who drink in highschool are not worthwhile.
Fuck you for implying that getting pregnant when you (maybe) didn’t intend to makes you stupid, instead of just unlucky.
And fuck you for shaming young women who are sexually active. Fuck that right the fuck up. That last one is a fuck you with a big pink non-view-obscuring bow right on the top. Sex is awesome, however you do it, whoever you do it with, and if you get pregnant, or get someone else pregnant, it is definitely way the fuck out of the purview of some asinine blogger to presume that you made a mistake and should stay a virgin forever and ever.
HAVE SEX WEAR BIG HATS GET DRUNK BE HAPPY ABOUT YOUR LIFE AND DON’T APOLOGIZE TO THIS “TEXTBOOK” DOUCHEBAG, whatever you do.
Please blog more.
